Nvidia’s RTX 6000 Ada Tested in 3DMark: AD102 with 18,176 Cores

On paper, Nvidia’s RTX 6000 Ada professional graphics card has more compute horsepower than the GeForce RTX 4090 flagship board for gamers. Yet, when tested in 3DMark TimeSpy Graphics benchmark, it could not actually beat it, according to a Reddit post noticed by @harukaze5719

Nvidia’s RTX 6000 Ada 48GB graphics board is based around AD102 GPU with 18,176 CUDA cores enabled. While Nvidia and its partners do not specify clocks of the GPU, they disclose that the card has a peak compute performance of 91.1 FP32 TFLOPS (which suggests clocks of around 2,505 MHz). By contrast, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090 24GB uses AD102 GPU with 16,3840 CUDA cores clocked at up to 2,520 MHz and rated for up to 82.575 FP32 TFLOPS. 

There is one major difference between the two cards (although they seem to use the same PCB): the professional one is rated for up to 300W total board power, whereas the gaming one can consume up to 450W of power, which means that the latter can run at high clocks considerably longer than the former. On the one hand, this limits performance, but on the other hand this increases longevity of the RTX 6000 Ada versus GeForce RTX 4090.

This is exactly the case with performance of the two cards in 3DMark Time Spy Graphics benchmark. The RTX 6000 Ada’s Graphics score was 30,158 points with the latest Windows update (as seen in the screenshot), but it could score 36,844 points before the update, according to the individual who posted the score, Reddit user Healthy-Blood-54. Meanwhile, GeForce RTX 4090 can easily score 40,964 points.
