Newegg Mistakenly Lists Pricing For Custom GeForce RTX 3090 GPUs

The GeForce RTX 3090, which will likely destroy even the fastest gaming graphics card, has already gone up on Newegg. Although the U.S. retailer doesn't publicly disclose the pricing, a resourceful Redditor has discovered a way to uncover the prices for the different custom models. We confirmed the postings, and even found a few extra. 

The GeForce RTX 3090 is scheduled to go on sale on September 24, just a couple of days from now. Nvidia itself will charge $1,499 for the Founders Edition, but there will be tons of custom options for those of you that don't dig Nvidia's unconventional cooler design or the 12-pin PCIe power connector. However, it appears that you might have to pay a small premium for custom cards (as expected).

Presently, Newegg has posed 14 custom GeForce RTX 3090 SKUs that hail from the major players on the market, including Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte and Zotac. Nevertheless, only eight of the listed SKUs have believable real price tags. The remaining postings seemingly have placeholder pricing as they exceed the $5,000 mark. The GeForce RTX 3090 is going to be expensive, but not that expensive.

Gamers that want to get something that's closest in pricing to the Founders Edition will find refuge in Asus' TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090, which Newegg lists for $1,499.99. The triple-fan graphics card has a boost clock up to 1,725 MHz, a tiny 1.8% upgrade over the Founders Edition. Moreover, the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 relies on a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors in lieu of the 12-pin PCIe power connector that Nvidia is trying to push.

At $1,799.99 a pop, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 OC Edition and EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra Gaming are the two most expensive custom iterations of the GeForce RTX 3090. 

Asus is still reluctant to expose the clock speeds for the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 OC Edition. On the flipside, Newegg lists the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra Gaming with a 1,800 MHz boost clock, which represents a 6.2% increase in comparison to the GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition. Being heavily factory-overclocked models, both have steeper power requirements and command three 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

When it comes to specifications and steep price tags, we expect MSI's GeForce RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio or Gigabyte's Aorus RTX 3090 Xtreme to be at the same caliber as the Asus and EVGA models.

Official availability of these cards is just days away on 9/24, at which time Newegg and the third-party GPU makers will whip the covers off of full pricing and specs for the RTX 3090. We just hope the cards don't suffer from the soul-crushing shortages we see with the RTX 3080

    "Pre-Order" auctions have already shown up on E-Bay as well as the anti-scalper listings. The one I liked best:

    RTX 3090 - $1499 (anti-scalper - no card will be sent)
    50% of sale price will be sent to charity!

    Just curious what happens to the other 50%.

    Can't see how this card will run more than 10% faster than 3080 in gaming given the specs. The cost is more than 2x. But we'll see from the benchmarks reveal tomorrow. I hope people don't end up buying it just because 3080 is unavailable, because that would be a waste of money. I've learned my lesson from heavily overpriced 2080 Ti, not going anywhere near this card.

    They should be in line with 3080 prices. With only 21% more shading units than the 3080 (10496 vs 8704), the 3090 will only have between 10%-15% better gaming performance. Remember that shaders don't scale linearly.

    As a gaming card, the 3090 is going to be a massive disappointment and an even more massive rip-off!

    How much faster do you think it'll be?

    Given that 3080 has 2x CUDA cores than 2080 ti and is only 33% faster, I'd extrapolate 7% speedup for 3090 which has 21% more CUDA cores than 3080. Note that 3080 also had faster memory than 2080 ti, but 3090 probably has better silicon so I'll stick with the prediction of 7%. I suspect that's why it was marketed as an 8K gaming card (?!), but we'll find out tomorrow. :D

    Dang man, that's worst than the 10% people implied. Haha.
