ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 Ampere Pictured

Here's a much clearer picture of the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 "Ampere" graphics card by ASUS. A render of this card was revealed back in July, when the RTX 3090 was still speculated to be called the "RTX 3080 Ti." The card features the latest iteration of the ROG Strix design scheme by ASUS, with more shiny metal bits that conceal lighting elements. The cooler features a chunky aluminium fin-stack heatsink that's ventilated by three Axial-Tech fans. The card is 3 slots thick, and about an inch taller than what would constitute "full height." VideoCardz, which is also the source of the image, predicts that ASUS could use same board design for both the RTX 3090 and the RTX 3080. We've seen custom-design RTX 3090 cards featuring as many as three 8-pin PCIe power inputs, while those based on the RTX 3080 have been shown with two. With the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 being based on the common silicon, the GA102, differing in memory and core configurations, the R&D costs for custom-design board partners is greatly reduced.

Isn't that the point of a forum? I think you're missing the point. If you don't care, don't comment.

The point of the forum is to discuss the articles, not to flex post your way to imaginary e-peen points by saying you'll buy what will probably be the most expensive AIB 3090 that will be available.

No one cares.

Not really, you think this forum is about telling others what products you will and will not buy?
I mean Im interested that you are buying this one ONLY if you would explain why.

For example: Do you expect good things from the cooling? and if so why?
Do you have good experience with Asus? and if so what experience is that?
Do you have bad experience with other brands?
Why not just get Nvidia's own founders edition?

Why are you getting this in the first place, what do you need/want it for?

etc etc etc.


Its like an old book report for school where you are taught to not just say "I liked it".
That sort of answer/statement does not help anyone, we need to know WHY you liked it, then we have something to discuss or understand and know if that same mindset applies to us so we would know if we are interested or not.
"I liked it because the main character is a fox and i love foxes", ok great, well I dont particulairy care for foxes so if that is the only reason, I know that I should not really bother with this book based on that review.

phew: long explanation over.

Above all: Prior to having even the vaguest idea of what the GPU will even be capable of.

+1 couldn't have said it better.

Aesthetically far more pleasing than both Gainward and Zotac offerings (the plain model isn't bad, but I still dig Super AMP). My tastes might be edgy and appearance shouldn't matter, but I can't stand how they look more like a toys, instead of "mechanical" like shroud.

Still just about possible to SLI those if you're bonkers enough. 3-slots wide and 1 slot breathing room means you can juuuuuust about squeeze two onto a suitable motherboard and extended E-ATX case with 8 expansion slots.

No.
I dislike angular plastic decorative crap too. It does nothing for airflow, it cheapens the look of the card, and it doesn't match anything else in the PC except possibly the garish decals and decorative plastic crap Asus also bolt to their motherboards.

Like it or not, Asian fashion and style is very different to what the Western world likes, but all of the major GPU and Motherboard brands are Asian. If you want an example of Western styling, you get much more minimal designs like AMD and Nvidia reference coolers or Apple's entire product stack.

dunno, looks nicer than the current strix design to me (had an RTX strix card my self until recently) not that you ever really see the underside of the card, more interested in the backside, wasn't a huuge fan of the backplate strix eye logo thing lighting up , something more discreet would be nice here.

I care dude. It's okay to share ideas and PREFERENCES on forums including this one. Don't let anyone with a negative attitude curb your excitement or your ability to express it. If they have nothing better to do than to try to bring you down because you know, THE INTERNET, let them stay in their dark, cynical hole and continue to smile and express your opinion and excitement.

I'm personally considering this card as well, due to my Livingroom 1080ti being a Strix card and working perfectly since launch day. The Zotac 3090 is also on my list of possibles, due to my Bedroom Zotac 1080ti mini performing nearly as well for the past year and a half and the RGB on the new card looking sick. My only hesitation from an instant buy is not knowing the definite price (until tomorrow) and any reliable spec or performance info on Big Navi. Thoughts?

Nope. The bathroom spot is reserved for the soon to be announced 3090TI. Think I'll squeeze an 8K monitor in there to add to the fun.

Looking at the fans, I like the way all the fin tips are joined together. I've seen testing that shows such a fin structure on fans reduces noise by stabilizing airflow. It'll be interesting to see product tests on this.

The "TGP" is set around 350W. Good luck cooling that with a 2 slotted version.

LOL! If that's what you want to use it for, it's your money. Look at it this way, you could likely run 5 or 6 hundred instances of ZSNES or SNES9x with the beast that will be the RTX3090! You could effectively run the whole of the North American SNES Library at once! :rockout:
