A suite of benchmarks was posted online and viewed by videocards, and they explain how the RTX 3080 completely stumps on the RTX 2080 and improves the RTX 2080 Ti, which was once a graphics card that once Vividia was the top-of-the-line consumer GPU.
The benchmarks under consideration were for OpenCL and CUDA performance rather than in-game scores. But in a nutshell they state that the RTX 2080 is twice that of the RTX 2080 and 60 percent faster than the RTX 2080 Ti in the QDA benchmark.
On average, the RTX 3080 was some 68 percent faster than its predecessor and 38 percent faster than the RTX 2080 Ti in CUDA tests. In OpenCL tests, the RTX 3080 broke other cards by an average of 68 percent and 41 percent, respectively.
It is worth noting that Nvidia has not confirmed the performance results, and these are the early days of the GeForce RTX 3080. This means that it is likely to have greater performance with more customization through driver updates.
Nvidia has already released a video showing that Doom Eternal 4K is running at 50% on the RTX 3080 at RTX 2080 TI. So if you have an RTX 2080 Ti and are burning $ 699 in your pocket, the RTX 3080 can be upgraded.
We would advise you to catch fire, as AMD is set to launch its Big Navy graphics card this fall. That GPU is known as the “Nvidia-killer” and leaks towards delivering 40 to 50 percent of the RTX 2080 TI. In theory (roughly), this would be equivalent to the RTX 3080.
We’ll have to wait and see what AMD Big Navi finally has to offer. But for PC gamers, fall is going to be an interesting time to get a new graphics card.
