Nvidia's first GeForce RTX 4090 PC build video confirms rumours about its colossal size
Even though Nvidia officially unveiled the GeForce RTX 4090 today and even provided its physical dimensions, it is hard to tell how it will fit in with the rest of a PC, based on that alone. Previous leaks portraying the graphics card speculated that it would be just as colossal as its predecessor. Now, Nvidia has shown off a build video featuring the Ada Lovelace flagship in action.
Nvidia teamed up with professional PC builders LiquidHaus for the endeavour. One couldn't help but notice Nvidia using an EVGA motherboard for demonstration. It is supremely ironic, given the recent spat between the two companies. As the video goes on, the true scale of the GeForce RTX 4090 becomes apparent. It takes three screws to secure the graphics card to the case. Asus took it to the next level by fitting one of its RTX 4090 models to a mini-ITX motherboar in its promotional material.
Furthermore, one also loses access to two PCI-e slots, meaning that streamers will have to use some creative workarounds to throw a dedicated capture card into their build. While the GeForce RTX 4090 FE in question here doesn't sag, it won't be the same in many cases, forcing gamers to invest in a GPU bracket. Another problem will be getting the graphics card to fit in smaller PC cases. One will now have to upgrade their chassis and power supply to channel the full power of the GeForce RTX 4090, which, at US$1,499 (almost US$2,000 in Europe), isn't cheap.
