Three retailers have apparently acquired orders for 24GB Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics playing cards from Gigabyte, in response to a Fb publish by Kccshop and a tweet by @momomo us. KCCshop, Computer systems Perth, and Perth Laptop and Workplace Provides are the retailers; the primary is from Vietnam and the opposite two are from Australia. Even if these are most likely simply early listings with exaggerated prices, all indicators level to the RTX 4090 competing for a slot among the many high graphics playing cards very quickly.
Solely Australian shops supplied costs, and when transformed to U.S. foreign money, it seems that the price of the newer playing cards may exceed $3,000. These adverts would additionally violate Nvidia coverage, violate any relevant embargo, and are very seemingly not even near official costs.
Coincidentally, these orders have began to come back in only a few days after Nvidia began selling its “GeForce Past” programme. At the least one new GPU and Nvidia’s future Ada Lovelace structure will likely be unveiled at GTC, there’s little doubt about it. In fact, early speculative hypothesis is rife.
Three mannequin names are given to us within the Fb itemizing from Kccshop: N4090WF3-24GB, N4090Gaming OC-24GD, and N4090AORUS M-24GD. It’s easy to find out that these are Gigabyte mannequin numbers for purported RTX 4090 SKUs primarily based solely on the Aorus brand.
These mannequin numbers additionally validate the Nvidia RTX 4090’s 24GB of reminiscence capability, which has lengthy been anticipated.
For 2 of the three 4090 SKUs, they provide precise costs, whereas KCCshop merely supplied mannequin names. The Gigabyte Gaming OC RTX 4090 is listed for $4,550 AUS (together with gross sales tax) within the SKUs from Perth Computer systems and Workplace Provides, whereas the Aorus variant is considerably cheaper at $3,900 AUS (together with gross sales tax). These playing cards value $3112 and $2666 when transformed on to USD, respectively. For the reason that Aorus model is often related to Gigabyte’s flagship mannequin, that additionally appears slightly bizarre.
A single Gigabyte RTX 4090 Gaming OC is obtainable at Computer systems Perth for $4270 AUS, or $2919 USD. Bear in mind: There isn’t a proof that these costs are even remotely near the official MSRP, so don’t take them too severely. Though the RTX 4090 may value excess of the RTX 3090 Ti, which is now obtainable for simply $1,100, we’d be extraordinarily shocked to see Nvidia cost greater than the 3090 Ti’s $1,999 launch worth — except it introduces a brand new Titan card.
