Breath taking performance for a breath taking price

Let me just say that this is an incredible GPU that ASUS did a great job with. It will tear through anything and gladly ask for more. There isn't a game that I've played that didn't get at the VERY minimum 60fps even at 4k. And you can ridicule it for its high price, sure, but certainly not for its performance. As for the noise level, coil whine can be an issue at times but honestly if you're wearing headphones and listening to something you might not hear it or be focused on it. Thermals are great too, I was shocked at how well it maintained a (relatively) low temperature. I don't think I've seen it break 60C yet. So if you're an enthusiast where price isn't an object, I would recommend this product.

Top of the line for virtual reality.

An outstanding GPU, if a little overpriced. I upgraded from the 3080FE 10GB edition. The notable improvements that made me make the switch:

24GB of VRAM. The 10GB of the original launch 3080 just isn't enough unfortunately. The latest consoles have much more RAM available to them, and games will be developed with those resources in mind. If you have a 3080 12GB, or more VRAM, then I don't think this is a worthwhile upgrade at this point.

Dual AV1 encoders for wireless content/streaming. This is critical if you are a streamer or, like me, play wireless virtual reality games. AV1 is a brand new codec not available on any GPUs outside of the 4000 series Nvidia cards and the 7000 series AMD cards. Even within the Nvidia lineup, only the 4070Ti and up have two encoders, the rest only have one. This is a huge improvement for wireless Virtual Reality when paired with a headset that has an AV1 decoder, like the new Quest 3.

I bought this behemoth because I wanted the latest and greatest wireless PC virtual reality experience. And this has not let me down.

If you are not that big of an enthusiast, save your money.

Best GPU on the market, but not for everyone!

No other card on the market can compete with the 4090. But you are going to pay a hefty price for that power. I have owned the card for several months and have gamed on it extensively. Every game I throw at it the temperature does not go above 50c and the fans are barely audible and sometimes do not come on because the card does not get very hot.

I have the card running of a 1000 watt power supply but even if you have lower wattage power supply you should not have any problems. To get the best performance and power usage out of the card, i set the power limit to 80%. Who knows what the card is capable of if I take off the power limit, it can probably simulate the beginning of the universe.

Now who can benefit the most from this card? Well, if you use your graphics card for work or play games at 4k with high refresh rates, then this is the GPU for you. If you are not one of the aforementioned groups do yourself a favor and get something more economical and put the rest of your money into a high-quality monitor. With that said if you have the funds and don't mind pay the premium price, you will not be disappointed with this card, it truly is a phenomenal GPU.

The "Reality-bender" RTX 4090

Say hello to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, the swaggering new kid on the block who took a look at the rule book, cackled, and ripped it to shreds. This isn't just a graphics card, folks. It's an AI-enhanced, supercharged gorilla that guzzled a keg of espresso and decided to redefine reality, one pixel at a time.

The speed of this thing? Let's put it this way: if the RTX 4090 were in a footrace with Usain Bolt, Bolt would still be tying his shoelaces while the 4090 would be sipping a piña colada on the moon. Heat? Forget about it. This card is cooler than Sinatra on an iceberg. Noise? Less than a vegan at a steakhouse.

The realism this baby delivers is so intense, you might start questioning the authenticity of your own reflection. You think you've seen ray tracing? The RTX 4090 will make you believe you've been living in a cave all these years. The downside? The price tag might convince you to sell a kidney on eBay. But look on the bright side - you won't need 3D glasses anymore, or anything else once you’ve ridden this beast. So, buckle up, humans. The RTX 4090 is here to render your reality obsolete

It's a 4090 - nuff said

Not going to bore you with how amazing it is - it's a 4090, you know the score with this GPU. It's flagship atm and is the king of the hill.

This particular card - being cheaper and by a brand most gamers associate as no thrills, I believe is similar, if not the same as the Gainward variant of a similar price. It does what it says on the box as do all 4090 cards!

I am running this on stock clocks but have reduced the power consumption. It reports between 275-330 watts for the GPU power consumption only depending on the game - there isn't much performance drop in my view.

It runs nice and cool compared to my 1080 Ti or the 7900XTX I RMA'd - so I'm a bit sad I will have to turn the heating on in winter to heat my room instead of relying on the GPU to do the job lol. I upgraded to a 1000W PSU but I'm pretty sure my 850W would have been up to the job - my system consumes about ~500W from the wall when gaming.

The fans are quietish - I can *kind of* hear them when I game, very faintly, I think my noctual cpu fan is louder. There is absolutely no coil whine with this card.

Like I said, no thrills and does the job. I would recommend.

Monster GPU in both size and power

I've used this GPU for almost a year now and it's an absolute beast. I don't regret buying it in the slightest.

+ Almost all but the most demanding (Cyberpunk) or unoptimized (Starfield) games can be played at 4K/144 FPS/Ultra.

+ Runs very cool. Barely cracks 70°C even under 100% load for over an hour.

+ Looks sleek without having that "EDGY GAMER™" look almost all of the AIBs have.

+ Sturdy. The I/O bracket is extremely rigid and entirely eliminates GPU sag from what I can tell.

- Overpriced. Sure, it destroys nearly any game at 4K/120+FPS/Ultra, but that doesn't justify the price tag. I would 100% not recommend buying this GPU unless you can comfortably afford it.

- Big. Barely fits in most cases by itself, and the native 12VHPWR cable not having a 90° bend makes it nearly impossible to fit in anything other than a mid/full size case.

- Heavy. Weighs a whopping 5 lbs.

- Power hungry. Expect to need a 850W+ PSU.

Overall, if you don't like compromise and just want to throw everything on Ultra and forget about it, this is the card to get.
