In spetember 1st nvidia annoucned the release of new RTX3000; the series based on Ampere manfauctred by samsung,the cards announced by Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang on speicial live stream.
The RTX3000 Series cards feature 2nd Gen Ray Tracing cores and 3rd Generation Tensor Cores and PCIe 4.0 interface.
a lot of people are still excited to see the rtx 3080 specification and performance when it releases.
RTX 3090, 3080 and RTX 3070 specs
the Ampere Gpu And the 2nd generation of RTX,new feautres of RT; Tensor core and streaming multiprocessors, bring a studning visuals, amazing fast freame rate, and AI Acceleration game devleopped By Nvidia.
the RTX3080 is one of the 3 Gpu emerged on nvidia main event, including RTX 3090 and RTX 3070.
there almost 8704 core from Cuda Cores, RT & Tensor cores as well which is responsible for the Ray tracing on this card.
RTX 3080 series will sport GA102-200 GPu with 8704 cuda cores enabled, this card will rely on 10GB GDDR6X memory across a 320-bit bus, this will give a maximum bandwidth of 760 gb/s
Nvidia confirmed that the card features 1.71GHZ Boost clock, that will give a maximum FP32 perfomrance of 29.7 TFLOPs.
The ampere card came to continuing the run of Turing generation that gave the Ray tracing and artificial intelligence in gaming world.
also the Rtx 3080 serie comes with both tensor and RT cores individually without needing the Cuda cores of the card.
in addition to all that, Nvidia described that the Evolution of their cards is off-limits, and this time RTX 3080 series came with 3 processor to be compatible with the DLSS2.0, it is trained on extremely Quality of 8K offline render offline images of many kinds of content, the DLSS2.0 will let the gamer enjoy High resolution with high frame rate and ray tracing at the same time.
RTX 3080 vs RTX 2080 TI
RTX 3080 will get approximatively up to 30 teraflops in the shadowing to get 270 % performance comparing to last generations of Rtx-20, and it gives 58 teraflops in light tracing to give 170 % better than RTX 2080.
moreover 283 teraflops with tensor cores.
leaked Benchmark of RTX 3080
In the Banchmark bellow,RTX 3080 was paired with I9 10900 k using the DX12 api, and microsoft Windows 10
and it shown the reults below
- 3DMark Fire Strike Performance: 31919 (+25% 2080Ti, +43% 2080S )
- 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme: 20101 (+24% 2080Ti, +45% 2080S )
- Fire Strike Time Spy: 17428 (+28% 2080Ti, +49% 2080S )
- Fire Strike Port Royal: 11455 (+45% 2080Ti, +64% 2080S )
- 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra: 11049 (+36% 2080Ti, +64% 2080S )
After testing both RTX 3080 with both RTX 2080Ti and RTX 2080 super in 4k displays, we have seen that the RTX 3080 performed 68% better than 2080 super and 38% from RTX 2080 Ti for the Cuda test.
and for OPEN CL RTX 3080 is equally better than 2080 ti and 2080 super by 41 % performance.
But, we assume that the RTX 3080 is faster approximatvely 30% faster than 2080 ti; meanwhile it uses 30% power than the RTX 2080ti.
Another leaks has been showing on a video of synthetic and gaming perfromance for RTX3080 by reviewer; but this time is not detailed. and we still we don’t know if it was overclocked or not.
RTx 3080 price and release date
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 – 699 USD,Rtx 3080 is supposed will get released as founder edition start from September 17th.
Do you need to upgrade to PCIE 4.0 for the New RTX 3000?
Actually, the basic answer is no, as long as you are using PCIE3.0; GA102 GPUs will work fine on the current motherboards.
But if you do get PCiE4.0 will notice some changes in the future games; with SSD NVme drivers taking advantage, you will want to upgrade to the PCIe 4.0.
where can you get it PCIe 4.0?
If you are an AMD fan you will have to get the X570 or B550 Motherboards; however if you are using one of the intel’s CPUs, unfortunately, it won’t support these features.
Why do you need to use PCiE4.0?
the PCIE4.0 will let the transactor between the data to the RTX3000series memory faster; most importnaly with RTX and Dlss options are enabled.
as we mentioned above the RTX 3080 will support PCIe 3.0 as well; Nvidia said it won’t be a noticeable difference between these two slots.
CPU recommened to be with the RTX3000 series
if you are still using I5 7th generation or older; you have to upgrade to at least I7 9th generation, if we are speaking of bringing RTX 3080 to your setup.
if you would ask me between rayzen 5 and i5 with display 1440p; we recommend rayzen 7 to avoid bottelneck, we would recommend Amd rayzen 7 3700x to rtx 3080, and it comes with this specs:
- 8 cores and 16 threads
- Base Clock3.6GHz
- Max Boost Clock Up to 4.4GHz
- cache memory 32MB
During the Event, Nvidia showed that RTX 3000, will come 12pins connector, and the good news is: You aren’t going to have to rush out and buy new connectors. According to Nvidia, the 12-pin will be compatible with 8-pin connectors. This is pretty common. Two Molex connectors could be connected to create a single 6-pin PCIe back in the day, and two 6-pin cables can be combined in a converter to create a single 8-pin. We’ll probably see something similar here.
and on this picure , nvidia present that the Ampere GPu will need at least 750W
Do i need to change the computer’s Case ?
In conclusion before you buy one of the RTX 3000, first you need to see if it is a founder’s edition; or 3 party edition such as MSI, Asus and aorus, and see its size and dimension, and compare it into your case’s size , don’t try to let your case open, it will be a house of sand and it might affect your setup’s component.
What you need to buy ?
therfore the RTX 2000 series are still avaible on the stores, however if you still thinking to buy one; you must get the one of 3080 specfication is much better and with a slight difference of money.
