The GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition from Nvidia is a powerful 4K gaming 4080 graphics card, but it is also quite expensive. If gamers are driven to pay this much, they will surely upgrade to the faster RTX 4080. It is a technological achievement nonetheless and a power to reckon with.
In this article, I put the nVidia 4080 through its limits on our 2022 GPU test platform, powered by a Core I5 i9-12900K CPU and an Asus ROG Maximus Z690 Hero motherboard. The CPU uses a Corsair Hydro Series H100X water cooler and stock clocking rates, which have not been overclocked.
The system includes a Corsair HX1500i 1,500W 80 Plus Platinum power supply, 1TB Corsair MP600 Pro NVMe 4.0 SSD, and 32GB of 5,600MHz Corsair Vengeance RAM. The most recent updates are installed, and Windows 11 Pro is used for all testing.
RTX 4080 Benchmark
The RTX 4080 ti and the more powerful RTX 4090 outperformed everyone else in test results by a wide margin. Although it’s conceivable that these tests aren’t functioning correctly on these new cards—as, has been known to happen with early launch hardware—if they’re genuine, they demonstrate. How significantly more potent Nvidia’s most recent offerings are than RTX 3000 devices from the previous generation. Not even close.
In most synthetic tests, the GeForce 4080 is about two-thirds as quick as the RTX 4090. They work together more closely than in Furmark. However, some bottleneck is probably creating a closer performance there.
RTX 4080 performance
Compared to the RTX 4090, the Nvidia 4080 ti works. Typically roughly as well in games as it does on artificial benchmarks.
In most tests, it produces around 60% and 70% of the frames per second (fps) that the RTX 4090 produces, although there are notable outliers.
The two RTX 40-series GPUs perform similarly in several tests. Because of bottlenecks caused by the CPU or the game engine for that test.
This is apparent in games that enable Machine – learning Super Sampling (DLSS), particularly in Guardians of the Galaxy. The RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 have a bottleneck at 1080p, probably caused by the CPU. When DLSS is enabled at 2K, both GPUs have the same bottleneck at about 170 frames per second. The RTX 4080 can equal the performance of the RTX 4090. In this scenario while still spending substantially less and consuming less power.
Hence there is no purpose in utilizing DLSS at 2K. The RTX 4090 in this situation since you hardly get any good outcomes.
