NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 has been spotted in the Userbenchmark database.
NVIDIA RTX 3080: 2.1 GHz maximum clock, 10GB memory
It has been discovered that the latest GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards have been added to the most recent INF driver file. These drivers are often updated through Microsoft automatic updates sooner than they are released for consumers through official channels.
The latest entry lists Device ID of 2206, which is codenamed ‘NVIDIA Graphics Device‘. This is how NVIDIA lists their upcoming graphics cards before they are officially named. The ID has been confirmed by T4C Fantasy (the maintainer of TechPowerUP GPU database) and @_rogame to be GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card.
NVIDIA_DEV.1FD1 = “NVIDIA Secondary N18P-G0-MP-A1 (TU117-750-A1)”
NVIDIA_DEV.1FD5 = “NVIDIA Secondary N18P-G62-A1 (TU117-775-A1)”
NVIDIA_DEV.2206 = “NVIDIA Graphics Device”
The same 2206 ID has been found by @_rogame on the Userbenchmark website. It showcases a device with 10GB of memory clocked at 4750 Mhz. That’s an effective clock speed of 19 Gbps. The core clock has been reported at a maximum (limit) of 2.1 GHz. The limit is similar to the Turing series. The actual clock speed is likely to be under around 1.7 GHz as reported earlier. What this means is that we should not expect a big difference between RTX 20 and RTX 30 series in terms of clock speeds.
