What appears to be the first Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 has leaked courtesy of a 3DMark benchmark run discovered by Twitter user TUM APISAK. The sole 3DMark Time Spy benchmark was performed using a custom Zotac graphics card with almost exactly the same specs as the reference RTX 2070 model.

The Time Spy benchmark is designed to test DirectX 12 performance. The GeForce RTX 2070 was paired with an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU clocked at 3.7 GHz. In the benchmark results, the GeForce RTX 2070 has a boost clock speed of 1950 MHz, compared to 1710 MHz on the Founders Edition RTX 2070.

As for the results, the Zotac RTX 2070 GPU clocks in with a score of 8,151, making it slightly faster than the previous-gen GeForce GTX 1080 (~7500). Considering the overclock at play here, the GeForce RTX 2070 looks to be roughly equal to the GTX 1080, or perhaps a little faster.

In terms of how this stacks up to the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, the benchmarker has previously tested those GPUs and scored 9,266 and 10,850 respectively.

It’s a decent outing for the GeForce RTX 2070, although only one benchmark on which to gauge this performance. The one wrinkle, of course, is price. A GeForce RTX 2070 pre-order will set you back almost as much as a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti right now, and yet its benchmark performance comes in at around the same level as a GeForce GTX 1080.

The GeForce RTX 2070 is due to launch worldwide from October 17th. As it currently stands it will be the cheapest available graphics card that supports real-time ray tracing.

What are your thoughts on the Timespy benchmark results? Is the GeForce RTX 2070 going to be worth buying for raytracing and DLSS, or is the GTX 1080 Ti a better buy? Let us know!
