All RTX 3090 Models/Prices at UK Retailers – Are retailers hiking up prices?

Yesterday, Nvidia launched its RTX 3090 series of graphics cards, offering users 24GB of VRAM and over 10,000 CUDA cores. Sadly, retail stocks of Nvidia’s RTX 3090 graphics cards disappeared from online storefronts almost instantly, as GPU shipments failed to meet consumer demand. 

Right now, retailers are taking pre-orders for Nvidia’s RTX 3090 products, and we have decided to chart these prices to see how they line up with Nvidia’s RTX 3090 Founders Edition pricing, which is £1,399 in the UK. At the time, Scan UK and Ebuyer are not taking pre-orders or displaying retail pricing, which is why they are not present within the chart below. 

The cheapest aftermarket RTX 3090 graphics cards at UK retailers are currently available for pre-order for £1469.99, which is £70 higher than the cost of Nvidia’s Founders Edition. Based on our talks with AIB partners, we know that some of these RTX 3090 models have pre-order prices that are over £100 higher than their manufacturers MSRP prices. 

At this time, it looks like retailers are increasing the pricing of Nvidia RTX 3090 graphics cards due to high demand. This practice is common when product shortages take place, as retailers are for-profit operations and many consumers are willing to pay inflated prices. Our recommendation is that consumers wait for this supply/demand situation to levels out, which will bring these graphics cards closer to their MSRP pricing. That said, if you see the utility in having 24GB of VRAM and don’t mind paying the extra money, go nuts; it’s your money.  

Yesterday, we released reviews for Gigabyte’s RTX 3090 Gaming OC model and MSI’s RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio model. We hope to test Nvidia’s RTX 3090 Founders Edition at a later date. 

In the UK, pricing for Nvidia’s RTX 3090 appears to be consistent across several retailers, with the largest variance being £110 when comparing identical models at different retailers. For the RTX 3090, this pricing variance is less than 10% of Nvidia’s RTX 3090 Founders Edition MSRP.

For Nvidia’s RTX 30 series, Inno3D has created a variety of products, all of which are available to pre-order in the UK for relatively low prices when compared to their competitors.

On the high-end, Inno3D has created a unique quad-fan model called the RTX 3090 iChill X4, giving their heatsink a unique aesthetic and potentially more cooling capability than their less expensive X3 series models.

Based on the images of this graphics card that we have, KF2A appears to have created one of the few quad-fan RTX 3090 models on the market, offering a unique push/pull configuration on the rear of the graphics card. This additional fan appears to be optional.
