Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition Review: 4K performance and efficiency champ that deserves sub-US$1,000 pricing

Frames wise, fetti foolish. The AD103-based Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 is the company's mainstream flagship gaming GPU based on the new Ada architecture. The RTX 4080 Founders Edition comes across as a capable 4K Ultra gaming GPU with excellent thermals, noise characteristics, and power efficiency. However, the US$1,200 asking price raises questions on the card's prospects in light of the looming threat from the competition.

Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4080 launch started off on a somewhat controversial note, with the company originally having announced two RTX 4080 GPUs — the RTX 4080 12 GB and the RTX 4080 16 GB — alongside the RTX 4090.

Although Nvidia justified the presence of an RTX 4080 12 GB, the press and public weren't too welcoming of branding a supposedly RTX 4070-class card as a “4080”. Nvidia eventually “unlaunched” the RTX 4080 12 GB, and here we are with the 16 GB variant as the flagship mainstream gaming GPU of the Ada generation.

In Ampere, Nvidia used the same GA102 GPU with varying CUDA core configurations across the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 lineup, including the Ti versions. With the RTX 4080, Nvidia isn't just re-using a cut-down AD102 die, but has actually created the AD103 die de novo.

The AD103 die is quite different from AD102, and this can be seen in the die shot as well as the design and layout of the PCB and configuration of the memory modules.

The RTX 4080 is already priced above US$1,000, which leads one to wonder why Nvidia didn't simply use a nerfed AD102 with a few more CUDA cores. A likely explanation is that Nvidia didn't have plans to make as many AD102 dies in the first place, given that Titan-class cards are still a niche market. 

The AD102 in the RTX 4090 is already 11% deficient in SM count compared to the full AD102 GPU. So, it probably makes better sense to just have a new die made in high volumes targeted at the gaming crowd, instead of just binning down flagship chips.

In this review, we put the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition through its paces and see if the performance uplift on offer really justifies the US$1,200 ask.

A closer look at the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition

At first glance, the RTX 4080 seems to have cut corners when compared to the RTX 3080 Ti's specifications. The Ada mainstream gaming flagship GPU has lower CUDA, Tensor, and RT core counts along with a cut-down memory bus and bandwidth. What Nvidia apparently cuts in numbers makes up in other aspects of the architecture.

For one, the AD103 in the RTX 4080 crams 45.9 billion transistors in a relatively smaller 379 mm2 die area compared to the 28.3 billion in the RTX 3080 Ti's 628 mm2 GA102 die. The fourth gen Tensor cores are now capable of outputting 780 TFLOPs with Sparsity, compared to the 273 TFLOPs with Sparsity of the RTX 3080 Ti. RT TFLOPs have also gone up to 113 in the RTX 4080 compared to 66.6 in the RTX 3080 Ti. 

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition is pretty much identical to the RTX 4090 Founders Edition in terms of dimensions and build quality. Therefore, we refer you to our review RTX 4090 FE for more information on the design and connectivity options.

The RTX 4080 requires only three 8-pin power connections from the PSU

The RTX 4080 FE has a boost clock of 2,505 MHz and runs at a 320 W TGP. Unlike the RTX 4090 FE, overclocking potential is limited in this card, with only about 10% additional power target headroom for a maximum TGP of 355 W.

The test bench: RTX 4080 FE gets paired with Intel Raptor Lake flagship

The test system is identical to what we've used for our review of the RTX 4090 FE. This includes the following components:

  • Cooler MasterFrame 700 test bench
  • Intel Core i9-13900K
  • Gigabyte Z790 Aorus Master motherboard
  • Gigabyte Aorus Gen 4 2 TB NVMe SSD for benchmarks and games
  • 2x 16 GB Kingston Fury Renegade DDR5-6400 RAM at DDR5-6000 speeds with timings 32-38-38-80 at 1.35 V
  • Gigabyte M28U 4K 144 Hz monitor
  • Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360L V2 ARGB AIO cooler
  • Cooler Master MVE Gold 1250 V2 fully modular PSU

A fresh installation of Windows 11 22H2 with the latest patches was used together with Game Ready driver version 526.72.

