The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 has been officially announced as team green’s new flagship gaming graphics card, and while it promises big things when it comes to powering the best PC games, just how does it compare to its predecessor, the RTX 2080 Super?

That’s a question that we’re going to answer here, by pitting the Nvidia RTX 3080 vs RTX 2080 Super. We’ll look at if the RTX 3080 is a worthwhile upgrade for RTX 2080 Super owners, as well as looking at if the older card is a better buy for gamers on a budget.

Because, even though the RTX 3080 (along with its siblings, the RTX 3070 and RTX 3090) is the new hotness, the RTX 2080 Super is still an excellent card in its own right. For people looking to upgrade their gaming PCs, then, this offers up a dilemma: the Nvidia RTX 3080 or the RTX 2080 Super – which GPU is the best for you?
