Nvidia just crushed the competition with their recent reveal of the full specs of the 30xx series...

Big Navi:

Specs‎: ‎Up to 80 CU / 5120 GPU cores

30xx Specs:

Nvidia CUDA CoresBoost Clock Speed (GHz)MemoryGraphics

RTX 3090 - 10,496 CORES - 1.70Ghz - 24GB GDDR6X350 ($1500)

RTX 3080 - 8704 Cores - 1.7Ghz - 110GB GDDR6X320 ($699)

RTX 3070 5888 Cores - 1.73Ghz - 8GB GDDR6220 - THIS IS A $499 CARD!!!

That said, Big Navi is supposed to drop at $550, and feature 16GB of (likely slower) RAM, but I still think that Nvidia won the bang for the buck war here, by a long shot. I'm not sure those extra 8GB are going to be worth the performance deficit against the 3070, and it definitely doesn't stack up to the higher end cards.

Are there any benchmarks of the 3080 vs 2080 and 1080?

I'm still on SLI 1080s because that's better than a 2080 in my opinion.

I'm probably going to get the 3080 but I want benchmark tests done that prove it's at least 200% better than one 1080. Not many games play nice with SLI but RB6 Siege does, plus there's RTX and the better NVEC if I get a 3080...

Looking to be a good upgrade for sure.

The embargo on benchmarks drops later this month. They're saying that the cheapest $500 3070 is more powerful than a 2080ti, nearly 3x more powerful.
