Nvidia RTX 4090 laptop GPU price revealed – and it’s seriously expensive

Nvidia’s RTX 4090 laptop GPU was revealed at CES 2023, but if you want this power-packed graphics card, how much will it cost you? The unsurprising answer is a small fortune, going by the price of an upgrade to the RTX 4090 on an XMG gaming laptop.

VideoCardz spotted that in a YouTube video from Jarrod’sTech, pricing is listed for the various RTX 40 Series graphics card options that buyers can choose from when purchasing XMG’s Neo 16, an incoming gaming portable packing Intel’s Core i9-13900HX Raptor Lake CPU (and a whole load of other high-end goodies).

The base model of the Neo 16 comes with the RTX 4060, retailing at €2,199 (around $2,360, £1,940, AU$3,420). If you want to upgrade that to the RTX 4090, the cost is a whopping €1,687 (around $1,810, £1,490, AU$2,630).

XMG’s prices for other Nvidia Lovelace GPUs come to a relatively palatable €375 (around $400, £330, AU$580) for the RTX 4070, but then the RTX 4080 is pitched at €1,050 (around $1,130, £930, AU$1,640).

The Neo 16, and other RTX 40 Series laptops, will be out in February.

Analysis: Pushing the boundaries of pricing (again)

Nvidia’s newly revealed GPUs are pricey, you say? Well, who’d have believed it…

Of course, the fact that the RTX 4090 is expensive in its laptop incarnation is hardly a shock, and again looking at the desktop pricing, the RTX 4080 also being a big financial ask is similarly predictable.

If we consider the total cost of the RTX 4090 going by XMG’s pricing, the cost of the upgrade is almost €1,700 as mentioned, but for the total theoretical price, we must also consider that you’re already paying for the RTX 4060 in the entry-level model’s price tag – so we can bung that on top.

Meaning that the RTX 4090 laptop GPU must come close to two grand in Euros, and that’s about the asking price for the a desktop RTX 4090 (at major German retailer MindFactory, at the time of writing). So, one way to look at this is the laptop version of this GPU is just as expensive as the desktop incarnation’s eye-watering price tag.

And of course, the laptop take on the Lovelace flagship isn’t nearly as performant as the desktop card – it draws a lot less wattage, of course, at 150W TGP (plus a 25W dynamic boost) – but what you’re paying for here is the ability to fit as much power as possible into a relatively small case (a laptop chassis).

Still, the question remains – do you really want to fork out that much for a notebook graphics card? One that has the same CUDA Core count as the RTX 4080 desktop, and likely similar performance to that card (in a best-case scenario, it’s perhaps a bit slower in the main). You can bet there are folks out there already reaching for their wallets, though…

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
