have you checked to see if the game settings are exactly the same? are you both on the same gpu drivers? are your games up to date?


I wouldnt think so im running a EVGA supernova 750w G3 and my card is just fine.

we are both running max settings on mostly all the games we play and i ask him about his settings in the games we played but for some reason he gets alot higher fps that me
is it possible that my psu is to small to give sufficient power to my rtx 2080 ti my power supply is 750W
 
Our systems are pretty much the same, i dont see why your 750w wouldnt power your system both of them are tier 1 units.

On top of my system specs in my sig I also run 2 SSD, a 6TB WD platter drive, 6 case fans, and a Sound Blaster ZxR sound card. Just incase you wanted to figure out total power draw.

do a virus, malware scan . You can use windows defender or Malwarebytes . And yea if you decide to go with the windows reset you will have to start from scratch or only keep some files like game saves, word documents etc..
 
Just a thought but where are your games installed? You said you have 6TB of games so i would guess that is on a standard platter drive, are his games installed on a SSD.

Not sure if HDD vs SSD matters for FPS but it just popped in my head, i know it does for load times but have never really heard anything for FPS. Guess tonight i could try it out between platter, sata SSD, and NVME to see if i get different FPS on a game.

i have my game installed on my HDD drive but games that i need to load fast in i have on ssd but i dont think that has anything to do with fps only loading speed i believe, but thanks for the suggestion

but what would be the first thing checked if your gpu didn't perform properly? leaving hardware out because i dont believe its a hardware issue anymore

Get with your friend and put your 2080ti in his system. if its still underperforming compared to his 1080ti then the card is the issue. if it does better they his card then there is still an under lying issue with your computer.

good idea but a bit hard to pull off since he lives 2 hours away, but thanks for the suggestion.
