OMG.

This is actually a brick.

@W1zzard

Can you take a photo of this card next to a brick?

IMO Zotac has one of the more stylish designs this time. Wish the Zotac was in here as well!

If you can`t lift a 2+ kg brick, this card isn't for you...

Just by the absurd look of it you can tell this thing is wrong.

The chip and the PCB itself is perhaps the smallest that has ever been made. But the heat produced is so concentrated that it has become inevitable to mount mastotonditic heatsinks.

I'm not as exciting for the 4090 as I was for the 3090.One thing is certain, I'll buy the HYBRID AIO version, rather than the fan cooled version.

Can someone explain to me why USBC for VR on the 2080Ti was abandoned in the 3080/ 3090 and doesn't make a comeback on the 4000 either?

There was an issue with DHL, the card is on its way and should be here this week, so I expect to have it in my launch-day reviews

Hmm, for all other cards than FE you need to buy an xtra adapter cable?

Kind of depressed and not a little turned off by the lack of innovation in the looks of the FE. Makes me wonder what else they didn't care about improving.

I guess 780 Ti and 980 Ti did look the same, and I get that they find a design that works and stick with it, but I can't shake the feeling that they are just going for MOAR POWER instead of innovating.

I nearly posted 3090 and 4090 swapped.

That Palit card certainly has a unique aesthetic. Maybe their designers hang out with G.Skill designers during lunch?

What has their post about Monopoly cash from over 1½ years ago to do anything with this?
That was in the middle of the GPU shortage, clearly ZOTAC was handing out product to miners and flexing on gamers (see the hashtags) about it. A really dirty move IMHO.
