Colorful presents the most expensive version of the card from the brandGeForce, Maybe ever since
Chinese Colorful's KUDAN brand has been used for years to mark the most prestigious and sophisticated models imaginable in the graphics processing market, even before the days when any logical connection between the recommended prices and the real market prices was cut and disconnected - and now it's the turn of theAmpere The most sophisticated to undergo its own premium treatment, which ends with an official announcement at an inconceivable price that provides further strong evidence of the strange situation in which the world of semiconductors currently finds itself.
The iGame GeForce RTX 3090 KUDAN features a handsome black and gold metallic design with a variety of decorative sprockets on the front that transmit a different style from most of the latest gaming cards that adopt more futuristic designs - though the most interesting part is its massive hybrid cooling array consisting of three 90 millimeters with 6 heat conduction tubes 6 millimeters in diameter, plus to the system Cooling Water in a closed circuit with a 240 millimeter radiator used to remove the heat generated.
It is difficult to decide whether even theRTX 3090, for all its processing power, needs such a dual array - but the technology allows the manufacturer to increase the maximum operating frequency of the core by about 10 percent, from 1,695 MHz to 1,860 MHz, so there may be no point in arguing with the results in the field (at least until we see Reviews of the luxury product compared to versions RTX More popular.
Another interesting bonus inRTX The 3090 KUDAN is a large, colorful built-in screen with a refresh rate of 60 Hz designed to display readings from the built-in gauges on the unit - and can be placed at a 90-degree angle to the card itself for better compatibility with most types of cases on the market. Human engineering at its best.
Beyond the shell of pleasure, the complicated cooling and the built-in colorful illumination, this is a well-known RTX 3090, with the same 10,496 active CUDA units in the GA102 core and also 24GB of memory Fast GDDR6X - Then you come to the pricing line, which stands at 39,999 Chinese yuan and $ 4,999. Excluding tax.
This is not a mistake in converting from one currency to another: Colorful declares that it will produce only 1,000 units of this KUDAN model, and therefore allows itself to set a price tag 3 times higher than the original recommended price tag of theRTX 3090, which is itself considered a significant exaggeration at launch at about nine months ago.
Despite the huge pricing, which stands at NIS 16,330 in direct conversion (again, without taking into account tax surcharges that can bring us a spitting distance of NIS 20,000), it can be estimated that the limited stock of graphic cards Of all kinds around the world and the even more limited stock of this specific model will lead to an onslaught that will increase the stock very quickly - and we have no choice but to wonder if we will ever be able to go back to the days when the most advanced video cards sold for less than $ 1,000 and were available to almost anyone. .
