Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition Review: A Huge Generational Leap in Performance

GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition: Hail to the King! 

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition is here, claiming the top spot on our GPU benchmarks hierarchy, and ranking as the best graphics card currently available — provided you’re after performance first, with price and power being lesser concerns. After months of waiting, we finally have independent benchmarks and testing data. Nvidia has thrown down the gauntlet, clearly challenging AMD’s Big Navi to try and match or beat what the Ampere architecture brings to the table.

We’re going to hold off on a final verdict for now, as we have other third-party RTX 3080 cards to review, which will begin as soon as tomorrow. That’s good news, as it means customers won’t be limited to Nvidia’s Founders Edition for the first month or so like we were with the RTX 20-series launch. Another piece of good news is that there’s no Founders Edition ‘tax’ this time: The RTX 3080 FE costs $699, direct from Nvidia, and that’s the base price of RTX 3080 cards for the time being. The bad news is that we fully expect supply to be insufficient to keep up with what we expect to be exceptionally high demand.
