First gaming benchmarks leaked for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB

It appears that the first gaming benchmarks for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB have been leaked online. Chiphell’s member ‘panzerlied’ has shared the following benchmarks which give us an idea of how this upcoming GPU performs.

Going into more details, panzerlied shared benchmarks for 3DMark, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Red Dead Redemption 2. The first results are in native resolution and the second is with DLSS. As for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, its benchmarks are with DLSS Quality Mode.

Since I’ve recently benchmarked Red Dead Redemption 2, we can get an idea of the performance uplift that the RTX 4080 16GB offers. So, in native 4K, I was getting an average of 61fps on the RTX 3080. Without DLSS, the RTX 4080 16GB offers an average of 87fps. So basically, we’re looking at a 42% performance boost.

Here are also the 3DMark benchmarks that the user has shared.

In Overwatch 2, which is a GPU-bound game, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB is around 48% faster than the RTX 3080. This falls in line with the 42% increase we saw in Red Dead Redemption 2. And, from the looks of it, that’s the performance increase we can expect from this new GPU.
