NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Super review, is it worth it?

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Super review, is it worth it?

The year 2024 started very strongly for NVIDIA, the well-known brand of graphics cards that during the first stages of the year presented us with the new GeForce RTX 40 Series Super GPUs, an “update” of some of the most popular models of its current generation graphics with the Love Lace architecture that In some cases they came to replace traditional models in stores and in others, like the RTX 4070 Super that we also analyzed at Vandal, to give more options to players who want to enjoy games at 1440p.

On our website we were able to Used the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Super for a few days That in this case, It arrives to replace the traditional RTX 4080 in the marketl with a The price starts at 1,119 euros, 350 less than the original price Provide many technical improvements.

Superior technical specifications of the RTX 4080 card

  • Coda cores: 10,240
  • Clock frequency: 2.55 GHz // 2.29 GHz (accelerated/normal)
  • memory: 16 GB GDDR6X
  • Memory interface display: 256 bits
  • Bandwidth: 736 GB/s
  • Dimensions: 304mm x 137mm x 3 holes
  • Maximum temperature: 90
  • Maximum total power: 320 watts
  • Required system power: 750 watts
  • price: 1119

An update designed for the future

The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Super is NVIDIA's fastest memory graphics cardwith 16GB GDDR6X memory working At 23 Gbps to give us a total bandwidth of 736 Gbps Something for This is now mainly noticeable in flagship 4K games With a performance increase of between 3% and 5%, while gaming at 1440p and 1080p, there is almost no difference with the original model.

he The problem in our case is that the processorDespite being relatively a model (she's only 2 years old). The bottleneck is in the two more “modest” decisions. So the jump in performance compared to the previous version is only slightly noticeable in video games at this resolution If we go to criteria that compress the histogram to the maximum, the difference will be even more noticeableand in the future, As video games become more graphically intensive over the next few years, the faster memory speeds and additional cores that the RTX 4080 Super has will become more apparent. Regarding the original model.

Speaking of video games specifically, as you can imagine we made HUsual standards Using the NVIDIA graph, you have the results below which should take into account the bottleneck in our processor:

NB: Testing conducted using a PC with an Intel Core i9-11900K processor, NZXT Z590 White motherboard, 64GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro White 3200MHz (PC4-25600), CL16 RAM, NVMe SSD, and Windows 11 updated to the latest version . Issuance.

As always… efficient consumption and low temperatures

Ada Lovelace A The generation that turned out very well for NVIDIA If we talk about Consumption and temperaturesThis is something that is clearly repeated in the GeForce RTX 4080 Super card, which was in times of stress Average consumption is about 270 watts Maximum 320W supported by GPU.

If we talk about temperatures more of the same, Good results around 60 In tests, considering that it can withstand up to 90, this is a wide margin that also does not have a very high cost in noise, something that should be highlighted, at least for us.

Reflex, DLSS 3, AV1, GeForce Experience…

In addition to the “brute force” of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4080 Super, we also want to review other interesting sections of graphics, starting with DLSS image rescaling and smoothing technology, and specifically, DLSS 3 is exclusive to the 40 Series which has AI frame generation which is “black magic” With compatible games, resulting in significantly increased performance. In titles that support it, you have already seen how the GPU behaves with DLSS 3, but to give you a clearer idea, in the 3DMark DLSS test the result without using this technology is 83 frames per second while using it up to… 233 images per second.

On the other hand we also have Reaction system to reduce latency Whether in the use of rescaling or in competitive games e.g Counter Strike 2 also bravepart of the Support AV1 codec More efficient than the usual H265 (something content creators will appreciate) and all Benefits of GeForce Experience Which allows us to record gameplay without affecting gaming performance, optimize it with one-click and other functions.


the The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Super is a good upgrade or graphics replacement to replace the traditional 4080. It is faster and has more cores and It is launched at a cheaper price than the previous modelavailable for 1119 (original 4080 released for 1469).

With this in mind, it is Good update at a good pricebeing A recommended graphic for the present and, above all, for the future if we take into account the additional CUDA cores that it has and that it carries the fastest NVIDIA memory So far, although this does not currently translate into a significant jump in gaming performance, it could be seen in the future.

*We conducted this analysis using the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition temporarily provided by NVIDIA.
