The new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card has made its way to the top of UserBenchmark’s GPU charts. The Ampere-based part stole the top spot from Nvidia’s Titan RTX, and it recorded an 11% faster effective speed than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. The Founders Edition of the GeForce RTX 3080 costs from US$699.

UserBenchmark may be arguably one of the most controversial synthetic benchmark databases out there, but it still offers up some interesting details especially when there is no partisan bias involved. Tum Apisak caught sight of an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 sample passing through, and apparently it managed an average benchmark rating of 195%, putting it past the Titan RTX on 194% and far ahead of the RTX 2080 Ti on 175%.

The data and results for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 were based on a solitary sample, while the rating for the RTX 2080 Ti is based on nearly 183,000 tests. Also, the new Ampere graphics card was part of a powerful system that also featured an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU and a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master motherboard. One final consideration to point out is that the unit being tested here was the GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING X TRIO 10G card from MSI, so you would expect a high result from an overclocked part of this caliber.

However, as part of the right system, the Turing RTX 2080 Ti has been recorded at a benchmark rate of 201% (maximum); but a low of 124% gives a broad range of results for the popular graphics card, resulting in the average of 175%. Whether this benchmark rating remains at 11% behind the new RTX 3080’s result of 195% will depend on how following samples of the Ampere part perform on this particular benchmark.

My interest in technology began after I was presented with an Atari 800XL home computer in the mid-1980s. I especially enjoy writing about technological advances, compelling rumors, and intriguing tech-related leaks. I have a degree in International Relations and Strategic Studies and count my family, reading, writing, and travel as the main passions of my life. I have been with Notebookcheck since 2012.
