Rumor: Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 shows its face in 3DMark

We've got more to report in our recent streak of Pascal rumors today. has released what it is claiming to be benchmarks of Nvidia's presumed next-gen flagship, the GeForce GTX 1080. The benchmarks include a run of 3DMark 11’s Performance preset and the Fire Strike Extreme preset.


The purported benchmarks show a card equipped with 8GB of graphics memory. VideoCardz guesses the GTX 1080 uses GDDR5X running at a base speed of 2500 MT/s. One of the benchmarks shows the core clock of the card running as high as a whopping 1860MHz. If these frequencies prove to be accurate for a reference GTX 1080, they're about 80% higher than the boost frequency of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.

The 3DMark 11 performance preset on the card in question yields a score of 27683 points. That score is a fair bit above the 23,000 to 25,000 range VideoCardz cites for the GeForce GTX Titan X. The Fire Strike Extreme scores line up with expectations for the GTX 1080, too. The card scores 8959 on the Fire Strike Extreme benchmark. That score is significantly higher than factory-massaged GeForce GTX 980 Tis, which tend to score in the mid-7000s.
