The graphics card market is in turmoil to say the least. After the launch of the GeForce RTX 30 and the recent AMD announcement regarding the presentation of the Radeon RX 6000, all the insiders are now waiting for the NDA deadline to touch the performance of the GeForce RTX 3000 "Ampere" series; for the new Radeon RX RDNA 2 we will have to wait, but at the time of launch (October 28) we will already know where the AMD offer will go and how much it can worry NVIDIA.
In this regard, we report the latest alleged benchmarks concerning the GeForce RTX 3080, which appeared in the past few hours on the network with very interesting results.
The tests in question, which at the moment we cannot fully confirm, concern in particular the 3DMark benchmark suite, known to test the brute power of graphics cards, with results that however sometimes do not always faithfully reflect the scenario. in the gaming field (ed).
Turning to the numbers, however, the GeForce RTX 3080 manages to beat a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with a difference of up to 45% (3DMark Fire Strike Port Royal), while compared to a GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER the gap grows up to 69%.
For convenience, we summarize the results that emerged from this round of tests with the performance difference compared to the GeForce RTX 20 expressed in parentheses.
GeForce RTX 3080 3DMark:
- 3DMark Fire Strike Performance 31919 (+ 25% RTX 2080Ti, + 43% RTX 2080S)
- 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme 20101 (+ 24% RTX 2080Ti, + 45% RTX 2080S)
- 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra 11049 (+ 36% RTX 2080Ti, + 64% RTX 2080S)
- 3DMark Fire Strike Time Spy 17428 (+ 28% RTX 2080Ti, + 49% RTX 2080S)
- 3DMark Fire Strike Time Spy Extreme 8548 (+ 38% RTX 2080Ti, + 59% RTX 2080S)
- 3DMark Fire Strike Port Royal 11455 (+ 45% RTX 2080Ti, + 64% RTX 2080S)
Moving on to games instead, we get more data about the GeForce RTX 3080 struggling with some titles tested at 4K resolution; among them Far Cry 5, Borderland 3, AC Odyssey, Forza Horizon 4 and Shadow of The Tomb Raider. In this case the comparison is with the only GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, practically outclassed by its older sister.
The gap in the titles mentioned above reaches 62% (on Far Cry 5), a percentage that rises up to 70/80% in the case of games that support DLSS. These are currently the first unofficial results, we just have to wait for September 14, the expiry day of the NDA imposed by NVIDIA.
