How well can the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax SG 10GB run games
8 Jan 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax SG 10GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 999 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax SG 10GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Assassins Creed: Valhalla and saw it deliver good frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 150 FPS, Medium: 128 FPS, High: 111 FPS and Ultra: 75 FPS. We proceeded to look at FIFA 21 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 308 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Assassins Creed: Valhalla which delivered reasonable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 115 FPS, Medium: 98 FPS, High: 84 FPS and Ultra: 57 FPS. Next we have FIFA 21 running on GeForce RTX 3080 Galax SG 10GB which gets L: 529FPS, M: 440FPS, H: 323FPS, U: 235FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Watch Dogs Legion gets L: 222FPS, M: 175FPS, H: 118FPS, U: 84FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax SG 10GB is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax SG 10GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax SG 10GB in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax SG 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 SG 10GB.
