When we talk about NVIDIA RTX 40 and its high-end graphics, we always keep in mind the high price and consumption that skyrockets if we raise its frequencies. With the RTX 4090 we have already seen that from the factory with Boost they easily exceed 2.5 GHz and as soon as we start to increase these by overclocking, we can already imagine that the consumption will skyrocket. However, we found a user who has managed to put his RTX 4090 a nothing less than 3.135MHz through overclock and with a consumption of “only” 493Wsomething that is too efficient, what has happened?.
NVIDIA will launch its most powerful graphics cards, the RTX 4090 on October 12, where we already know that they will have a price that is not suitable for all pockets. With an official MSRP of €1,949 for the model Founders Edition, these NVIDIA GPUs are going to be a purchase only for those who really use them professionally or simply want to indulge in this whim. A whim that promises to give unparalleled performance in games and programs, since the sum of its 16,384 CUDA Cores along with its high frequencies and 24GB of GDDR6X memory, they will have no rival in their launch. Now, if it meets the overclock forecasts, we should be able to squeeze even more performance out of this monster of 450W of TGP.
An RTX 4090 appears at 3.1 GHz consuming 493W and many doubts

From the leaker’s hand wxnod On Twitter, we have a GPU-Z screenshot of a purported RTX 4090 hitting never-before-seen frequencies. Our eyes go straight to those 3.135MHz shown in the first place and immediately we will see the consumption thinking that this will have increased to a great extent and it is only 43W more than factory. Here begin the questions of how this is possible, what has happened for this to be fulfilled. If we go on to look at the rest of the values, instead of finding the answer to this, it only generates even more questions.
Even, We got up if it’s really truewell the GPU load is at 0%while the is used only 1GB of memory and the controller stays at 26% load. In fact, while clock rates exceed 3 GHz, the memory clock is only at 50.6MHzalthough this would be minimum value. Another aspect to take into account is that the fans are at 0 RPMliterally Passiveswithout being used, something that is not possible at these frequencies and consumption to maintain the temperatures they show.
And it is that, unlike the filtration of a few days ago, here the temperatures do appear, giving 68.2 °C for GPU Y 40.3°C for him hottest point (hot spot). Although this measurement of the hotspot does not make sense, it is because it refers back to the minimum value. While we know that temperature is key to boosting frequencies, the filter you have not indicated that you have used it to refrigerate italthough we can think of something customized probably.
The same user uploaded a screenshot of the factory RTX 4090 with 447W
Before uploading that capture that would give rise to the controversy, the same user showed the RTX 4090 with the factory values. This time, if we have something more in line with reality, then a RTX 4090 at a frequency of 2,730MHz and a consumption of 447W. So far everything seems to be similar to what NVIDIA said and in this chaos we see that consumption represents the 99.3% of the TDP. Also, we finally see the fans work, both at one 40% of its speed, which means about 1,653 RPM. With this, you get a GPU temperatures of 65.6°CMeanwhile he hottest point stays in 73.4°C.
Also, unlike before, the GPU load is already more normal, standing at a 97% instead of that 0% that would imply idle or rest. Even so, we see that only 993MB of memory and the interface is kept at 0% and the 2% memory controller. We can also see the voltage of this factory RTX 4090, which is kept at 1.05V in this type of load. With all this, we still don’t know what kind of benchmark or game he used to take these measures, because together with the cooling system, they are key aspects to take into account. What we can find out is that the CPUs it is very fresh, because it reaches only 22°C during the test.
