According to the VideoCardz portal, graphics card manufacturers have only recently started sending out samples of their new products to reviewers. Some of them have already received cards, including reference versions of the Founders Edition from NVIDIA itself. However, it’s important to note that neither reviewers nor early buyers can take full advantage of them now, as NVIDIA hasn’t released the necessary graphics drivers for new graphics cards yet ensure the full functionality and performance of new products.

The required driver will not be publicly available until October 12, when the cards officially go on sale. For browsers, NVIDIA will provide the necessary driver later this week, VideoCardz said.


The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 Geming OC Kit, as well as all other versions of the graphics card of this model, includes a special adapter from four 8-pin power connectors to a new 12 + 4-pin PCIe 5.0 connector. This allows you to transmit up to 600 watts of power to the graphics card.

The GeForce RTX 4090 itself is based on the AD102-300 GPU on the architecture of Ada Lovelace with 16,384 CUDA cores, manufactured with TSMC 4N 5nm process technology. The card received 24 GB of GDDR6X memory.

The price of this particular version of Gigabyte’s GeForce RTX 4090 is unknown. It will likely be higher than the recommended $1599 for the reference version of the accelerator. The buyer of the card did not say how much he paid for it.
