Expectations are high for the Lovelace GeForce RTX 40 series of graphics cards from Nvidia, and it seems price predictions are similarly high. There have been a few suggestions that the top-end GeForce RTX 4090 card could end up being stuck with an MSRP of US$2,999, leaving it likely out of reach for the majority of gamers.

A list of price predictions for the RTX 40 series of graphics cards has been posted by the content creator Graphically Challenged, who is known for his regular YouTube video updates concerning GPUs. He hasn’t claimed that it is a leak or tip from an insider, and he makes it clear that these are MSRP price predictions. While the potential Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 and RTX 4060 sit at reasonable price points, the estimate for the RTX 4090 is clearly prohibitive for many:

GeForce SKU Predicted price
RTX 4090 US$2,999
RTX 4080 Ti US$1,999
RTX 4080 US$1,199
RTX 4070 US$799
RTX 4060 Ti US$499
RTX 4060 US$399
RTX 4050 Ti US$329
RTX 4050 US$279

Of course, if crypto miners are in the market for RTX 40 series cards and the chip shortage is still affecting availability by launch time (possibly October 2022) then the MSRP will rapidly become a forlorn hope and memory for gamers and DIY PC builders. Scalpers and profit-hungry retailers would soon push prices even further.

However, asking prices for RTX 30 series cards from Nvidia and Radeon RX 6000 cards from AMD have been reportedly falling as of late, and Intel should soon be entering the fray with its DG2 offering that should make the market more competitive for buyers. So the figures from Graphically Challenged may be too pessimistic, with US$1,999 to US$2,500 arguably being a more likely price range for the GeForce RTX 4090.

Official prices for the RTX 40 series cards won’t be decided by Nvidia until the very last moment as the graphics card market is certainly volatile and Team Green will want to price its products accordingly. However, it is rumored that the Lovelace GPU-based RTX 40 series could offer twice the performance of current Ampere RTX 30 parts – so maybe twice the price for the flagship RTX 4090 model isn't as improbable as it first seems.
