The GeForce RTX 4090 appears overclocked to 3.2 GHz

And a memory speed pushed to 25 Gbit/s.

The GeForce RTX 4090, made official last month, will be marketed from next Wednesday. We already know that Ada Lovelace’s flagship – until the arrival of a hypothetical but probable GeForce RTX 4090 Ti – runs at over 500fps in Overwatch 2 at QHD; that the GPU is able to reach 3 GHz (officially, NVIDIA provides a Boost frequency of 2.52 GHz) at the cost of higher consumption (around 600 W). However, according to a post from @wnxod, the overclocking potential of this reference is even higher: its model peaks at just over 3.2 GHz, with a memory frequency of 1562.7 MHz (or a memory speed of 25 Gbit/s).

Unfortunately, as you can see, the information provided is limited to the capture above, which is easily falsifiable. For these frequencies, the author does not give more elements. However, it offers other publications of the same kind: one of a GeForce RTX 4090 operating at 2730 MHz with a consumption of 446.9 W; another where the GPU is running at 3135MHz with a power consumption of 492.8W. more specific context (workload, cooling, overclocking method, etc.).

Available from Wednesday

Going back to VRAM, the GeForce RTX 4090 has 24GB of 21Gbps (1325MHz) GDDR6X on a 384-bit bus, giving it 1TB/s bandwidth. An increase to 1562.7 MHz induces a bandwidth of approximately 1.2 TB/s.

You can get a GeForce RTX 4090 from October 12, starting at 1949 euros. The publication of the tests, including ours, is scheduled the day before.
