ASUS GeForce RTX 4090 ROG MATRIX Sets World Record & Becomes First GPU To Break 4 GHz Clock Barrier


ASUS GeForce RTX 4090 ROG MATRIX Sets World Record & Becomes First GPU To Break 4 GHz Clock Barrier 1

ASUS's GeForce RTX 4090 ROG MATRIX GPU has become the first graphics card on the planet to break past the 4 GHz clock speed barrier.

ASUS Dethrones All Other GPUs With GeForce RTX 4090 Cards As ROG MATRIX Breaks Past 4 GHz Barrier

ASUS, GALAX & Colorful have been in the race to be the first to achieve the iconic 4 GHz clock speed world record but only one could come out on top. It looks like ASUS has now officially done it with its flagship GeForce RTX 4090 ROG MATRIX graphics card surpassing the 4 GHz barrier, a first in the GPU segment.

The overclocking feat was once again achieved by American overclocker, SPLAVE, who pushed the graphics card to new heights using LN2 cooling. Previously, overclockers CENS & the TecLab team were also gunning for this iconic feat. With LN2 cooling and some PCB tweaks, the GPU was cooled down to -34.6C GPU and -40.0C Hot Spot Temperatures. This allowed SPLAVE to push the graphics card's frequency to the max.

Running the GPUPI 3.3.3 (32B/1B) benchmark, the ASUS GeForce RTX 4090 ROG MATRIX was able to achieve an impressive 4005/4020 MHz GPU clock which is a 59% gain over the stock frequency of just 2520 MHz.

The GPU was also able to achieve the world record within the GPUPI benchmark with a completion score of 45 seconds / 402 milliseconds. The power draw for such an overclock isn't mentioned or shown but it is likely that the card was consuming well over 1000W & a special BIOS was being used to overcome certain power limits.

Following is a timeline of all the GPU frequency records we saw on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 since its launch:

It is simply impressive what all overclockers have achieved so far with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card. First breaking the 3 GHz limit and not hitting 4 GHz, GPUs are fast approaching clock speeds that were previously capable only on CPUs. While LN2 is required to achieve these higher clocks, we can expect future generations with improved process technologies to offer such speeds out of the box.
