14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3080 Gainward Glare 10GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce RTX 3080 Gainward Glare 10GB graphics card, when running 2020 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 999 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce RTX 3080 Gainward Glare 10GB can run Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at 1080p and predict it will return strong frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 273 FPS, Medium: 215 FPS, High: 145 FPS and Ultra: 104 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to return a strong 111 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on the GeForce RTX 3080 Gainward Glare 10GB and predict it will get a good set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 208FPS, M: 164FPS, H: 111FPS, U: 79FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Cyberpunk 2077 which we predicted will be strong in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 84 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Watch Dogs Legion where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were strong at 84 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce RTX 3080 Gainward Glare 10GB is a very strong choice of graphics cards at higher resolution gaming. 4K gaming with this graphics card is certainly something that can be achieved across a number of the latest games and still achieve good graphics settings at those resolutions.
