When I say max. I mean everything on rtx,dx12 + everything set to ultra.

Results with 7700k at stock and 2080ti gaming x trio at stock.
"stock" as in factory tweaked/overclocked a bit already, btw this might interest you: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/msi-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-gaming-x-trio-review,29.html
Basically an "automated" overclocking tool, they saw a 4.5% performance lift, with their own tuning being a bit better at 5.5%.

They got that improvement by implementing "variable rate ray tracing", so basically making calls of whether something needs to be traced, e.g. outside of view, or able to "recycle" a previous result as nothing changed.
They should have done the above already beforehand.

Shadow of The Tomb Raider should be interesting as they want to use both DLSS and RTX.

Battlefield V also only uses reflections, not the lighting/shadows one (RTAO I think it's called). Now that one will look amazing if we can get good framerates on that.
