Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC 12G Review

[ad_1]

Although more detailed benchmarking results in nicely laid out graphs will soon follow, below are the testing results we have so far on the RTX 3080 Ti compared to the other relevant entries in the GeForce range, and this is basically all the information you need to know when making a decision as to whether to buy the card (assuming you can find one).

CS:GO (4K, Max Settings, Average FPS)
RTX 3090 : 481
RTX 3080 Ti : 489
RTX 3080 : 435
RTX 2080 Ti : 336

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (4K, Ultra Settings, Average FPS)
RTX 3090 : 61
RTX 3080 Ti : 61
RTX 3080 : 59
RTX 2080 Ti : 40

Red Dead Redemption 2 (4K, Ultra Settings, Average FPS)
RTX 3090 : 96
RTX 3080 Ti : 94
RTX 3080 : 86
RTX 2080 Ti : 59

Red Dead Redemption 2 (1440p, Ultra Settings, Average FPS)
RTX 3090 : 144
RTX 3080 Ti : 141
RTX 3080 : 129
RTX 2080 Ti : 93

Red Dead Redemption 2 (1080p, Ultra Settings, Average FPS)
RTX 3090 : 175
RTX 3080 Ti :163
RTX 3080 : 152
RTX 2080 Ti : 117

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider (1440p, Ultra Settings, Average FPS)
RTX 3090 : 168
RTX 3080 Ti : 169
RTX 3080 : 162
RTX 2080 Ti : 119

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider (1080p, Ultra Settings, Average FPS)
RTX 3090 : 186
RTX 3080 Ti : 181
RTX 3080 : 179
RTX 2080 Ti : 155

As you can see in the above benchmarking, the 3080 Ti is indeed a ridiculously powerful graphics card, and certainly takes the title of best gaming GPU from a purely power based perspective. The card closely rivals and often beats the RTX 3090, despite costing $300 less, which just goes to show that the loss of that 12GB VRAM is relatively meaningless when it comes to gaming.

However, the big question here is whether the increase in performance is worth it for what is a $1,199 MSRP card for the Founder’s Edition or $1,299 for the Gigabyte AIB (if you’re lucky enough to find either at this price, which is doubtful given the current market). Remember that the Founder’s Edition of the RTX 3080 had an MSRP of $699 before the great silicon shortage sent the market crazy, which essentially means you’re paying over 71% more for a graphics card that’s only performs 15% better at best in the tests we’ve done, and often substantially below this.
