Nvidia Resizable Bar Benchmarked w/ RTX 3080 & RTX 3090

Resizable BAR first hit the mainstream back in November, when AMD released its RX 6000-series to the market. It took Nvidia until February to catch up, with the RTX 3060 supporting Resizable BAR out of the box. At the end of March, Nvidia also released a new driver to support the technology on the rest of its RTX 30-series GPUs. Here, we benchmark the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 to see what Resizable BAR can bring to the table.
