People buy out all RTX4090, especially in Asia. They use them for AI. You could read some articles about it in the last few weeks. The Chinese market is bumping prices because of that, and many cards are redesigned to work with turbine-type coolers, so more of them are used in tighter cases. There should also be a special version for the Chinese market so it can solve all the problems with the IC embargo.
It's the "new BTC crisis" for gamers, but it affects almost only RTX4090 (for now).
It's surprising to me that prices would go up on the 4090 this late in its product cycle. I'd much rather see the prices going down.
