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.
I get the point but it still doesn't have anything to do with their new releases. Practically every manufacturer has done more or less some shitty/shady stuff back in the day, yet still nobody brings those up.

Man that thing is a proper brick. With any luck, the weight will break the PCIe slot with its impressiveness. :p

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.

Lack of competition and selling out made no no need for investing on design prior to 1xxx series

I'll wait for EVGA's 4090 to come out before I buy one.
You'll wait looooong then..

Ha! That was my first thought as well. Kinda surprised it didn't get a mention until Page 2.

OMG.

This is actually a brick.

@W1zzard

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

Yup at this point I would pay for the model with the AIO this is just insane. Its getting to the point where you need a Mini pc just house the GPU then you can run some kinda PCIE extension cable from that box to the main tower lol.

Will be width a problem on some cases? For example, I've a be quiet 802 and GPU length it's not a problem, but I'm not sure if GPU will fit on the case because of the width...

The question is which card makes the best doorstop, paperweight or room heater?

Fun fact: The combined (rumoured) TBP of 4 4090s juuust about equals the power draw of a US-spec household space heater.

Is good to see the cable for pcie ex cables from psu atx 2.0. And in the other hand, those gpus are TOO BIG. Would be consider to follow the construction of msi suprim with aio.

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.

It certainly wasn't what the pcie expansion card format was designed for that's for sure

I'll wait for EVGA's 4090 to come out before I buy one.

Might want to grab a chair while you wait :D

Zotac somehow managed to be stupid enough to get caught

No no, not to get caught, to fucking brag about it!

@W1zzard is the 4080 16gb cooler the same as the 4090 like they pointed to when they announced them or smaller? (if that's something you can say ofc)

You should space them out a little to let air get into the fire, or it will go out...
