The RTX 4090 graphics card is not for everyone. Ada Lovelace’s flagship graphics card consumes a lot of energy and produces a lot of heat, so large and heavy coolers are needed to cool it, coolers that take up a lot of space and cannot fit in every case. But what happens if someone wins such a graphics card in a festival or lottery? This is exactly what happened to One of 18 custom RTX 4090 NFS Edition GPUs has fallen.
RTX 4090 NFS Edition graphics card
Users who won a custom and limited production RTX 4090 NFS Edition graphics card during Nvidia festivals have the right to do whatever they like with their graphics card; Because they own it. It seems that one of these users has decided to sell his graphics card and use the money for other purposes. The RTX 4090 graphics card is the most expensive GeForce series graphics card so far, and its Founders Edition model is not always available; That’s why its price goes up to 2000 dollars on second-hand parts sales sites.
In January, Nvidia announced the RTX 4090 NFS Edition graphics card, which is basically the RTX 4090 Founders Edition graphics card with a special back tray. This back tray, which has a special design with the NFS Unbound scheme, is separately attached to the card and is not permanent. Currently, this set can be purchased in the Canadian market at a price of 3100 Canadian dollars for the graphics card and 100 dollars for the backplate.
Seeing such a graphics card on the second-hand market is not something that the 55 thousand registered users for this festival are happy about. But such a decision allows other users to have the opportunity to own a specific graphics card, and on the other hand, the original owner of the card can use the money from the sale of the card for more important work.
The RTX 4090 graphics card is not for everyone
Many gamers don’t even have a system that can host an RTX 4090 graphics card, and it’s not possible for them to upgrade their system to support this 450-watt monster. If someone is not able to use this card in their system, at least they can sell it at a good price in the second-hand market and use its money.
