Well, it's here - our full NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founder's Edition
review. NVIDIA's RTX 30 series debut, which we put to the test at 4K and 1440p across a wide range range of games. And we get it to trace a few rays too. The results? Well, that headline should give you an idea of how it stacks up against the RTX 2080 and even the RTX 2080 Ti.
Any review or deep dive into a new piece of tech, especially a graphics card, is an ambient occlusionary tale full of whimsical numbers, charts, and talk about frames, games, and names. Like Ampere, Turing, and GDDR6X. Which we’ll get too – that is if you can resist the temptation to scroll. Go on, resist.
Our Full NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founder's Edition Review
The RTX 3080 story is nuanced, varied, but always impressive. A true crank-up-the-details 4K powerhouse, the sort of generational leap that might arrive after three or four years -- let alone two.
Okay, okay. For the impatient ones out there the RTX 3080 is around 36% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti (the previous $2,000 AUD flagship from NVIDIA) when it comes to 4K game performance. And, it’s 50-60% faster when you factor in ray-tracing. It blows the RTX 2080 SUPER, the 3080’s like-for-like comparison in terms of price-point and naming, away.
Ahem. Back to the show.
