These graphics cards are so pricey that they might actually stay in stock.
What you need to know
- The Galax RTX 3090 GPU lineup is currently listed with a starting price of AUD 3899 (roughly $3,014).
- The GPU lineup has custom parts, including RGB lighting and an LCD panel to show card vitals.
- It's unclear at this point how much the cards will cost in the U.S.
The best graphics cards for PCs are never cheap, but the Galax GeForce RTX 3090 HOF lineup of GPUs takes it to another level. The powerful graphics cards appear on MWave's website with a starting price of AUD 3,899 (roughly $3,014). The most expensive of the cards costs AUD 4,499 (roughly $3,478) (via Tom's Hardware).
Since these prices are for an Australian retailer, they don't reflect the exact cost that the GPUs will cost in the U.S. In addition to conversion rates changing over time, electronics don't usually cost the exact conversion of a price when moving between countries. Even if the GPUs cost less than the converted prices, they're still going to be some of the most expensive graphics cards on the market.
There are three models of the Galax GeForce RTX 3090 HOF GPU on MWave's website. There's the normal HOF version, the HOF Limited Edition, and the HOF Premium. The normal and Premium HOF versions have boost frequencies of 1815 MHz, while the Limited Edition has a boost clock speed of 1875 MHz.
For the whopping prices of the cards, you don't just get the RTX 3090, which is an extremely powerful GPU. You also get RGB lighting, a custom 12-layer PCB, and a 14+8+4-phase power delivery system.
Depending on the model you choose, you also get a 4.3-inch TFT LCD monitor that shows the vitals of the graphics card.
