Average Bench: 444% (1st of 689)

Based on 6,229 user benchmarks.  Device: 10DE 2684 Model: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090

The RTX 4090 is based on Nvidia’s Ada Lovelace architecture. It features 16,384 cores with base / boost clocks of 2.2 / 2.5 GHz, 24 GB of memory, a 384-bit memory bus, 128 3rd gen RT cores, 512 4th gen Tensor cores, DLSS 3 and a TDP of 450W. Performance gains will vary depending on the specific game and resolution. With a 4090 tier card 1080p in-game fps will often get CPU bottlenecked which prevents the GPU from delivering higher fps. At higher (often sub-optimal) resolutions (1440p, 4K etc) the 4090 will show increasing improvements compared to lesser cards. When fps are not CPU bottlenecked at all, such as during GPU benchmarks, the 4090 is around 80% faster than the 3090 and 60% faster than the 3090-Ti, these figures are approximate upper bounds for in-game fps improvements. The fact that the 4090 is currently the fastest performing graphics card available is reflected in its jaw-dropping MSRP of $1,600. Since PC gamers rarely buy AMD GPUs, Nvidia only have themselves to compete with. Surprisingly, $1,600 is actually reasonable value for money compared to previous gen flagship cards. Prospective buyers will need a top of the line system to extract maximum performance from the 4090 and because of its monstrous dimensions, many will also need a new PC case. [Oct '22 GPUPro]

Outstanding average bench

The Nvidia RTX 4090 averaged 343.7% higher than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This is an excellent result which ranks the Nvidia RTX 4090 near the top of the comparison list.

Strengths

Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 554fps
Avg. NBody particle system (Galaxy) 552fps

Terrible consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the Nvidia RTX 4090 is 155%. This is a particularly wide range which indicates that the Nvidia RTX 4090 performs inconsistently under varying real world conditions.

The fastest gpu, but includes a bunch of connector problems when you can lose your entire investment due to burning.

Dude, that graphic card it’s actually more cost effective on a dollar per-frame basis than the RTX 3090 and 3090 Ti. Meant for your future gaming that actually need all that added performance.—Oct '22

The RTX 4090 is Nvidias fastest (currently) Ada Lovelace architecture Gpu featuring 16,384 Cuda cores clocked at 2.23GHZ Baseclock and 2.52GHZ boost clock running on 24gbs of blazing fast GGR6X ram with a 384-bit memory bus and using a whopping 450 watts, you're going to need a pretty beefy PSU. Albeit the price tag starting at $1,600 is a bit menacing, its currently the top performing graphics card available. It also features 3rd gen RT cores, 4th gen TENSOR cores, DLSS 3 and is capable of 8K Gaming. (review until gpu pro does a better one)
