NVIDIA RTX 4090 2.85 GHz at stock, less power use with DLSS3

At yesterday’s NVIDIA Editors Day for RTX 40 series, the company demonstrated its RTX 4090 graphics card in a short gameplay demo. Wccftech, who took part in this press briefing, posted screenshots and videos of what that was shown. 

NVIDIA is not leaving any detail behind. Following the announcement of the new RTX 40 “Ada” series, the company is disclosing new details. The gameplay demo that was shown yesterday to a closed group of journalists is not embargoed, which means that NVIDIA intended this information to come out as soon as possible.

In Cyberpunk 2077 DLSS3 demo, the RTX 4090 GPU has been shown with on-screen GPU metrics displayed. Interestingly, the OSD also shows the GPU clock speed, which is NVIDIA’s first admission to what is the ‘actual’ clock of the RTX 4090 GPU. And it is higher than ‘official’ boost clock, indeed. The card has been shown running with 2800 – 2850 MHz GPU clock, which is around 300 MHz higher than official boost spec (2520 MHz).

NVIDIA CEO has been hinting that the RTX 4090 has already been seen running 3.0 GHz clocks during internal overclocking tests, but we are yet to see if that’s true. However, if the clock speed is already at 2.85 GHz with stock settings, then the CEO’s claims are probably not far from the truth.

Furthermore, the demo that featured Cyberpunk 2077 at 1440p resolution with NVIDIA’s latest DLSS3 upscaling technology. This game is among the 35 titles mentioned by NVIDIA that will get a patch with DLSS3 support. Not only does this technology boost framerate from 60 to 171 FPS, but it also reduces GPU power by more than 100W:

Those are indeed very fascinating results, but it may still be too early to call this technology a win. Reviewers will have a chance to verify those claims very soon, as NVIDIA ships the samples next week.
