As expected there is a big performance hit, but when you look at the actual numbers vs percents, especially in Metro Exodus where the penalty is the highest, dropping to 36fps or less, with minimums under 30fps, even with a Freesync/G-Sync monitor, clearly a TitanXp and GTX 1080Ti are required, and in the other two games tested frames drop under 60 without either of those two cards as well.

 

So yea, pretty gimmicky.
