The first benchmarks of NVIDIA’s ultra-enthusiast GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card have leaked out over at Videocardz. Featured in several 3DMark synthetic workloads, the GeForce RTX 3090 seems to be the best upgrade path for existing RTX 2080 Ti owners who are looking to get faster graphics performance.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Graphics Card Benchmarks Leak Out – Around 20% Faster Than The RTX 3080 and Up To 50% Faster Than The RTX 2080 Ti in 3DMark
According to the leaked benchmarks, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX is going to be an insanely fast card. The leak shows the tests within 3DMark Time Spy, Port Royal, and Firestrike benchmarks and a few overclocking numbers. As per the leak, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 easily tops 10,300 points in the Time Spy Extreme and 20,000 points in the Time Spy (Performance) benchmarks. This is up to 20% faster than the GeForce RTX 3080 and up to 50% faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti which makes up for impressive gen on gen performance increase.

In addition to the standard benchmarks which were run at stock clocks, a member of Overclock.net forums who goes by Vmanuelgm, has got hands on the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3090 Gaming OC & proceeded to shunt mod it. With the mod, the user claims that the power consumption increased from 390W to 550W. The user also posted some benchmarks of the card with the increased power limit that could be seen below.
It looks like with the mod, the user gained a 7% performance increase but you also have to take into account the 41% increase in power consumption which is literally insane. It remains to be seen just how much of an overclock the card can manage within its 390W TGP. The GeForce RTX 3090 is an insane graphics card but those who can’t afford the massive price could invest in an RTX 3080 or wait to see what the competition has to offer next month.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Graphics Card Specifications
The RTX 3090 features some insane specifications such as 82 SM units which results in a total of 10496 CUDA cores. In addition to the CUDA cores, the card also comes packed with next-gen RT (Ray-Tracing) cores, Tensor cores, and brand new SM or streaming multi-processor units. The card has a base clock of 1400 MHz and a boost clock of 1700 MHz with a TDP of 350W.
In terms of memory, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 comes packed with 24 GB of memory and that too the next-generation GDDR6X design. With Micron’s latest and greatest graphics memory dies, the RTX 3080 can deliver GDDR6X memory speeds of 19.5 Gbps. That along with a bus interface of 384-bit will deliver a cumulative bandwidth of 936 Gbps.
