7900 XTX vs RTX 4080, 20 Games at 4K, 1440p & 1080p

AMD’s 7900 XTX graphics card is taking on Nvidia’s RTX 4080 for much less cash! I’ve contrasted both graphics cards in 20 different video games at 4K, 1440p and also 1080p resolutions to show you all the distinctions! AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX has 24 jobs of GDDR6 memory, while Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 has less with 16 jobs, but it’s obtained quicker GDDR6X. The 7900 XTX has a bigger memory bus and also more memory data transfer though. The 7900 XTX also has a greater TGP, it requires more power, which is why AMD suggests an 800 watt power supply as a minimum, while Nvidia recommends at the very least 750 watts for the 4080. The 7900 XTX is launching with an MSRP of $1000 USD, while Nvidia’s RTX 4080 prices $200 more at $1200 USD. Is it worth paying much more for Nvidia’s RTX 4080? To discover, I have actually compared both graphics cards in this test system. The most recent variation of Windows 11 22H2 was used with core seclusion off, and the most up to date vehicle drivers with resizable BAR allowed. Alright let’s get right right into the 20 video game comparison at 3 different resolutions! After the games we’ll contrast whatever else like

thermals, power draw, efficiency per watt and cost per framework to figure out which GPU supplies the ideal value. Allow’s start with Cyberpunk 2077. There’s no ray mapping, DLSS or FSR right here, yet we’ll examine with those made it possible for quickly. I have actually obtained the 1080p results down the base, 1440p in the center, and 4K up the top, with the 7900 XTX below the RTX 4080. AMD’s 7900 XTX was reaching a greater ordinary FPS at 1440p and 4K, nevertheless the 4080 had less dips in performance, as revealed by the much greater 1% low outcomes in all 3 resolutions. The 7900 XTX is able to defeat the 4080 in 1% lows in various other video games like Apex Legends. This video game has a 300 FPS limit, which both GPUs were getting to at 1080p, and also I’m guessing this should be influencing the 1% low outcome also, since the 7900 XTX was supplying a much greater 1% low at 1440p, and regarding the same at 4K as 1080p. Halo Infinite on the various other hand preferred the RTX 4080, regardless of resolution. The differences at 1440p as well as 1080p were the greatest in support of the 4080 out of all 20 video games examined. The 7900 XTX truly had a hard time right here, which sounds insane to claim as it’s still doing 92 FPS at max setups 4K, it’s simply that percentage-wise the 4080 was much

better in this one. Radeon graphics tend to do better in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and that held true with the 7900 XTX too, which was getting to greater typical FPS and 1% lows in any way three resolutions contrasted to the extra expensive RTX 4080. Various other video games like Fortnite usually choose Nvidia graphics. The RTX 4080 was 16% faster than the 7900 XTX at 1440p. This video game normally has DLSS support, which might be used to boost the 4080 even better, nevertheless at the time of screening it’s not offered in the current chapter 4, which relocates to unbelievable engine 5.1, however evidently it’s returning later on. Red Dead Redemption 2 is our first Vulkan game, as well as although the RTX 4080 had a refined lead at 1080p, the 7900 XTX was better ahead at 1440p and also 4K, with a 7% as well as 18% lead respectively. Both graphics cards were quite enclose Microsoft’s Flight Simulator at 1080p as well as 1440p resolutions. The 4080 had a subtle lead, once we get to the highest possible 4K resolution the 4080 has a much more apparent 18% higher average frame price. The distinction to ordinary FPS wasn’t really that big in Dying Light 2, yet have a look at the dips in efficiency as gauged by the 1% lows. The 7900 XTX was a lot further in advance, which indicates a much more consistent as well as stable experience, something I ‘d much choose when playing compared to the minimal

