Amazing and fast card, does everything I want. realatively quickly
If you do any heavy CAD or video rendering you get some concerning temperatures on the memory junctions that cause card throttling, even without applying any overclocking. Reducing power (and therefore negating any reason for a high end rog strix configuration) helps but aslo reduces card performance substantially.
Great card, worrisome temperatures. 3 year manufacturer warranty should hopefully be not needed, but time will tell with the current temperatures when the card is crunching 3d.

Probably about the fastest and coolest running 3090 out there! It runs very quiet can hardly hear it in my case plus no noticeable coil whine. Additional Comments: Originally wanted a 3080 strix but got tired of waiting as this one was available. In the end I'm very pleased with my purchase as I haven't upgraded since my AMD 7970 and don't plan on upgrading for many years ahead!
Price but that's to be expected with this scale of card available at this moment. Had to Install on 2nd PCI slot as it was held up from seating due to my Ram slots on my MSI X99A GAMING 9 ACK Motherboard.

Getting pretty much the same performance as PCI-4 on my PCI-3 Intel MSI X99A GAMING 9 ACK Motherboard i7-6950x overclocked to 4.2 Ghz Quad memory 32GB running @ 3200Mhz and Nvme M.2 SSD 1TB .

Comes factory overclocked out of the box, but can be pushed even further and stays stable. Can keep up with CP2077 on maxed settings. Consistently pulling in 60-80fps in RDR2 on max settings, and getting the max 100fps in lower areas quite often. Good cooling on card, staying in 60c range when under a full workload, using only air.
-fans are a bit noisy, but nothing major. I am using an airflow case which does nothing to muffle noise, and it is still pretty decent. -price. It is a fair bit pricier than a 3080 (at msrp), for a small boost of power. The value isn't there for power:dollar, but it is the current king of the hill and commands top dollar. I bought the card due to scalpers in my area charging a bit lower for a 3080, so it was a no brainer to spend a bit more to get a better card.
Top dollar for top card. 3080 is better value, but if you want the extra performance than this is it.

- One of the best performing 3090s in the world - People complain about the noise: Asus has a v2 bios on their site that ensures the 0 fan mode works correctly. I agree it's a boneheaded thing to screw up on launch but run the update utility and it works fine. My GPU already had the new bios on it out of the box. - You also get a lot of configuration in the GPU tweak utility for fan curves and OC settings. Running the card in silent mode is genuinely pretty quiet and I don't lose that much performance. Or you can just blast the power limit and have the fans spin max speed. It's up to you which is great. At this eye watering price the consumer should have control. The software itself has an annoying UI but it works besides that. - Also has an on board switch for performance mode and quiet mode. I haven't dug into this yet but if you need noiseless operation I'm pretty sure quiet mode will just drop the clocks a lot and run quiet.
- Price. The value proposition on this is horrible. It costs more than my first used car (though that was many years ago). This card alone cost more than I usually spend on my entire build. But, that's the 3090 class of cards for you. If price to performance is something you're conscious of simply just don't buy this. It took myself several months to convince myself this was the card I should get. - Power draw. Pushed to the max this thing will hit 480 watts power draw on the card alone. No I don't mean entire system wall power, I mean just the GPU. Asus themselves provide a sheet and recommend around a 850 watt PSU for a higher end CPU (at time of writing). This also obviously necessitates a LOT of heat. - No manual. I know this is perhaps a minor complaint but I had to read reviews on the GPU to see what the "P Mode / Q Mode" switch on the board even did. The "quick start guide" it comes with says to view the manual for full details but there is no manual in the box or online.
The performance is pretty amazing and the options for fan control are great. While the performance is currently pretty much leading in the consumer market the price to performance is around the worst you can find - but I'm not sure many people even considering a 3090 will care. My recommendation is if you have a business need for the card or are simply an extreme enthusiast with deep pockets then it's worth considering this card. That said the price is difficult to swallow. If you're strapped for cash and are considering making significant sacrifices to afford this card I wouldn't recommend doing so.
