Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 benchmarks just leaked — and AMD should be worried

Leaked GeForce RTX 3080 benchmarks promise big bump over RTX 2080 Ti

Anticipation is building around Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080, and a new set of leaked benchmarks reveal a huge leap over last generation — and could give Nvidia a big boost over AMD in the next-gen GPU wars.

Spotted by Hardware Leaks, a 3DMark benchmark result for what’s claimed to be the GeForce RTX 3080 shows that it’s up to 21% faster the GeForce RTX Titan, Nvidia’s most powerful graphics card. But the Titan isn’t really a consumer GPU, so for a better comparison, the GeForce RTX 3080 achieved a score of 18,257, which comes in at 30% faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition, a top-end current-generation graphics card.

It’s worth noting that the GeForce RTX 3080 wasn’t mentioned by name. Rather, the benchmark result was labelled as “unknown Nvidia Ampere GPU.” But as Nvidia tends to usher in a new generation of GPUs with a top-end graphics card, we can expect this card to be the equivalent of the RTX 3080 even if it doesn’t end up using that nomenclature.
