The upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 has been spotted on the 3DMark database barely hours before NVIDIA is expected to formally announce the card along with the GeForce GTX 1070.
The benchmark listing reveals that the GeForce GTX 1080 will have 8GB of GDDR5X memory clocked at 2500 MHz. The GPU itself has a base clock of 1.6GHz, with a boost clock of up to an impressive 1.8GHz.
In the 3DMark11 Performance test at 1280 x 720 resolution, the GTX 1080 manages a score of 27683 points, which is a pretty decent increase over the GM200 based cards. In the 3DMark FireStrike Extreme test rendered at 2560 x 1440 resolution, the card scores an impressive 8959 points, which again is higher than overclocked GM200 cards such as the GTX 980 Ti. However, when compared clock to clock, it appears the GeForce GTX 1080 isn’t very impressive.
The card is expected to be unveiled at NVIDIA’s special event that will be streamed live on Twitch at this link starting 6PM PST today.
