Leak details enormous performance gains of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 compared to the RTX 2080 Ti
Leaker @CyberCatPunk has shared two alleged slides from NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 30 series presentation, which is scheduled for tomorrow. The images appear to originate from an account called @yuten0x and have been circulated by @CyberCatPunk. The latter insists that the images are authentic, but other leakers and Twitter accounts doubt the veracity of the supposed slides. Hence, we would err on the side of caution for the time being, although the performance improvements presented seem more realistic than those suggested by Moore's Law Is Dead in July.
One image paints the RTX 3090 as having 24 GB of VRAM clocked at 19.5 Gbps, along with 5,248 CUDA cores. The second image shows three benchmarks comparing the RTX 3090 to the RTX 2080 Ti, NVIDIA's current premier GeForce graphics card.
The image does not state what resolution was used, but the inclusion of the phrase "Ultra Settings" suggests that it is 4K. Additionally, RTX was enabled, which is short for Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). Apparently, the RTX 3090 will be over 2x faster than the RTX 2080 Ti in Control, 2x faster in Minecraft RTX and around 1.75x faster in Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
Rumour has it that NVIDIA will also launch the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 tomorrow, so we should see some decent performance improvements from these cards compared to the current crop of RTX cards. It remains to be seen whether these images hold water, but tomorrow's GeForce Special Event will be a memorable one, at any rate.
