A rumor might be the truth unfolding or a marketing strategy by the manufacturer itself. Whatever the situation is we like to explore each and every one of them. The hunger for the knowledge of new technologies drive us. The long-awaited Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti 3DMark benchmark score has been leaked. By the looks of the screenshot, we can assume RTX 2080 Ti will have a 35% performance increase than GTX 1080 Ti.

The Leak of Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti 3DMark Benchmark Score

This is one of the biggest leak yet in the technology genre and a great news for gamers. This leak was shared by VideoCardz.com in a tweet showing the 3DMark benchmark scores of RTX 2080 Ti. It was apparently sent to them on their website by an anonymous source.

RTX 2080 Ti Leaked Score

The 3DMark Time Spy screen likely to be shared by some employee of Nvidia itself or AIB. AIB – Add-in-Board creates their own graphics cards using Nvidia’s tech. Only these two sources have the working GPU drivers for Turing and performance check. To our knowledge, not any other tech enthusiast or journalist possess the same to conduct this testing by themselves.


The Truth??

The choppy quality of the screenshot and anonymity of source makes a pretty good convincing factor of the legitimacy of this leak. If the photo truly is shared by an internal employee, it does explain why it is not a screenshot. At this crucial point, we are not able to verify if this is a legitimate entry or just another prank. Perhaps this is a marketing strategy by Nvidia to add fuel to the fire to hook us up for longer.

If the rumor said to be true then the generation GAP between 2080 Ti and 1080 Ti is very thin. Basing on the screenshot we can say RTX 2080 Ti has only managed to beat GTX 1080 Ti Founder’s Edition by 35%. The score obtained by Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti is 12,825 against GTX 1080 Ti’s 9500. On the other hand, during the launch, only 1080 Ti had great potential improvement than its predecessor. The GTX 1080 Ti beat GTX 980 Ti with an astonishing 79% permanence hike.

However, a 35% increase in performance from gentian to generation is decent. The GTX 1080 Ti is already a formidable opponent. Against that 35% boost is not a small deal but the concern is about the price. The company set a huge price tag on the RTX 20 series cards. But only for a 35% performance hike with this amount cuts down the performance per dollar. This price of 2080 Ti and the performance comparison will disappoint many gamers as well as tech enthusiast.


Ray of hope

Even after all of this saying it might be no big deal. Everything cannot be based on a single snapshot that was taken during the testing. There is a big possibility that the Turing was having some bottle-necking issues. Or the drivers might not be properly ready or some tuning was still undone. For whatever reason, the score might vary. And by “VARY” I mean in huge amount. We cannot determine anything based on only a leak of testing.


Our Verdict

Since the time of the announcement, there were multiple debates about the performance increase. Every forum every tech blog has estimated some amount of increase. The GTX 1080 Ti was already a great step by Nvidia which was actually tough to beat. According to many tech enthusiasts with generational comparisons, a 35-45% increase in performance in a generation will be in the margin.

If you do not want to spend your hard earned money for a 35% increase of performance then you are welcome to sit tight. Some tech lovers have already fallen in love with Nvidia’s RTX ray tracing and DLSS tech. They are already hoarding up every single penny they can collect to pre-order this bad boy. This is only a matter of choice which only you can make. “The Best Graphics Card” or “The Best Budget Graphics Card” the choice is yours.
