Our Verdict: Upgrading from RTX 3080 to RTX 3080 Ti is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

The RTX 3090 might be the extreme flagship of the latest Ampere set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most high-end PC gamers. On the other hand, the RTX 3080 Ti is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 799. The RTX 3080 Ti is much more cheaper than the RTX 2080 Ti as it costs $ 799. Compare this to the RTX 2080 Ti, which came originally at a price of $ 1299. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 6900 XT which costs $ 999.

The RTX 3080 Ti has 20 GB RAM compared to the RTX 2080 Ti 's 11 GB video memory. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RTX 3080 Ti consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RTX 2080 Ti, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Microsoft Flight Simulator, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey at 70 fps to 135 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 106 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Microsoft Flight Simulator, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Red Dead Redemption 2, Marvel's Avengers, Cyberpunk 2077 at 61 fps to 99 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 89 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Godfall, GreedFall at 62 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080

The RTX 3090 might be the extreme flagship of the latest Ampere set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most high-end PC gamers. On the other hand, the RTX 3080 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 699. The good news is, with the release of the RTX 3080 Ti, the RTX 3080 's price is getting more discount.

Spec for spec, this RTX 3080 leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the RTX 2080, by boasting 2 % more fps. The RTX 3080 has 10 GB RAM compared to the RTX 2080 's 8 GB video memory.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The RTX 3080 consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the RTX 2080, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and it really justifies an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Microsoft Flight Simulator, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey at 67 fps to 130 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 103 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Red Dead Redemption 2, Marvel's Avengers, Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed Odyssey at 89 fps to 97 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 94 fps. For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Assassin's Creed Valhalla, GreedFall, Cyberpunk 2077, Godfall, Metro Exodus at 61 fps to 64 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 63 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti / Core i9-10900K

It is worth noting that the RTX 3080 Ti is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RTX 3080 Ti 's 20480 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like RTX 3080 Ti requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 3080 Ti , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
