10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce RTX 3080 will blast beyond the majority of games requirements at 1080p, so crank up your screen resolution to 1440p or 4K and let the beautiful AAA game visuals wash over you. This is how gaming is meant to be played but you are likely to have to pay top dollar for the GeForce RTX 3080 privilege. But if you can get this graphics solution, then its happy gaming.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, when running 2021 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. 1000 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

A GeForce RTX 3080 card at 1080p is predicted to see a strong frame rate when running Forza Horizon 5 on Ultra - 122 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Star Citizen which is 118 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Days Gone performs on this hardware, which gets a strong 111 FPS.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce RTX 3080 by researching Forza Horizon 5 leading us to predict a strong performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 245FPS, M: 193FPS, H: 130FPS, U: 93FPS. Another popular game we researched with this card was Star Citizen and that was strong. This graphics card is predicted to deliver 90 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Days Gone which gets strong results with a 84FPS on Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 3080 is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3080 in your PC? This gaming graphics card is not going to need to be replaced for at least 3+ years in any modern gamers PC. Making the GeForce RTX 3080 one of the top choices for gaming PC graphics cards.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3080? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 3080.
