The nextgen graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD are currently in their testing phase, and as such we are seeing more and more rumors and leaks coming out regarding the upcoming RTX 40 and RX 7000 series. According to a new report though, these GPUs could be set to offer over 100 TFLOPS of compute performance, over twice as much as the current generation of cards.
According to the report, the flagship RTX 40 series graphics card (RTX 4090?) will achieve more than 100 TFLOPS of compute power, which is over twice as much as the current flagship RTX 3090 Ti (40 TFLOPS). Additionally, the RX 7900 XT will apparently have 92 TFLOPS, which itself is 4 times more than the RX 6900 XT (23.04 TFLOPS).
RTX 40 and RX 7000 GPU reported early specs
|GPU||RTX 40 flagship (RTX 4090?)||RX 7900 XT|
|Cores||18432 CUDA||15360 Streaming Processors|
|Peak Clock Speed||Close to 3GHz||~3GHz|
|TFLOP performance||~100 TFLOPS||92 TFLOPS|
|Memory||24GB GDDR6X||32GB GDDR6|
*Specs above are speculative based on multiple leaks and rumors. Final specs are likely to change.
Now obviously TFLOPS are not an exact measurement of gaming performance, we’ve known that for a while now. Twice as many TFLOPS does not exactly correlate to twice as much FPS in the same titles, but 100 TFLOPS is still way more than expected, and only strengthens the rumors that nextgen GPUs will have a massive leap in performance compared to the last generation.
What is really exciting though is the reported clock speeds, which help to increase TFLOP performance. According to the same report, the RX 7900 XT will have a clock speed of 3GHz or more, and the RTX 40 series flagship could reach up to similar speeds, likely thanks to the switch from Samsung’s 8nm process node to TSMC’s 4N node.
What do you think? Are you excited for the nextgen GPUs from Nvidia and AMD? How do you feel about TFLOP performance these days? Is it important to gauge gaming performance? Or is it not insightful at all? Were you expecting 100 TFLOPS or more? And how do you feel about the reported clock speeds? Let us know!
