NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card reportedly delivers over 160 FPS in control of RT and DLSS at 4K, 2x performance boost over RTX 3090

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card reportedly delivers over 160 FPS in control of RT and DLSS at 4K, 2x performance boost over RTX 3090

After the first synthetic result was shared, an alleged gaming performance result of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card has now been revealed which shows a 2.2x gain compared to the RTX 3090 with Raytracing and DLSS enabled at 4K resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card over twice as fast as RTX 3090 in Raytracing and DLSS enabled at 4K resolution, reportedly

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card will be the green team’s flagship offering for 2022. There have been various leaks and rumors around the card throughout the year, but from what we can tell, the launch is more or less expected around Q4 2022. With 3-4 months left of launch, rumors are now shifting focus from specifications to performance figures.

While we heard about an alleged synthetic performance benchmark for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, which scored almost 2x the performance gain in the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmark, an alleged gaming benchmark has now been shared by @XpeaGPU which says that the graphics card is being tested, and delivers over 160+ FPS in Control at Ultra (RT + DLSS) in 4K. The specific model being tested is reported as an “AD102 High-Power Draw” variant which may indicate that it is an overclocked model.

Compared to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 in 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 Ultra-Preset, we’ll get up to a 2, 5 x win that is just ridiculously big. Our benchmark also had the DLSS factor set to preset quality, and we do not know what the allegedly leaked reference DLSS had set. The quality mode prefers IQ over FPS, while the performance mode does the opposite and reduces the IQ slightly.

So it looks like you’re looking at anything from 2x to 50% higher performance for the RTX 4090 depending on the DLSS version used for the alleged benchmark.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 was expected to deliver 2-2.5 x performance enhancement, but it was expected only in synthetic benchmarks. If the performance in games is also close to these numbers, Ada Lovelace could be one of the biggest performance jumps from the green team we have seen to date. Overall, if this result is true, enthusiast players are definitely in for a treat with 4K games over 100 FPS becoming a reality.

In similar news, Kopite7kimi states that an AIB model of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card can reach 20,000 points in the same 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmark. It will be a simple 2x gain compared to the RTX 3090 Ti and a jump of 70-80% over the RTX 3090 Ti graphics card, which is the flagship of today’s generation.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 ‘Reputable’ Specifications

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX RTX 4090 graphics card is expected to be powered by the top AD102-300 GPU, but only the ‘Ti’ variant will contain the entire chip. The GeForce RTX 4090 will use a slightly reduced configuration.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 will use 128 SMs out of the 144 SMs for a total of 16,384 CUDA cores. The GPU comes packed with 96 MB L2 cache and a total of 384 ROPs which is simply insane. The clock speeds have not been confirmed yet, but considering that the TSMC 4N process is used, we expect the clocks to hit or even exceed the 3.0 GHz range. The core number is an increase of 56% compared to RTX 3090, so many things such as watches, cache, architecture and various other technologies push up performance by such a large margin.

In terms of memory specifications, the GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to rock 24 GB of GDDR6X capacity that will be clocked at 21 Gbps speeds over a 384-bit bus interface. This will provide up to 1 TB / s bandwidth. This is the same bandwidth as the existing RTX 3090 Ti graphics card, and in terms of power consumption, TBP is said to be rated at 450W which means that TGP can end up lower than that. The card will be powered by a single 16-pin connector that delivers up to 600W of power. It is likely that we can get 500W + custom designs as we saw with RTX 3090 Ti.

The graphics card is expected to be launched in October 2022 and will be followed by the rest of the Ada Lovelace GPU-powered series of graphics cards.
