After the release of GeForce RTX 3080, Nvidia has promised that new videocard is twice as powerful as the RTX 2080. The first tests showed that this is more like a maximum growth rate, but on average will still be lower – 70-85%.
Now the tests of RTX 3080 are not in games, but in CUDA and OpenCL tests, and here, as it turned out, the growth is even lower.
On average, RTX 3080 bypasses its predecessor by 68%, and RTX 2080 Ti – by 40%. This is still very impressive, as for the price of $700, but still below the announced Nvidia.
However, for most customers, the RTX 3080 will be more important for gaming performance, and there the increase is much closer to double. The new graphics cards will be in the hands of the first customers in few weeks, so we will soon find out how good they really are.
