NVIDIA GeForce RTX 5090 Could Be the Fastest out of the Box Clocked CPU with 2.9GHz Clock Speed

| Updated on 11 July 2024

There is a rumor that NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 5090 GPU will feature a clock speed near the 3GHz mark, which would be a massive upgrade from the 4090 series. 

VideoCardz reported that over at Chiphell Forums, there is a user named Panzerlied who provides regular leaks. The user is a trusted source of leaks when it comes to PC technology, but still, one should approach it with some caution. The users share that RTX 5090 will run a base clock of close to 2.9GHz out of the box. 

If this is a concrete leak, then it would be a massive improvement from the last generation. The last generation GPU only just edges over 2.2GHz for its base clock. From this perspective, the new RTX 5090 will be close to 30% faster than the last generation. 

Yes, RTX 4090 doesn’t get much above 2.5GHz even when boosting, let alone touch 3GHz. So, it is going to be a pretty incredible achievement. 

The user, Panzerlied, also informed us about the RTX 5090 supposedly using a 448-bit memory bus (as opposed to the previously rumored 512-bit bus), which would mean a VPRAM loadout of 28GB. 

With this clock speed, the power consumption of RT 5090 will be through the roof. However, even Panzerlied isn’t sure how the company will handle it. 

This information is just a leak and should be taken with a pinch of salt and hang tight until NVIDIA makes an official announcement of the product.
