The gaming industry in Pakistan is gradually increasing and it is facing rapid economic growth. Slowly but surely, new products and partners are coming to Pakistan. This is great news for all gamers, as it gives you more options to play with. However, the enthusiast crowd always feels a bit left out. Higher-end components always take a while to reach us.
Well, not this time. Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series lineup created a lot of buzz in the gaming industry globally. So much so that they quickly became one of the most hyped-up GPUs we’ve seen in a while. Fortunately, these cards are starting to appear in the Pakistani markets.
As of right now, Nvidia is shipping some of the fastest graphics cards on the market. The RTX 3080 is one of those cards. It uses the brand new 8nm Ampere architecture, which is brought by the courtesy of Samsung. A new PCIe 4.0 Bus Interface is also present, which promises higher bandwidth. It has fast 10 gigabytes of GDDR6X memory. Rest assured, this thing is a beast.
Chances are if you want to buy this GPU, you love it when a rig crushes benchmarks and gets those incredible scores. Well, for the number-crunching lovers like you, the RTX 3080 definitely dominates. The RTX 3080 can handle anything you throw at it, and then some. It does shy away from 8K, we doubt a lot of consumers need that type of performance. If you do, the bigger brother RTX 3090 exists for that reason alone.
Real-time ray tracing and DLSS are both Nvidia’s game-changing technologies for next-gen games. Ray tracing traces the path of light as it collides with objects in the environment. This makes the lighting look much more natural yet also cinematic. This was first seen in the previous RTX 2000 series, but performance is much better with Ampere.
DLSS might be more exciting for people who want to game comfortably at a higher resolution. It’s a form of super sampling or Deep Learning Super Sampling, to be exact. It renders the internal resolution and upscales it to a higher one. This means that the image quality is still great, yet you get much better performance.
Fortunately, the 3080 handles both of these features beautifully. The performance uplift in both Ray Tracing and DLSS is now anywhere between 50%-75% in some cases, sometimes even more.
Overall, the RTX 3080 is the perfect graphics card for most people. Even if you have the high-end 2080Ti from last year, you’ll still notice a huge improvement in performance, for half the price. The RTX 3080 is so good that it almost makes Nvidia’s own Turing architecture irrelevant. Whatever you throw at it, this card can handle it. You should think about making some space for this powerhouse in your next rig.
