A new leak suggests that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 will operate at a base clock speed of 2,235 MHz. Boost clocks are set at 2,520 MHz and could go as high as 2,750 MHz.

Over the past few weeks, a steady stream of leaks has emerged about Nvidia's upcoming RTX 4000 series of graphics cards, including the amount of VRAM, CUDA cores and TGP. Unlike last time, when the GeForce RTX 3080 was the first card out of the door, Nvidia is slated to launch the top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 4090 before others. Prolific leaker @kopte7kimi has posted new information about the flagship graphics card.

It seems that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 will operate at a base clock speed of 2,235 MHz, about 60% higher than the GeForce RTX 3090. It can boost up to 2,520 MHz, and even 2,750 MHz under certain workloads. Greymon55 chimes in stating that further improvements are possible, tacitly implying that future models could even cross the 3,000 MHz milestone.

That will likely be reserved for the eventual GeForce RTX 4090 Ti or a SKU using the full AD102 GPU, although some OEMs will undoubtedly tune their high-end RTX 4090 variants to hit 3 GHz. Other Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 specs include 24 GB of 21 Gbps GDDR6X VRAM on a 384-bit bus, 16,384 CUDA cores and a TGP of 450 Watts.
