Watch the GeForce RTX 3080 get medieval on an RTX 2080 Ti in Doom Eternal

Nvidia just threw the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti under the bus and then backed over the body a couple of times just to be safe.

In a video published this morning, the company shows its new $700 GeForce RTX 3080 leaving its older $1,200 sibling, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, in the dust while running iD's Doom Eternal at 4K resolution and max settings.

The video shows both cards running side by side at times. Assuming it's all using the same settings and underlying hardware, it's a crushing performance for the GeForce RTX 3080, which is pushing 150 fps vs. the 105-fps range of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

You can watch the video below and then quietly cry tears of joy.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
