4K Game Testing
Our next set of benchmarks are all game benchmarks. These will be run and tested at 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution. All scores here are the average FPS (frames per second) recorded.
Ashes of The Singularity
We are running the DirectX 12 version of the game. Using the “High” quality profile we ran the game’s built-in benchmark.
In Borderlands 3 we run the game using DirectX 12 and use the “Badass” preset.
Far Cry New Dawn
In Far Cry New Dawn we select the “Ultra” preset and run the game’s in-game benchmark.
For Metro Exodus we will be using the included benchmarking tool. We use the “High” preset in the tool.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
In Shadow of the Tomb Raider we set the graphics preset to “High” and run the in-game benchmark.
Finally we have Wolfenstein: Youngblood. We set the image quality to the highest setting and run the in-game benchmark.
How much faster is the RTX 3090 than the RTX 3080 at 4K?
We’ve compiled the graph below so you can see how much faster the RTX 3090 is than the RTX 3080 in our Game Tests at 4K.
We also decided to max out our settings on a couple of games to see if there really was any difference. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider (Highest preset) and Metro Exodus (Extreme preset) the RTX 3090 was 9% and 10% faster respecively.
