The price of the Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti, according to leaked information, is an astonishing $4,000. It’s possible that the RTX 3090 Ti is a little out of our price range.
Perhaps the RTX 3090 Ti, which is expected to be introduced later this month, will prove to be more expensive than first anticipated. A keen-eyed Twitter user, @momomo us, saw a couple of RTX 3090 Ti retail listings that were each selling for roughly $4,000 each.
The ASUS GF TUF Strix RTX 3090 Ti 24GB is listed for $4,649.19 CAD ($3680 USD) at an unknown Canadian shop, while the ASUS ROG STRIX LC RTX 3090 Ti is listed for $5239.93 CAD ($4,143 USD) at an unnamed Canadian retailer. We assume that the reason for the pricing difference between these two GPUs is because the ROG Strix LC is a liquid-cooled unit, as indicated by the ‘LC’ in the model name.. This is significantly more expensive than I had anticipated. I had predicted that this massive GPU would cost roughly $2500 at launch, thus this is a huge surprise.
As of right now, the MSRP for an RTX 3090 graphics card is $1500, but we’ve seen variations of that GPU sell for far over $2,000 in retail stores. In this case, we are seeing GPUs steadily becoming more widely available again at several online stores, with costs being marked up in the process.
Due to the fact that it is a complete GA102 GPU with 10,752 CUDA cores and 24GB of memory, the RTX 3090 Ti is projected to be a monster of a graphics card. In comparison to the previous generation, the VRAM is significantly faster, with a memory clock speed of 21Gbps rather than the previous generation’s 19.5Gbps and roughly eight times the amount of shader TFLOPs at 40, compared to the previous generation’s 20. This would make it the most powerful GPU available on the market, and it would earn a spot among the greatest graphics cards if anyone could afford one.
Despite the fact that the RTX 3090 Ti is expected to be a serious competitor, it’s difficult to believe that it will cost twice as much as a standard RTX 3090. To be sure, this information should be taken with a grain of salt—but only last week, @momomo us tweeted out that AMD would be introducing a slew of new Ryzen processors starting in April. These 3090 Ti prices could simply be placeholders to allow this merchant to establish the listing on its backend, which it will then alter as we move closer to the release date—though, given the state of the GPU market over the previous several years, anything is theoretically possible.
