NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Graphics Card Rumored To Offer Over Over 2x Gaming Performance Versus RTX 30 Series

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards are going to offer a huge increase in gaming & app performance if the latest leak from QbitLeaks is to be believed.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series  Graphics Cards Rumored To Offer Up To 2x Gaming & Productivity Performance Over RTX 30 Series

Update: This rumor has been confirmed as nothing more than fake information being spread by FCL.

Just an hour ago, the same leaker posted a picture of what's presumably the first good look at the RTX 40 series Founders Edition design & is now bringing us performance numbers of an unknown RTX 40 series graphics card based on the Ada Lovelace architecture.

Once again, it is not told which NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 SKU these performance numbers are from but it is likely that we are looking at either the RTX 4090 or the RTX 4080, both of which were going to offer over a 2x performance improvement over their RTX 30 predecessors according to rumors. The leaker has stated that the numbers are not based on the flagship SKU which would point to these as RTX 4080's performance. He has posted a second picture from the GTC presentation, this time showcasing what seems to be the RTX 4080 sitting next to the RTX 4090 flagship.

The performance metrics include 6 games and 3 productivity applications. It is not mentioned what settings the games were running on but the leaker states that the resolution used was 4K and RTX (Ray Tracing) was enabled across all of them. The leaker states that he doesn't think DLSS was used for these tests.

The titles include Control, Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, Minecraft, Quake II RTX, Dying Light 2, and Cyberpunk 2077. All of these games heavily favor NVIDIA GPUs so the performance is expected to be the best-case scenario for RTX 40 series here.

The actual numbers show up to 2-2.2x gains in the majority of titles whereas Minecraft with RTX shows an 80% performance improvement. In applications such as Autodesk Arnold, Blender, and Chaos V-Ray, the performance also sits at or above 2x which is quite an impressive increase over the previous generation.

Now we must state that there's no way to verify these figures until the green team's announcement at GTC in a few weeks but given that the leaker has also shown us a picture of the upcoming card, it may be legit. That said, we ask our readers to treat this with a grain of salt and hence tagging this post as a rumor. Do let us know your thoughts on how fast you think NVIDIA's next-gen RTX 40 series lineup would be compared to the RTX 30 series in the comments.
