To put Panzerlied’s leak into context, this leaked RTX 5090 has 24,576 CUDA cores, 1.53 TB/s of memory bandwidth, 128MB/s of cache (L1, L2, L3 or combined), and a 2.9GHz Boost Clock. The colossal 1.7x performance improvement is a bit hard to believe, but these RTX 5090 specs would still make it substantially quicker than the RTX 4090.
However, it’s still way too early to tell if these new leaked GPU specifications will carry on into the real RTX 5090. GPU development isn’t a straight-line process. It involves a lot of planning, prototyping and testing that all generates feedback, so there’s a good chance Panzerlied’s GPU specs might become outdated if NVIDIA realizes it can improve or needs to backdown certain elements of its new design.
Still, it’s interesting to see what NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU lineup might be able to achieve. Even if the RTX 5090 is just half as fast as Panzerlied’s predictions, it would still represent a monstrous gen over gen improvement compared to the RTX 4090.
