In response to a current Chiphell discussion board publish, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 16GB was seen benchmarked in 3DMark TimeSpy whereas overclocked to a formidable 3GHz clock pace. At 3GHz, the chip outperformed Nvidia’s earlier era RTX 3090 Ti (overclocked to 2,200MHz) by 3,500 factors in the identical benchmark.
The RTX 4080 16GB might be seen clocking as much as 3000MHz flat in a GPU-Z screenshot proven within the Chiphell discussion board publish. However most impressively, the 4080 is working on the 3GHz peak whereas sustaining its default energy ranking of 320W, with a peak energy ranking of 333W measured on GPU-Z. Temperatures have been additionally superb at 60C.
That is very totally different from the 3GHz RTX 4090 outcomes we have seen on-line, the place the end-user was compelled to run the GPU at 600W of energy consumption to hit these very excessive clock speeds. If the 4090 16GB 3DMark outcomes are true , it seems to point out us that decrease core rely fashions may have higher overclocking capabilities in comparison with the RTX 4090.
However for now, take this information with a grain of salt for the reason that RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 16GB evaluate embargos haven’t but been lifted. Nonetheless, as soon as we get the playing cards in for testing, we’ll higher perceive how properly these GPUs can actually overclock.
However, general, it seems like Nvidia’s Ada Lovelace structure – working on the TSMC 4N node, does have sufficient headroom to realize a flat 3GHz clock pace, regardless of the SKU. In fact, the silicon lottery might play a job in what number of GPUs obtain 3GHz flat. Nonetheless, we would not be shocked if most RTX 40 collection GPUs can hit this focused frequency primarily based on the outcomes we’re seeing now for the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090.
TimeSpy Rating Evaluation
The RTX 4080 16GB achieved at 28,929 level graphics rating in 3DMark’s TimeSpy benchmark (the non-extreme model). This places it precisely 3,518 factors – or 13.8% forward of the most effective RTX 3090 Ti end result we discovered on 3DMark’s benchmark browser – which options 25,411 factors within the graphics rating, with a hefty overclock of 2265MHz.
Sadly, we have no RTX 4090 TimeSpy outcomes to check towards, so take this end result for what you’ll. Once more, RTX 4090 opinions shall be out quickly, so we’ll have a greater thought of how briskly this 3GHz 4080 is as soon as third social gathering opinions – and our personal evaluate, is out for the 4090.
