Pros: -Great performance -Works great with the new flight simulator -Uses little power when idle
Cons: -Power adapter did not work
Overall Review: This is a great card and I would give it 5 out of 5, however the power adapter that came with the card did not work. I see from other reviews and discussions in other forums that I am not the only one. The 12vrpwr that came with the card has 3 connectors for PCIE from your PSU. With all three plugged in the card will not work. I tried many ways to troubleshoot this including a different power supply and still nothing. I bought a new 12vrpwr adapter and sure enough the card worked.
Overall Review: I upgraded from a 3080 and it's a totally different experience. Not only powerful, it's also quieter and more power efficient. Be sure that your case is big enough for it.
Pros: - Great performance - Surprisingly light - Anti sag bracket - Runs cool and quiet
Cons: - Probably should be a tad cheaper - The cooler is stupid big - Faulty power adapter
Overall Review: So far I am very happy with the card overall. It's been staying cool and very quiet, I don't seem to suffer from any coil whine. The cooler is ridiculous in size compared to the PCB, but it's actually much lighter than I would have thought. Just be sure to double check your case will accommodate the card. I have an older Phanteks Enthoo Primo and I had to modify the drive cage to allow the card and the anti sag bracket to fit/work. Only real complaint I have is the power adapter included did not work. The motherboard vga diagnostic led stayed lit, no display output and the fans would not spin. Like another review here, I found on reddit someone stating the power cable was faulty and for the heck of it I ordered a new one to try. Shockingly it worked but I want to see if Gigabyte will send another for me to try.
Pros: Its at retail. 4090 isnt thats good enough a reason to buy this then jump to the 5090 when thats a reality.
Cons: Its not the 4090
Overall Review: This will do everything you need it too. Yes its not the 4090 but if it can be bought at retail its more than overkill. The card will run your games maxed the F out @ 4K. With solid FPS nonetheless!
Pros: First impressions are positive overall. This is high performance video card with reasonable power consumption. I did some benchmarks, and the highest number I saw in Afterburner is 338 W for the card alone (Metro Exodus Enhanced edition benchmark with max settings), so my current 750 W PSU is more than fine. And this is before any undervolting. This card has massive cooler (double check if it is going to fit into your case!) which helps keeping card cool and quiet. There is some minor coil whine at very high FPS, but it is nothing like I had in the case of Asus ROG Strix RTX 3080, which I returned after ~ 1 week due to unbearable coil whine.
Cons: Early adopter problems. This card did not output video signal with all three 8-pin cables connected to the 16-pin adapter. Card works just fine with two 8-pin cables connectors to the 16-pin adapter. I hope Gigabyte is going to say something about this problem or fix it, may be through the card firmware.
Overall Review: My reasoning for buying 4080 instead of 4090. Many respectable reviewers on YouTube pointed out that the 4080 has worse price per FPS ratio compared to the 4090. But for me personally, 4090 is not an option because with 4090 I have to buy new high-end PSU and new UPS which would be at least ~ 400 500 $ plus the difference in price between the 4080 and 4090 which is another ~ 400$ (Lowest MSRPs). In my opinion not worth it. The 4080 is expensive but also futureproof, I hope for 5 years at least.
Pros: Card performs as it should once you get the thing to actually work. It effectively doubled the performance of my 2080Ti which is what I wanted.
Cons: Price is obviously stupid. Sadly, for my wallet, I'm a dumb move kinda guy. OK here's the rub. I could not get this thing to produce a picture at all. After a bunch of troubleshooting I found a solution by dumb luck. The card will not work with all 3 8 Pin connectors hooked to the adapter. Using 2 the card works fine. Also when using Afterburner for overclocking you can adjust the power limit to 117%. I've seen on the 4090 the card will work with 3 of the 4 cables hooked up but it locks the power to 100% instead of higher. There's a reddit post on this issue and a user there tried an adapter from Zotac and it worked with all 3 hooked to the same Eagle card so the adapter included my be bad?
Overall Review: No I don't recommend this thing at the current price.
Pros: I like this gpu a lot, a giant improvement over my old one -REALLY GOOD PERFORMANCE -pretty good thermals (mostly below 70c in most games)
Cons: -Its obviously pretty expensive -power hungry -gigantic (as long as most consoles) -cables are a mess
Overall Review: Overall its pretty good but don't buy it at any higher than msrp and if I had another chance I would've gone with the gaming OC but I can't because of Newegg's return policy.
Pros: Amazing performance at 4k resolution Easy to install Beats all of last gen's cards Better ray tracing performance
Cons: Pretty big card, but worth it if necessary for cooling the card. Maybe aesthetics could be a bit better. I personally prefer the founder's edition's looks and build a lot more, but I understand the cooling and overclocking is not as good as gigabyte's model so I'll gladly take that trade off.
Overall Review: Wanted a card that is more or less futureproof for 4k, able to maintain cool temperatures, and does not constantly exceed over 350 watts. This card beats out last gen's flagship (3090 ti) in all those aspects. It is amazing that it pushes more FPS for less power draw and lower temperatures. It is not extremely heavy like the 3090 and what I assume the 4090 is. Decent aesthetics. I also like that you can control the RGB on this card using gigabyte control center. Overall satisfied with my purchase.
Overall Review: Caused my system to Boot Loop with no signal to monitors. I've started the RMA process, so I'll update this review if the replacement works.
