Test Setup

Any chance we get to revisit our test suite and revise it is going to be one we take. Some of our gaming benchmarks have become a little bit long in the tooth, so today we’re making wholesale changes. Naturally some titles still hold up, and some are going to be new and therefore have relatively limited comparisons. We’ve also moved our graphs from portrait to landscape. Do not adjust your set.

Clock Speeds

When you’re already significantly faster than the RTX 3090 Ti that came before, it isn’t a huge surprise that the RTX 4090 doesn’t go much above the rated speed. Although 100 MHz extra is nothing to be sniffed at, the most important thing is that it is excellent and maintaining that speed throughout. No huge peaks, just consistent speed. Lovely.
