NVIDIA only just unveiled their next-gen GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card, but the official release isn't for another couple of weeks -- October 12 to be precise -- but this hasn't stopped GIGABYTE's custom RTX 4090 graphics cards from hitting the market in Hong Kong early.

GIGABYTE's upcoming custom GeForce RTX 4090 GAMING OC 24G graphics card has turned up in Hong Kong for around 20,000 HK (around $2548 USD or so) which is quite the premium: nearly $1000 USD over the MSRP of the RTX 4090 at $1599.

GIGABYTE's new custom GeForce RTX 4090 GAMING OC, but in the flesh in Hong Kong

But there's something to remember here: there are no GeForce drivers that are compatible with the GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards just yet, so this would be an expensive (but very pretty) paperweight, at least for now. NVIDIA will be pushing out Ada Lovelace compatible GeForce drivers soon, while the public release of those drivers should take place on October 12, the day that NVIDIA launches the GeForce RTX 4090.

I didn't think we'd see actual GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards for sale this early, normally we get a bit of a tease, but if people have their hands-on these cards two weeks before the launch... wow. As I said above, it'll be a very expensive paperweight for now. Still, you'll have major internet bragging points, fo sho.
