Nvidia tells us more about how well the RTX 3090 GPU performs 8K gaming



Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 launch saw the firm declare that its top-end Ampere graphics card can handle 8K gaming smoothly – meaning at 60 frames per second (fps) – but now further details have been shared on what kind of frame-rates we can expect with various games, and perhaps more importantly, how DLSS will fit into the equation when it comes to ray-traced titles.

Bear in mind that as with all the benchmarks shared thus far, these are based on Nvidia’s own internal tests, although this time, some PC spec details have been provided aside from the GPU being used. The RTX 3090 is paired with an Intel Core i9-9900K processor, along with 32GB of system RAM, and the benchmarks are conducted with high graphics settings (but not ultra), with ray tracing enabled wherever supported.

Running at plain 8K (7,680 x 4,320) resolution in games with no ray tracing, the 3090 dispatches more casual affairs like Rocket League with ease, averaging 108 fps. World of Warcraft sees a result of 73 fps, whereas slightly more demanding shooters still stay just above the magic 60 fps mark: Apex Legends records a result of 65 fps, and Destiny 2 hits 60 fps exactly.
