During the presentation of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture we were able to confirm that the GeForce RTX 3080 is emerging as one of the graphics cards with the best price-performance ratio of this new generation, since it doubles the performance of an RTX 2080 and its price is less than  the RTX 2080 Founders Edition which costs around $849, while the GeForce RTX 3080 will have a $719 price tag.

It is clear that NVIDIA has done its homework. I understand that this statement may not appeal to everyone, but it is the reality. Don’t get me wrong, I hope AMD breaks it down with RDNA 2 architecture and that we see a next-gen graphics card war, as in the end the winners will be us, the consumers , but seeing this changes, the fact is that Ampere’s architecture is truly revolutionary, and that the GeForce RTX 30 is shaping up to be a very solid value.

NVIDIA wanted to go further, and they published a direct comparison in which they face GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in DOOM Eternal.

GeForce RTX 3080 outperforms GeForce RTX 2080 Ti by up to 50%

You don’t have to try too hard to see the performance difference between two graphics cards, it is huge. In this performance test DOOM Eternal has been configured in 4K resolution and maximum quality , and as we can see the GeForce RTX 3080 has no problem always staying above 110 FPS, while the RTX 2080 Ti drops to lows that are around the 80 FPS.

Average values ​​are difficult to calculate as the frame rate per second is highly variable, a “common evil” in games based on the idTech 6 (DOOM 2016) and idTech 7 ( OOM Eternal) engines, but the GeForce RTX 3080 hovers around 140-150 FPS on average , roughly, while the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti stays more in the 90-100 FPS range . Then I leave you a comparison with the specifications of both graphics cards so that you will have a better idea.

GeForce RTX 3080 specs

  • GA102 graphic core at 8 nm
  • 8,704 shaders at 1,440 MHz-1,710 MHz.
  • 272 texturing units.
  • 88 raster units.
  • 272 tensor cores.
  • 68 RT cores.
  • 29.7 TFLOPs of power in FP32.
  • 10 GB of GDDR6X at 19 GHz.
  • 320-bit bus.
  • 320 watt TDP.
  • Requires a 12-pin connector and a 700-watt, 38A power supply.

GeForce RTX 2080 Ti specs

  • TU102 graphics core.
  • 4,352 shaders.
  • GPU at 1,350 MHz-1,545 MHz.
  • 272 texturing units.
  • 88 raster units.
  • 544 tensor nuclei.
  • 68 RT cores.
  • 13.4 TFLOPs of power in FP32.
  • 352 bit bus.
  • 11GB of effective 14GHz GDDR6 memory.
  • 250 watt TDP. You need two 8-pin power connectors. A 650 watt 36A source is essential.

We think the most important thing that we must make clear from this performance comparison, beyond that important difference in performance, is that the GeForce RTX 3080 has finally made it possible to play in 4K resolution with maximum quality and take advantage of it optimally a 144Hz monitor. With this in mind, it is not surprising that the big players in the sector have started betting on 1080p monitors and 360Hz refresh rates.

If you have a GeForce RTX 20 series and you are thinking of upgrading to the next generation of NVIDIA, we should remind you that prices in the second-hand market are falling considerably.
