NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Super is just a few days away from launch and today we have the first leaked performance figures of the top-end Super, courtesy of a Twitter source. The benchmark is from Oxide’s Ashes of the Singularity, run at 4K using the crazy graphics preset. The RTX 2080 Super scores 6,500 points, putting it slightly ahead of the RTX 2080 (6,000 pts), but at the same time lagging behind the $999 RTX 2080 Ti (7,500 pts).
As per these stats, the 2080 Super is less than 10% faster than the original RTX 2080 and around 15% slower than the RTX flagship, the RTX 2080 Ti. This is inline with NVIDIA’s official claim that the 2080 Super will be 5% faster than the vanilla 2080 while being $100 cheaper @ $699.
There’s another piece of news that I believe you’d be interested in. Remember those OpenCL Geekbench scores where the Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs trounced their RTX competitors? Yeah, turns out it was due to a bug which caused Geekbench to overestimate performance on AMD and Intel GPUs with OpenCL Particle Physics. To resolve this issue, it’s recommended to use version 4.4.0, as performance results with version 4.3 were not accurate. You can read the details here.
