NVIDIA RTX 4090 tested in 3DMark

We have some early benchmarks of the upcoming Ada Lovelace flagship gaming card, the RTX 4090.

The leaked benchmark scores feature 3DMark FireStrike Ultra, a DirectX11 benchmark running at 4K resolution, TimeSpy Extreme using DirectX12 API and same resolution, and also Port Royal which is based on a custom engine featuring DirectX Raytracing API.

NVIDIA RTX 4090 is the first and the fastest Ada Lovelace GPU the company is launching this month. This card features an AD102 GPU with 16384 CUDA cores, and 21 Gbps 24GB of GDDR6X memory across a 384-bit interface. NVIDIA released a special driver (521.90) for this card, which is now only available for the tech reviewers.

The RTX 4090 scores 18892 points in FireStrike Ultra, 25256 points in TimeSpy Extreme and 24886 points in Port Royal. All of which are Graphics scores. This is with a card running at reference clocks (2520 MHz and default TDP of 450W). For comparison, we are also including results from an undisclosed factory-overclocked AIB card. Other scores are taken from official 3DMark ranking (average from thousands of entries).

According to these results, the RTX 4090 is at least 82% faster than RTX 3090. Results will vary depending on a setup and board partner design. We have seen higher and lower scores, but these seem to be accurate according to the reviewers that we spoke to.

GeForce RTX 4090/3090 performance uplift:

  • FireStrike Ultra: 2.00x – 2.04x
  • TimeSpy Extreme: 1.84x – 1.89x
  • Port Royal: 1.82x – 1.86x

Synthetic tests are just part of the story. Gaming results will show how powerful RTX 4090 really is at different resolutions and different quality settings. First reviews of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 GPUs will live on October 11th.
