JayzTwoCents has shared a look at a GeForce RTX 4090 FTW3 prototype from EVGA, teasing what the company might have announced last month if it didn’t grow tired of doing business with NVIDIA. Described by the popular hardware YouTuber as” what would have been one of the most awesome 4090s ever,” the graphics card appears to be just as long as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti FTW3, but with some clear differences, such as a revised heat sink prompted by the power demands of NVIDIA’s new Lovelace GPU, alongside familiar design elements that include a honeycomb pattern on the backplate. It’s unclear how much EVGA would have priced its GeForce RTX 4090 models at, but EVGA’s custom GeForce RTX 3090 models launched with MSRPs from $1,609.99 to $2,119.99, according to current store listings.
EVGA revealed that it would be leaving the GPU market in September, with management posting the following on its official forums:
- EVGA will not carry the next generation graphics cards.
- EVGA will continue to support the existing current generation products.
- EVGA will continue to provide the current generation products.
EVGA is committed to our customers and will continue to offer sales and support on the current lineup. Also, EVGA would like to say thank you to our great community for the many years of support and enthusiasm for EVGA graphics cards.
