Newegg is already displaying prices for a variety of GeForce RTX 4090 GPUs, the first Ada Lovelace models to be released next month. NVIDIA revealed a suggested retail price of USD $1,599 for this card, and it looks that various bespoke models will be available at this price.
Cards including MSI Gaming Trio, Gigabyte Windforce, and ASUS TUF Gaming are all featured at the NVIDIA MSRP. Overclocked models such as the Gaming X Trio (1,649), Suprim X (1,649 USD), and even the new liquid-cooled MSI SUPRIM Liquid X are available for an additional $50 to $150. (1,749 USD). The most expensive models are the ASUS TUF OC and ROG Strix OC, priced at $1,799 and $1,999, respectively. In addition to displaying Gigabyte Gaming and Gigabyte AORUS Master, the store also provides no pricing information.
TechPowerUP speculates that this might indicate that the GPU price gauging is coming to an end. With the GPU market fluctuating significantly in August and September and the value of GPU-dependent cryptocoins plunging, a robust GPU launch might be anticipated next month.
However, it’s not just the NVIDIA RTX 4090 that will be released soon, Intel will also release the Arc A770 on the same day, which is an even more intriguing card. It might be more tempting to gamers because of its aggressive pricing ($329), which is almost five times less than RTX 4090. In November, AMD and NVIDIA will officially release the Radeon RX 7000 and RTX 4080 series graphics cards.
It’s important to remember that three companies will soon be contending for our money. Most of the time, there will be just one winner.
