The first benchmarks of NVIDIA’s upcoming Ampere flagship, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti or the supposed 3080 20GB have surfaced showing a marginal drop compared to the top-end 30-series part. Apart from the 3DMark synthetics, the gaming performance and mining capability of the GPU have also leaked out. Please we move on, please be sure to take them with a grain of salt.
Update: As noted by multiple outlet, this leak appears to be fake.
Across the various 3DMark tests, the RTX 3080 20GB is just 2-4% slower than the 3090 on average.
The gaming benchmarks show similar results, but here the advantage over the RTX 3080 is relatively larger, with the 3080 Ti being nearly 20% faster in GTA V, beating even the 3090 in The Witcher 3 on account of its higher clocks. The GPUs were paired with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X to avoid any bottlenecks, plus 32GB of DDR4 memory.
The mining performance of the RTX 3080 Ti is the same as the 3090 at 125MH/s, a decent uplift over the 3080’s 70-80MH/s. As far as the pricing goes, expect the RTX 3080 Ti will cost between $1,299-1,399. The GPU is expected to launch sometime in the second half of 2021 after the supply gets better.
