An unknown GeForce graphics card has been spotted in the 3DMark database delivering 30% performance uplift from the current flagship.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, 3090 or 3080?
The benchmark result spotted by Rogame in the 3DMark database is hidden (private), meaning the result is not visible for the public and cannot be linked to. If the result was showing a graphics card that was already released, chances are 3DMark would have tagged the result correctly. This was not the case with this entry, in fact, the only known thing is that the card is undetected and the manufacturer is NVIDIA Corporation.
The graphics card spotted by the leaker has a 1935 MHz boost clock and 6000 MHz memory clock. We are unsure why 3DMark software lists the memory as 6 GHz. For GeForce RTX 2080 Ti the software reads 1750 MHz (multiplied by 8 gives 14 Gbps speed). This 6 GHz entry might confirm that the memory type is not yet properly detected by the software, so it might be the upcoming GDDR6X variant after all. However, no matter if we multiply the value by 2 (12 Gbps) or 4 (24 Gbps), it just does not make sense. Thus, it could be an error.
The result puts the graphics card 31% above stock GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. The 30% upgrade path for the next series is an average performance boost per generation. Hence, it is expected that the model listed is indeed RTX 3080 Ti or how the other leakers call it, the RTX 3090.
