The GeForce RTX 3080, which is the current performance king of graphics cards, is also a stud in overclocking. The Ampere-powered graphics card (via Wccftech) has set new world recorlds in 3DMark’s Time Spy and Port Royal benchmark.

Brazilian overclocking legend Ronaldo “Rbuass” Buassali pushed his Galax GeForce RTX 3080 SG to 2,340 MHz to secure the first place on the Port Royal leaderboard. Time Spy is a bit more demanding so the avid overclocker dropped the GPU core clock to 2,130 MHz. Nevertheless, it was fast enough to allow Buassali to set a new world record in Time Spy as well. Interestingly, the GeForce RTX 3080’s memory remained untouched in both runs so when Buassali gets around to overclocking it, the scores should improve.