differences seen with the average FPS. God of War was an additional where the 7900 XTX had enormous increases in the 1% lows, in this situation at 1080p and also 1440p, with the difference at 4K being much smaller. Forza Horizon 5 was likewise more constant with the 7900 XTX, as its 1% lows were clearly in advance of the 4080 at all 3 resolutions. That claimed, the 4080 was reaching higher typical FPS, however the margins are smaller compared to what we’re seeing in the 1% lows. That’s not the instance in all racing games however, F1 2021 was plainly doing much better with the 4080 at all resolutions, both in regards to typical FPS as well as 1% lows, among the largest losses for the 7900 XTX out of all 20 games tested. Borderlands 3 often tends to do better with Radeon graphics from my previous testing, which was seen below also. The 1% lows were really close at 1080p, however otherwise the 7900 XTX had a clear lead. Metro Exodus Enhanced was doing far better with the 4080. The severe preset collections ray traced representations to ultra, so this could be why the 7900 XTX suffered its biggest loss at 4K out of all 20 games tested below. We’ll look extra at RT, DLSS and also FSR in a minute. See Dogs Myriad was in advance on the 7900 XTX at 1440p and 4K, however as you’ll see soon, things alter a fair bit if we desire to utilize ray tracing. Instead than chat with the last 6 video games, I’ll just quickly browse the results so we can obtain into the more interesting things. Feel free to stop briefly the video if you desire a closer take a look at these outcomes. The factor I try to test a minimum of 20 video games is to ensure that we can obtain a far better rounded average, as opposed to making final thoughts from fewer data points. On standard over all 20 games evaluated, at 4K the RX 7900 XTX was 0.26% faster than the RTX 4080, so essentially absolutely nothing.

11 of the 20 games tested were leaning in the direction of Nvidia, however the distinctions might be bigger with AMD. It actually depends on the specific video game, yet typically speaking in a 20 video game average there’s generally no distinction in between both GPUs. Stepping down to the reduced 1440p resolution and also the 7900 XTX was practically one percent slower currently. Once more it’s very little of a distinction generally when we element in all 20 video games, but some titles actually prefer AMD, while others like Halo Infinite do way much better with Nvidia. The space gets larger at the lower 1080p resolution, with the 7900 XTX currently almost 4% slower than the 4080. Once again Halo seemed to favor Nvidia one of the most out of these 20 video games, while just a few games had a clear lead with the AMD GPU. 14 of our 20 games saw much less than a 5% distinction one method or the other. At this reduced resolution CPU difference is necessary as well, as hardware unboxed has the 7900 XTX a little ahead of the 4080 in their 16 video game standard at 1080p, yet they utilized a 5800X3D CPU. If we instead compare the games where 1% lows were measured, well the 7900 XTX has even more of a lead compared to just looking at the standards. Which makes feeling, as in much of the video games we considered the 1% lows were clearly in advance there, so also if AMD isn’t directly winning in ordinary FPS, in a lot more cases it does appear to offer the more stable experience. Here’s how framework prices look if we instead take the average of all 20 games whatsoever resolutions. I assume this better permits us to visually see the difference. The RTX

4080 was ahead at 1080p, it still kept a minor lead at 1440p, and also then the 7900 XTX just handled to interrupt front at 4K. It’s no surprise that the 7900 XTX is using much better worth. It costs $200 less contrasted to the RTX 4080, and also as we have actually just seen it’s putting up a great fight in terms of average FPS also. Of program this doesn’t aspect in various other benefits Nvidia uses, such as remarkable ray mapping or DLSS. Right here’s just how Cyberpunk 2077 work on both graphics cards at 1080p. I’ve got the 7900 XTX over and also the RTX 4080 listed below. The supply result without RT is first, complied with by RT on, and also after that we have actually obtained RT on plus available upscaling methods. This game has support for both FSR and also DLSS, and also both done generally the exact same on the 4080. The 7900 XTX can not use DLSS, however with FSR allowed it’s reaching a 51% higher average structure rate compared to FSR off. The 4080 was obtaining a 52% boost with FSR on, so a comparable margin. Although both GPUs were quite close with each other without RT or any kind of upscaling, with RT on the 4080 currently has a substantial 57% lead. This pattern proceeds at the higher 1440p and also 4K resolutions. Nvidia plainly has a side in this video game with ray tracing allowed, and whether we select to use FSR or DLSS, the 4080 runs about the very same, though naturally aesthetic high quality will also vary. Dying Light 2 likewise has both DLSS and also FSR, and also once again the 4080 was running concerning the very same with either enabled in terms of

