We have a very typical rumor about the alleged performance of the RTX 3090 with us today. A few credible speakers on Twitter have noted that the performance of the upcoming NVIDIA RTX 3090 will increase by up to 50% over the RTX 2080 Ti. According to the same, they expect the score in the Time Spy Extreme benchmark to be close to 10,000 points. It is worth noting that a generous amount of salt is imperative with this rumor delicacy.
NVIDIA RTX 3090 is said to score close to 10,000 points in the Time Spy Extreme benchmark
While the speakers in question are very reliable and are people who have successfully leaked the specifications and nomenclature of NVIDIA’s upcoming graphics cards, they themselves have stated that this is not yet concrete. The final clocks have not yet been decided, but it is expected that an increase of 50% cannot be ruled out! This will be a huge performance boost likely to be driven not only by the shrinkage of the node, but also by some impressive architectural upgrades.
It’s true. Nearly 10,000 pts.

This means a score of over 9000! I violate the editorial policy by adding GIFs, but I think it would be a criminal offense not to include this:]
An NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti for reference scores about 6300 points in Time Spy Extreme and a 50% increase above this amount would be 9450 points. If the card has * some * overclocking space, we would expect overclockers to break the 10,000 point mark within days of sending the GPUs to customers. Of course, NVIDIA can also decide to deal with very conservative clocks, so it is advisable not to get too excited at this stage (until the last clocks are confirmed).
As for the leaks, it seems that NVIDIA is all set to keep the title of performance king and AMD’s big Navi (according to leaks) will be slightly faster than an RTX 2080 Ti (although in typical AMD fashion would be surprisingly affordable must be) . It’s worth noting that at this performance level, we may be able to hit the coveted 4K90 standard for VR headsets. For example, the HP Reverb G2 has a resolution nearly 2.5x from Oculus Quest and this card could do that like a champ.
The veil design of NVIDIA’s upcoming series also leaked from a validation line a while ago, and the company will be using some really cool-looking aesthetics (if they choose to go with it). The introduction of an RTX 3090 is also new, and we expect some of the company’s efforts to differentiate its flagship from its usual successors. It remains to be seen how much NVIDIA will charge for this. If this is based on older Turing prices, it will cost an arm and a leg, but we feel that based on past experiences with RTX 2000 series cards and Jensen’s love for record quarters, they would can decide to make it (relatively) cheaper.
