Tipster @_rogame shared what appears to be the very first official UserBenchmark listing for NVIDIA’s upcoming Ampere series GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. The Turing successor ran at a relatively high 2.1 GHz, and featured 19 Gbps GDDR6X memory. 

The actual UserBenchmark results are anomalously low, though this is likely due to issues with the test 455.90 drivers in use. What is interesting, though, is the relatively high core clock speed and confirmation about the tremendous amount of bandwidth enabled by GDDR6X memory. 

2.1 GHz is right at the high end of what Turing parts like the GeForce RTX 2080 can accomplish when overclocked, under optimal cooling. Not all Turing cards manage to hit this clockspeed. Seeing an internal test sample of the GeForce RTX 3080 running at 2.1 GHz is good news because it indicates that stock clocks might go up significantly, meaning higher performance across the Ampere product stack. 

The configuration about GDDR6X is also good news since higher-end Ampere cards like the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be aimed at achieving playable 4K experiences. High resolution are very bandwidth intensive. With close to 1 TB/s of memory bandwidth, the GeForce RTX 3080 should scale better at 4K compared to Turing cards.
