NVIDIA RTX 4080 Super is 4x Faster than the PS5: RTX 4090 up to 5x Faster?

The Radeon RX 7900 XTX can keep up with the RTX 4080 Super in rasterized (no-ray tracing) games but falls behind in ray tracing

NVIDIA’s recently launched RTX 40 Super GPUs are among the fastest on the market. The GeForce RTX 4080 Super is the second fastest graphics card, second only to the RTX 4090. Digital Foundry has analyzed the progress of PC hardware since the release of the Sony PS5 and found some interesting numbers. The comparison was conducted using the console’s Quality Mode with 4K set as the output resolution (Quality Upscaling).

The GeForce RTX 4080 Super was configured using the equivalent settings alongside DLSS 2 and 3 (+FSR 2). The result highlights the colossal difference between console and high-end PC hardware. The GeForce RTX 4080 Super is 3.2x and 4.2x faster than the PS5 with DLSS 2 and DLSS 3 Frame Generation, respectively.

Three games were tested: Alan Wake 2, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Cyberpunk 2077. These titles are known to stress even the fastest of GPUs, and in each of them, the RTX 4080 Super is over 3x faster (4x with DLSS 3) than the PS5.

The Radeon RX 7900 XTX can keep up with the RTX 4080 Super in rasterized (no-ray tracing) games but falls behind in ray tracing. It’s up to 3x faster than the Sony PS5 in “Alan Wake 2,” but gets pounded with several ray tracing effects in Cyberpunk 2077. The GeForce RTX 4090 wasn’t included in the comparisons, but we can guess where it’d end up.

We recently compared the GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090 across a dozen games (with and without ray tracing). The RTX 4090 was 27.45% faster than the 4080 on average. Using the same delta, the former should end up being 4x and 5x faster than the PS5 with DLSS 2 and DLSS 3, respectively.
