GTX 1080 CompuBench Results Released

With just half a week till the rumoured NDA deadline, more GTX 1080 results are coming out. Using the latest Pascal architecture and GP104 die, the Nvidia GPU has been touted to blow past the Titan X and GTX 980Ti. From leaked 3DMark benchmarks, we already know that the GTX 1080 is very impressive, especially when overclocked. Now, we’re getting scores from CompuBench to give more well-rounded performance profile.

Interestingly, under OpenCL, the GTX 1080 doesn’t do quite as well as we would expect. In T-Rex, Video Composition, and Particle Simulation – 64k, the GTX 1080 is pretty much neck and neck with the 980Ti.  Face Detection, TV-L1 Optical Flow and Bitcoin Mining see some nice gains but mostly fall around the 25% mark. This suggests that Pascal likely won’t see many gains except for in select areas and that OpenCL support isn’t quite ready yet for Pascal.

Given that fact that we don’t know which driver revision is being used, we can’t read too much into the results just yet. Nonetheless, it looks like the GTX 1080, being a GeForce card, won’t be well suited at certain compute workloads despite the theoretical increase in TFLOPs. For those planning on semi-professional workloads, this is will be a disappointment. With only several days to go, I can’t wait to see how the GTX 1080 will actually perform in real-world games.
