NVIDIA GeForce RTX 5090 To Debut With 2.9 GHz Base Clock

New information about the RTX 5090 graphics card has emerged from discussions on the Chiphell forums. A user named Panzerlied, who previously revealed that the RTX 5090 will have a 448-bit memory bus, now reports that its base GPU frequency will exceed the RTX 4090's by over 600 MHz.

Laker claims the RTX 5090 will have a base clock speed of “around 2.9 GHz,” which is significantly higher than the RTX 4090's 2.23 GHz. This new base clock is even higher than the RTX 4090's boost clock of 2.52 GHz. However, this does not necessarily mean that the boost clock will be very high, as it is not clear how NVIDIA has managed the clock speeds in Blackwell-based gaming GPUs. However, the next-gen flagship model is likely to have a boost clock of 3 GHz.

Rumors suggest that the RTX 5090 will be powered by a GB202 Blackwell GPU, although its exact configuration is unknown. The full chip is expected to have 192 streaming multiprocessors, translating to 24,000 cores if NVIDIA continues to use FP32 cores like its previous Blackwell gaming GPUs. The card is also expected to have 28GB of GDDR7 memory on a 448-bit memory bus. With a memory clock speed of 28 Gbps, this setup will deliver over 1.5 TB/s of bandwidth, marking a 50% improvement over the RTX 4090.

All indications point to the RTX 5090 being a substantial upgrade over the RTX 4090, with more cores, increased memory, more bandwidth, and significantly faster clock speeds. If NVIDIA can keep the launch price the same, it will be a significant development.
