Nvidia’s RTX 4090
The GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card from Nvidia is expected to deliver double the performance of its immediate predecessor, the RTX 3090. Reports that the RTX 4090 offers a considerable performance boost over the RTX 3090 have been circulating for weeks, and the latest evidence backs up those claims.
The RTX 4090 is slated to be released this summer, with the newest speculations indicating that it might happen as early as mid-July. However, because Nvidia has yet to make an official statement on the subject, everything remains speculative.
Rumors of Nvidia’s RTX 4090 price
According to rumors, it would cost $1,899, which would be a substantial premium above the RTX 3090’s MSRP of $1,499. Third-party designs from ASUS, EVGA, and others, on the other hand, will almost certainly be much more costly than the reference designs, well exceeding the $2,000 threshold.
Due to the ongoing GPU scarcity, third-party RTX 3090 cards are currently above $2,000, but new reports show that graphics card costs are now falling down to more acceptable levels, even selling at a discount in certain cases.

Prolific tipster Kopite7kimi confirmed prior allegations that Nvidia’s forthcoming RTX 4090 graphics card will deliver double the performance of the RTX 3090. They also released a revised list of specifications for the next GPU, showing that just 126 streaming multiprocessors (SMs) will be activated when it ships. Nvidia’s RTX 4090
The figure is substantially lower than the 140-odd that was originally predicted. According to the tweet, the card will have 16,128 CUDA cores, 24GB of GDDR6X memory clocked at 21 Gbps, and a TDP of 450 watts. The card was previously projected to have a TDP of 600W.
The RTX 4090 Ti has the potential to be much more powerful
Even with the lower-than-expected power needs and fewer SMs, the tipster expects the next card to deliver twice the 3D acceleration performance of its predecessor. This bodes well for the RTX 4090 Ti, which is expected to have more cores and a higher TDP, resulting in even quicker performance.
It’s unclear how many RTX 4000-series cards Nvidia will release this year, although speculations say the RTX 4090, RTX 4080, and RTX 4070 will be among them. If previous generations are any indication, the RTX 4060 and RTX 4050 will be released at some point, but probably not this year. In any case, the specifications supplied by the tipster are simply hearsay at this point and should be treated with caution until Nvidia confirms them.
