Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti leaked price appears at an unbelievable $4,000

The RTX 3090 Ti, which is scheduled to be released at the end of this month, may be more expensive than initially thought. Twitter user with eagle eyes @momomo_us saw some retail listings of the RTX 3090 Ti costing nearly $4,000 each.

Listings from an unnamed Canadian retailer have an ASUS GF TUF Strix RTX 3090 Ti 24GB for $4,649.19 CAD ($3680 USD) and an ASUS ROG STRIX LC RTX 3090 Ti 24GB for $5,239.93 CAD ($4,143 USD) . We suspect the price difference for these two GPUs is that the ROG Strix is ​​a liquid-cooled unit, hence the ‘LC’ in the name. My speculation for a while was that this colossal GPU would cost around $2,500 at launch, so this is a lot higher than I imagined.

Right now, the MSRP for an RTX 3090 is $1,500, but we’ve seen versions of this GPU appear at retailers for well over $2,000. We see this trend with GPUs slowly becoming more available again at many online retailers and prices being marked up.

The RTX 3090 Ti is expected to be a monster of a graphics card as a full GA102 GPU with 10,752 CUDA cores and 24GB of memory. VRAM is the big difference between this one and the regular RTX 3090, clocked at 21Gbps memory instead of the original’s 19.5Gbs and almost eight times the number of shader TFLOPs at 40. powerful GPU on the market and would earn a place among the best graphics cards if anyone could afford one.

While the RTX 3090 Ti should be a force to be reckoned with, it’s hard to believe it will be twice as expensive as a regular RTX 3090. So take this information with a ton of salt – but @momomo_us did tweet that AMD was releasing a bunch of new Ryzen chips in April just last week. Those 3090 Tis could simply be placeholder pricing so that retailer can build the listing on their backend to update later as we get closer to launch – although with the way the GPU market has been for the past few years , everything is possible.
