RTX 2080 benchmarks appear at 3DMark

Results from GeVorce RTX 2080 video cards from Nvidia appear in the 3DMark database. In the Time Spy and Fire Strike benchmarks the map is about as fast as the GTX 1080 Ti.

According to VideoCardz the results appear in the 3DMark database because Nvidia made the first driver available to reviewers on Friday. An RTX 2080-card from Gigabyte gets 10,659 points in the graphical part of the Time Spy-benchmark, another card, of which the brand is not known, fetches 9319 points . The difference of about 14 percent can be due to deviating clock speeds and overclocking settings.

The scores are comparable to those of GTX 1080 Ti video cards. Variants with custom coolers from other manufacturers often reach more than ten thousand points.

At the end of August scores also appeared in the 3DMark database that supposedly belonged to the RTX 2080. The scores were comparable. At the time it was not certain that the video card was involved, because the name was not yet recognized in the database.

VideoCardz also shows a screenshot with a score of the Fire Strike benchmark. In it, an unnamed RTX 2080 video card gets 27,085 points. That is also comparable to the score that a GTX 1080 Ti achieves in that benchmark.

Compared to its direct predecessor, the GTX 1080, the RTX 2080 in 3DMark Time Spy is about 40 percent faster and in Fire Strike is that’s about 30 percent. The price of the new video card is much higher with 849 euros. GTX 1080 Ti-graphics cards are now for sale from around 650 euros and GTX 1080 models are available from around 500 euros.

The current 3DMark benchmarks do not use the RT cores for raytracing on the RTX video cards are present. In most cases, games will not use these cores for the time being. Studios must install special RTX support. Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, and Battlefield V, for example, are partly incorporating raytracing.

According to VideoCardz extensive reviews of the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti video cards appear next week on Wednesday
