RTX 3080, will 10gb be enough?

next year we will probably see 3090 TI and the Super Editions.

with 48GB VRAM 🙂  ... like the Quadro cards (RTX 8000) ... there are certainly optimization that can be done to reduce VRAM usage, but as 4K is now the norm and 8K is becoming much more affordable and popular (gaming use primarily with Rakuten streaming 8K plans and NetFlix likely to follow the new "Lost In Space" was shot in 8K).  This trend isn't going to stop at 8K either, 16K has been demonstrated ... the inevitable march of technology and hopefully we can do away with AA filters of various flavors.

Cheers, Rob.

I found it strange they only put 8GB in the 3080. The 2060, 2070, & 2080 super all have 8. The 2080 ti has 11.

There is the 3070 also with 8 then the 3080 with only 10 and then a huge jump to 24 with the 3090.

It does not seem right that the 2080 would not have at least 12 or 16 to future proof it a bit.

I'm glad I'm not planning a build now.  Hopefully in a year or so a 2080 with 12gb+ ram will be avaliable for around $800.

They're leaving themselves some room to respond to Big Navi. I think they're sure that the 3090 will not be beaten but possibly the 3080 could be. Once Big Navi specs are released in the next while Nvidia will then produce a 3080 super card that tops Big Navi is my assumption.

VRAM is very important, but keep in mind that also the cpu needs to be up to do its task. The system is as good as its weakest part...

 

With P3Dv5 my server has 2x 4K in NVSurround with a 2080 Ti.

Settings
Textures 1024

AG range medium / Trees Very Dense /  Buildings Dense

LOD range High ( with pr scenery and the EnvShade haze no visual difference with Ultra )

Clouds Shadows quality Low | Range High

PSXT + RT with AIG 

 

My VRAM never exeeds 7.4 Gb or 60% GPU

It's interesting how some of these cards come with a 3yr warranty then I see the zotec (and possibly others) have a 5yr warranty. I didn't go thru each one. thanks for sharing

No, not if you want to increase visual fidelity to very high levels (who wouldn't) ... on my Titan RTX with 24GB VRAM, I demonstrated MSFS using 19GB, I demonstrated P3D using 16GB, I demonstrated XP11 using 19GB.

What resolution are you talking about? I'm currently very happy with my QHD monitor and can't see me changing it any time soon so suspect that 10GB will be enough for me.

You also said "but as 4K is now the norm and 8K is becoming much more affordable and popular" - the norm for whom? Not gamers generally, as over 65% of them (if Steam is to be believed) still use 1920x1080. Less than 3% in the latest Steam Hardware survey use 4k. I think that NVIDIA is pitching the 3080 at the upper end of their main user base rather than the small, niche areas where 4k is more prevalent.

I would almost guarantee he is talking about 4k.  I use a 43" at 4k.  Since it's right in front of my face I find 1440p to be sub optimal.

Certainly at that screen size. I couldn't fit a 40"+ monitor/TV into my workspace so 4k would be an overkill, not to mention an unnecessary resource drain, for me.

Not really. It'll be a very sweet spot for a lot of gamers. Maybe not for some simmers but for most people the 3080 or even the 3070 will do a fantastic job even for simming. For those who want more there's always the 3090 and I wouldn't be surprised if they release a 3080 super or something in the middle sometime next year which would add maybe another 10% on top of the 3080.

Heck...I'm just gonna hold out for the 4000 series where they'll introduce cards that you just plug desktop sticks of ram in them to make your own vram capacity. (up to 1tb of course). 🤣

Been on a Titan Maxwell 12gb for 3 years that has served me very well (and for $400 off Craig's list...almost classified as a steal), but just deciding what 3080 flavor I'm going to upgrade to. (Unless the 4000 series has already been announced....I don't keep up with it really....more a simmer than a hardware guy).

I believe the 3080 will have a option for 20Gb later on this year. There are too many that want to play  MSFS 2020 in 4K.

Until the bench testing is out you cannot assume anything, some think the GPU is the magic bullet for MSFS 4K with fantastic frame rates, when for all we know the difference between the 3080 and 3090 may be less than you think.

An NVidia GPU that can run P3D/MSFS2020 at 8K with satisfactory frame rates is likely to have an equivalent price tag of $8K... 😁

Seriously, just when you thought that 4K would do it for a long time to come, now you see 8K etc. being hyped. If you ask me, the law of diminishing marginal returns starts to kick beyond 4K.
