TECH NEWS – Nvidia and AMD are gearing up for the next era of GPU technology, and a recent leak hints at some exciting things to come regarding the clock speed of the RTX 4090.
The prices of graphics cards have dropped significantly, so getting an AMD or Nvidia GPU is no longer as expensive an affair as it used to be. With the next era approaching, there are plenty of rumours and speculations and some exciting information coming out that suggests the upcoming flagship card from the green team could be incredibly fast.
According to industry leaker kopite7kimi, spotted by Videocardz, it’s possible that Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 4090 RTX could have a 2235 MHz base clock speed and 2520 MHz boost clock speed, with the actual gaming clock speed being 2750 MHz.
Given that the RTX 3090 has a 1695 MHz boost clock speed, this means that the upcoming Ada Lovelace hardware could be nearly twice as fast as its flagship predecessor. Obviously, there’s a lot more to a graphics card than clock speed, but it still suggests that we can expect a significant improvement between now and the next generation.
However, it’s important to note that this is just a rumour, and despite Kopite7kimi being known for its hardware leaks, the information provided is not confirmed and should be considered speculation only. Incidentally, this is not the first time something like this has been said about Team Green’s upcoming graphics card. Recently, it was rumoured that the Nvidia RTX 4090 could be more powerful overall than previously thought. Whether or not this proves to be true remains to be seen, but the tech giant has yet to make an official announcement about the Lovelace’s specs.
It seems like the company could use some success stories, as the last Nvidia GTX 1630 proved to be a disappointment.
Built on the Turing architecture from a few generations ago, the 1630 is apparently “severely lacking” when it comes to performance, but from what kopite7kimi has told us, the likes of the RTX 4090 could be impressive.
As AMD prepares to launch RDNA 3, with a possible October release, each will be looking to leave the competition behind as the industry moves ever closer to the next generation of GPUs. In general, Nvidia is just ahead of its biggest rival, so the match is far from over, and it doesn’t seem to pose much of a threat to Intel, which is still struggling to release its long-awaited Arc desktop cards properly.
