With overclocking and power limits increased, the RTX 4080 will gain up to 9% in performance. Given that the test was conducted using a somewhat customized RTX 4080 model with an NVIDIA reference board and a relatively modest power limit modification, the result is impressive (only by 10W).
Videocardz received some results using a stock RTX 4080 with the power limit set to maximum and further clock modification. In 3DMark TimeSpy Extreme, the card performs by up to 9%, while in 3DMark Port Royal, it improves by up to 7%.
Chiphell has gaming results from known hardware leaker “MEGAsizeGPU/BFK9K” using RTX 4080 with functional drivers. The card was tested in a variety of titles, including an enhanced Forza Horizon 5, COD MW2, Cyberpunk 2077, Borderlands 3, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
For this test, the leaker utilized a Ryzen 7 7600X CPU, so if you have benchmarks with a comparable setup, it may be worth comparing. In any case, unless combined with similar specifications, those results will not tell us much. However, another Chiphell member offered the following RTX 4090/i9-12900KF results for a fast glance:
RTX 4090 vs RTX 4080
•Forza Horizon 5: 147 FPS vs 127 FPS (+15.7%)
•Shadow of the Tomb Raider: 179 FPS vs 129 FPS (+ 38.8%)
•Red Dead Redemption 2: 129 FPS vs 99 FPS (+30.3)
•Cyberpunk 2077: 111 FPS vs 83 FPS (33.7%)
•COD MW2: 137 FPS vs 127 FPS (+7.9%)
The NVIDIA RTX 4080 will come out on November 16, next week. This model has an AD103 GPU with 9728 CUDA cores and 16GB of GDDR6X memory. There is no longer any intention of releasing a 12GB variant; therefore, this is the sole new product offering.
