Someone on the ChipHell website forum managed to access a sample graphics card and post “Block Breaking” various screenshots of synthetic benchmarks and scores from games including 3DMark Time Spy, Port Royal as well as Forza Horizon 5, Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, Cyberpunk 2077, Borderlands 3, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
So it appears that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080’s performance falls between the RTX 3090 Ti and the RTX 4090 which in 3DMark Time Spy Extreme (4K) gives 71% of the performance of the RTX 4090 when the performance of the RTX 3090 Ti in the same benchmark is up to 55% of the performance of the RTX 4090. With the graphics card’s “power limit slider” at its maximum, the RTX 4080 reaches 73% of the performance of the RTX 4090, while with slightly overclocked it reaches 77% of the performance of the NVIDIA flagship.
In the most demanding 3DMark Port Royal, the RTX 4080 reaches 69% of the performance of the RTX 4090 when the RTX 3090 Ti can “catch” 58% of the performance.
In games, the picture is different with the GeForce RTX 4080 being much closer to the RTX 4090. In Forza Horizon 5 for example, the GeForce RTX 4090 is only 15.7% faster than the GeForce RTX 4080. It is also only 7.9% faster in Call of Duty Modern Warfare II.
However, in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the RTX 4090 is 39% faster than its younger brother and over 37% faster in Cyberpunk 2077.
Given that the above results are realistic, the new GeForce RTX 4080 will provide much higher performance than the previous generation, more specifically the RTX 3080 (10 GB) that it manufactures. However, we don’t think it will deliver such performance that it will “cannibalize” sales of the GeForce RTX 4090.
