It appears that the first entry of Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 30 series GPU has been spotted. The Geforce RTX 3080 GPU has been listed in the Userbenchmark database. This leak comes via LaptopVideo2Go, and @_rogame.
The alleged entry in the database confirms few things. The SKU is the RTX 3080, having Device ID of 2206, and the GPU clock speed is being mentioned as 2.1 Ghz max, and the card comes with 10GB of VRAM. The memory is clocked at 4750 Mhz, which gives us an effective clock speed of 19 Gbps, though it seems the software is incorrectly reporting the Memory values.
The device ID has been confirmed by @T4CFantasy, who maintains TechPowerup’s GPU database. This new entry has been added to the most recent INF driver file. The Device ID 2206 is codenamed as ‘NVIDIA Graphics Device‘. This is the same way Nvidia lists their upcoming GPUs prior to their official nomenclature.
10GB of VRAM for a high-end card might seem a bit less for today’s standards, but GDDR6X memory is brand new and is likely expensive to manufacture, so we need to wait for the final official specs from Nvidia before concluding anything. We have heard rumors before that the RTX 3090 might get 24GB of VRAM, while the 3080 Ti could have 12GB of frame buffer. It is also possible that Nvidia is readying two different variants of the RTX 3080 GPU, in 10GB and 20GB flavors (based on speculation).
Nvidia is hosting a Geforce Special Event on September 1st, and we expect the company to announce the next-gen Ampere Gaming GPUs.
