The folks over at Chiphell (via Videocardz) have leaked overclocked performance of the upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. The benchmark in question is the ever present 3DMark and consists of all its different variants including Fire Strike, Fire Strike Extreme, Fire Strike Ultra and even Time Spy. The 1080 Ti is the flagship graphics card for this generation of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and promises double digit performance gains over the GTX 1080 according to this synthetic test.

NVIDIA Geforce ‘GTX 1080 Ti’ 3DMark benchmarks showcase a massive ~30% boost over the 1080 OC for 4K AAA levels of gaming performance

The GTX 1080 Ti is based on the GP102-350-A1 die which has the same number of 3584 CUDA Cores as the GP102-400-A1 die the Titan XP rocks. The major difference between the two is 1) the GTX 1080 Ti has a slightly smaller bus width at 352 bits (a very odd number) but a much faster memory speed to compensate for it. It also has 11GB worth of vRAM (which either caused the odd bus width, or is because of the same) which is 1GB less than the Titan XP. With that out of the way and without any further ado, here are the benchmarks:

The benchmark results are as follows (baselines are courtesy of Videocardz):

  • The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti (OC) scores 10825 points in TimeSpy, which is ~39% faster than the 1080 (OC)
  • The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti (OC) scores 7362 points in FireStrike Ultra which is ~28% faster than the 1080 (OC)
  • The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti (OC) scores 15093 points in FireStrike Extreme which is ~31% faster than the 1080 (OC)
  • The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti (OC) scores 31135 points in FireStrike Ultra which is ~29% faster than the 1080 (OC)

The Ti is clocked slightly higher than the XP and of course the biggest difference is that the Ti will retail for roughly half the price at an MSRP of $699. The NVIDIA GP102 Pascal GPU packs 12 Billion transistors and has 6 graphics processing clusters of which two come feature disabled SMs. This adds up to a total of 28 SM units with 128 cores each. ASUS, EVGAZotac, Inno3D and MSI have also teased their new cards which will be available during launch day.

Overall, you are looking at a very impressive performance increase of roughly 30% over the GTX 1080 Ti OC. Of course, this is just a synthetic benchmark and simply indicates the realistically attainable performance jump. Real life gaming performance is usually under this ideal mark. That said, these numbers show a GPU that is capable of 4K AAA gaming levels of visual fidelity and something that will probably be a good buy for owners of a 4K setup that do not want to go multi-GPU.
