Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 topples fellow Ampere card RTX 3080 from its short-lived reign as UserBenchmark's GPU champion and records effectively 19% faster result

The powerful Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 desktop graphics card has become the new champion of UserBenchmark’s GPU comparison chart. Not only has the RTX 3090 removed fellow Ampere card RTX 3080 from the top of the table, it is also the only part that has an average benchmark rating that surpasses 200%.

Yet again, one of Nvidia’s new Ampere products has paid a visit to UserBenchmark. Before we move on to the results, for those that don’t know, UserBenchmark is a highly contentious benchmark database, so take the information recorded simply as illustrative. Only recently, the RTX 3080 was spotted reigning supreme in the GPU chart, although further sample testing since then has reduced its average to 189%, placing it in fourth. Now is the time for the “big ferocious” RTX 3090 to take command.

Two sample tests have been recorded on UserBenchmark for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, with scores of 222% and 227% offering a current average of 225%. This leaves the upcoming Ampere GPU as the only part with an average bench over 200%, with the second-placed Titan RTX far behind on 194%. Comparing the two average results on this particular synthetic benchmark between the RTX 3090 and the RTX 3080 leaves the former with an effective 19% faster speed, although that mark is relevant to this particular test only.

One would expect big performance margins from a graphics card that is going to cost US$1,499 in its Founders Edition form when it is officially released on September 24. Just for curiosity’s sake, the Ampere RTX 3090’s average benchmark results indicate a 29% effective faster speed than the Turing RTX 2080 Ti card. It shouldn’t be too long before the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 shows off its power in other synthetic and gaming benchmarks, but at US$699 it seems certainly worth keeping a closer eye on the attractive GeForce RTX 3080 card, which has posted some impressive test results so far.
