The GeForce RTX 4090 from Nvidia will be available for purchase on October 12, and it has the potential to become one of the greatest graphics cards in the near future. As a direct consequence of this, stores all around the United States have begun listing the next-generation flagship graphics card in the GeForce RTX 40-series in anticipation of its imminent release.
In contrast to Ampere, which was released with absurdly high costs during difficult economic times, the GeForce RTX 4090 looks to have kept its original suggested retail price of $1,599. Even if it costs a little fortune to buy a GeForce RTX 4090, it is heartening to see a current graphics card finally make its debut at the MSRP price. In recent years, we have been accustomed to seeing Ampere sold at rates that are marked up by resellers.
Best Buy (via momomo us) now offers four different custom GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards listed on their website with prices ranging from $1,599 to $1,749. Despite this, we advise you to approach the price with caution because the listings could just be placeholders, although we hope this isn’t the case.
The most compact version of the four graphics cards is the MSI GeForce RTX 4090 Suprim Liquid X 24G, which can be purchased for a price of $1,749. However, in contrast to the other monsters that take up three PCI slots, this model only uses two of those slots.
The graphics card features a hybrid cooling system, which means that it delegates some of its thermal tasks to an external 240mm radiator. This is the reason why this is the case.
The GeForce RTX 4090 Gaming OC 24G from Gigabyte has a price tag of $1,699 and comes equipped with a bulky 3x WindForce cooling. A vapor chamber serves as the focal point of the cooling system, which also includes ten composite cooper heat pipes and three 110mm cooling fans.
Although Gigabyte did not disclose the clock speeds, the model name suggests it comes with a significant factory overclock to warrant the $100 increase in the price tag. Gigabyte did not divulge the clock speeds.

|Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 Gaming OC 24G||$1,699.99||GV-N4090GAMING OC-24GD|
|MSI GeForce RTX 4090 Gaming X Trio 24G||$1,599.99||6522371|
|Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 WindForce 24G||$1,599.99||GV-N4090WF3-24GD|
Meanwhile, the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 WindForce 24G and the MSI GeForce RTX 4090 Gaming X Trio 24G both maintain Nvidia’s MSRP for their respective graphics cards. Both of the graphics cards are cooled by a powerful cooler that has a three-fan configuration. Fans of the reference design will be able to purchase the GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition from Nvidia for the same price of $1,599.
The fact that neither MSI nor Gigabyte has revealed the clock rates for their respective GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards is something that both companies have in common. In addition, the custom graphics cards, independent of the model, come with a single 16-pin PCIe power connector (12VHPWR).
GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards require a substantial amount of power, which may be supplied by the 12VHPWR connection. These cards have a rated power consumption of 450 watts. Both MSI and Gigabyte recommended using a power supply with a least of 850W, while Gigabyte recommends using a power supply with a minimum of 1,000W for their overclocked machines.
On October 12, many different graphics cards, including the GeForce RTX 4090, became available for purchase in retail outlets. Whether or not you believe in the concept of coincidences, Intel will finally release the eagerly expected Arc A770 on the same day for the price of $329.
Arc Alchemist is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 40-series, or at the very least, not with the GeForce RTX 4090. However, if you believe the benchmarks that Intel has created, the Arc A770 performs similarly to a GeForce RTX 3060; hence, it competes in a whole separate market area.
