Working with NVIDIA, the company debuted the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs, which are tailored to promote the fast speeds that immersive, high-performance gaming applications require. Nvidia's new graphics cards are finally here, AMD has its own lineup on the way, and the Xbox Series X is launching in November, with the PlayStation 5 around the same time (probably).
Indeed, a cursory check of the specifications of the RTX 3080 Founders Edition reveals that the card requires two PCIe 8-pin connectors. The first graphics card to get tested was the RTX 3080 on the Compubench test suite, checking how well the card performs in the CUDA and OpenCL tests.
It isn't easy to use the real-time strategy game to determine how good new graphics cards are, however, as it comes with many caveats.
The $699 GeForce RTX 3080 is offering 4K, 60 frames per second gaming and dramatically improved ray-tracing prfmance over the $999 GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Yes, the new flagship GPU will give over 25% better GPU performance than last year's insanely priced RTX 2080 Ti.
I know which card I'd rather have in my PC. In the meantime, we've got a list of every known PC game that now supports RTX and DLSS, and which games that will support it on release, or plan to release an update to support these features.
A few of the games listed below are now waiting on patches to include RTX support, while others will have it readily available when they launch later in 2020 and beyond.
But it is also that, in the same video, a comparison is made with the same id Software and Bethesda video game running on an RTX 2080 Ti, one of the most advanced graphics of the previous generation of Nvidia, delving into the different improvements both in quality visual as in performance, always with the maximum settings.
