Nvidia GTX 1080 Achieves Boost Clock of Up to 1860 MHz in Leaked 3DMark, Massive Gains Over Maxwell
The first 3DMark benchmark results of the GTX 1080 have just leaked out, revealing some impressive gains in performance for Nvidia’s newly-unveiled flagship graphics card.
The performance chart in 3DMark shows GTX 1080’s scores in Extreme, Performance and FireStrike modes, as well as compare the numbers against those of other current high-end products from Nvidia and AMD, from the GTX 970 or R9 390, and up.
The GTX 1080 appears to be two times as powerful as both the aforementioned, with the GTX Titan X and 980 Ti only managing to achieve 79 per cent and 76 per cent of the 1080’s performance in all tests.
Even more interesting, the card achieves a boost clock of up to 1860 MHz, which is beyond the advertised 1733 MHz.
In 3DMark FireStrike at 4K, the GTX 1080 scores at least a 1000 point lead over the Maxwell cards, which is simply incredible isn’t it?
Keep in mind that these are just preliminary results which are said to be easily achievable on Founders Edition using Air cooling. So we expect overclockers to set some new records once the cards is launched.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 will have an MSRP of $599, with Founders Edition costing another $100 and will be available to purchase on May 27th.
