At the GTC 2022 "GeForce Beyond" special event half a month ago, NVIDIA officially launched the RTX 40 series graphics cards of the Ada Lovelace architecture, including the RTX 4090 24G, RTX 4080 16G, and RTX 4080 12G.
Recently, a foreign media VideoCardz exposed an early 3DMark benchmark for the RTX 4090 graphics card. The leaked benchmark scores include 3DMark FireStrike Ultra, a DirectX11 benchmark running at 4K resolution, and TimeSpy using the DirectX12 API and the same resolution. Extreme, and Port Royal based on a custom engine with DirectX Raytracing API.
The RTX 4090 graphics card with 76 billion transistors, 16,384 CUDA cores and 24GB of GDDR6X memory scored 25,256 points in FireStrike Ultra, 18,892 points in TimeSpy Extreme, and 24,886 points in Port Royal. All of these are graphics scores and are running at a boost frequency of 2520 MHz and a default TDP of 450W.
For comparison, VideoCardz provides an undisclosed score for an overclocked AIB manufacturer's graphics card, with other scores from the official 3DMark rankings:
The specific performance improvements of the GeForce RTX 4090 over the RTX 3090 are as follows:
In Time Spy Extreme, RTX 4090 is 2.00-2.04 times stronger than RTX 3090
In Fire Strike Ultra, RTX 4090 is 1.84-1.89 times stronger than RTX 3090
In Port Royal (DXR), RTX 4090 is 1.82-1.86 times stronger than RTX 3090
In addition, some netizens have exposed the first benchmark test results of the RTX 4080 16GB graphics card. Compared with the previous generation RTX 3080 in the 3DMark test, there is no small performance improvement, and even the leaked 3DMark and game benchmark test results have already surpassed the RTX 3090Ti. 24GB.
In terms of synthetic benchmarks, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB scored 13,977 points in the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme, 17,465 points in the 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra, and 17,607 points in the 3DMark Port Royal benchmark.
In comparison, a heavy overclocking non -public version of RTX 3090TI is 11643 points in Time SPY EXTREME, 13,554 points in Fire Strike Ultra, and 15,124 points in Port Royal.
The specific performance improvements of GeForce RTX 4080 16GB compared to RTX 3090 Ti 24GB are as follows:
In Time Spy Extreme, RTX 4080 16GB is 20% stronger than RTX 3090 Ti 24GB
In Fire Strike Ultra, the RTX 4080 16GB is 29% stronger than the RTX 3090 Ti 24GB
RTX 4080 16GB is 16% better than RTX 3090 Ti 24GB in Port Royal (DXR)
