    NVIDIA is yet to let the press reveal the benchmark results of the new RTX 3000 series GPUs, which will be coming by the 16th (17th for India). Now we have some info from Videocardz on the RTX 3080, specifically on its memory overclocking capabilities.

    Both the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 boast immense capability in their memory, with the GDDR6X memory modules in both these GPUs going up to 760 GB/s and 936 GB/s of memory bandwidth. Their performance is scaled up by memory overclocking, increasing the clock speeds of the Micron-manufactured modules, and the tests acquired by Videocardz overclock the memory of the RTX 3080, from its base clock of 19 Gbps rated by NVIDIA, however, the modules themselves are rated at 21 Gbps by Micron themselves.

    The benchmarks run showed a rather incremental gain in benchmark scores, tested on 3DMark. Videocardz reports a rather modest scaling between benchmarks at stock and OC clocks, suggesting that scaling on the RTX 3000 Ampere GPUs with memory overclocking might be rather low. However, this leak has also indicated that the rift between the RTX 3080 and 3090 is smaller than previously anticipated.

    The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 is an upcoming GPU from NVIDIA that boasts 10GB of GDDR6X VRAM, clocked at 19Gbps. It will be offered at an MSRP of $699 or around Rs. 51,500 before taxes in India. It is placed below the $1499 (Rs. 1,11,000) GeForce RTX 3090 which is also due to be released later this month.
