If you can't see ahead of you more than 2 steps it may seem that way but If a 4080 doubles the performance of the 3080 then you would hit a CPU bottleneck in games like cyberpunk 2077 as they are currently CPU bottlenecked at 90FPS but we are hitting a GPU bottleneck of 50FPS at 4k so we don't experience it. Double GPU performance and you get 100FPS minimums with a 90 FPS CPU bottleneck cutting up your performance in the next two years. Keep the system for 2 GPU upgrades or four years of ownership and the 11900K will be holding the system back at 4K way more than the 5080 GPU.

The best time to upgrade is when a new platform launches with PCIE 5 and DDR5 but ignoring a 15% performance lead and acting like it won't matter during the lifetime of the platform is just plain wrong in my opinion.
