Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC gaming graphics card review: How well does Ampere perform in 2022?

Good performance but too expensive! The Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC is equipped with a hugely expansive fan, helping it differentiate itself from Nvidia's Founders Edition. In this short review, find out just how well this model navigated its way around our test course and whether it was able to keep up with AMD's RX 7900 models.

Although it's now one and a half years old, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti shouldn't be considered over the hill, in spite of the recent release of successor models. In our review, we take a closer look to see how well this Asus model fares against the competition. Using current games and drivers, we put the TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC through its paces.

The graphics card is finished to a very high level with the surface consisting mainly of metal. We can already reveal the fan has no difficulties in dispersing heat under load. However, it's worth checking case compatibility due to the card's size. Primarily, the height could be an issue. At 12.6 centimeters, space can quickly be at a premium with the side wall. Additionally, space has also to be made for the two 6+2 pin power connectors. Length-wise, at just under 30 centimeters, the graphics card is nothing out of the ordinary. This card was used in our recently reviewed  Intel NUC 13 Extreme Raptor Canyon and fit well inside the case. 

The Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC's power consumption sits at 350 watts which is also in line with the Founders Edition's specifications and is, therefore, higher than the newly announced graphics cards such as the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 or the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT. Externally, the graphics card offers two HDMI v2.1 and 3x DisplayPort 1.4a ports, helping the Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC output 8K at 60 Hz or 4K at 120 Hz. Our tests were able to confirm this.

Synthetic benchmarks and compute performance

In synthetic tests, the Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC can achieve the same performance as an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090. These results run like a red thread through most tests as the difference between the number of both models' CUDA cores is negligibly small. In addition, the benchmarks don't profit from the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090's larger VRAM. However, the difference in performance is much higher when compared to the current Radeon RX 7900 and GeForce RTX 4000 series cards. In synthetic tests, AMD's second-fastest model finds itself roughly 15 percent ahead of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. However, Nvidia consistently lags behind AMD when it comes to professional rendering tests. Regarding photo editing, things look much different with Affinity Photo 2. In this area, the Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC is able to compete with Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4090. AMD is unable to keep up with its new RX 7900 graphics card.

As a small interim conclusion, it is definitely a question of the user's individual case and for which purpose the graphics card should serve.

Gaming benchmarks

Our gaming tests show the Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC to be an excellent performer. Even though one and a half years have passed since its release, the graphics card can play nearly all current games smoothly at 2160p. However, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti struggles to manage just over 40 FPS with two games - A Plague Tale Requiem and Cyberpunk 2077. We have excluded F1 22 as the ray tracing option is activated in the 4K preset. Without ray tracing, substantially higher frame rates can, of course, be expected. Compared to the RTX 4090 or the Radeon RX 7900, the Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC has to admit defeat when it comes to higher resolutions. Nevertheless, the lead the current models enjoy is put into perspective when playing at 1080p as processor bottlenecks prevent full performance levels from being achieved. Consequently, it would be advantageous to take a closer look at the RTX 3000 series to properly compare and prioritize certain games. You can find an excellent overview of various graphics cards' performance in our GPU comparison table.

Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC emissions

New GPU architecture technical advances can clearly be seen in the jump from Ampere to Ada Lovelace. At 1080p our test system's Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC power consumption is on par with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090. In this case, we measured almost 530 watts at the socket. In the stress test, the 100-watt higher power target is the GeForce RTX 4090's undoing. In this area, our test device is much more economical. However, with regard to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080, the Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC consumed 10 % more power in our test system. Concerning energy efficiency, both of the new AMD models (Radeon RX 7900 XTX, Radeon RX 7900 XT) are not where we would have expected these cards to be prior to our review. Nevertheless, future driver updates should ensure improvements follow.  Currently, the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT is more economical than a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti during gaming, even if both models were on an equal footing in our stress test. Regarding performance per watt, you are currently better served by the smaller RDNA 3 GPU.

In terms of noise, the Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC behaves inconspicuously. Although, due to the huge fan, this is something we had expected. The three axial fans only kick in when the GPU temperature reaches 55 °C. We registered 37.5 dB(A) in the stress test, although a slightly higher sound pressure level of just over 38 dB(A) was measured during gaming.

The Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC is certainly not a poor graphics card if we only focus on the graphics card's benchmark performance. Here you have a model with which almost all games can currently be played flawlessly. With 12 GB of VRAM, the graphics card was well-equipped when it was released in the middle of 2021, but, it's worth keeping in mind, high-end models now come with 20 and 24 GB of VRAM. However, the added value is manageable when making a direct comparison between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090.

Features such as ray tracing and DLSS help the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti fare well against the competition. This isn't really an area in which AMD's Radeon RX 7900 XT is faster. However, when it purely comes to rasterization performance without upscaling functions, AMD with RDNA3 manages to outmuscle Ampere. Unfortunately, Nvidia offers the current version of DLSS, including frame generation, only for the RTX 4000 series, with customers from the previous generation left wanting. 

The Asus TUF GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC is without a doubt a good, fast graphics card. However, the high price will put off customers, making the card an unattractive proposition.

The Asus review model used here offers a much larger fan compared to the Founders Edition, and at no time did it encounter problems cooling the graphics card during testing. Fans stop completely if processing load is low, ensuring silent operation in 2D mode. This particular model also remains relatively silent when gaming and can hardly be heard from within the closed case.

In addition to the performance on offer, a graphics card's attractiveness is also always closely tied to the purchase price. This is where the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti currently finds the going tough as the current models are listed at around 949 US dollars. Available models are often priced even higher. This makes the price considerably higher than the RRP of the recently unveiled AMD Radeon RX 7900 models both of which offer more performance at a lower purchase price. For an extra 70 euros, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4080 is a better option and well worth considering.
