The famous NVIDIA hardware leakster is back with more benchmark results from the flagship Ada GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card. In the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme in Graphics test, the card achieved more than 19,000 points.

We can do a quick comparison of the three different flagship parts of the xx90 SKUs from both the Ada and Ampere generations. This suggests that the RTX 4090 will be 66% faster than the RTX 3090 Ti and 82% faster than the RTX 3090 in this benchmark. However, let’s keep in mind that this is just one synthetic benchmark and it clearly doesn’t reveal the whole of performance.
Since this was a 4K resolution (using the Extreme preset), this seems like a huge improvement, but the possibility remains that the card will show different results in terms of performance within different results. It remains unclear how exactly the ray tracing performance of the RTX 40 series will turn out.
We’ve only heard of a few specs of the RTX 4090 and that too through various rumor channels. We know it will have a total of 16384 CUDA cores, which is 52% more than the number on the RTX 3090 Ti. We know that this number of cores has helped make the next flagship ever faster, and there could be many such variables.
Since the new line of graphics cards is more than likely to be launched in the fourth quarter, it seems that the RTX 4090 has been tested earlier than usual. We also wonder about the current state of the drivers as NVIDIA usually rolls out reboot drivers that are there to prevent leaks.
