Nvidia should be announcing their latest flagship consumer grade level GPU tomorrow. Based on the new Pascal architecture, the next generation GTX1080 has brought about much anticipation in gamers.
According to VideoCardz, the upcoming GTX1080 performance benchmarks have already been leaked online. Running the 3DMark 11 Performance benchmark, GTX1080 is said to be around 25% faster than its predecessor.
In terms of specifications, GTX1080 is manufactured with a 16nm process and is based on the new Pascal architecture. In the benchmark test, the graphics card was able to reach a Boost frequency of whooping 1.8GHz. It holds 8GB of DDR5X VRAM on board and has a memory bandwidth of 320GB/s.
It should be noted that the leaked benchmark has yet to be verified by nVidia. The GTX 1080 achieved a score of 27,683 on 3DMark 11 Performance and 10102 on 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme. It is possible that these cards have already been overclocked. Nonetheless, the truth will be revealed tomorrow.
