Last year, Nvidia unveiled the flagship and powerful RTX 4090 graphics card with a default price of $1,599. The price that Nvidia announces for its products is for the reference version. Different stores offer custom graphics card models at a higher price. Since the launch of the RTX 4090, the price of this graphics card has always been higher than $1,599. Most models currently sell for over $2,000.
According to Toms Hardover, the Newegg store has made the Gigabyte RTX 4090 Gaming OC custom graphics card available for $1,709. Nvidia’s flagship still has a very high price (even in global markets), but the price drop of this product is good news for gamers. Gigabyte’s custom model is largely identical to the reference model, only 15 MHz higher. Theoretically, the Gigabyte RTX 4090 Gaming OC is only 0.6% more powerful than the reference model.
Gigabyte graphics cards typically perform well in overclocking. In this way, Gigabyte RTX 4090 Gaming OC buyers can gain more power by overclocking this graphics card.
The price of graphics card in the market is still high. These products became much more expensive during the Corona era due to people’s interest in cryptocurrency mining, but over time, their prices dropped. Currently, Nvidia graphics are priced higher than the latest AMD graphics and have more power.
