Nvidia’s new powerhouse, the RTX 4090, should be available in France this week from several retailers. However, not all references should be available on the same day.
It has now been several days since Nvidia lifted the veil on these new RTX 4080 and RTX 4090, and the latter were eagerly awaited by gamers looking for the most powerful graphics cards on the market. The wait could end as early as this weekif we are to believe the information displayed at several French retailers.
Indeed, at Grosbill or even Cybertek, we can see that some RTX 4090s will soon be offered for sale on the Internet. Some references such as the MSI RTX 4090 Gaming Trio, the MSI RTX 4090 Gaming X Trio or the MSI RTX 4090 Suprim Liquid X will be available from October 7, 2022, i.e. this Friday.
The prices of the custom versions are exploding in France.
While we expected fairly moderate prices for the custom versions of the RTX 4090s, the different references are already displayed much more expensive than Nvidia’s suggested retail prices for its Founders Edition. As a reminder, Nvidia had announced an MSRP of 1949 euros for its RTX 4090 during its conference, or 22% more than the prices across the Atlantic.
At Grosbill, the MSI RTX 4090 Gaming X Trio is for example displayed at 2199 euros, while it takes 2099 euros for the non-X version. Without surprise, the MSI RTX 4090 Suprim Liquid X reference is offered at 2399 euros because of its water cooling. Other versions should arrive the following week on October 12, such as the MSI RTX 4090 Suprim X at 2349 euros.
It will still take wait until you see cheaper versions arrive. Grosbill already references an ASUS RTX 4090 24G Gaming and a Gigabyte GV-N4090WF3-24GD at only 1999 euros or even a Zotac RTX 4090 Trinity at 2049 euros. We also expect to see KFA2 models arriving in the next few days, which should be more affordable than the competition.
For those who find the prices unaffordable, it will probably take some getting used to. The CEO of Nvidia himself said that the prices were not about to drop. In question, we can cite in particular the sharp rise in the production price of chips with such fine engravings.
