The GALAX GeForce RTX 3090 HOF hits 3 GHz and breaks no less than 16 world records
Before getting all excited about your future build, please take into account the fact that GALAX GeForce RTX 3090 HOF video cards have prices that go above the US$3,000 mark (as you can see here on eBay, be sure to take a closer look at the description, what you will see first is the preorder reservation price!), depending on the model (no less than six will be available worldwide). These being said, the topic at hand is clear: the extreme overclockers who received the new cards have managed to push them from a base clock of 1.39 GHz all the way up to 3 GHz.
The aforementioned performance was obviously accomplished using cooling solutions that cannot be reproduced by home users for their regular gaming sessions. However, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti-based cards needed around two years to hit 3 GHz even with the help of liquid nitrogen cooling, so we might see the RTX 3090 reaching at least to 3.5 GHz before the end of the year.
As it can be easily noticed below, the list of 16 world records that have been broken by the GALAX GeForce RTX 3090 HOF includes both single and dual GPU tests from popular suites such as GPUPi, 3DMark, and Unigine Superposition. However, it should also be highlighted that the frequency in tests that involved complex computational tasks was around 2.8 GHz.
