NVIDIA’s next flagship graphics card is going to offer a pretty astonishing level of performance that blows away the current flagship.
That’s what prominent leaker kopite7kimi has suggested, anyway, having shared today what is alleged to be the first benchmark score for the GeForce RTX 4090. The Ada-based graphics card has supposedly scored 19,000 points in Time Spy Extreme, 3DMark’s 4K DirectX 12 benchmark test.

Scores rounded up by VideoCardz suggest that the GeForce RTX 4090 could be over 60% faster than the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. The GeForce RTX 4090’s alleged 3DMark Time Spy Extreme score also implies that the graphics card is over 80% faster than the GeForce RTX 3090, although there are some finer points to be made.
A quick comparison between three xx90 SKUs flagship parts from Ampere and Ada generation suggests that RTX 4090 would be 66% faster than RTX 3090 Ti and 82% faster than RTX 3090 in this one benchmark alone.
However, just one synthetic benchmark does not tell us the full story. Although it is a massive improvement at 4K resolution (used by Extreme preset), the card may perform different in other benchmarks. For starters, we still do not know anything about RTX 40 series raytracing performance.
NVIDIA is rumored to launch its GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card in October, the GeForce RTX 4080 in November, and the GeForce RTX 4070 in December. The GeForce RTX 4060 will supposedly be unveiled at CES 2023.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 is rumored to feature 16,384 CUDA cores, a significant increase over the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti’s specification. That card features 10,752 CUDA cores.
