Asus TUF Gaming TUF-RTX3090-24G-GAMING $1,499.99 Newegg

As per the leaked price lists, AIBs would be charging a hefty premium as much as $300 US for the fastest variants they have to offer. Starting with ASUS models, Best Buy has the models listed for $1799.99 US for the ROG STRIX OC variant while the EVGA FTW3 Ultra Gaming costs the same. For those who are looking for something closer to the MSRP of $1499 US, the ASUS TUF Gaming and EVGA XC3 series does exist but those may not offer the same cooling performance of factory OC which the top variants have to offer.

The TUF Gaming OC model has a price premium of $100 US over the non-OC model which is also quite significant. One can only imagine the prices for even higher-end variants such as the ASUS ROG Poseidon, MSI Lightning, EVGA Kingpin / Hydro & AORUS's Xtreme, just to name a few. Many AIBs have also yet to unveil the final clock speeds of their models.

ASUS just recently listed the final clocks for its ROG STRIX RTX 3080 OC graphics cards which would offer boost clocks of up to 1935 MHz, making it the fastest RTX 3080 but we don't know when the card hits the retail segment. The same can be said for the ROG STRIX RTX 3090 graphics card since we don't have confirmation if they will be available at launch or ship later.

EVGA's FTW3 model features a boost clock of 1800 MHz which is a 6.2% boost over the Founders Edition clock speeds. You'll be paying a $300 US premium not only for the higher factory overclock but also for the custom and triple-fan cooling solution that is featured over the card.
