Chinese outlet, TecLab has once again leaked the review of a major product, well ahead of the official embargo. We’re talking about the RTX 3080 which was tested across a slew of synthetic and gaming benchmarks. The test bench consisted of a Core i9-10900K paired with 32GB of DDR4-4133 (CL17) memory, and all the games were tested at 4K ultra. We’ll be comparing these with our own tests of the RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 Super wherever possible. Let’s get to it:
In Far Cry 5, the RTX 3080 is roughly 55% faster than the RTX 2080 Super and 35% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti at 4K ultra. That’s a decent gain but not quite as high as NVIDIA was marketing. No surprises here.
Assassins’ Creed Odyssey shows similar stats, with the RTX 3080 netting 67 FPS at 4K ultra, making it 70% faster than the RTX 2080 Super and once again, 35% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti.
In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, with RTX turned off, the RTX 3080 is around 50% faster than the RTX 2080 Super and 30-35% faster than the Turing flagship, the RTX 2080 Ti.
We see the same gains in Control, Death Stranding, and HZD, with the RTX 3080 leading the RTX 2080 Super by 50-55% and the RTX 2080 Ti by 30-35%. The power consumption of the RTX 3080 in these tests was approximately 500W, around 50-60W higher than the RTX 2080 Ti under load. Not bad, but not exactly a 90% gain in performance per FPS either.
The embargo for the RTX 3080 reviews is set to lift on the 14th of September.
