And not only to China
It turned out that not only the H800 and A800 accelerators, which China needs for development in the field of artificial intelligence, were subject to new US sanctions. Regular RTX 4090 is now also banned for the Chinese.
The US even banned deliveries to China of the GeForce RTX 4090
More precisely, the list includes the following Nvidia models: A100, A800, H100, H800, L40, L40S, and RTX 4090. Considering that the new rules are based on performance and TFLOPS per square meter. mm, probably the RTX 4090 is simply too powerful and therefore falls into the same category as specialized solutions.
It is also worth noting that it is not only China that will no longer be able to obtain such adapters. The ban also applies to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
If they stop supplying gaming RTX 4090 to China, these cards will probably skyrocket in price in this country.
