The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 is up to 60% faster than the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti in terms of rasterization performance, according to an early benchmark published on the Geekbench 5 database that suggests the new Ada Lovelace-powered flagship can reach a CUDA Score of 424,332. NVIDIA has claimed that the GeForce RTX 4090 is twice as fast as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti while using the same amount of power.
From a Wccftech report:
While NVIDIA has been feeding gamers with DLSS 3 and Ray Tracing performance numbers, there’s been little information regarding the rasterization performance of their next-gen parts. Now, we’ve got the first non-DLSS and non-RT benchmark leak out within the Geekbench 5 CUDA database.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, not knowing if this was a reference Founders Edition or a custom AIB design, was tested on an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X CPU platform with 32 GB of DDR5-6000 DRAM. The graphics card offered a maximum reported frequency of around 2.58 GHz. In terms of CUDA performance, the graphics card scored 417713 points. For comparison, the RTX 3090 Ti scores a total of 260,346, and the RTX 3090 scores a total of 238,123 points in the same benchmark. This is a 60% and 75% increase over those graphics cards, respectively.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 will be released on October 12 at a starting price of $1,599.00. Key specifications of the Founders Edition include 16,384 CUDA Cores, a 2.52 GHz boost clock, 24 GB of G6X VRAM, and a graphics card power rating of 450 watts.
