How well can the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile run games
12 Jul 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 995 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will get 64 FPS with the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile, Star Citizen predicted to get 97 FPS and Dying Light 2 predicted to get 64 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile will run the upcoming game Grand Theft Auto VI to a reasonable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 129 FPS, Medium: 102 FPS, High: 68 FPS and Ultra: 49 FPS. Another game researched was Star Citizen with predictions of L: 195FPS, M: 154FPS, H: 104FPS, U: 74FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Dying Light 2, wih estimates revealing L: 129FPS, M: 102FPS, H: 68FPS, U: 49FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile running at 1440p is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile? 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 8GB Mobile.

GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The following is based on speculative information and will be updated following a comprehensive Nvidia announcement of the 30 Series Mobile graphics solution range. The GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture.


Architecture
It equips an Ampere GPU Codenamed GA102 which is a first gen Ampere GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 6144 Shader Processing Units, 212 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides the world's best consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes.


GPU Name: GA102


GPU
The central unit runs at 1100MHz and goes up to 1700MHz in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6X through a 320-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective.


Performance


Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile suggests it will be around the desktop Geforce RTX 3060 Ti performance, making it a suitable graphics card for some 4K gaming.


System Suggestions
GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end CPU to accompany this mobile graphics solution and certainly 16GB of RAM for best gaming performance.