We would like to thank Cooler Master for supplying the test bench, AIO, and PSU, Gigabyte for the Core i9-13900K, Z790 motherboard, M28U monitor, and NVMe SSD, and Kingston for the memory. Due to some reasons, we had to change to a new DDR5-6400 memory kit. We used a DDR5-6000 XMP profile to match our previous RTX 4090 FE test system as much as possible.

Synthetic benchmarks: Significant leads over the RTX 3090 Ti and RX 6950 XT

The RTX 4080 offers a fairly significant 23% cumulative performance uplift over the RTX 3090 Ti in synthetic benchmarks, whilst putting up a similar show against the RX 6950 XT. This delta increases to 58% when compared with the RTX 3080 average. 3DMark Fire Strike Graphics is the only test where we see the RX 6950 XT to have a slight edge over the RTX 4080.

Unigine benchmarks see Nvidia GPUs leading handsomely throughout. The RTX 4080 FE is able to outperform the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT by more than 60% in most Unigine tests.

When compared to the RX 6900 XT, the RTX 4080 shows a very impressive 76% uplift in the Heaven 4.0 OpenGL and greater than 50% gains in Unigine Superposition.

Compute benchmarks: Substantial gains over Ampere and RDNA 2

The RTX 4080 features 40% less CUDA cores compared to the RTX 4090, but the performance deficit generally lies in the 20% mark in most cases. V-Ray 5 CUDA and RTX tests see the RTX 4080 trailing behind the RTX 4090 by 27% and 29%, respectively. Nevertheless, we still see greater than 40% benefits when compared to the RTX 3090 Ti, which is impressive.

We see 70% leads when compared to the RTX 3080 Ti in V-Ray 4.1 GPU and LuxMark Room GPU tests. However, AMD cards dominate as usual in LuxMark Sala.

We notice that Blender 3.3 CUDA scores are way off the mark, similar to what we had observed previously with the RTX 4090, which doesn't make sense. This could be a driver optimization issue, so we have asked Nvidia for a clarification and will keep you posted once we hear from them.

Professional applications: Decent for a gaming-focused card

The RTX 4080 is squarely aimed at gamers — there's no option to enable ECC memory — but performance in pro apps is not entirely abysmal. The AD102-based RTX 4090 leads by 17% in SPECviewperf 12 and 13 and by 27% in SPECviewperf 2020 v1, which is on expected lines given the AD103 GPU's architectural constraints.

Unsurprisingly, the RTX A6000 gets a huge 148% lead thanks to driver optimizations. Even the laptop versions of the Quadro RTX 5000 and RTX A5000 show significant gains in SPECviewperf tests overall.

For those who aren't looking at a Titan-class card like the RTX 4090, the RTX 4080 is still amenable for workflows such as 3Ds Max.

Gaming benchmarks: Native 4K Ultra 100 fps in most titles

Gaming performance is what counts the most with mainstream cards like the RTX 4080 and below. Overall, we see that the RTX 4080 FE is about 14% deficient in gaming when compared to the RTX 4090 FE.

On the other hand, the RTX 4080 FE sees 20%, 37%, 41%, and 57% gains compared to the RTX 3090 Ti, RX 6950 XT, RTX 3080 Ti average, and RX 6900 XT, respectively in the tested titles.

Gaming at 4K Ultra in modern titles is a cinch with this card, without any need for upscaling. A vast majority of titles are playable at 100+ fps at 4K Ultra, with the more demanding ones requiring some slight tuning if required.

Another way to achieve even higher fps at 4K Ultra settings is to make use of Nvidia DLSS or equivalent, including the fancy new DLSS 3 frame generation tech in supported games.

The benefits in upgrading to an RTX 4080 are best seen at 4K. The RTX 40 series cards seem to have a penchant for getting bottlenecked easily, even with the latest flagship gaming CPUs from AMD and Intel. Therefore, this card is probably overkill if you primarily game at FHD or QHD resolutions.
