First mentions of Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPUs appear at online stores

Several online stores have published listings for an as yet unannounced Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 video card. This makes the release of this GPU seem close. Nvidia will be livestreaming GeForce news on September 20.

The GeForce RTX 4090 has appeared at an online store in Vietnam, among others, notes tech website VideoCardz. These are Gigabyte models; in any case, that manufacturer seems to be coming up with models in the Aorus, Gaming OC and WindForce 3X series. The listings confirm, among other things, that the RTX 4090 will receive 24GB of memory, as was expected, but no further specifications are mentioned.

Gigabyte RTX 4090 models are also turned up at an Australian webshop. There is, among other things, an RTX 4090 Aorus listed at a price of 3900 Australian dollars. Converted, that comes down to about 2658 euros. Another webshop calls an RTX 4090 Gaming OC for 4270 Australian dollars, or 2910 euros. Presumably these are placeholders; there are no rumors as of yet about Nvidia’s pricing for the next generation and Nvidia has according to VideoCardz sources no prices communicated to board partners yet.

The web stores also make no mention of lower-ranked cards, such as the GeForce RTX 4080 and RTX 4070. There have been rumors for some time that Nvidia will release those video cards at a later date, so that distributors and video card manufacturers can get rid of their current stocks first. The RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 would therefore not appear until early 2023.

Nvidia will hold a GeForce Beyond presentation at GTC 2022 on September 20. The company is expected to announce the RTX 4090 at that time. The video card will probably only appear in the store at a later time. When exactly that will happen is not yet known. Rumors point to an RTX 4090 release in October.
