This absurd PC with 7 RTX 4090s costs an eye-watering $31,600

Given its sky-high price, it’s safe to say most people do not own an Nvidia RTX 4090 GPU, despite it being one of the best graphics cards you can buy. At $1,499 a pop, it costs more than most PCs, yet one company has just launched a monstrous computer kitted out with no less than seven RTX 4090s. The asking price? A mere 28,999 euros, or roughly $31,600.

Dreamed up by German PC builder Mifcom, the appropriately named Big Boss not only stacks in seven of Nvidia’s most powerful graphics cards but fits each of them with a watercooler too. Those GPUs bring a combined 168GB of video memory to the table for an absolutely absurd amount of power.

That’s all complemented by a 64-core Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX CPU worth approximately $6,499, 128GB of RAM, and 4TB of SSD storage. Those are all extremely powerful parts, but it’s the GPU array that makes this a luxury setup that feels ostentatious and almost ridiculous.

MIfcom has stated, however, that the RTX 4090s run at 300W — a third less than their maximum 450W power draw — as running them all at full tilt simply wouldn’t be possible given the enormous power requirements involved. Indeed, the Big Boss packs in not one but two 2000W power supplies to handle the gargantuan requirements of its components.

Not for your average gamer

Clearly, this kind of colossus is not designed for your average gamer looking to while away the hours on Stardew Valley. Instead, it’ll be aimed squarely at people needing a high-end machine for video rendering, machine learning, and other demanding workloads.

And while the price may seem incredibly steep, it’s not that unusual in the world of top-spec computing. Apple’s Mac Pro, for example, comes in at $12,348 if you equip it with all of the most powerful options available, and we very much doubt it could match the graphical output of seven RTX 4090s. Before the transition to Apple silicon, a maxed-out Mac Pro would set you back over $52,000.

Despite all the power, Mifcom says it makes the Big Boss “without flashy lighting” for a “discreet look.” So at least you won’t be blinded by rainbow lights when you empty your wallet for one of these machines.

Still, it’s not exactly going to be flying off the shelves at your local PC hardware store. At a time of rising living costs, most average computer users will likely take one look at the Big Boss’s price tag and wince. But we’re sure there will be plenty of extremely demanding pro users looking at this machine with interest.

Using an RTX 3060? Here’s the GPU to upgrade to next
EVGA RTX 3060 sitting on a table.

Nvidia's RTX 3060 is a certified legend. It's the most popular graphics card in gaming PCs, according to the Steam hardware survey, and that makes sense. For gamers playing at 1080p, you can't ask for more than what the RTX 3060 offers between its low price, 12GB of VRAM, and features like Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

But where do you go from there? If you picked up an RTX 3060 over the last couple of years and you're looking to take your PC gaming to the next level, I rounded up the best GPUs to upgrade to from the RTX 3060.

Why I’m feeling hopeful about Nvidia’s RTX 50-series GPUs
The RTX 4070 Super on a pink background.

I won't lie -- I was pretty scared of Nvidia's RTX 50-series, and I stand by the opinion that those fears were valid. They didn't come out of thin air; they were fueled by Nvidia's approach to GPU pricing and value for the money.

However, the RTX 40 Super refresh is a step in the right direction, and it's one I never expected to happen. Nvidia's most recent choices show that it may have learned an important lesson, and that's good news for future generations of graphics cards.
The price of performance
Nvidia really didn't hold back in the RTX 40 series. It introduced some of the best graphics cards we've seen in a while, but raw performance isn't the only thing to consider when estimating the value of a GPU. The price is the second major factor and weighing it against performance can often tip the scales from "great" to "disappointing." That was the case with several GPUs in the Ada generation.

CableMod’s adapters damaged up to $74K worth of Nvidia GPUs
Melted 12VHPWR connector made by CableMod for the RTX 4090.

CableMod's adapters were meant to fix the problem of melting connectors on Nvidia's top GPU, the RTX 4090, but it appears that things didn't go as planned. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has posted a notice that the CableMod 12VHPWR angled adapters are being recalled due to fire and burn hazards. More than 25,300 adapters are to be returned, and the affected customers are eligible for a full refund.

The connectors on the RTX 4090 have been melting ever since the GPU hit the shelves in late 2022, and so far, the only fix seems to lie in careful installation and picking the right PC case that can accommodate this monstrous card. CableMod's angled adapters showed a lot of promise, at least initially. Seeing as bending the cable can contribute to the overheating, an angled adapter should have been just the fix -- but unfortunately, the melting continued, even with the use of CableMod's solution.
