Three retailers have apparently obtained orders for 24GB Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics playing cards from Gigabyte, in keeping with a Fb submit 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 supposing these are in all probability 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 offered 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 possible not even near official costs.
Coincidentally, these orders have began to return in just some days after Nvidia began selling its “GeForce Past” programme. Not less than one new GPU and Nvidia’s future Ada Lovelace structure can be unveiled at GTC, there’s little doubt about it. After all, 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 based mostly solely on the Aorus emblem.
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 offered 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 inexpensive at $3,900 AUS (together with gross sales tax). These playing cards price $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 is no such thing as a proof that these costs are even remotely near the official MSRP, so don’t take them too significantly. Though the RTX 4090 may price excess of the RTX 3090 Ti, which is now out there for simply $1,100, we’d be extraordinarily shocked to see Nvidia cost greater than the 3090 Ti’s $1,999 launch worth — until it introduces a brand new Titan card.
