Graphics chips based on the Blackwell architecture made their debut in Marchwith new accelerators aimed at the AI ​​segment. And there is great expectation regarding the announcement of options of this same architecture aimed at the gamer market, the line RTX 50. The new rumors on this topic, coming from Chinaaddress the issue of the base clock of one of these VGAs. The GPU operating frequency would be close to 2.9 GHz.

Jump of around 30% in the base clock

If confirmed, would be a 30% jump, considering that the RTX 4090 It has a base clock of 2.2 GHz. Regarding the performance leap taking into account the generational leap, the expectation is that the RTX 5090 will be between 50% and 70% faster than the RTX 4090.

The GPU that should ship the RTX 5090 is the GB202, based on TSMC’s 3nm production process, equipped with 192 processing units (SMs) and 24,567 CUDA Cores. The card would have 32 GB of GDDR7 memory with speeds of up to 28 Gbps. However, it is also said that the amount of VRAM could be lower, 24 GB GDDR7. But it is practically a consensus that the speed will be 28 Gbps.

When will NVIDIA release the RTX 50 cards?

Initially, it was said that NVIDIA would launch the RTX 5090 and RTX 5080 in 2024, but some more recent information suggests that the cards’ arrival date on the market has been moved to early 2025.
