|RTX 4080||RX 7900 XTX|
The RTX 4080 is the second most powerful graphics card from NVIDIA. It is based on the new Ada Lovelace architecture and has 16 GB of G6X memory. It can deliver up to 3 times the performance of the previous generation RTX 3080 Ti with ray tracing and DLSS 3.
The RX 7900 XTX is a high-end graphics card from AMD that was released in December 2022. It is based on the RDNA 3 architecture and features 6144 stream processors, 328 tensor cores, 96 ray accelerators, and 24GB of GDDR6 memory. It is designed to deliver next-generation performance, visuals, and efficiency at 4K and beyond.
- It offers a significant performance boost over the previous generation RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti.
- It can handle most games at high settings and resolutions, even with ray tracing enabled.
- It can accelerate creative workflows such as 3D rendering, video editing, and graphic design with NVIDIA Studio.
- It can reduce system latency and improve responsiveness with NVIDIA Reflex.
- It can create additional high-quality frames with DLSS 3, powered by AI.
- It performs better than 75% in fps compared to the RTX 4090 while consuming less power.
- Beastly performance for 4K gaming, especially with ray tracing and FSR enabled
- Supports the new PCI Express 4.0 standard and USB Type-C connector for better bandwidth and compatibility
- Comes with 24GB of GDDR6 memory, which is more than enough for any game or application
- Supports VR gaming and other advanced features of the RDNA 3 architecture, such as AMD Infinity Cache, AMD Link, AMD Noise Suppression, and AMD Encoder
- It is very expensive, starting at $1199 USD and going up to $1899 USD for some models.
- It is very power-hungry, requiring a minimum of 750W PSU and drawing up to 320W on average.
- It is very large and heavy, requiring a spacious case and a sturdy motherboard.
- It is very scarce and hard to find due to high demand and low supply.
- It is too close in price but not in performance to the RTX 4090, making it less appealing for some users.
- Extremely expensive compared to the previous generation RX 6900 XT and the Nvidia Ada Lovelace cards
- Only a slight improvement in ray tracing and AI performance over the RX 6900 XT
- Requires a high-wattage power supply and may generate a lot of heat and noise
- Not widely available due to supply shortages and scalpers
