How well can the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB run games
15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB 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 quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 999 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB graphics card is returning a strong performance on Microsoft Flight Simulator at 1080p of 126 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Mafia: Definitive Edition which we predict will get good frame rates of 78 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Cyberpunk 2077, which is predicted to get 86 FPS under tests.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB by playing Microsoft Flight Simulator which yielded a strong performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 254FPS, M: 200FPS, H: 135FPS, U: 96FPS. Another popular game we researched with this card was Mafia: Definitive Edition and that was reasonable. This graphics card is predicted to deliver 59 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to get good results with a 65FPS on Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB we get the impression that it 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 Galax EX Gamer 10GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB? 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 Galax EX Gamer 10GB.
