NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition Review: RTX 3090 performance for less but still a low value proposition

Ti(e)-ing with the 3090. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti arrives as a mid-cycle refresh to supplant the RTX 3080 as the company's fastest gaming GPU nine months after the company first introduced the Ampere architecture. The RTX 3080 Ti sports a slightly cut-down variant of the GA102 GPU that is found in the RTX 3090 with half the VRAM. We take the RTX 3080 Ti FE for a test drive and evaluate how this US$1,199 card stacks up against the RTX 3080 and the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

NVIDIA launched the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti during Computex 2021 last month alongside the RTX 3070 Ti. The RTX 3080 Ti is a slightly cut-down version of the "BFGPU" RTX 3090 and is more of a mid-cycle refresh than anything revolutionary. Essentially, we are looking at a better binned Ampere GA102 chip than the RTX 3080.

The RTX 3080 Ti now supplants the RTX 3080 as NVIDIA's flagship gaming GPU. It arrives at a time when GPU availability is still a concern with most cards selling out quickly and at a significant markup above MSRP. The RTX 3080 Ti can also be viewed as NVIDIA's riposte to a resurgent AMD, which seems to have got its mojo back with the launch of RDNA 2-based GPUs. The Radeon RX 6900 XT comes within striking distance of the RTX 3090 in several titles, meaning gamers need not look up to NVIDIA alone for a flagship gaming experience as long as ray-tracing performance is not the main purchasing criterion. 

Though positioned between the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090, the RTX 3080 Ti leans more towards RTX 3090-levels of performance and is priced at a US$1,199 MSRP to match. While this is US$300 less than that of the RTX 3090's MSRP (US$1,499), it is also US$500 dearer than the RTX 3080 (US$699). In India, the RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition (FE) retails for ₹1,22,000.

In this review, we put the RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition through its paces and see how well this mid-cycle refresh augurs for gamers looking to purchase a new GPU.

A tour of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti FE

Design-wise, there is no difference between the Founders Editions of the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3080 Ti in terms of looks save for the new SKU name. Despite sporting near-RTX 3090 specs, NVIDIA has chosen to retain the 2-slot design of the RTX 3080.

While this is good for case aesthetics, it does not exactly bode well for cooling and fan noise levels as we shall see below. The dual 9-blade 85 mm fans do a decent job at keeping the card somewhat cool, and the metal backplate helps in better heat dissipation to the surroundings. The thermal solution is capable-enough, but it does not quite seem to be in the same league as that of the RTX 3090.

As is the hallmark for Ampere FE cards, we get to see the 12-pin Molex MicroFit 3.0 power connector in the top middle; there's a dual-8-pin to 12-pin connector provided in the box. Connectivity options are the standard fare and include one HDMI 2.1-out and three DisplayPort 1.4a outs. DisplayPort 1.4a enables the RTX 3080 Ti to drive two 8K 60 Hz displays with a single cable each without breaking much sweat while HDMI 2.1 allows for 4K 144 Hz and 8K 30 Hz output.

As is the case with most FE cards, the GeForce RTX logo glows in white and cannot be controlled by RGB software. However, it is possible to control some of the lighting on the inner frame via Corsair iCUE or other third-party RGB apps.

NVIDIA offers a standard three-year warranty on all GeForce Founders Editions cards.

The RTX 3080 Ti FE offers a base clock of 1,365 MHz and 1,665 MHz boost. There is scope for attaining boost beyond this value although we did not find it being able to cross the 2,000 MHz mark like the RTX 3090. The RTX 3080 Ti is rated at a 350 W TGP. It is possible to increase the power target by another 14% to about 400 W, but we ran into stability issues during stress testing.

The RTX 3080 Ti FE maxes out the GDDR6X memory's 384-bit bus, which enables only two VRAM capacities — 12 GB and 24 GB. NVIDIA has reserved the 24 GB offering for the RTX 3090 with an aim to entice creative pros who also game, with the RTX 3080 Ti having to contend with 12 GB. While the card seems to have only 2 GB extra VRAM compared to the RTX 3080, we are looking at a 20% increase in memory bandwidth at 912 GB/s that should augur pretty well for dealing with heavy in-game textures at least in the current crop of AAA titles.

The test bench — Based on the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and X570 platform

We used an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X as the processor of choice. The Ryzen 7 5800X was paired with an MSI Prestige X570 Creation motherboard, 32 GB (16 GB x2) of G.SKILL Trident Z Neo DDR4-3200 RAM (timings 16-19-19-39), and a Gigabyte Aorus NVMe Gen4 1 TB SSD.

Windows 10 21H1 with the latest cumulative updates (Build 19043.1081) was installed on the Aorus NVMe Gen4 PCIe SSD while two 1 TB Crucial MX500 SATA SSDs were used for running benchmarks and games. Resizable BAR was enabled in the UEFI, which may lend a slight performance improvement in select titles.

