Something to wait for: We know that the RTX 3080 is a beast of a card, one which leaves the Turing flagship RTX 2080 Ti throughout the mud. Nvidia simply these days confirmed how the two look at in a 4K showdown on Doom Eternal. Now, the company has promised framerates over 100 fps in completely different AAA video video games, all whereas in 4K with settings maxed and RTX on.
Nvidia yesterday posted a video that displayed the RTX 3080’s ability to power Doom Eternal in 4K at spherical 150 fps with settings turned all one of the simplest ways up. That’s very spectacular, nevertheless what about video video games that aren’t as well-optimized as id Software’s shooter? Nvidia says we’re capable of nonetheless anticipate anyplace between 60 and over 100 fps, even at that top resolution.
In a Reddit Q&A, Nvidia’s director of GeForce product administration, Justin Walker, answered a question on whether or not or not the RTX 3080’s 10GB of GDDR6X was adequate to run next-gen AAA titles.
“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,” said Walker. “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.”
Walker named Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Wolfenstein Youngblood, Gears of War 5, Borderlands 3, and Red Dead Redemption 2 as video video games that may hit that 60 – 100 fps range whereas in 4K with max settings, collectively with any texture packs, and with RTX on the place supported.
In a question referring to the RTX 3080’s ability to deal with 144Hz shows, Walker named Doom Eternal, Forza 4, and Wolfenstein Youngblood as titles that will run at 144fps whereas maxed out at 4K. He added that further demanding video video games akin to Red Dead Redemption 2, Control, and Borderlands Three could possibly be nearer to 60 fps.
As to why the RTX 3080 didn’t embody higher than 10GB of GDDR6X, Walker said it was a matter of balancing worth vs. effectivity. “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.”
The $699 RTX 3080 launches on September 17, though we have now heard stock ranges could very nicely be restricted, so that you’d probably battle to buy one this yr.
Yesterday launched info that an RTX 3070 Ti that features 16GB of GDDR6 could also be throughout the works. If true, don’t anticipate to see one anytime shortly.
