There has been no official statement from Nvidia stating that they’re about to release a new line of GPUs soon and the CEO Jen-Hsun Huang also stated that they wouldn’t be launching new GPUs “For a long time”. However, with Lenovo talking about Nvidia’s 11xx series and now a leak of a GTX 2080 Ti’s benchmark score, we can only imagine that they’re right around the corner.
This new leak comes in the form of a GPU Benchmark score from the Ashes of the Singularity Benchmark database. The benchmark was posted by a user named “Nagato” who barely has any hours in the game which leads us to believe that their sole purpose is to benchmark hardware using that game. Along with the GTX 2080 Ti, the system has a 7700k which is quite a strong CPU. If you look closely at the name of the GPU though, you’ll notice that it says “special supply for GSS”. GSS is the abbreviation of GRUS Spatial Solver which is a novel sparse direct solver that runs CPU/GPU compute simultaneously as reported by wccftech .
Onto the benchmarks now. From what we can see there isn’t anything exciting or crazy about this GPU since the scores are on par with the GTX 1070 and the GXT 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti. But the scores can help us figure out why that’s the case. On the DX11 API, the performance on Low Settings(1080p) and Crazy(1080p) is almost identical. Even with the Vulkan API, there isn’t much of a difference. This can be attributed to the fact that driver optimization is in its early stages so hopefully with time we will see its true power. Or this could all be a big fake. Only time will tell us how good the next line of GPUs will be from Nvidia until then, stay tuned for more news related to the new GPUs from Nvidia.
