NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 can run AAA titles at 4K at over 100 FPS, shows Doom Eternal gameplay

NVIDIA recently announced its amazing new range of GPUs. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series consists of the GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090. The 3080 has been positioned as an absolute price to performance beast, and now we have an idea about the real-world performance of this card.

To start off, NVIDIA published a video showing off the performance of the GeForce RTX 3080 in comparison to the last generation RTX 2080 Ti. The test had the game running at 4K with the settings on the Ultra Nightmare preset. Take a look:

Judging by the performance, it looks like we have a card that can make good use of a 4K 144 Hz monitor. Following this, Justin Walker, director of project management for NVIDIA GeForce gave more FPS figures for the GeForce RTX 3080 in a Reddit Q & A session. Here’s a direct quote:

“We’re constantly analyzing memory requirements of the latest games and regularly review with game developers to understand their memory needs for current and upcoming games. The goal of 3080 is to give you great performance at up to 4k resolution with all the settings maxed out at the best possible price.

In order to do this, you need a very powerful GPU with high speed memory and enough memory to meet the needs of the games. A few examples – if you look at Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Wolfenstein Youngblood, Gears of War 5, Borderlands 3 and Red Dead Redemption 2 running on a 3080 at 4k with Max settings (including any applicable high res texture packs) and RTX On, when the game supports it, you get in the range of 60-100fps and use anywhere from 4GB to 6GB of memory.

Extra memory is always nice to have but it would increase the price of the graphics card, so we need to find the right balance.”

So it looks like the RTX 3080 will be the go-to card for those looking to do 4K gaming. Especially if you won’t want to be spending the extra bucks for an RTX 3090. If you think you’ll want a higher FPS, there’s a good chance we’ll get to see an RTX 3080 Ti.