framework rate. At 1440p as well as 4K the 7900 XTX was reaching higher framework prices with RT off, yet then once ray mapping obtains activated the 4080 now has a clear lead, once more suggesting Nvidia’s exceptional RT performance. Enjoy Dogs Legion is an example of a game that has DLSS, yet no FSR support, so it’s not feasible to get a speed boost with the 7900 XTX. Naturally there are other video games that only have FSR support and also no DLSS, yet Nvidia can still utilize FSR, so having the ability to utilize both FSR and DLSS is a clear benefit with the 4080. The 4080 was still doing better with RT on in this video game, although that the 7900 XTX was doing much better with RT off, a minimum of at 1440p as well as 4K. The computer with the 7900 XTX installed was attracting more power from the wall in three various video games at 4K max setups. Dying Light 2 was utilizing 8% more power with the 7900 XTX, Cyberpunk was using 7% more, while ruin was utilizing 6% more. This discusses why AMD suggests a bigger power supply. This results in the RTX 4080 being better from a performance per watt point of view in all three of these games. The 4080 was hitting higher FPS in Cyberpunk and DOOM while also making use of much less power, however lagged in Dying Light 2, which is why that distinction in that

game was a lot smaller in terms of efficiency per watt. Now while the RTX 4080 card I’ve got is rather large, the fact is basically all 4080s get on the bigger side when compared to the 7900 XTX. The 7900 XTX is much more affordable, and much more like a typical graphics card dimension. Keeping that large cooler size difference in mind, the 7900 XTX was running a little bit warmer in Cyberpunk at 4K max setups, though this isn’t truly straight comparable as the means both GPUs utilize sensors to measure temperature level varies anyway. As for chauffeur stability, I didn’t have any major concerns with either card. There was one circumstances where Red Dead Redemption 2 totally froze up on the 7900 XTX, yet that was the only trouble I had as well as I wasn’t able to recreate it, and I certainly have actually had random one of concerns like that with Nvidia. I wouldn’t check out as well a lot right into this, from my very own screening both cards seemed rather steady. Something odd I observed was that it took a lot longer to boot the system with the 7900 XTX set up. Almost double the amount of time between pressing the power switch as well as reaching the Windows desktop. The AMD system simply stayed at a black display for far longer. I’m not really also sure what the offer is there, maybe it’s simply that my MSI Z690 Unify

motherboard will have an approaching biographies update that boosts it, yet I did check with Steve at Hardware Unboxed as well as he didn’t have this problem with his 5800X3D test system. Alright so both of these GPUs are clearly excellent for pc gaming, but is the RTX 4080 worth paying 20% more money for? Honestly for many people, most likely not. That’s quite a premium to pay for better functions like DLSS as well as remarkable ray mapping. I truly believe it depends exactly how much you value those. The 4080 was normally quicker at reduced resolutions like 1080p, yet the majority of people most likely aren’t investing this much money for 1080p video gaming anyhow. The space encloses at higher resolutions with the 7900 XTX at some point doing a little better in our 20 game standard. The more affordable cost with the AMD card results in better worth from an expense per frame perspective, while still having the ability to run any type of contemporary AAA video game at 4K max setups. The 7900 XTX does use even more power and also runs a little warmer, but it’s much smaller sized and also will certainly fit much easier in smaller cases. Plus it also supplies DisplayPort over Type-C and it still makes use of the older power ports if that’s something you’re truly paranoid about. If you’re intending on acquiring either of these GPUs after that you’re possibly after a premium CPU as well, so examine out this video over here next where I have actually contrasted the most effective CPUs from Intel and also AMD. Or if you wish to see just how much better the RTX 4080 is compared to what Nvidia used in 2015 after that look into this video clip instead. I’ll see you over in one of those next!.
