The performance has skyrocketed by 44%!MSI RTX 4080 Super Dragon in-depth evaluation: CPU has become the biggest worry

The RTX 4090 graphics card released by NVIDIA has brought the entire graphics card market back to life with its industry-leading performance.

For the RTX 40 series, to better prove the value of the Ada architecture, more GPUs with different cores are needed to prove it.

Today I will bring the test report of RTX 4080, which is currently positioned as the sub-flagship of the RTX 40 series, from MSI Super Dragon Edition.

RTX 4080 Specifications:

First let’s take a look at the overall specs of the RTX 4080.

– The number of core stream processors is 9728, about 40% less than RTX 4090, and even less than RTX 3080 Ti.

– The video memory specification is 16GB DDR6X. This time, the video memory capacity is relatively sufficient, which can well meet the needs of 4K.

– In terms of power consumption, the RTX 4080 is rated at only 320W, and it seems that the energy consumption ratio will be quite good.

The RTX 4080 Super Dragon adopts a standard three-fan design, which is basically the standard configuration of the current 40 series non-public graphics cards.

The fan adopts a double-ball blade design, and the three blades are fixed as a set to improve the overall strength of the fan.

Performance test project introduction:

For children’s shoes who are interested in further understanding of comparative performance, detailed test data will be provided here. The test is roughly divided into the following parts: GPU theoretical performance, GPU benchmark test, game performance test, hardware acceleration test, power consumption test. The old rules, the amount of data will be relatively large. There are certain updates on the test items, and the game part will include five parts: DX9, DX11, DX12, VULKAN, and DXR.
