RTX 4090 may almost double RTX 3090 performance in TimeSpy Extreme

New claims suggest the RTX 4090 is capable of achieving a score of over 19,000 in the TimeSpy Extreme benchmark, nearly doubling the performance of the RTX 3090

An Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card

The GeForce RTX 4090 may be the best graphics card in the upcoming RTX 4000 series, but the company is yet to reveal just how much more powerful it is versus the current flagship Nvidia GPU, the RTX 3090. However, if new TimeSpy Extreme benchmark data fresh from the rumour mill is to be believed, it may almost double its predecessor’s level of performance.

In a Twitter post, hardware leaker kopite7kimi, claims that the RTX 4090 is capable of achieving a score over “19,000” in the TimeSpy Extreme benchmark. However, they unfortunately did not provide any screenshots to prove this, so it’s best to take this news with a degree of scepticism.

This is almost double what a Founders Edition RTX 3090 is capable of, coming in at around 10,000. While these results don’t necessarily indicate how well the RTX 4090 will perform when running the best PC games, it does at the very least give us a glimpse of just how monstrous of a GPU it may be.

The RTX 4090 is reportedly no longer delayed, and so we should see it pop up sometime in October. However, AMD RDNA 3 graphics cards are also due to launch later this year, and the new Radeon flagship could prove stiff competition for the Nvidia GPU.
