Though it does so during one of the most trying times for hardware enthusiasts, thanks to the current shortages affecting just about any device that can play games. That said, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
does that thing a "Ti" does, improve performance and offer up best in class.
But, with the RTX 3090 already a thing -- albeit a very expensive thing aimed mostly at creators and professionals -- what does that mean for the RTX 3090 Ti?
Following in the footsteps of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti before it, it’s not hard to see why the RTX 3080 Ti is being met with excitement. Even with the high-end creator and industry-focused GeForce RTX 3090 already a thing, with its overkill 24GB of GDDR6X memory, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was inevitable. And in making its debut, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti becomes the new flagship model in the RTX 30 Series.

So then, with the RTX 3090 a known element, where does the RTX 3080 Ti fit into the picture -- performance wise? It goes without saying that it outperforms the previous flagship, the RTX 2080 Ti, by a considerable margin. Blows it away you could say. It also provides a noticeable increase over the 4K powerhouse that is the RTX 3080, but not a monumental one. To summarise (or, spoiler-ise), the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is impressive and performs on par with the most powerful GPU on the planet -- the Geforce RTX 3090. Which we gleaned after conducting a sizable 30 benchmarks across a wide range of games and tests.