Cooling the Ryzen 7 5800X was a Corsair iCUE H115i Elite Capellix AIO cooler. The build was housed in a Corsair iCUE 4000X RGB case with a Thermaltake Toughpower 850 W 80 Plus Gold as the power supply of choice. All testing was performed with the case closed to represent typical usage.

A OnePlus U Series 55U1 smart TV running at 4K 60 Hz in Game Mode was connected to the RTX 3080 Ti via HDMI. Color output was set to full 32-bit RGB in the NVIDIA control panel and Windows desktop scaling was set to 100%.

We would like to thank AMD for facilitating the Ryzen 7 5800X CPU, Corsair for the iCUE Elite Capellix AIO cooler and iCUE 4000X case, and OnePlus for the U series 55U1 4K TV.

Synthetic benchmarks — On par with the RTX 3090

The NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti presents an interesting picture when it comes to benchmark results — both synthetic and real world. For all intents and purposes, we are indeed looking at an RTX 3090 here. The RTX 3080 Ti is just two streaming multiprocessors (SMs) short of the RTX 3090 and, for the most part, this seems to have little to no impact in most benchmarks. We do see the RTX 3080 Ti performing better than the RTX 3090 in a handful of tests, probably because software and drivers could have improved over time.

In 3DMark, AMD's RDNA 2-based RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT do have a perceivable edge in all the Fire Strike Graphics tests, though the RTX 3080 Ti more or less ties with the RTX 3090 in Time Spy Graphics. Compared to the RTX 3080, the RTX 3080 Ti can be anywhere between 13% and 17% faster in Fire Strike Graphics depending on the resolution while being only 9% better in Time Spy Graphics.

As expected, NVIDIA cards easily ace their RDNA 2 rivals in the Port Royal ray-tracing benchmark with the RTX 3080 Ti on par with the RTX 3090 and about 13% and 34% faster than the RTX 3080 and Radeon RX 6900 XT, respectively.

The performance gap between the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 seems to widen somewhat in Unigine, particularly in the OpenGL versions of Heaven and Valley benchmarks. Superposition shows the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Ti to be on par with each other. The only exception here is seen in the 720p Low component of the test where the RTX 3080 Ti is nearly 25% ahead of the RTX 3090 probably because this resolution is more CPU-bound. In general, we see that the RTX 3080 Ti is about 14% faster than the average RTX 3080 at resolutions 1080p and above.

Do note that we have used a different CPU this time, the Ryzen 7 5800X, which may impact some of the synthetic benchmark results.

Compute benchmarks — Good gains over the RTX 3080 and RX 6900 XT

The RTX 3080 Ti only has a very slight edge over the average RTX 3090 in ComputeMark overall while being 16% faster than the average RTX 3080 and the RX 6900 XT. A similar trend is seen in the LuxMark Room GPU test as well. However, AMD has a very significant lead over all NVIDIA offerings in the LuxMark Sala GPU test. While the RTX 3080 Ti is about 15% faster in Sala GPU compared to the average RTX 3080, it is 53% behind the Radeon RX 6900 XT. 

Geekbench compute tests show the RTX 3080 Ti having good leads overall. It ties with the RTX 3090 in OpenCL but is interestingly 27% faster in the Vulkan version of the test.

Game benchmarks — RTX 3080 Ti scores a home run at 4K Ultra

NVIDIA pitches the RTX 3080 Ti as the flagship gaming GPU, and it does not disappoint. A good number of titles are playable at fully maxed out settings at 4K close to the 100 fps mark. Only a handful of games such as Cyberpunk 2077 (DLSS off), Total War: Three Kingdoms, and Watch Dogs: Legion (DLSS off) struggle to attain the 60 fps sweet spot at 4K Ultra. Those desirous of making the most of their high-refresh rate displays stand to benefit by lowering the resolution to 1440p.

For the most part, the RTX 3080 Ti FE is well-within the margin of error of the RTX 3090's gaming performance. The slight reduction in CUDA cores and halving the memory from the RTX 3090 seems to have negligible effect in current titles. This is a good thing as it translates to a straight US$300 savings (at MSRP!) from the RTX 3090 if your primary use case is 4K Ultra 60 fps+ gaming.

We found the RTX 3080 Ti to be anywhere between 11% and 22% faster than the Radeon RX 6900 XT in our game test suite. That being said, the Radeon RDNA 2 cards did have an edge in Assassin's Creed Valhalla (+11%, 6900 XT) and Hitman 3 (+7%, 6900 XT).

We tested ray-tracing performance in titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Metro Exodus, Resident Evil Village, and Control with DLSS off and, quite interestingly, the RTX 3080 Ti seemed to offer perceivable benefits over even the RTX 3090 with RT On. Compared to the RTX 3080, we are looking at anywhere between a 12% and 21% uplift in RT performance depending on the resolution. 

NVIDIA seems to have done a good job with the thermals as is evident by the fairly consistent performance near to the 174 fps mark observed in The Witcher 3 stress test at 1080p Ultra. However, we do find that the card can afford attaining a higher fps albeit for a brief period of about five minutes before falling back to the original value. This could probably be due to an opportunistic clock increase at this point during the stress test.
