Overclocked NVIDIA RTX 4090 GPU achieves 100 TFLOPS performance with 3.15 GHz clock

In 2008 AMD announced the Radeon HD 4850 desktop graphics card with a TDP of 110W, a price tag of $199, 0.5GB of GDDR3 memory, and a GPU frequency of just 625MHz. This was the first 1 TERAFLOP graphics card ever produced. It took 14 years to multiply this achievement by 100.

NVIDIA has now released their RTX 4090 GPU, which can be overclocked and can reach up to 100 TFLOPS. The RTX 4090 is the first graphics card to use 4nm Ada Lovelace architecture and is a powerful 4K gaming card. The card defaults to 450W TDP, although it seems like NVIDIA could have drastically reduced power consumption.

At 300W, performance drops by 9%, but at 350W, it drops by only 6%, according to ComputerBase. However, this is mutual. Numerous media sources have reviewed the RTX 4090 Founders Edition today. It has a power limitation of 600W. With powerful viruses like Furmark, the power consumption can overclock TDP by as much as 496W and even 667W. What if power consumption was unimportant and the goal was to achieve 100 TFLOPS at any cost? This appears to have been remedied by Wccftech, who overclocked their sample to 3150 MHz and completed the AIDA64 GPGPU single-precision calculation test at 100976 TFLOPS.

According to speculation, the RTX 4090 could surpass 100 TFLOPS and usher in a new era of gaming graphics. The only uncertainty left at this point is what plans AMD has for RDNA3. Is comparable performance expected, or will AMD show dominance in alternative metrics? The answer should be out by the end of next month.
