NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080

Released in 2020, the GeForce RTX 3080 is a GPU from NVIDIA. According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is an amazing card for gaming with a score of 109%.

The GeForce RTX 3080 has 10 GiB of GDDR6X memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 742 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 320 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce RTX 3080 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1440 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1710 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce RTX 3080 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.

Power and thermals for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 320 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
