[Comparison] NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) vs RTX 2080 SUPER (150W) – The RTX 3080 is 20% faster

Gaming is one of the experiences that has kept us sane in these times and the graphics card is the most vital part of gaming, so having a good one is pretty important, in order to ensure that you can have a great time.

Our GPU comparisons have helped people choose the GPU that best fits their needs and budget so that they can be happy and know that they have made the most optimal decision.

With the recent release of the new RTX 3000-series GPUs, we have to reassess our Top Laptop Graphics Ranking and provide new comparisons, so you can make the best decision for yourself.

For today we have the new RTX 3080 (Laptop, 130W) going up against the RTX 2080 SUPER (Laptop, 150W).

GPU benchmarks

In 3DMark Fire Strike, the RTX 3080 performed better, and with a difference that was bigger than we expected. The new GPU had an 18% higher score than the RTX 2080 SUPER. In our second benchmark, Unigine Superposition, the RTX 3080 once again was faster and had a higher score, this time the difference being 22% for the RTX 3080.


We have to agree that the RTX 3000-series are pretty powerful graphics cards and today’s comparison proved that. The RTX 3080 was 18% faster in 3DMark Fire Strike and 22% faster in Unigine Superposition. If these are the scores for the normal 3080, we have to wonder how much more powerful will the 3080 SUPER be, if there ever will be one.
