Nvidia’s RTX 3080 is easily beating the 2080 Ti in Doom Eternal.
Hot on the heels of the RTX 3000 series reveal, Nvidia has released a five-minute gameplay demo of Doom Eternal running on a single RTX 3080.
All graphics settings have been maxed out, and the game is rendering at a native 4K resolution. The video makes it a point to compare the FPS readings of the 3080 with those produced by the RTX 2080 Ti – the current king of GPU performance. The 3080 is almost always 50% faster, allowing Doom Eternal to run at over 100 fps consistently, often north of 120fps, in fact.
This isn’t some flythrough footage either, this is a full-on gameplay demo with all the carnage of a typical Doom Eternal level. It’s worth emphasising that the RTX 3080, a $700 GPU, is beating the $1,200 RTX 2080 Ti.
Of the three GPUs announced this week, the RTX 3080 launches first, on September 17, followed by the 3090 ($1,500) on September 24, and the 3070 ($500) in October.
