NVIDIA is expected to unveil the next-generation GeForce GTX 1080 tomorrow! Ahead of its launch benchmark results of the card have made their way to Futuremark’s online database. Before we get into the results we have heard that the GTX 1080 will have 8GB of GDDR5X running at 10 GHz! Right now the GTX 980 Ti has 6GB of GDDR5 (non-X) running at 7 GHz, so that is a nice bump up.
Now to the results, they come from Futuremark’s 3DMark 11 and 3DMark benchmarks. Starting with 3DMark 11, which was run on the performance setting the GTX 1080 had a graphics score of 27683. For reference the GTX 980 Ti scores between 23000 and 25000 in this test. This is a nice bump in performance and keep in mind this is the GTX 1080 not the GTX 1080 Ti.
Next we have the newer 3DMark running the Fire Strike Extreme benchmark. The GTX 1080 scores 8959, an overclocked GTX 980 Ti scored around 8700 in this test, so it is not a massive increase in performance.
I guess we will get a lot more details not only on performance, but temperatures, power, and the Pascal architecture tomorrow! Stay tuned!
