GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3090 Ampere Eagle OC and Gaming OC Pictured

Here are the first pictures of the GeForce RTX 3090 "Ampere" Eagle OC and Gaming OC custom-design graphics cards by GIGABYTE. Both cards implement the company's latest generation WindForce 3X cooling solution that's triple-slot, featuring a trio of fans, and varying grades of factory overclocked speeds. The Eagle OC SKU could be positioned slightly above the Gaming OC SKU. Above the two, GIGABYTE could position its coveted AORUS Gaming branded graphics card. It's been established from yesterday's Gainward leaks, that 24 GB is the standard memory size for the RTX 3090, while 10 GB is standard for the RTX 3080.

This has got to be leakest Nvidia GPU release so far.

All of these leaks are very unlike Nvidia, typically there is absolutely no information at all until days or a few weeks before the launch. Wonder why they felt the need to get people talking about these things for so long ...

Why wouldn't this be Aorus? Not using the prime names this go-round? Or is this a budget one?

ASUS also sent out a press release early. Confirmed upto 1.9X perf/watt (still remains to be seen on what, exactly) and September availability for 3090/3080/3070. They also mention it being "the greatest GPU generational leap in the history of NVIDIA".

My guess is 1.9x is in a RTX context, otherwise 3090 is an absolute monster with +50% IPC or something lol

I still suspect today is launch day. we will find out in a few hours anyway.

I have a feeling Big Navi is the 2080 ti killer Lisa Su said it would be, and Nvidia needs to you spend that money asap before big navi 2 hits shelves in November or late October :D

Hope it isn't just a 2080ti killer

If it is priced competitively I suspect it will be enough for most. I certainly don’t want a 320w+ card in my computer.

Looks like the 3070 is already the 2080 TI killer.. not to mention the 3080 and 3090.

So far the founder's edition is the best design I have seen on a GPU.. Gigabyte is disgusting as always and cheap looking.. so far the other partners have disgusting designs as well.

How good do you look? Asking for a friend.

I will say that my best performing video cards have been Gigabyte. No failures. I currently have an EVGA 2080ti in my main rig though.

If I were shopping for one I'd check and see how it's made, setup and so on, not just how it looks since I woudn't see it when in use anyway......
I'd be too busy looking at the monitor.

Didn't affect me, I didn't visit any tech site, haha, no spoilers, enjoyed the presentation to it's fullest natural way, problem solved :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p

Why didn't I do this before - this will be the standard procedure 2-4 weeks prior to release when hype is huge:

I read basically every leak, and still enjoyed the presentation ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Good products at a reasonable price, so I'm happy.

But you cannot understand, you're happy because you want the hardware, you are a fan, I am not, I'm not looking forward to the hardware (no need, budget, don't care about latest games), and therefore to me it doesn't matter what the specs are, but if the specs were bad you would also be disappointed most likely, whether or not it was leaked or not, but in my case I would be disappointed only if it was revealed to me ahead of the presentation.

I know it's a niche usecase. Besides, I don't even have any games installed right now, doing some maintenance, data archival, enjoying the summer, relaxing, I keep an eye on major news and that's it, but I don't have that obsessive drive to play that game or get that GPU, that's why leaks are enjoyable to such people, because it's all about playing to them, and a leak makes them feel they're closer to that. Which just confirms what I figured out in the first place, that these kind of peolpe are just obsessed sugar-crazed doritos-filled teenage gamerz who desperately need a fix of electronic cocaine or in other words entertainment, more or less.

While I got my "entertainment" from the presentation, that's little a tiny nugget in comparison to the whole life experience really, gaming tech is the smallest hobby I spend my time on, to put this into perspective. The presentation is one of the things I can potentially benefit from, since it's already established I don't care about the product or the games. I broke no sweat waiting for it, and didn't even had to pay for it, thanks Nvidia.

But what's the bottom line, it's life, it's health, I'm more happy and more satisifed with like a lot more health, spending a fraction of the money an average gamer does, and since I'm not playing I don't waste any of the time and do more important things. Sure I do play, just more like 5% of what most people do, being enthusiastic is one thing, being obsessed to the point it causes stress is another. Teenagerz have no idea how much nerves they spend on so much crap, how much of health is being exchanged for daily nonsenses, it is such a big deal that some doctors say "70% of health is stress". The emotional state you're at determines the immune system capacity, you're streessed out, boom there goes 50% of your immune system down the drain, until you calm down, let's not even attempt to go near chronic stress. No wonder people are diseased when they turn 30 ... totally devastated by this crazy fast-paced life culture.

OK, Boomer. Way to bring the mood down, jeez. I didn't ask for your life story. If you don't care, just don't comment..

I don't think so, he never mentioned the looks of the card might be a legit question :D
