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

Yeah it struck me too. Not only does it stand out, it also seems like a genuine attempt to reduce the bulkiness of these absolutely massive cards. And succeeding at it.

Still far too big though, this isn't ever going to get anywhere near my wallet even if I wanted to smash 2 grand on a GPU.

Funny. I run my 1080 Ti OV/OC without a problem with a 550W PSU and this probably couldn't even power that hungry beast.

@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)
No idea, don't have a 4080 yet, they launch in November I think

I might have missed this small detail.

Can anyone point out if there was a defined notch or other structurally assured mounting point for the height adjustable bracing on any of these cards? That is a lot of weight with a fair amount of torque even before you consider the impact of fans.

The review said:
The tail end of the card has a small lid that covers the mounting holes for a support rail, used in certain workstation form-factors such as the x86 Mac Pro.
IDK if that is for supporting in a standard ATX case, but there it is.

FFS... This is ridiculous...
Yo RTX 4090 is so fat, the motherboard cries and the RAM dies.
The RTX 4090 is so fat, when Jensen Huang set one down on his office desk, it lowered the price(yeah, we wish), and when it fell over nobody was laughing, but the ground was cracking up.
Yo RTX 4090 is so fat, you can't see any RGB lighting inside the room.
Yo RTX 4090 is so fat, when it's cooling fans spin, the local news weather issues a high wind warning.
The RTX 4090 is so fat, the product pictures are taken via satellite.
The RTX 4090 is so fat, when it fell over, it bounced over Walmart, crashed through Sam's Club, and landed on Target.
The RTX 4090 is so fat, when I tried to picture it in my head, it broke my fricken neck! :kookoo:

I'm sure these AIBs have their suited boots checking-in on these forums hence a little note:

Although it may not be in everyones interest/preference, a more uniform heatsink on more GPUs would be nice (aesthetically speaking). Whether it compromises on performance or heatpipe flex , i dont know but i'm sure your engineers are wiser and will find a solution. For eg. ASUS - love that clean fin stack!

...opposed to what "looks like" manufacturing defects unless there are odd balls who like mysterious black holes with a lump of heatpipe/s exposed:

heatsink2.jpg


(those 12-pin connectors look tiny on these gigantic cards... always did like the chunky fin arrangement and hope we get some of this magic on mid-tier cards whether its overkill or not)

EVGA GPUs :( RIP!!

Adapter cables are included with all cards
@W1zzard, the adapter cables are interesting. Only 2 of the 4 sense pins are connected to GND on 2 of the 4 8-pin adapters. 3x 8-pin are enough to power but not if you pick an 8-pin without GND sense.

Not nearly as exciting as it would have been if the prices weren't insulting.

with this unboxing, nvidia need you to known, it is the size of "new normal" vga...

It really isn't, just as 1000$+ are not the new normal for price, as is moore's law not dead yet. Just an halo product, a big fat halo product at that.

Not to mention having to buy a $250-$300 PSU for the thing... I thought I was making a smart investment buying a Seasonic Focus GX-750 back in early 2020, now it's practically a kid's toy. I'm going to try and stay on AM4 (Zen3/RDNA2) for as long as possible since doing a full (enthusiast tier) upgrade these days will practically require taking out a personal loan.

Why are they still putting the power connector in the most intrusive place possible?
It should be on the bottom corner away from the outputs, or in a cutout of the backplate towards that end, now that the PCB isn't more than 60% the length of the heatsink

Normally when new Nvidia cards come out I get them ASAP. Not this time, way too much power needed, larger case needed and support for holding it up.

Yea I think the 4090 needs to get some exercise, it seems to have gained some weight LOL.

I am curious how its going to sounds and perform under stress with these massive coolers!

Because that would require an internal extension cable which is bad for manufacturing (not just more expensive but actual bad failure prone design) or a longer weirdly shaped pcb just for the connector which is more expensive to make.

The cable has to go somewhere and imo creating a technical design problem to fix a very small aesthetical annoyance is not the way to go (it's an internal pc component, function over form all the way lol).

All in all, it's just another brick in the wall.

yeah. Im not too happy though... the local store was out of bricks and this is the only one available at a crazy asking price. It does look futuristically nice though. I had 2 choices. 1. Either wait for the store to get their next batch of affordable bricks or 2. pay the hefty premium and purchase this special addition brick and quickly fill the hole before the house came crumbling down. I guess a worthwhile premium to pay if it saves lives. The weird part, some weirdo walked past my home and saw my new and shiny brick and said "huh isn't that a graphics card?" i dunno what this guys was on about... he did look a little high. He was sure as hell adamant to prove his theory. I mean come on - $1600 for a graphics card, really?... i dunno what planet hes living on. Oh well, silly people with silly ideas.

Damn these cards are so massively fat. If the 4090 ever entered a bus it would have to pay for two tickets to seat.
It wouldn't fit in my case probably.
