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: high end specs at the time of purchase
Cons: thing is giant annoying to install and uninstall pricy i hate scalpers
Overall Review: 5/5 as advertised
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: Very fast Very cool stays at 63 degrees even after hours of gaming at 4k Silent Can max out all 4k games and stay above 100fps and with DlLSS even more fps
Cons: Price Is large same size as 4090
Overall Review: Very good card! Yes it is over priced but I had saved up and decided to buy this instead of 4090 and use extra money for a 13700k. Temps are fantastic stays at 63 degrees with fans spinning at 60%.
Pros: + I mean, it's an RTX 4080, it's insane. + It's a huge jump from the 3080, and if you've been waiting to jump on the RTX train since the 1080, it's going to be massive. + The only games I can't lock at 5120x1440 @ 120 FPS are Cyberpunk 2077 and Warhammer 40,000 Darktide. These are the two most demanding games on the market. Everything else is 120+ easy.
Cons: - The far and away worst part about this device, and why I have a hard time giving it a higher rating was because of the 12VHPWR cable that came with the card. Upon installing this card, I was given the 5 beep code error. To save a very long story of troubleshooting nightmares, the fix was unplugging one of the 8pin PCI-E connectors from the cables. This worked in the short term, and after an after market 12VHPWR cable, the card is 100% functional with all 3 cables plugged in. If you have the same issue, I highly recommend these steps as the card, again, was perfectly functional, it was just the provided 12VHPWR cable that was the problem. - It's not a 4090. At this price range, where you're able to spend 1200 dollars, you might as well keep saving up to 1600 as it's not that far away, and get a 4090.... if you find one at that price. If you buy now, you're buying knowing this card will likely not maintain it's 1200 price tag. If this doesn't sit well with you, keep waiting for the used market, or NVIDIA to adjust the prices. If you can get this card for 1000 even, I think that's an unreasonably good value for the power. - No picture will ever do it justice, but this card is huge. Incredibly thick, and incredly long. It fit very snug into my NZXT H710i. If you don't have a case with a lot of space, I highly recommend pre-measuring to make sure this will fit.
Overall Review: I definitely recommend the 4080..... at not this price. 1000 would be the best price to buy it for. If you run into the issue I mentioned above, buy a new 12VHPWR cable, and you'll be happy. In the meantime, unplug one of your 8pin PCI-E cables. If you can, save for a 4090 instead. Otherwise, this card is still a very viable upgrade, even going from the 3080.
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.
