Control could be getting a huge boost in performance courtesy of NVIDIA’s next flagship gaming GPU.
AGF, a self-proclaimed GPU veteran and “hunter of fake leaks,” tweeted the first alleged game metrics for the AD102 today, claiming that the full version of the Ada GPU is capable of running Control at over 160 FPS in 4K with ray tracing and DLSS enabled. Their source claimed that everything was “cranked up to the max,” implying the highest settings, with DLSS set for greater quality.
This is twice as fast as what the GeForce RTX 3090 is capable of, according to benchmarks that have been shared by Wccftech’s Hassan Mujtaba, which show the previous Ampere gaming flagship only reaching 72 FPS on average in Control at similar quality settings with ray tracing enabled.

The exact improvement could be as high as a 2.5x gain, as explained by Mujtaba, although he noted that the DLSS setting hasn’t yet been confirmed:
Compared to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 in the High-Preset using RT and DLSS, we get a score of up to 2.2x so if we were to run the previous flagship in the Ultra-Preset, we are going to get up to a 2.5x gain which is just ridiculously huge. Our benchmark also had the DLSS factor set to the quality preset and we don’t know what the allegedly leaked benchmark had DLSS set to. The quality mode prefers IQ over FPS whereas the performance mode does the opposite and drops the IQ by a bit.
Again, these alleged performance claims relate to the full version of NVIDIA’s AD102 GPU. This version of the GPU will presumably power the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, which is expected to release much later than its standard sibling. The GeForce RTX 4090 has been rumored to launch in October.
