Hardware Leaks (_rogame) has shared the first benchmark for one of NVIDIA’s upcoming Ampere-based graphics cards. It isn’t clear whether this is the GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti/SUPER, or RTX 3090/TITAN, but the GPU annihilates the current generation’s TITAN RTX and RTX 2080 Ti.
The mysterious Ampere GPU, which features a 1935 MHz core and 6000 MHz memory (an obvious error, possibly due to an early driver or new type of GDDR6 memory), managed to score 18257 in the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark, while MSI’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z and NVIDIA TITAN RTX only scored 15079 and 14947, respectively. The only GPU that it falls short of is KINGPIN’s custom, heavily overclocked EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (2385 MHz core, 2170 MHz memory).
The breakdown, courtesy of _rogame:
- 30.98% better than a stock RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition
- 21.07% better than a stock MSI RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z
- 22.14% better than a stock NVIDIA TITAN RTX
- 8.30% better than the best NVIDIA TITAN V result under LN2
- 2.18% less than KINGPIN’s overclocked EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC
So, what we appear to be looking at is a 31 percent minimum improvement from the Turing generation, which isn’t too shabby. But what are you willing to pay for that kind of performance increase?
