How well can the GeForce RTX 3080 run games
14 Jun 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3080 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 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. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 999 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 3080 performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Dying Light 2 and predict it will deliver good frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 206 FPS, Medium: 162 FPS, High: 109 FPS and Ultra: 78 FPS. We proceeded to look at Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 641 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce RTX 3080 at 1440p and researched how Dying Light 2 might perform on it leading us to predict a reasonable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 157 FPS, Medium: 124 FPS, High: 83 FPS and Ultra: 59 FPS. We then checked out Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 1291FPS, M: 1017FPS, H: 684FPS, U: 489FPS. And another popular game was GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE- that returned L: 512FPS, M: 404FPS, H: 272FPS, U: 194FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 3080 running at 1440p 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 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3080 in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

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