NVIDIA RTX 4090 at 600W and 3.0 GHz

NVIDIA’s new flagship GPU has now been spotted running at 3.0 GHz, and that’s with GPU stress tool. 

The RTX 4090 featuring NVIDIA’s newest Ada Lovelace architecture can easily run at very high clocks, much higher than previous architecture. NVIDIA themselves have already shown the card running at 2.85 GHz at ease and that was at stock.

With little effort gamers and overclockers, can achieve much higher clocks, 3.0 GHz during stress testing with Kombustor or even 3.1 GHz during lighter workload, however 3.0 GHz appears to be in range for most high-end GPUs.

According to the screenshots posted on Bilibili, the RTX 4090 can run at 3.0 GHz and 425.6W or at 2.64 GHz and 615.8W. Both results are extreme for any GPU, but as shown, clearly achievable with RTX 4090. It looks like the leaker used MSI Kombustor for both tests. The 3.0 GHz clock was performed with the default test called “msi-01” and 616W was recorded workload called “Furmark-donut”. The latter is much more power hungry.

The only thing that was not shown were GPU temperature and memory hot spots, as explained by the leaker, this was on purpose.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 has a default TDP of 450W, which is a default configuration for most custom models as well. However, the vast majority of cards will also feature ‘OC’ or ‘Gaming’ configurations, with TDP going well beyond 500W. Furthermore, GPUs such as Founder Edition reportedly has a power limit up to 600W, which may explain what card was used for this test.
