VideoCardz has shared the first third-party benchmarks for NVIDIA’s 8K “BFGPU,” the GeForce RTX 3090. According to the scores, which were derived from 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme tests, the ultra-flagship is only 19 percent faster on average than the reference-clocked GeForce RTX 3080.

Is that disappointing? That’s what a lot of enthusiasts are saying. Remember, the GeForce RTX 3090 costs a whopping $1,499 (again, don’t think about the auction prices), which is an $800 premium over its mildly lesser sibling, the GeForce RTX 3080. $800 more for a 19 percent increase in performance? That does seem like tough deal to swallow.

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 flaunts 10496 CUDA Cores, a base/boost clock of 1.40/1.70 GHz, and 24 GB of GDDR6X memory. The graphics card will be available to purchase on September 24. Supposedly.
