Extreme overclocker Ronaldo Buassali achieved the highest-ever 3DMark Time Spy score on a highly overclocked GeForce RTX 3080, managing over 10,000 with a 2.3 GHz core clock.

Ronaldo Buassali, an extreme overclocker working with GALAX scored the highest-ever score in 3DMark Time Spy using a highly overclocked GeForce RTX 3080. The Galax RTX 3080 SG in question hit an incredible 2310 MHz, allowing it to score 10,595 on the benchmark. This is substantially higher than the previous record, held by a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti that ran at a blistering 2.7 GHz. 

What's interesting here is that this score was managed without touching the memory clock at all. The GeForce RTX 3080 features GDDR6X modules that appear to clock quite high, going by early reviews. This means that Buassali's score might not be the pinnacle of what's possible with the GeForce RTX 3080. We'll have to wait and watch.

Of course, the GeForce RTX 3090 is waiting in the wings. We expect NVIDIA's "BFGPU" to dominate synthetic benchmarks when it arrives. With 20 percent more CUDA cores, we might see Time Spy scores that cross the 11K mark for the first time.

I've had a passion for PC gaming since 1996, when I watched my dad score frags in Quake as a 1 year-old. I've gone on to become a Penguin-published author and tech journalist. When I'm not traveling the world, gathering stories for my next book, you can find me tinkering with my PC.
