With launch fast approaching, custom models of Gigabyte’s NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card have been listed by a Vietnamese retailer.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 custom model from Gigabyte listed: Windforce 3X, Gaming OC & AORUS flavors in the works
Update: Australian retailers have also started listing the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 series with their preliminary pricing, which should not be considered the final MSRP or price. Australian retailers, PCAOS and Computersperth have listed the cards for prices up to $4550 AUD, which equates to over $3000 US.
Vietnamese shop, Kccshop (via I_Leak_VN), listed three upcoming graphics cards from Gigabyte that are custom designs for NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards. The models include two standard Gigabyte offerings (Windforce & Gaming) and an AORUS (Master) variant as listed below.
The retailer seems to be taking pre-orders for these cards early on as they’ve only received the manufacturers’ notification for these models, but we recommend readers avoid preliminary offers and wait for the cards to actually be available in the store. shelves before making a purchase.
All three graphics cards feature a factory overclocked and custom PCB design, while boasting 24GB of GDDR6X memory, the standard for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards. Just a few hours ago, we leaked the first benchmarks of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 graphics reference card, which shows a 2x performance increase over the RTX 3090 in 3DMark. The specifications for the upcoming models are described below.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 ‘Expected’ specs
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 will use 128 SMs out of 144 SMs for a total of 16,384 CUDA cores. The GPU comes with 96MB of L2 cache and a total of 384 ROPs, which is just insane. Clock speeds have not yet been confirmed, but since the TSMC 4N process is used, we expect clocks in the 2.0-3.0 GHz range.
As for the memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to rock 24GB GDDR6X capacities clocked at 21Gbps speeds over a 384-bit bus interface. This provides up to 1 TB/s of bandwidth. This is the same bandwidth as the existing RTX 3090 Ti graphics card and in terms of power consumption the TBP would have 450W meaning the TGP could come out lower. The card is powered by a single 16-pin connector that provides up to 600W of power. It’s likely we’ll get 500W+ custom designs, as we saw with the RTX 3090 Ti.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards, including the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 graphics cards, will be one of the first graphics cards to be launched alongside the RTX 4090 for gamers. The RTX 4090 is launching on October 22 so far, but a reveal is expected later this month during NVIDIA’s GTC keynote.
