New speculation about Nvidia’s future Ada generation includes information about the clock rates of the flagship GeForce RTX 4090. Based on this, Ada would have a much higher frequency than the current Ampere series.
First of all, however, it should be mentioned that recently the previously reliable kopite7kimi very often informed about the change of specifications. And even if these may not be final, they probably won’t fundamentally change. In other words, new rumors should be treated with great caution.
Clock speeds are initially only available for the expected GeForce RTX 4090. Based on this, the base clock should be 2235 MHz and the boost clock 2520 MHz. If you assume Nvidia doesn’t suddenly calculate clock rates differently, the rates are significantly higher than the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti ( test), which is specified at 1560 MHz and 1860 MHz.
3 GHz is within reach with Ada
As is well known, GeForce graphics cards can also run even faster than the boost spec. And that should also be the case with the GeForce RTX 4090. More than 2,750 MHz should be possible, but it is unclear whether this also applies in the factory state. Regardless, Nvidia will take a big step forward in clock speeds with Ada, which is not surprising given the significantly higher clock speeds in AMD’s competing RDNA 2 models, and RDNA 3 will clock even higher.
Other than that, there is little news to report or rumors go around in circles. The GeForce RTX 4090 is said to be the flagship model with 16 384 FP32 ALUs, 24 GB of GDDR6X memory on a 384-bit interface with 21 Gbps data throughput and a TDP of 450 watts. The GeForce RTX 4080 shall feature 10240 ALUs, 256-bit, 16 GB GDDR6X with 21 Gbps at 420 Watts. The significantly reduced number of shader units in combination with the slightly lower power consumption indicates that the GeForce RTX 4080 will likely be clocked much higher than the GeForce RTX 4090.
RTX 4070 reportedly with similar performance to the RTX 3090 Ti
The GeForce RTX 4070 is said to have 7168 ALUs and a 160-bit memory interface with fast 18Gbps GDDR6 memory with a total capacity of 10GB. The TDP is given as 300 watts. the leaker Kepler In the meantime, you want to know if the GeForce RTX 4070 should have comparable performance to the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. However, there is no more detailed information about this, so it is difficult to classify it.
The GeForce RTX 4090 is said to launch in October, followed by the GeForce RTX 4080 in November and the GeForce RTX 4070 in December. According to current speculation, the competing RDNA-3 generation could also launch in October.
