   thus marketed as 10496 and 8704 CUDA cores
The RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 share the same PCB design, with the exception of NVLink missing and no memory modules on the back of the RTX 3080. The NVIDIA Reference PCB (2x8-pin) has room for 9 power stages on the left and 11 power stages on the right, with 4 of them allocated for memory. This means that the 3080/3090 reference PCB has a maximum of 16 power stages for the GPU. But since the RTX 3080 is a cut down version of the RTX 3090 with lower power demands, there is no need to fill all of the positions with power stages, capacitors, and inductors. Instead, NVIDIA partners decide how many to use on reference PCB-based cards. NVIDIA's Founders Edition card is a custom PCB this time around, with 18 power stages total: 15 for the GPU and 3 for the memory. For comparison, we can see that (so far) no partner card using the NVIDIA Reference PCB (2x8-pin) goes below 13 power stages for the GPU and 3 power stages for the memory. Coincidentally, this is the exact VRM allocation of the 2080 Ti Reference PCB. Some cards, such as the Gigabyte Eagle OC and Palit GamingPro, add one power stage, bringing them to a total of 17. The ASUS 3080 TUF card appears to use a completely custom PCB, but keeps the 16+4 design, occupying all positions even on the RTX 3080 variant.
ASUS
The TUF OC is the best bang-for-the-buck 3080 card to date. The regular model is $699 MSRP, and the OC version is only slightly more. It features a Dual BIOS switch, an extra HDMI 2.1 port, and a maxed out power limit slider of 375W -- the maximum ATX spec allows on 2x8-pin connector cards. Additionally, the TUF features 20 power stages: 16 for the GPU and 4 for memory. The currently unreleased ROG Strix OC model (3x8-pin) will according to ASUS feature a power limit of 400W, and we do not have a clear indication of when cards will ship (no confirmation on power limit or power stages can be made until the card is in reviewers hands).

Ventus OC has the lowest power limit out of all known cards at 320W. The Gaming X Trio (3x8-pin) has a relatively weak VRM (13+3 power stages) and a maximum power limit of 350W. Given the connectors, physical size and price of the card, it should be on par with FTW3 Ultra or Strix OC, but it has poor value in comparison. In contrast, the TUF OC (2x8-pin) run each of the power connectors at the full spec of 150W (100%) per 8-pin cable, whereas the Gaming X Trio runs just 92W (60%). Had it featured the full 20 power stages allowed by the PCB, rather than the more limited 16-stage VRM, it could have safely offered a power limit of up to 420W like the FTW3 Ultra, which uses 77% of the allowed power per cable. Although the power limit on the FTW3 isn't great either, it's definitely better (20% higher power limit, greatly increases overclocking headroom).

QUESTIONS | FAQ


Last Updated: September 1, 2020

Question: How much faster is the RTX 3090 than the RTX 3080?
Answer: We don't yet for sure, but everything points to the 3090 being around 20% faster overall. Both the 3080 and 3090 are based on the GA102 ("8N" custom Samsung process, 627mm² die size). The RTX 3090 features a full fat die with 20.6% more CUDA cores, SMs, TMUs, tensor cores, and RT cores. It also offers 23.2% higher memory bandwidth thanks to its 384-bit memory bus. Target boost clocks are close, but with a slight edge to the 3080. All this amounts to the 90 card being around 20% faster under ideal conditions, but at a 114% higher cost.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Early Look: Ampere Architecture Performance - Hands-On!


2080 Ti here, this is enticing but there's a huge price gap between the 3080 and 3090 and NV essentially confirmed my suspicion that the 3090 is basically a renamed Titan, meaning, a 3080 Ti or 3080 S with 20GB of VRAM being dropped in response to Big Navi is very likely. Seeing as how I was late to upgrade from 1080 Ti to 2080 Ti (6 months ago, used, $900) I am probably going to wait for 3080 Ti / 3080 S.

i would preorder the 3080 FE right now if i could. very annoyed nvidia is not taking preorders -_-.

though, i hate to ask this, but do you think a 3600x will bottleneck the 3080? nvidia is touting these cards as pci-express 4, but all their testing was on a intel 10900k which only uses pci-express 3. makes me feel like pci-express 4 is not needed, or at least, didn't help ryzen come out on top to be used over intel for their testing.

i feel like i should sell off my 3600x for a 10600k or something.

I wouldn't until we see what kind of affect pcie 3.0/4.0 has.

I was hesitant to get a 3080 since it only has 10GB of VRAM, but I used my time machine to preorder one just in case (it sold out in 2 minutes!).

The size, price, and probably performance, are all better for 3080 than people expected I think, whereas the price of the 3090 is now outside most people's reach.

So until there is a 3080/20 on the market - and that might not be until GDDR6x prices come down - it comes down to whether 10GB is enough - esp.if youre on a 11GB 1080ti looking to upgrade.

Although adding more cores increases performance in any game, just adding more VRAM doesnt and few games allocate up to available size. Only a small %ge of people have 11 or more GB of VRAM and game developers know this - and this isnt going to change now Nvidia are sticking with 10GB - so I think 10GB is still a safe option going forward.

isn't 10GB too few for a new cards considering that 1080Ti had 11GB and 2080Ti 11GB?

I'm rather curious if the 320-bit SKU was a die harvest issue, or were they choosing to limit VRAM to cut expensive G6X costs. Imagine buying 2x1GB Micron G6X chips yourself, soldering them on, and either getting a working 352-bit or full 384-bit card. Self-made 3085/3080 TI. Hopes aside, still a curious question.

Jensen says that 3080 is the flagship, a flagship that have less ram than a 1080Ti?
Ok I like the price but there is a gap between 3080 and 3090 that will be fitted soon.

Imho we will see a 3080Ti soon after Christmas

Guess I'll be looking at the EVGA 3080 XC3 Ultra. That should be the reference PCB design based on previously released cards, and easiest to get waterblocks for, such as Heatkiller. EVGA just confirmed that Hydro Copper will come later, no ETA. So I'm going with third party waterblock.

I'm leaning towards the FE card since I've never owned a reference card. How's people experience with them? This new design seems extremely interesting.

As far as the 3080 and vram goes, I've tested various games I play over the last few days and the most vram I've seen used was 6gb at 3440x1440. Feel like newer games might start flirting with 8gb+ though 10gb should last until the 40xx come out. Regardless, I plan on keeping my 1080 ti as a back up. I'll pull the 3080 about a month out from the 40xx release and flip it. Point being, I don't see the 3080 as being a longer term option for me and feel like it's more of a stopgap until next gen. I'm hoping by then AMD has shown its cards and hopefully brought competition back to the higher end.

Time machine?
Just making a pun at the fact that there is an owners club before the card is even available for preorder!

Although to be fair I will be 3080 owner soon. I'm upgrading from a 2070 super which is only getting me 20-30 fps in MSFS. One thing that bugs me though is that NVIDIA says the 3080 is twice as fast as the 2080, but they only added 2GB more VRAM. If it's twice as fast shouldn't it have 16GB of VRAM? Although I'm not gaming in 8k or even 4k, just a measly 3440X1440 so I'll probably be ok... I hope.

Was able to push that New World game over 10gb vram. Maxed out over 10gb vram and over 16gb system ram usage but didn't screenshot it. Think there's some kind of memory leak. Though I went afk and when I came back it had cut down to 9.5gb vram and 12.5gb system ram usage.
