The Chinese video unit from the Bilibili platform published a review on the GEFORCE RTX 3080 Ti graphics accelerator and shared its performance in synthetic and game tests, as well as in mining. The author did not show the video card itself, which could cause questions about the truthfulness of published information, but he had previously published reviews on other models of video cards before the designated NVIDIA time, which ultimately turned out to be true.
The review author explained that he bought himself independently, earlier than the start of official sales. He gave 20,000 yuan for her (about $ 3163), which is 2.6 times the greater of its recommended value. Unfortunately, it does not indicate the manufacturer of the graphics accelerator. In addition, he did not use the latest version of the GPU-Z program, which correctly reads information about the GPU from the BIOS video card, so the accurate information about the characteristics of the utility model did not report.
The video card was tested as part of the Ryzen 9 5900x system, MSI B550 Unify motherboard and HyperX DDR4-4000 RAM. For tests, the blogger used the NVIDIA version 466.54 video driver, which is supplied to the press for the review of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti presented today. In addition, the author indicated that the video card was checked in playing mode, that is, its frequencies in most cases were slightly higher than the manufacturer.
As the review showed, after optimizations, the efficiency of GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in the Ethereum mining was 65 MHESH / C when consumed 227 W power. At first glance, such a hatchery may seem very high, but certainly not for the video card for $ 1199, close to the characteristics to GeForce RTX 3090. The latter, by the way, the performance in mining exceeds 120 mxes / s. Yes, and more affordable RTX 3080 provides more than 90 mxeth / s.
This difference is apparently due to the fact that the Maine’s hardware limiter from NVIDIA has been implemented in the novelty. So you can hope that the combination of high prices and not the best hashraite will push miners. At the moment there are no confirmation of the fact that the built-in Hardware Mining Limiter, submitted in the updated AMPERE video card series, including new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 TI models, followed by enthusiasts.
The graphs below presents the overall performance of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in comparison with the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 models with reference (pink) and overclocked (purple) frequencies in the 3DMark synthetic test, as well as in games.
In 3DMark, the difference in performance between the GeForce RTX 3080 TI and GeForce RTX 3090 turned out to be minimal. Under the stock frequencies, it was less than 3%. In turn, the performance between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the usual GeForce RTX 3080, depending on the settings differed by 5-12% in favor of the new card. Frankly, with such a difference, a significant increase in the price of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti model relative to the usual GeForce RTX 3080 is difficult to justify.
Below in galleries are screenshots with the results of synthetic and game tests of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti video card and comparison with other video cards. Tests were conducted at 4K resolution:
GEFORCE RTX 3080 TI video card will go on sale June 3. Full reviews for the novelty will begin to appear tomorrow, including on our website. The official recommended value of the novelty is 116,900 rubles per version in the reference execution of Founders Edition.
