What you’ll see now is by far one of the biggest leaks about the new GeForce RTX cards. I am talking about the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti model in the 3DMark test.
This leak was brought to us by the Videocardz service, which claims that the following entry in the 3DMark database was posted by an Nvidia employee or an employee of one of the manufacturers of original versions of graphics cards. This is due to the fact that the drivers for the Turing cards have not been sent to the editorial office and testers so far. The taste of this unconfirmed leak is given by the very manner of its capture. The author did not make a screenshot (which is easy to forge), but a screenshot. On the one hand, it is hard to believe completely … but on the other hand it is difficult to deny it.
Well, there’s nothing to think about, because now we can take a look at the likely performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. In short, we can describe it like this – there is an increase, but not as impressive as in the transition from 980 Ti to 1080 Ti. In that case it was a 79% increase in the same test, and here we have only … 35% jump. I remind you of a possible early version of the drivers and the lack of a test to unlock the potential of the Tensor and RT cores, so this is a representation of pure performance. It does not change the fact that the best “performance / price” ratio is not at stake.
Interestingly, Nvidia was right in the case of the performance jump from Pascal to Turing cores. Recently, one company representative argued that 35% to 40% growth is at stake. Well, the lower bracket is done, but we should wait for the first unofficial tests before any raptures / insults.
