Looks like the RTX 3080 has quite some fire-power:

OTOY OctaneBench 2020 - Overall Score

Blender 2.90 - Classroom CUDA and OptiX Render Time (Cycles, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080)



What do you think?

Absolutely! Also interesting to see that there seems to be no difference between running the card on pcie4 vs pcie3. At least in gaming.

I think it's mostly because all the games and the game engines were built around the PCI-E 3.0 bandwidth limit. As the console titles start to roll out and the platform matures, I think we'll start to see a gap before September next year.

The biggest advantage for render engines would be the ability to run powerful graphics cards on a PCI-E 4.0 x4 slot without giving up performance. Motherboard choices should become easier. Excited to test them out to see whether there's a direct performance difference between 3.0 and 4.0 ;)
