Yesterday, we reported on the possibility that NVIDIA’s upcoming flagship GPU, the GeForce RTX 3090, would debut at a wallet-busting price of $2,000. The rumor mill is now claiming otherwise. According to Chip Hell user wjm47196 (who, per Wccftech, has “a history of leaks/rumors that turned out to be true”), green team’s halo product will actually launch at $1,399.
Is that better? Not really, since a $1,399 price tag would make the GeForce RTX 3090 $400 more expensive than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (and $200 more than the Founders Edition). But it’s certainly an improvement over the coma-inducing prices that were being shared yesterday.
wjm47196 claims that the Founders Edition will only be $100 more expensive than the standard SKU this time around. This means that prospective GeForce RTX 3090 owners who want a slightly faster boost clock (among other potential improvements) may want to set aside $1,499.
The leaker can also “confirm” that the GeForce RTX 3090 will feature 24 GB of GDDR6X, which is certainly higher than Micron’s estimate. According to a tech brief shared by the memory giant, the RTX 3090 is supposed to feature 12 GB of memory. We’ll see what happens in two weeks…
