Only a few hours after the first RTX 4080 test results appeared on Geekbench, the same undisclosed SKU has now been evaluated by 3DMark software.
The reputable hardware leaker MEGAsizeGPU is the first to provide the RTX 4080 3DMark results from TimeSpy tests. According to TimeSpy and TimeSpy Extreme, the leaker has a score of 14718 and a score of 28599, respectively. Based on past leaks and official gaming performance data, this is roughly what was predicted from this card.
Now that MEGAsizeGPU has shared full screenshots from the 3DMark test, we can look at actual GPU clock speeds in use. It’s worth noting that the boost frequency of the RTX 4080 is slightly lower than that of the RTX 4090 (2508 MHz vs 2520 MHz), which is presumably why we are observing clock speeds that are comparable to those approaching 3.0 GHz during this test. The leaker did include images of the packaging for Inno3D’s RTX 4080 iChill X3, suggesting that the card used in the test was likely a factory-overclocked model.
With these 3DMark TimeSpy scores, the card did better than it did on GeekBench. With this, performance is expected to increase by 51%-54% compared to the RTX 3080 12GB variant (which had more cores than 10GB). In both configurations, the RTX 4080 is 32% faster than the RTX 3090 Ti. In the Extreme 4K settings, the RTX 4090 looks 36.8% quicker than the RTX 4080.
NVIDIA has announced the release date for the RTX 4080 GPU for November 16th. The AD103 GPU has 9728 CUDA cores and 16GB GDDR6X memory in this variant. After NVIDIA discontinued the 12GB model last month, this is the sole RTX 4080 SKU planned.
The normal TDP of the card is 320W; however, MEGAsizeGPU has confirmed that it can get the turbo to 2.9 GHz.
