The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 can reach 20,192 points in 3DMark Time Spy Extreme, according to an alleged benchmark for the upcoming flagship graphics card shared by a Chiphell forum user and spotted by HXL. That score supposedly makes the GPU 78% faster than the current flagship, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, and 90% faster than its standard sibling, the GeForce RTX 3090. One screenshot even suggests that the GeForce RTX 4090 can hit clocks as high as 3.0 Ghz.

From Chiphell (via VideoCardz):

According to the person, the GPU was tested in 30°C ambient temperature while GPU temperature was oscillating around 65°C (but we can see it went big higher). The leaker claims that the graphics card is air-cooled and it is huge. It looks to be designed for 600W to 800W but the TDP is 450W. This suggests this might indeed be GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, which is rumored to feature such board power.

“The temperature at the time of silent frequency running is 30 degrees at room temperature. This card is air-cooled, and the radiator is very large. It is estimated that the middle tower may not be able to fit, and it is impossible to take pictures. It looks like this is designed to look like 600-800w, but the default tdp is very low and only 450w, it is estimated that non-guild will have 800w version.”

NVIDIA is expected to announce the GeForce RTX 40 Series during its GeForce Beyond event, which is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20.

  1. Maybe it hits 3ghz for 5 minutes under LN2? Or maybe they pulled a pentium 4 style trick with it and lowered the IPC? I find clockspeed mostly meaningless at this point.
  2. I find clockspeed mostly meaningless at this point.
    I agree, it's an entire dynamic target any more. Peak clock speed is pretty meaningless. Sustained performance is all that really matters, and that's going to be a function of architecture, power delivery and cooling. Illustrating that is hard to do on the side of the box though, so we continue to get the marketing "Ghz" number.
  3. So ... their GPU is about as fast as an eleven year old CPU? My i7-3930k does 3.2 GHz without turbo. Not sure their marketing message was received as intended.

    ... and yes, I know the difference between a CPU and a GPU.
