The OC is always presented in the review so that's moot. It's up to the reviewer to expound on it. And, the results as a whole have always omitted their best OC'd card from the previous gen. Not just the OEM card. Thus making the percentage much larger then it really is.
Would you expect everyone with a 2080ti to have just a OEM? Of course not. So those cards, even if WC, should be factored in. If you really want to know if a 3080 is better then a 2080ti one would want to know what the percentage is based on more then just the OEM cards out there. It's a valid argument.
Now if you read the link in the OP it mirrors what I'm saying. In part it says...
When compared to the Turing cards, the GeForce RTX 3080 looks to be around 35% faster than a stock GeForce RTX 2080 Ti which would make it the biggest performance jump over the previous generation Ti offering. We also compared the score to my heavily overclocked RTX 2080 Ti graphics card (Lightning Z) and found the difference to end up around 12%.
Were I stated in an earlier post a difference between 20%-0%. Which I stand by (depending on OC card used).
Wouldn't you say that's impressive that even a heavily overclocked RTX 2080 Ti can't beat it?
I know when the Radeon VII and RX 5700 XT were released my heavily overclocked RX Vega 64 beat them in Firestrike
Looks like someone is ****ty all over these threads again!
On a different note, are we still waiting for a September launch. I really want to buy the 3090 and move to a ZEN based machine when those two come out, but I'm not sure if i can find the right monitor make use of those specs. Any suggestions?
2080TIs in the 2150 MHz range are already knocking on the door of a 3080, while the 3080TI is rumored to be 30+% faster. No surprises here, it's the same product segmentation we got with Turing all over again.
