NVIDIA is working on its next generation of graphics processors, based on Ampere. We have come to expect a certain level of performance boost from NVIDIA cards generation after generation. Now we have an idea about how the next-gen NVIDIA GPU, RTX 3080 will perform.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 is said to be based on the Ampere GA102 GPU core. New details about the performance of the RTX 3080 have popped up in a new tweet, showing the card outperforming the RTX 2080 Ti by over 20%, and the RTX 2080 by over 50%.
The RTX 3080 has about 20% increase compared with RTX 2080 Ti

There aren’t any details to back it up, though. No benchmark figures, or frame rate data comparison. So for now, this is just an unbacked rumor that we should take with a grain of salt.
That being said, the performance boost figure looks realistic. The 20% boost will mean that we can expect the RTX 3080 Ti to perform about 50% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti. The performance gain could be even more because the RTX 3080 Ti will have a lot more cores than the RTX 3080.
Other specifications for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 are rumored to be 4352 CUDA, arranged 68 SMs, 10 GB of GDDR6X memory at 19 Gbps in a 320-bit bus at 760 GB/s.
