A new leak shows just how much gaming muscle the upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card will carry under its sleeve. The leaked benchmark shows incredible performance capabilities that dwarf those of the current Titan XP, a current top-of-the-line graphics card in Nvidia’s lineup.
The benchmark under consideration is 3DMark’s Timespy in which the RTX 2080 achieved a score of 10,147 and a graphics result of 10659. The test rig featured an Intel core i7-8700k chip and 16GB of RAM, according to a tweet by user @tum_apisak.

Supposing this leak is genuine, the GeForce RTX 2080 is a gaming monster that cannot be paralleled by the current generation of graphics cards. Even the mighty Titan XP seems like a dwarf in comparison. And that’s without considering an overclocking bonus. The benchmark details showed the RTX 2080 running at stock clock speeds, meaning we can expect more impressive numbers once overclocking is attained. NVidia has said it will make overclocking easier with the RTX 2000 series, thanks to a new stylish API.
The RTX 2080 also boasts a 3DMark Firestrike graphics score of 27,000 and 4k gaming capabilities.
The GeForce RTX 2080 is based on NVidia’s new Turing architecture which was released in August, promising “six times more performance” than the previous generation and the ability to support real-time raytracing – a rendering technique used in movie studios to generate cinematic effects and light reflections. With real-time raytracing, you’ll achieve the same graphics quality as that of the movie Cars.
This is an exciting moment for those looking to achieve higher gaming experiences. However, be ready to cough upwards of $700.
Stay tuned as we will be looking at the RTX series soon once it comes to light. In the meantime, you can preorder your RTX 2080 at Nvidia’s official website.
