Competitors of GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile from AMD

It seems that there's no AMD equivalent for GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile. The nearest candidate is Radeon RX 580 Mobile, however, it's 54% slower and lower by 111 positions in our rating.

Here are some closest AMD rivals to GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile:

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile

Much newer (12 January 2021 vs 21 June 2017)

More pipelines (6144 vs 5120)

Finer manufacturing process technology (8 vs 12 nm)

Lower power consumption (115W vs 250W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

Advantages of NVIDIA Tesla V100 SXM2

Wider memory bus (4096 vs 256 bit)

Higher memory bandwidth (900.1 vs 384 GB/s)
