New Leak Suggests Nvidia Rtx 4090 Gpu Is Twice As Fast As Rtx 3090

New leak suggests Nvidia RTX 4090 GPU is twice as fast as RTX 3090

(Epitome credit: Future)

Nvidia’s RTX 4090, if that’south what the next-gen Lovelace flagship graphics card ends up being chosen, could be twice as fast as the RTX 3090, and likely speedier than that, going by a fresh leak.

This comes from Kopite7kimi, a prolific leaker on Twitter, who tweeted somewhat cryptically about next-gen functioning relating to the RTX 3090.

Clearly, the proposition is that the RTX 4090, the successor to the 3090, will be at to the lowest degree twice as fast, and going by the phrasing here, probably speedier than that – or that’southward the way we read this, anyway. If it’s ‘quite simple’ to double upwardly performance of the flagship, and then nosotros could perchance expect more than that from Nvidia (with ‘further optimization’ certainly).

Of course, any leak must be taken with caution, and that’s peculiarly true with a vague hint like this.

to again assert that the specs for the RTX 4090 that were previously shared are still theoretically correct, namely that it’ll utilise 24GB of GDDR6X video RAM running at 21Gbps, with a power consumption of 600W. Furthermore, the leaker added that the RTX 4070 will apply 12GB of GDDR6 running at 18Gbps, with a 300W power usage (once again, non new info, salve for the speed of the VRAM).

Analysis: Performance aplenty, but at what cost?

Nvidia’s RTX 4090 being twice as fast every bit the 3090, or even speedier than that, does line upwards with broad assertions that accept floated downwards from the rumor factory in the past. We presume this is talking about rasterization (standard rendering) rather than ray tracing performance, of class, but that isn’t antiseptic.

The price to pay for this kind of operation will purportedly be heavy in terms of power consumption, though, and we shudder to think what kind of PSU will be needed to safely drive a beefy GPU that demands 600W (remember, the RTX 3090 guzzles a lot less than that, even if it’s hardly eco-friendly at 350W).

Naturally, the kind of people who are looking at buying an Nvidia flagship are hardly going to be short of money – the things toll a fortune anyway – just the possibility of having to fork out for a plush mega-chunky power supply on peak of the GPU is inappreciably going to exist welcome (neither is the hassle of the PSU upgrade therein).

Especially non if AMD’south adjacent-gen RDNA iii models cease up existence much more ability-efficient, equally the rumor mill believes, while even so delivering a big bound in operation (though ray tracing might exist a dissimilar matter from traditional rasterization in the AMD vs Nvidia frame rate battlefield).

All of this is firmly in the territory of speculation and guesswork, naturally, then let’southward not get carried away with whatever of these assumptions or rumors hither. That said, earlier the original message, Kopite7kimi did tweet

to only say “things became interesting”, so that’s another hint that something major is unfolding for Team Greenish…
