Bethesda and NVIDIA have decided to showcase the benefits of the upcoming RTX 3080 in terms of framerate compared to the RTX 2080 Ti, the GPU we currently own. In a game like DOOM Eternal, needless to say it could make the experience even more satisfying in 4K. The images per second speak for themselves.

I love when marketing new products shit all over old ones, as if the old products were shit. Having said that, RTX 3080 looks lika an insane cost x benefit proposition.

I'm now waiting for AMD to show what they have going for them. If what they show is on par or very close to RTX 3080, but around 25% cheaper, this might be the first time I choose a AMD card instead of Nvidia.

Nvidia's GPUs' prices are out of control, here a RTX 2080 Ti is from 11.000 to 17.000 bucks!!!!! I'm not kidding, I wish I was, I really do... but reality is shit. And those prices are from a store who sells the cheapest PC tech in my country, I have bought hundreds of stuff from them for over a decade.

So I'm hoping AMD offers great products to hopefully bring prices down or at least be the better cost x benefit option. Aside that, I'm seriously thinking of buying a PlayStation 5 at launch, but depends on the price. If PS5 is U$ 600, it will most likely be around 6.000-7.000 bucks here, so building a whole new PC would be far better.

If it's U$ 500 - very unlikely, then it will be around 5.000 bucks, which could make PS5 the better cost x benefit option. Still, prices for everything are absurdly crazy high.

Older drivers with older Vulkan drivers too for the 2080Ti - like to like comparison :D

Actually, if you watch Digital Foundry's semi-review (link below), it shows that when it gets to the open world part in Doom Eternal, RTX 3080 even increases the framerate gap against RTX 2080 Ti.

Besides showing real scenario gameplay, Rich Leadbetter even shows the PC and cables going to his TV with his cellphone so people see there's no shenanigans or conspiracy theories. While Nvidia did specify which games to test, that was it, everything else was decided by Rich himself and the same is true for the people who got the RTX 3080 early to review it.

The performance gap is around 60-90% in most cases, RTX 3080 is just a far better GPU raw power wise. I expect that by the time it launches and specially when the drivers get even more optimized, this gap will only become higher. It's just an insane value proposition. Some people with RTX 2080 Ti will be pissed, but that's what happens in the PC space, something much better eventually comes. Which is why going for the best part is only wise if you have the disposable income and don't care to upgrade every 1-2 years.

Drift, if you ever read this and have the time, I would love to see you guys tackle some games when you get one of the new GPUs. Maybe do a series with a game per day or something. I just don't say to test some games in 8K, because my PC wouldn't be able to run a 8K video with the very high bitrate from Gamersyde.

But it would be interesting checking out some games in 4K@60-120fps. Like Batman: Arkham Knight and seeing if it's possible to run it at a rock solid 4K@60fps. The last video you guys did of it was in 2016 while using a GTX 1080 to brute force its performance. Curious to see if we finally reached the point where that is possible.
