We’re all expecting NVIDIA’s upcoming 20-series GPUs to be quick. The question is by how much, compared to the company’s current offerings. Well, a couple of scores for the RTX 2080, leaked via 3DMark’s online results database, has provided us with something of an answer.
Twitter user APISAK was the first to spot the entry for the RTX 2080 (flagged by 3DMark as “not recognised” and therefore given the sad moniker of “Generic VGA”). While the 3DMark results have since been hidden, Wccftech’s Hassan Mujtaba managed to grab a few screenshots.
Adding some credibility to the results are the high core and memory clocks, as well as the driver version, 411.51. Currently, the highest available WHQL NVIDIA drivers are 399.24. Interestingly, the scores are about on-par with the 1080 Ti, which isn’t entirely unexpected, leaving the 2080 Ti as NVIDIA’s powerhouse.
In related news, scores from NVIDIA’s reviewer’s guide for the 20-series have also appeared online. Going by these numbers, the RTX 2080 is around 20 percent faster than the 1080 Ti, while the 2080 Ti is around 40-50 per cent.
Of course, given the differences compared to the 3DMark results, we’ll have to wait for proper benchmarks to get the real picture.
