Video card GeForce RTX 4090 is prohibited for sale in China. And despite the fact that there is already a special version of RTX 4090D, many users want the regular model, which has led to quite a busy situation.

Recently, sales of RTX 4090 have grown strongly in various Asian countries, including Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Vietnam and others. These video cards are bought there for resale in China.

Moreover, in many cases, Chinese sellers buy completely ready-made gaming PCs with RTX 4090 in order to extract the video card from there and sell it separately at a higher markup.

The finished PC with RTX 4090 cost about 4450 dollars, but this did not stop the buyer.
