The first NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30xx customs appeared online: it happened on the Chinese ecommerce Taobao, which showed 3 cards of Colorful and one ASUS ROG. In all cases these are the top of the range RTX 3090, but there is no detailed information on what distinguishes one variant from the other – apart from the name, of course. The prices of two of the four proposals are also marked, but they seem really too high to be credible – up to more than double what was assumed in the past, which was already a good drain. We summarize the details here; in red are the two missing prices that were leaked separately a few days ago:
- Colorful GeForce RTX 3090 Vulcan X – 13,999 renminbi, equal to 1,712 €
- Colorful GeForce RTX 3090 Vulcan X-OC – 16,999 renminbi, equivalent to 1,957 €
- Colorful GeForce RTX 3090 Neptune D – 12,999 renminbi, equivalent to 1,590 €
- ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 OC Gaming 18,999 renminbi, equal to 2,324 €
We can only hope that, as we said, the prices are not real, despite the fact that the flagship gpu of the Ampere generation actually promises impressive performance and impressive specifications. Previous rumors gave NVIDIA's GPU reference at $ 1,399, or about € 1,174; a custom version with more refined PCBs and heatsinks is generally a little more expensive, but not that much.
In any case, it is very little now to know all the details. The official presentation of the cards will take place on September 1, and it is expected that the custom cards will also be made official soon.
