Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU is overclocked to 2.34GHz with record-breaking resultsBy Darren Allan 20 September 2020 Galax’s in-house overclocker shows how it’s done (Image credit: Galax)
Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card has been overclocked by experts to produce some predictably record-breaking results (with exotic cooling – liquid nitrogen – and all manner of tweaking, as you might expect). As Wccftech spotted, Ronaldo Buassali, who is GPU maker Galax’s in-house overclocker (Galax is KFA2 in Europe, by the way), managed to crank a Galax RTX 3080 SG graphics card up to 2340MHz to take the top spot in 3DMark’s Port Royal benchmark with a score of 13,488 points.See more Graphics cards news Article source: https://www.techradar.com/news/nvidia-rtx-3080-gpu-is-overclocked-to-234ghz-with-record-breaking-results

More to comeThe other really interesting point to note is that with these early runs, Buassali was overclocking the GPU, but not the memory – so when the VRAM is also juiced up, we should get even better results from the RTX 3080. Buassali and his team concede that these records will be broken in a short time, with the release of more powerful GPUs – the RTX 3090 is about to be unleashed on September 24, of course – but it’s still interesting to see how the RTX 3080 can step up to the plate right now. The downside to the RTX 3080 is, of course, that you’ll struggle to find any stock to actually be able to buy one , and the same has been predicted of the RTX 3090 by the rumor mill previously. Its hefty price tag seemingly won’t be much of a deterrent to buyers looking at the sales of RTX 3080 graphics cards on eBay , and exactly how much they’re going for when it comes to keen early Nvidia Ampere adopters.
