Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gets Geekbenched

Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti launch appears to be imminent, especially as Nvidia has teased a new announcement on May 31. With GeForce RTX 30-series Ti graphics cards set to be available in early June, the majority of Nvidia's partners already have the boards on hand. Therefore it is inevitable that benchmark results will leak. 

An unknown Nvidia partner has accidentally (or maybe not so accidentally?) posted a benchmark result of a PC based on the company's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics board in Geekbench 5's CUDA test. Based on the specifications listed by the benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has 10,240 CUDA cores and carries 12GB of GDDR6X memory featuring a 19 GT/s data transfer rate as well as a 384-bit interface. 

The card scored 238,603 points, which is comparable to results demonstrated by Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3090 and even A100 boards. Indirectly, this confirms preliminary specifications of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which are comparable to the GeForce RTX 3090. 

There is a big catch with Geekbench 5 CUDA results. Geekbench typically does not run any test of long enough duration to put the card in a steady state, which basically means the GPU stays relatively cool and runs at its maximum clocks. That said, what Geekbench shows is typically theoretical max performance and not sustained performance. That means that comparing CUDA scores from Geekbench might not be the most accurate approach. 

Anyhow, since we are dealing with an unofficial leak, take this information with a grain of salt. Given the recent happenings, we're sure to learn more officially from Nvidia soon.

    Not really much of a "launch" if it is going to be unobtanium.

    Well it's maybe as a Formula 1 racing car. exists only in 1 or 2 prototypes, but unavailable to the general public 😊🏎

    In gaming, this will be barely any better than the RTX 3080 (almost 216,000 in Geekbench) but will launch at somewhere around a 30% markup in price?!

    Exhibit A: Corporate Greed

    It costs up to 1/3 less than a 3090 with probably no more than a 5% performance reduction. Sounds like bargain.

    I don't think using the RTX 3090 as an example helps your argument.

    The fact that the RTX 3090 costs so much to begin with.
    Exhibit B: Corporate Greed
    Creating a top-tier product, at an obscene price, so you can sell more of a cheaper but comparable product is a common sales tactic that is as old as commerce itself.
    Exhibit C: Corporate Greed

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Doesn't make any of them true.

    RTX Titan - $2500. RTX 3090 much faster. 40% cheaper. Total bargain.

    I was expecting hash rate benchmarks 🤣

    not gonna lie, was hoping to see that as well, so prices stay in the "ridiculous" zone (and not the 'mentally-retarded-ridiculous' zone as other cards are now).

    True. If you've got the coin go for it.
    I was just pointing out the fact that GPU manufacturers don't care about the consumer they only care about money and that the idea of 'getting a good deal' is actually a carefully cultivated sales tactic.

    You're a total Mark if you think any company out there gives a crap about the consumer. Every business only cares about money, that's what lets them keep operating.
