Only a few hours left before the official debut of the GeForce RTX 3090, the most powerful consumer graphics card ever presented and announced by NVIDIA on September 1st along with the other GeForce RTX 30 models. While we are all waiting for the expiry of the NDA to see how the graphics card behaves in terms of performance, on YouTube there are two gameplay videos that offer a preview of the first tests of the RTX 3090 in 8K gaming.
The videos in question come from Marques Brownlee and Linus Tech Tips who have been given the green light by NVIDIA to publish the GeForce RTX 3090 test for the well-known titles like Forza Horizon 4 and Control. It is therefore not a question of reviews but of the gameplay relating to these two games.
In the first video by Marques Brownlee, the GeForce RTX 3090 – paired with an 88-inch LG Signature ZX with G-Sync support – is capable of a frame-rate ranging from 42 to 60 FPS on Forza Horizon 4, while when you switch to the title of Control things change dramatically.
With RTX and DLSS enabled, the RTX 3090 drops to around 20 FPS with 8K output resolution and 5K rendering while playing Control; things get better by setting the resolution to 1440p (obviously) with a frame-rate that basically doubles, peaking at 50 FPS.
Turning to Linus Tech Tips, the video focuses primarily on the aesthetics of the board and its installation inside the case. As for the gameplay, however, the test includes Forza Horizon 4, Control, and also Doom Eternal, all without clearly showing what results in terms of FPS was produced.
These at the moment are the first details, we just have to wait for tomorrow until 6 AM PST to see the potential of the GeForce RTX 3090 24GB. In recent news, the performance review of the high-end graphics card was also leaked ahead of its time.
