Since the announcement of the new Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics cards, there has been quite the outcry in the gaming community. The recently released RTX 2080, and 2080 Ti users stand upon an edge, where they rather feel betrayed by the manufacturers. The RTX 3080 offers efficiently improved performance at a very reasonable price, almost cancelling out the sales of 2080 ti for being the better choice among the two in all manners. The extraordinary news that was unleashed upon the community by a twitter user in a new benchmark testing was that the RTX 3080 even pips the mighty RTX Titan.
Recently, the Nvidia RTX 3080 has topped the User benchmark’s GPU charts by being the most effective performing graphic card. The User Benchmark score shows that the NVidia RTX 3080 has crossed RTX 2080 by being 11% more effective in speed. This exhibits the efficiency of the newly released GPUs. ASUS and MSI has recently released the best motherboards for amd processors.
However, the benchmark score is based on a solitary sample, one cannot yet be completely sure of it, adding up the controversies that User Benchmark follows from the time past. The manufacturers are quite sure of the Nvidia RTX 3080 performing far better than the previously launched RTX 2080 and 2080 ti, but how much exactly it exceeds in a manner of power, is yet to be identified through different and more credible plus unbiased benchmarks that will soon follow.
The Benchmark score for the RTX 3080 was published by Tum Apisak, whose comparison puts the RTX 3080 on top of the list with an average benchmark rating of 195%, which in comparison to the RTX 2080 ti is 20% more powerful and only 1% more effective than the Titan RTX. The sample used for benchmark testing by Tum Apisak was the GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING X TRIO 10G card from MSI, an ampere variant of the RTX 3080 and there is certainly the possibility the overclocked variant of the same GPU exceeding against all in power and effectiveness of speed.
As for the credibility of this solo benchmark, Tum Apisak is a known benchmark tester, there is a significant benchmark performed by Tum for UserBenchmark and a lot of them are considered fair by the followers. Judging from his Twitter account’s cover picture, one could say that the user leans more towards the AMD side of things but has been a credible source for benchmarking scores for all manufacturing brands.
The PC paired with RTX 3080 for the benchmarking should also be taken into consideration, the powerful AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU and a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master motherboard is no less of a deal and it provides for better performance overall. Again, this score should not be held final as it is only based upon a single user testing, against the RTX 2080 Ti’s nearly 183,000 tests.
In comparison, the RTX 3080 is one of the most reasonably priced and efficient graphic card from the new 3000 series, including the RTX 3070 and the powerful and steeply-priced RTX 3090. The RTX 3080 offers twice as much Cuda cores, 1.71 GHz Boost clock and 19 Gbps Memory speed against the 1.54 GHz boost clock and 14 Gbps memory speed of the RTX 2080 ti. While the RTX Titan with 24 Gbps memory speed, 1.77 GHz and 4608 Cuda cores, is more heavily featured and offers a lot more power in all manners. However, the topping of RTX 3080’s is solely based on a single user’s score, with no other benchmark review, it cannot be established how low the RTX 3080 can hit or what its peak performance could be.
As for, the RTX 2080 Ti, if paired with the right system it can easily hit up to 201% and can also go right down to 124%. The RTX 3080 currently holds the advantage of having no other benchmark score that can help form up a comparison chart, but soon with more reviews, it will be established whether the RTX 2080 ti stays 11% behind the newly launched RTX 3080 or not.
As the AMD paves way for a new GPU that can provide competition to the RTX 3000 series and be considerably more powerful at a much better price, the Nvidia also plans another response, according to rumours there might be another more powerful and super-efficient variant of the RTX Titan in the works and will be brought right into the market after AMD launches their new powerful Rx 6000 series that will surely give a tough time to its competition.
The release price of the RTX 3080 is around 699$ which is why it is considered a great choice against the RTX 2080 ti of the 2000 series, because not only it offers a reasonable price but is also 11% more powerful according to these new benchmark scores by the Tum Apisak. In no time, more benchmark testing will flow and it will soon be identified whether the new and mighty RTX 3080 can hold its ground or will it be only slightly better than what’s already available in the market.
However, the new benchmark scores that are yet to follow will not be considerably lower than the previous installations, or and neither will they become a deal-breaker, but in both cases, the RTX 2080 Ti’s users do not stand at a good place, unless the manufacturers offer them a token for their bad luck and cover up their misfortune at least for now. A good Motherboard is required to use these graphic cards.
