How well can the GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile run games
12 Jul 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile is at running the more popular games of 2021. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 998 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile can run Star Citizen at 1080p and predict it will return strong frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 268 FPS, Medium: 211 FPS, High: 142 FPS and Ultra: 102 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Battlefield 2042 is predicted to return a strong 88 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Citizen will deliver good FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 204 FPS, Medium: 161 FPS, High: 108 FPS and Ultra: 77 FPS. Next we have Battlefield 2042 running on GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile which is predicted to get L: 123FPS, M: 95FPS, H: 84FPS, U: 67FPS. And for performance contrast the popular F1 2021 gets L: 151FPS, M: 119FPS, H: 80FPS, U: 57FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile 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 16GB Mobile graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3080 16GB 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 16GB 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 16GB Mobile.

GeForce RTX 3080 16GB 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 16GB 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 16GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6X through a 320-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.


Performance


Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3080 16GB 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 16GB 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.
