Leaked benchmarks show the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 offering as little as 5% better performance than the RTX 3080 for over twice the price

It is worth noting that the 3DMark Time Spy results are slightly lower than those posted by Videocardz yesterday. These showed the RTX 3090 with a 19% lead over the RTX 3080. Similarly, @TUM_APISAK has found Geekbench results showing a performance difference of 15.7% between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. Nonetheless, these initial benchmark results show the RTX 3090 in a bad light with a peak performance advantage over the RTX 3080 of under 20%.

We have seen multiple people trying to defend the RTX 3090 on the basis of it being a card designed for professionals, but NVIDIA does not pitch it as such. On the contrary, NVIDIA focused on the card’s gaming potential at its GeForce Special Event on September 1 with demos of gaming at 8K. Similarly, NVIDIA continues to claim that the RTX 3090 delivers the ‘ultimate gaming experience’ on its website. Early benchmark data does reinforce this to NVIDIA’s credit, albeit while emphasising how close the RTX 3080 gets to the RTX 3090.
