‘RTX 4090’ Prototype Cooler On Sale for a Cool $120K

A prototype RTX 40-series graphics card cooler was recently spotted online being offered up for a whopping $120K USD. The cooler in question is the same “RTX 4090”-stamped design that has been repeatedly reported as a “Ti” and “Ada Titan” Founders Edition design, boasting a massive quadruple slot cooler design that appears to be a prototype design. The cooler is conspicuously stamped with ‘RTX 4090,’ but rampant speculation is that this could be used for other designs. In either case, the seller is only offering the cooler portion of the card without the PCB attached.

The cooler is reportedly being auctioned off at a Chinese marketplace known as Goofish, by someone using the handle “Hayaka.” The price is currently sitting at 888888 Yuan — which translates to just over $120K, but there is the possibility the price will go even higher if there are multiple willing buyers. The seller also showed off several pictures of the cooler in a Tweet, in an apparent move to confirm they have the actual product — and that it’s not a fake.
