Covering the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080
launch has been both a pleasure and more than a little intense. Testing three GPUs extensively is no small feat, especially when you've only got a limited number of days to do exactly that. But at the end of the day what I've learned is the the RTX 3080 is a 4K beast. And with the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity
priced in-line with NVIDIA's own Founders Edition it's a great choice for those looking for a more traditional design.
And a card that can also keep things cool and quiet why it lets you play DOOM Eternal.
When it comes to 4K gaming the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity performs an impressive 33% faster on average than the RTX 2080 Ti, with the direct result leading to actually hitting and maintaining 60fps in a title like Horizon Zero Dawn and the always demanding Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. This is important because even though games have been playable at 4K on PCs for a while (though the sweet spot is still 1440p) compromises have to be made to visual quality to hit higher frame-rates. It’s one thing to support 4K it’s another to get these sorts of numbers.

With Death Stranding, Forza Horizon 4, and DOOM Eternal hitting well into the triple digit range it’s worth mentioning that with HDMI 2.1 support on the RTX 3080 is perfect for a large TV that supports 4K 120Hz gaming.
