The famous leakster for NVIDIA’s hardware is back again with more benchmark results of the flagship Ada GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card. In the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme in Graphics test, the card has managed to secure higher than 19,000 points.

We can do a quick comparison study of the three different xx90 SKUs’ flagship parts from both the Ada and Ampere generation. This suggests that the RTX 4090 is going to 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 entirety of the performance.
Considering this was at 4K resolution (using the Extreme preset), this seems to be a huge improvement, but the possibility remains that the card might show different results in terms of performance within different results. It remains unclear how exactly the raytracing performance of the RTX 40 series is going to turn out.
We have only heard of a few specs on the RTX 4090 and that too through various rumor channels. We know that it will feature a total of 16384 CUDA cores, which is 52% more than the count on the RTX 3090 Ti. We know that this core count has contributed in making the next flagship ever faster, and there might be many such variables.
Considering that the new graphics card series is more than likely to be launched in the fourth quarter, it appears that the RTX 4090 has been tested earlier than usual. We are also wondering about the current state of the drivers since NVIDIA mostly rolls out re-launch drivers which are there to prevent leaks.
