Unless you have been living under a rock this past week, you should be aware that Nvidia officially confirmed the GTX 1080Ti last week, sporting a GP102 GPU core with a claimed 35 percent performance advantage over the standard GTX 1080. Reviewers already have their hands on these cards and are preparing reviews, in the meantime though, leakers have been busy with the first GTX 1080Ti benchmark results popping up online today.
Reviews won’t be live until later this week but it seems that Chiphell has some Firestrike results ahead of time for 1080p, 1440p and 4K performance. However, as Videocardz point out, the GPU in use here is overclocked to around 2GHz on the GPU core, meaning performance will be slightly ahead of a stock GTX 1080Ti.
In standard Fire Strike running at 1080p, the GTX 1080Ti scored 24,550 points. On Fire Strike Extreme, which runs at 2560×1440, the OC’d GTX 1080Ti scored 14,467 points and finally, in Fire Strike Ultra (4K), this card scored 7,535 points. For comparison, a Founder’s Edition GTX 1080 tends to score around 5000 points in Fire Strike Ultra in its stock state.
The only downside here is that Fire Strike is a synthetic benchmark, so we are still unsure just how well this performance will translate into games.
KitGuru Says: Reviews should be with us quite soon so we don’t have long to wait to find out how the GTX 1080Ti will perform in games. That said, you could probably just take a look at some Titan X Pascal results for an educated guess. Are any of you planning on picking up a GTX 1080Ti?
