The EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra comes with a massive triple-slot, triple-fan cooler that makes it the quietest RTX 3090 we've ever tested. Gaming noise levels are comparable to mid-range cards from a few years ago, but performance is like 300% higher, very impressive.

how can you say the quietest without comparing it directly to other board partner 3090s like strix oc?

I'm still not a fan of evert nvidia card getting a "highly recommended" award - $1800 for this card. This thing is NOT $300 better then the Gigabyte or $200 more then MSI Trio


It takes away value from those award when every single nvidia card gets ono... as is, I even stopped paying attention to them.

The idea is "which RTX 3090 would you recommend?" Obviously if someone can't afford it, it's not for him

Thx for the review on pancake monitor gaming haha.

Been loving mine since purchase. CUDA 11 still have a few kinks to work out but so far scientific computing performance on this has been nothing short of amazing.

@W1zzard on the overclocking page you had EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra @ 400 W . I think you meant 450Watt right? That is the default 107% power slider.

If the Kingpin had been available on day one, I'd have taken that, with its liquid cooler over everything else (except a Founders 3090) even at $2000.

It would be nice if EVGA also made AMD cards.

Is that before or after the 13% tax?

Damn right it's the quietest. At $1,800 and with that power draw, very few people will ever be able to hear one of these. :p

"During gaming, power consumption of the MSI Gaming X is around 350 W", taken from the power consumption page. Typo I think.

That is before tax.

$1799 USD is $2361 CAD + Retailer markup + Tax

Defect 1: 500W’s OC performance is inferior to STRIX’s default .....
Defect 2: Massively died recently according to EVGA forum (may be caused by 457.09) .....
I’ll pass it.

Was kinda surprised that while clocks matched, performance didnt. Guess ASUS had better cherries to pick..

It takes away value from those award when every single nvidia card gets ono... as is, I even stopped paying attention to them.
I said that multiple times in other reviews. As soon its an NVIDIA product slap on the "highly recommend" award. When 99% of products get an award it makes in kinda useless.
Same with the pros/cons list.

"14% faster than RTX 3080" is not a postive? - You are paying 800USD more for 14% performance. Should have been listed under cons with "ONLY 14% faster than RTX 3080"
"Manual power limit setting goes up to 500 W with XOC BIOS!" - So apparently now its a positive that a GPU can pull 500W. Let me guess when the review of the 6800XT/6900XT arrives under cons it will say "high power draw" even if it uses less than a RTX 3090.

"High heat output" is already listed in this review.

Performance per Watt is great on these cards? You are getting A LOT of performance. Is it possible that you are having unrealistic expectations that go beyond what is possible at this time?

More like evga being evga...it's the fatal combination I've seen coming sooner or later. Not excepting something better for the flagship of 'em all, but taking in consideration it measures 3x the perf of a vega 56 @4k and the FE having 1.5k MSRP, it should be priced ~1650 cost of a transaction, not the 'sheet price'. Preferably, this industry needs more transparency and courage to say 'buy it, BLING BLING BOY'
