Items tagged with geforce rtx 4090

Being exactly such a person myself, I can tell you that people with niche interests run into performance bottlenecks you just don't see normally. A key example of such a use-case comes in the form of using graphics cards externally over Thunderbolt. We normally think of the bandwidth between a GPU and its host as a... Read more...
Remember when the eMachines brand permeated the PC space with value priced systems and a 'Never Obsolete' upgrade program? If that's before your time, then take our word for it that eMachines had a big presence in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Harkening back to that era, the latest episode of GeForce Garage...

The starting price for a GeForce RTX 4090 is $1,599.99 for a Founders Edition model and custom cards that stick with the reference blueprint. From there, prices go up to around $2,000, or even higher if you're willing to pay scalper pricing on eBay. Or you could score an amazing deal and nab one from a major retailer... Read more...
Unless the mountains of leaks and rumors are all wrong, NVIDIA will unveil its initial lineup of GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs for laptops at its GeForce Beyond event just days before the Consumer Electronics Show officially begins next week. That will presumably include its upcoming flagship mobile GPU, the GeForce RTX... Read more...
Some online retail listings may have cast a clearer light onto NVIDIA’s RTX 40 Laptop GPU plans. PC tech Tweeter momomo_us has shared an image outlining multiple configurations of an updated HP Omen 17 laptop featuring the first Ada Lovelace mobile GPUs. The image, which appears to be a screen capture from a Romanian... Read more...
EVGA is auctioning off its own-brand GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card that never released to the public, with all proceeds going to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. While not quite a one-of-a-kind GPU, it's an extremely rare graphics card, in that EVGA severed ties with NVIDIA at the 11th hour leading up... Read more...
NVIDIA finds itself as the sole player in the next-gen GPU market with its GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card, and that will continue to be the case until AMD releases its Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT to retail next week. Interestingly, and maybe not coincidentally, NVIDIA just lowered the... Read more...
Did you think "ConnectorGate" was done? Think again, readers. Sure, Gamers Nexus went above and beyond the call of duty testing NVIDIA's 12VHPWR connector adapters for the GeForce RTX 4090 and determined the most likely causes of the failures, and sure, NVIDIA corroborated their findings with its own data. There's... Read more...
Update: EA has updated its guidance on how to resolve flashing and blinking display issues in Need for Speed Unbound, saying affected users should update their motherboard BIOS, not their GPU BIOS. "We've seen reports of flashing/blinking display issues with folks on high-end PCs (NVIDIA RTX 40-series). After... Read more...
There are a lot of exotic custom PC build concepts that we love to obsess over. Whether it’s a mineral oil aquarium bath or a steampunk bourbon barrel, PC building can be an incredible outlet for creativity and engineering. Integrating a high-end gaming PC into a desk is another fun challenge among these lines, and... Read more...
It's a bit of an open secret, but in case you're not aware, most processors these days are pushed far beyond the "sweet spot" in their voltage-to-frequency curve. That means that you can trim the voltage and reduce power consumption considerably while only dropping a bit of performance. On the already-efficient... Read more...
When AMD revealed its Radeon RX 7900 series GPUs early this month, its presentation focused on comparing against its own previous-generation parts. There were some comparisons to the GeForce RTX 4080 in the press materials, but nothing comparing their parts to the GeForce RTX 4090. That may change may have been made... Read more...
Publicity is a hell of a thing. By all the data we have, incidents of melting 12VHPWR connectors on GeForce RTX 4090s are vanishingly rare. Despite that, everyone knows exactly what Sasa Marinkovic (AMD's Senior Director of Gaming Marketing) is implying with his tweet, which we'll reproduce below. In case you're... Read more...
There's been much ado in the DIY PC hardware space about the issue of the new ATX 3.0 and PCIe 5.0 12+4-pin peripheral power connector melting on GeForce RTX 4090 cards. There's a class-action lawsuit, AMD's managers are memeing on NVIDIA, and numerous outlets have rushed to publish their preliminary, unscientific... Read more...
Much has been written already, both here and elsewhere, about the issue of melting 12VHPWR connectors on GeForce RTX 4090 cards. If you're new to this topic, the shortest summary is that recent GeForce cards use a new type of auxiliary power connector, and those connectors have been smoking and melting for a few...

The GeForce RTX 4090 has gotten a lot of bad press since its launch due to the 12VHPWR adapters and native cables driving the card overheating and melting. In reality, this problem seems to have been confined to a fairly small fraction of users, but it's still concerning nonetheless. NVIDIA hasn't said anything on the... Read more...
The GeForce RTX 4090 is the fastest GPU around; of that, there's no question. However, Galax wants to lay to rest the idea that anyone's GeForce is faster than the RTX 4090 HOF. Galax hasn't told us that, but it's clear to see from the way that the company is knocking down benchmark world records like they're bowling... Read more...
NVIDIA's hardware partners have a little bit of pricing wiggle room between the GeForce RTX 4080 (the real one) and GeForce RTX 4090, with $400 separating their $1,199 and $1,599 MSRPs, respectively. As is typically the case, you can expect some factory-overclocked and custom-cooled GeForce RTX 4080 cards to come with... Read more...
NVIDIA's recent high-end graphics cards from the GeForce RTX 3000 and 4000 series use a new 12 or 16-pin connector that is known as 12VHPWR. The implementation of the connector on the RTX 3000 cards was fine, but since the release of the GeForce RTX 4090, some users have been experiencing melting connectors and burned... Read more...
Chinese graphics card maker Manli has prepared an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 design in a surprising form factor, producing a (relatively) slim blower cooled model. This is surprising on two fronts: firstly, the Ada Lovelace architecture RTX 4090 has pushed AIB partners to create some of the largest air cooling solutions... Read more...
Remember that ridiculous GALAX GeForce RTX 4090 HOF we told you about a few days ago? To the surprise of absolutely no one, that card has now been crowned the fastest GPU in the world thanks to some benchmarks performed under liquid nitrogen by hardy overclockers. Elite overclocker OGS from Greece currently holds... Read more...
Intel and NVIDIA may not see eye-to-eye on Moore's Law, but that doesn't mean the two don't pair well together, in terms of hardware combinations. As such, MSI is rolling out a high-powered gaming desktop that pairs flagship components from both companies—an Intel Core i9-13900K processor based on Raptor Lake and a... Read more...
