Nvidia RTX 3080 performance shown via leaked benchmark tests

A video posted on the Bilibili TecLab channel shows an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 going through multiple performance tests. The leakers behind the video stated that they own an RTX 3080 and the respective driver (456.16) that has been given to press members for review purposes. 

The video was taken offline on Bilibili, but it was later uploaded to YouTube. Given that we don't actually see the product being tested, it's hard to confirm that this is indeed an RTX 3080. However, the performance improvement is somewhat similar to what we came to expect from the upcoming graphics card. As per Teclab, the RTX 3080 offers 30% more performance than the RTX 2080Ti and 50% more than the RTX 2080 Super. Additionally, the total power consumption of the system was about 500W.

As seen in the video above, the RTX 3080 seems really promising. The 3DMark and game scores compiled by u/Nestledrink shows that the previous generation RTX 20 series cards are quite behind the capabilities of the RTX 3080, as seen in the following table.

Firestrike 11049 +25% +43%
Firestrike Extreme 20101 +24% +45%
Firestrike Ultra 31919 +36% +64%
Timespy 8548 +28% +49%
Timespy Extreme 17428 +38% +59%
Port Royal 11455 +45% +64%

Game results follow a similar pattern to what the synthetic benchmark scores have shown (only vs 2080 Super).

Far Cry 5 4K Ultra 99 FPS +62%
Borderlands 3 4K Crazy 61.05 FPS +56%
Horizon Zero Dawn 4K Ultra 76 FPS N/A
Assassin's Creed Odyssey 4K 67 FPS +48%
 Forza Horizon 4K 147FPS +48%

The gains from using DLSS on the RTX 3080 also seem pretty good, with games like Control increasing its FPS by 80%.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider 101 FPS 83 FPS
Control 90 FPS 50 FPS
Death Stranding 160-170 FPS 100-110 FPS

During the Nvidia RTX 30 series announcement, Jensen Huang showed a graph that claimed the RTX 3080 would offer up to double the performance of the RTX 2080. Based on these results, that claim appears to be well within reach, particularly for DLSS supported games.

KitGuru says: Were you expecting this performance difference between the RTX 3080 and the RTX 20 series graphics cards? Are you hoping to get an RTX 3080 on launch day?
