When NVIDIA launched its RTX 40 graphics card, the thing that caught our attention the most and also disappointed us was its high price. Virtually all GPUs of that generation are more expensive than previous ones, and in the case of the RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti, they hardly offered any performance difference. This power/price ratio allowed AMD to attract the attention of users and thus increase sales of some of its models. To address this, NVIDIA launched its RTX 40 SUPER. Now we see that out of all these, rtx 4080 super This is quite disappointing in terms of performance, as it only managed to Slightly faster than the original in 3DMark and games,
When NVIDIA announced its RTX 40 SUPER we got three models that will replace the existing models: the RTX 4070 SUPER, the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER and the RTX 4080 SUPER. of all these rtx 4070 super This was the first one we saw and in terms of performance, it was quite an interesting improvement over the original. we are talking about a 15% more FPS In-game at both Full HD resolution and High resolution. Here we kept pretty much the same price, so this GPU was worth it.
RTX 4080 SUPER offers hardly any performance gains in 3DMark
with rtx 4070 super We are left with almost a small improvement 10% on 4K Games, In return we got a graphics card that was offered 16 GB memory And in terms of performance it was between the RTX 4070 Ti and the RTX 4080. Again, we did see a slightly higher price increase on this new model, but performance wise it was a better value than the original. Now let’s move on to what will be the least impactful in terms of changes. This is the RTX 4080 Super and unlike the others, it does not give us any improvement in performance, at least not one that is noticeable.
And the fact is that, in the tests that have been done, a AX Gaming RTX 4080 Super X3W, a custom model sold in China, we see that in 3DMark they are almost identical. As we can see, the RTX 4080 SUPER is just a 0.56% faster in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme and a 0,85% fast inside fire strike ultra, We see that in Time Spy it also loses some performance compared to the original Time Spy Extreme just win one 1.33% More points. In Port Royal we see another small difference of 1.09% and finally, in speed way achieved its record of profit taking in 2.4%,
In games it performs on par or even below the original RTX 4080
It’s clear that the RTX 4080 SUPER’s results in 3DMark are disappointing and we’ll continue to see the same in games. Starting with gaming at 2K resolution, we see that in games it does not perform even at the level of native graphics. In cyberpunk 2077 We found that the RTX 4080 SUPER achieves 1 fps less Compared to the non-Super version. Except for one game in which he manages to pass 395 and 398 fps At 2K resolution we can’t say that the RTX 4080 SUPER is better.
By moving to 4K, we might think things would be better in its favor, but we are in the same situation. Here we see how the RTX 4080 SUPER performs the same, slightly less, or slightly better in the same games compared to the RTX 4080. The only notable improvement is 202 and 207 fps, but it is still less than 5% difference. Meanwhile, in the same game, rtx 4090 reaches 264 fps, 30% more. Let’s remember that in Europe, the RTX 4080 SUPER starts with a Price of 1,109 euros And there are models that are worth it 1.379 euro So it’s up to you whether it’s worth it or not.
