Leaked GeForce RTX 2080 benchmark outperforms the mighty Titan Xp

There is more spilled when it comes to the approaching GeForce RTX 2080, with a leaked benchmark that shows the graphics card with a storming score showing a clean pair of heels for even the mighty Titan Xp of Nvidia's current crop GPUs.

The benchmark in question is Timepy from 3DMark and it is the first test result spotted in the wild and with which the RTX 2080 is tested with the latest graphics driver's (411.51), which support the following Turing maps.

As tweeted by Tum Apisak (via WccfTech), which spilled previous GPU leaks, the score achieved was 10,147, with a graphical result of 10,659. The test bench had an Intel Core i7-8700K processor and 16 GB system memory.

Assuming this is a leak on the money, that RTX 2080 benchmark is blazing fast, and as we said in the beginning, it beats the Titan Xp compared to what we've seen in our own Timespy benchmarking in TechRadar laboratories.

Overclock bonus

The benchmarks show that the GeForce RTX 2080 runs on stock clocks (including the clock speed of the memory), so we can view even more convincing numbers once the overclocking has been applied. And furthermore, the good news is that Nvidia makes overclocking even easier with these new GPUs, thanks to a handy new API that we are discussing here.

Tum Apisak further claimed that the RTX 2080 achieved a 3DMark Firestrike graphic score of about 27,000, which means an even bigger jump for the Titan XP. We have also heard that Nvidia today is writing at the time of writing about the 4K machines of the card.

Exciting stuff indeed for those hoping for the best of this new GPU, which Nvidia throws at $ 799 (£ 749, AU $ 1,199) when it arrives next week. Remember that last year the Titan Xp was launched at $ 1,200 (£ 1,159 in the UK, which is about AU $ 2,120).

The power of the RTX 2080 is not exactly a surprise, because there were leaks that pointed to the fact that it could be faster than a Titan Xp dating back to May (when we still believed that this card would probably be called) the GTX 1180).
