Synthetic Benchmarks

3DMark Time Spy

3DMark Time Spy is a benchmark that needs no introduction for the PC enthusiast community. This benchmark slowly being replaced with the newer 3DMark Port Royal, but as of right now it’s still being used by many PC community members as a performance tool. Make no mistake about it either, Time Spy can still prove to be a solid indicator of potential GPU performance.

The results we saw fell pretty much in line with our expectations. Our EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti XC GAMING fell right behind the MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GAMING X TRIO when in stock operation, but managed to pass it with some tuning. That overclock  was able to push our score up 3% from 10,631 to 10,971. Of course, it should be noted that our MSI model managed to reach a higher score of 12,058 when it was overclocked and that was without any voltage adjustment in software.

3D Mark Port Royal

3DMark Port Royal is the latest and greatest benchmark available to download and it incorporates one of the biggest new visual fidelity features of the last few years, ray tracing. This test is stressful for any modern video card due to its heavy usage of ray tracing in all scenes. On most video cards this benchmark results in an absolute slideshow.

Once we got the data plotted into our graph it was clear to the naked eye that not much changed from before in terms of hierarchy here. Our NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Founders Edition was still finding its place at the bottom of the list. This meant the EVGA card was 2%  faster than the NVIDIA 2080 Super FE, with the EVGA model coming in 2nd to last when stock. Of course, applying a healthy overclock managed to push our EVGA card into 2nd place with a score of 7,136. This beats the stock MSI card by 3% but loses to the overclocked MSI cards 7,288 score by 2%.

  1. In regards to the bench charts, I am assuming my 1080ti performs worse than the 2080 S that is listed, correct?

    Well I have never personally owned a 1080 Ti and had none to test against here, but the general consensus is yes. The 2080 S should outperform the 1080 Ti so long as you do not run into a VRAM wall I would assume.

  3. I just upgraded to the 2080 Super (coming from the 1080 non-ti) and its a noticeable improvement so far. Mind you the 2080 S was all I could get my hands on as, well, what I want (a 3080) isn’t gonna happen anytime soon as both availability AND the tariff surcharges push me out of what I can spend right now.

    Anyways… Great review Eduardo! This makes me feel that “maybe” I could get by with a 3070 @ MSRP if I had to compromise any further..
