The RTX 4090 (Behemoth) Replace


Behold, friends-with-big-wallets: the most important, heaviest, most costly, most power-consuming, and *drumroll* best-performing card ever made!

Allow us to take a better look.

The Good Stuff


    • Just one card has been launched, the RTX 4090
    • Unimaginable efficiency, beating the following neatest thing by a minimum of 50%
    • Simply hitting 120+ FPS on 4K in most video games with max particulars
    • Card temperatures are (very surprisingly) good!
    • Noise ranges are respectable

Wow, sounds terrific! What might the downsides probably be… ?


The Meh Stuff


It’s all excellent news and unhealthy information for this card, with little or no actually impartial information. The 4090 might be going to be a divisive element amongst builders.


The Dangerous Stuff


    • The explanation the cardboard runs cool and quiet is as a result of it has a gigantic cooler
    • The worth is $1600
    • Three slots (or 4 with customized playing cards), 2kg (4.5lbs), and so big it won’t slot in regular mid-tower instances
    • The worth is $1600
    • It could actually draw 450W of energy, or as much as 600W should you let it
    • The worth is $1600

And that’s the launch in a nutshell: A particularly highly effective and surprisingly thermally steady card… but in addition an especially giant, power-hungry, and expensive card!


Going Ahead


We will likely be recommending the RTX 4090 in each the Extremist and Monstrous tiers of our main chart. A couple of different GPU/CPU adjustments have been applied as properly.

All adjustments are summarized as follows:

GPU adjustments:

    • Added RX 6500 XT to Honest (as an choice)
    • Added RX 6750 XT, RTX 3070 to Very good
    • Added RX 6800, RTX 3070 Ti to Glorious
    • Added RX 6800 XT, RTX 3080 to Excellent
    • Added RX 6900 XT, RTX 3080 Ti to Distinctive
    • Added RX 6950 XT, RTX 3090 to Fanatic
    • Added RTX 3090 Ti, RTX 4090 to Extremist
    • Added RTX 4090 to Monstrous

CPU adjustments:

    • Eliminated Threadripper 3960X from Monstrous

All of those adjustments have already gone dwell on the USA chart, and can roll out to different international locations because the 4090 turns into accessible globally.

In case you are Staff Purple, new competing playing cards are only a few weeks away.
