RTX 4090 real-world clock speed was finally revealed and it is faster than what we have initially expected. In a live demo video, DLSS 3 performance was also revealed.
RTX 4090 Real-World Clock Speed Finally Revealed
Nvidia is all set to be shipping the RTX 4090 very soon. That being said, we are all but naturally very excited to get our hands on it and to also find out whether or not it justifies its heavy price tag. However in the meantime, the company was gracious enough to treat users to some of its test footage of the Cyberpunk 2077 running on the newly revealed GPU, and specifically to show off the new power of the DLSS 3.
The Demo Video Was Run At 1400p Resolution
The demo video was run at 1400p resolution and maximum graphical settings with ultra-ray Tracing were also turned on, and Nvidia displayed some active GPU metrics on the screen during its showcase. The metrics revealed showed a couple of facts about just how well the RTX 4090 was running the game.
The first and also potentially the most interesting piece of information that was gotten from all this is that the RTX 4090 was running at boost clocks as high as 2,850MHz, which is well 330Hz much higher than the original official boost clock of 2,520MHz reported. Nvidia previously mentioned that the GPU got over 3,000MHz when overclocked during internal tests. So this is really shocking, but it is however really good to see the card running at a very strong overclock.
RTX 4090 Ran Cyberpunk 2077 at an Average Framerate
And in terms of actual performance in-game, the RTX 4090 ran Cyberpunk 2077 at an average framerate which is just shy of 60fps when making use of a native resolution and with DLSS 3 turned off. And turning on DLSS 3 in the quality preset gave out a big performance leap thus taking the average framerate up to 171fps and lowering power consumption by over 110W.
Considering, that is a really huge performance-per-watt improvement, which is good to see given that the new RTX GPUs are power-hungry components, fairly to say. This goes way beyond framerates also, thus enabling Nvidia’s third-generation upscaling tech lowered also the average latency by 29%, and slightly also lowered the maximum operating temperature of the card, which is placed between 50C and 53C during the DLSS3 demo.
