RTX 3090 39 percent faster than RTX 4090

NVIDIA upgraded its high-end RTX 40 series GPUs this year with refreshed “Super” variants, but left the RTX 4090 untouched. However, a team of mod makers managed to create a GPU faster than a regular RTX 4090 by making their own version.

39% Faster RTX 4090 from Modders

NVIDIA’s Super cards have always had upgraded memory subsystems, so modders have focused on this area of the RTX 4090. The TecLab team on YouTube built a GPU that required them to transplant the RTX 4090 die from a different GPU onto a new printed circuit board (PCB), take the memory from an RTX 4080 Super GPU and place it on the board, and then overclock it. The team behind the project released a video describing the experiment in Portuguese.

The GPU’s components are a 4090 die transplanted on PCB from an RTX 3090 Ti HOF from Galax, the company’s flagship overclocking card. Modders replaced the 3090 Ti’s 21Gbps GDDR6X memory with 23Gbps memory from an RTX 4080 Super and then overclocked it to 26Gbps. Using Unigine’s Superposition 8K benchmark, the modified card scored 39% higher than stock with everything overclocked and detail level optimizations. However, when only the memory was overclocked to 26Gbps, the board ran 13% faster than stock, proving that a memory upgrade alone can provide a significant boost in performance.

The ability of memory alone to boost performance is remarkable. Micron said that the new GDDR7 memory can increase frames per second by more than 30%. Micron is expected to launch GDDR7 at speeds of 28Gbps and 32Gbps for the next generation of GPUs this year, but it’s unclear which version NVIDIA will use for the 50 series at launch. Rumor has it that it will stick with 28Gbps so it can upgrade that when Supercards arrive in late 2025.
