Design of GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition
Nvidia introducing a new twin chamber type unique design. The top fan works as a traditional type of blower and air is exhausted through the back side of the case, the bottom fan expels warm air by its airflow, then the hot air can be sucked by the radiator or case fan.
If you see closely, you will find before the 2nd fan, the Founders Edition of Geforce RTX 3080’s main circuit board ends, and you can see the opposite side of the enclosure by the fins gap. Nvidia claims, the performance of this graphics card will achieve the target, which is set by nvidia. So the airflow, which is created by the reduced size of the board is very important to keep the graphics card cool.
This graphics card requires a twelve pin connector for power supply. A twelve pin connector is mounted at 90 degree to the circuit board and it is angled to the front side of the board. The company will give you a portable type adapter with the Founders Edition of the Geforce RTX 3080 GPU. We need 2 eight pin connector (PCIe).
But the cable management is not so easy, so the stunning look of this graphics card will be spoiled. But we can the overall design of this graphics card is very impressive. It can deliver a ultimate performance by its new modified unique design.
The rear side of the Geforce RTX 3080 Founders Edition graphics card has a HDMI 2.1 port and three 1.4a connectors type display port. All 3080 GPUs will feature GDDR6X type memory of 10GB. Memory speed is 9500MHz with 320bit of bus. The total memory bandwidth is around 760GBps. It also supports PCIe 4.0. This graphics card has 1440MHz of base clock and 1710MHz of boost clock. This graphics card needs 320W power.
Performance of GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition
Coming to the gameplay and benchmark, we tested this graphics card at 4k settings. So let’s see the results.
Middle Earth: Shadow of War test
This game has a own benchmark tool and it showed the game can run smoothly with the resolution of 4K. The in-game graphics is set to Ultra settings, TAA is enabled. All other option is set to high settings or ultra settings. The game can be played with 86fps on average.
Far Cry 5 test
Smoothly playable with the resolution of 4K. The in-game graphics is set to Ultra settings. Far Cry 5 can be played with 73fps on average. We decrease the resolution to 1440p (2560×1440). After that the Far Cry 5 got 95fps on average. Metro: Last Light Redux got 58.79fps on average with 4K resolution. Game graphics is set to high setting. SSAA is on with 4X AF.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt test
This game can run with consistent 85fps on average with some variance. The resolution is 4K, with in-game graphics at Ultra settings and other options are set at High settings. We also tried zombie shooter World War Z with 4K settings using the Ultra preset settings. The own game benchmark ran with a smooth 110fps.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey test
This is a demanding and recent game. It can run with 47fps on average. The resolution is set to 4K settings. If you decrease the resolution, then it can be run with 60fps on average.
This graphics card is powerful enough to play the recent games with 4K resolution. If you want a 4K gaming card, then you can go with this card.
