As you may already suppose, the specialized hardware media already have the first models of RTX 4090 in our power to be able to show you our analysis as soon as the NVIDIA embargo is lifted, but as of today they allow us to show you real images of this new generation of graphics cards. So, in this article we are going to show you our unbox of the Gigabyte RTX 4090 Gaming OC 24Gthe model that in a few days we will talk about in more depth.
As you may already guess from the name, the RTX 4090 model that we are going to show you next is a custom model from Gigabyte, which incorporates its usual triple-fan heatsink (although oversized as you can see right away) and, in this case, it also has a slight factory overclock. Go for it.

Let’s start talking about the packaging, of great dimensions and weight as it could not be otherwise. We are facing a fairly large and heavy box on whose front face we can see the brand and model, and where the manufacturer also highlights some of its features, such as its 4-year warranty or compatibility with DLSS 3.0 and NVIDIA Reflex technologies.
On the opposite side, what we have is information on the heatsink, with its triple 10-centimeter alternating fan design and the oversized rear hole that guarantee operation at a good temperature.
The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 Gaming OC 24G is of course immense, and we are dealing with a graphics card weighing more than 2 Kg, which is why the manufacturer includes a bracket among the accessories that will allow us to literally screw the graphics to the same bracket as the motherboard.
The aesthetic design of this model is exactly the same as what we already saw when we analyzed the RTX 3050, also from Gigabyte, but obviously with a much larger size.
This model, like that of other manufacturers and even similar to NVIDIA’s own Founders Edition models, has more than considerable dimensions, 35 centimeters long. You can see its exact dimensions in the following image gallery.
One of the new features that this new series of graphics cards powered by the new Ada Lovelace architecture will incorporate (in addition to DLSS 3.0 and many others that we will talk about in depth when we publish our analysis) is the power delivery, which has changed also physically with the famous NVIDIA 16-pin connector.
This Gigabyte graphics card includes an accessory that will allow us to use a total of four 8-pin PCIe connectors from the power supply to convert it into a single 16-pin connector for the graphics card, although as you will see it is quite short, the connectors are very thick , and that means that we will have no choice but to leave them there “hanging” in the middle of the box.
Fortunately, some manufacturers, such as CORSAIR, already have their own native cables for these 16-pin connectors, and in our case we will use CORSAIR’s because it allows us to use two PCIe/EPS connectors from the source with a single cable and a single connector, instead of having to use 2 cables and 4 connectors. We will also talk about this in depth in the review.
For now we can’t show you much more, but what we can tell you is that, as you might already guess, we are already working with this model to be able to offer you our analysis just at the moment they are launched on the market. Stay tuned, because it has a LOT of crumb.
