NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti has been spotted at a Japanese retailer for a whopping 633,773 Yen or $5,497 USD. The SKU in question is MSI’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Suprim X 24G which boasts a total of 10,752 shaders running at a boost clock of 1.9GHz, paired with 24GB of 21Gbps GDDR6X memory. This beefy configuration has a TDP of 480W which requires a 1000W power supply at the least.
This isn’t the first time the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti has been spotted at an online retailer. A while back factory overclocked variants from different AIBs were also spotted at multiple European etailers. These were priced between 3,130 and 4,000 euros, courtesy of a lack of an official MSRP.
The strange thing about all this is that NVIDIA still hasn’t announced a launch date for the RTX 3090 Ti, and as per rumors that boils down to production issues. The large die size of the GA102 makes it hard to produce flawless chips, bogging down useable volumes. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is likely going to remain a halo or collectors edition GPU of sorts, with prices exceeding 2x the value of the similarly performing RTX 3090.
