Overall Review: I have run top tier Gigabyte cards since the 900 series... yet I could not agree more with the reviewer that states "No need for the more expensive models". I avoided the "Master" this time around because of its immense size. I have a Corsair 1000D case, but even in a case that spacious I was still going to have to reconfigure some things to get that card (The Master) to fit. So, I opted for the smaller "WINDFORCE" base model and have no regrets. It walks all over my previous 3090 AORUS master and runs way cooler. Using the "AORUS engine" auto-curve utility, I am running a 2900 MHz + overclock with no negative issues... I'm sure I could get more out of it if I tweaked it manually.. But why? ...I'm utilizing every bit of my 144hz monitor @ 4K in most AAA titles (ultra settings) so I don't really feel the need to push it any further. hwinfo64 screenshot attached (144hz monitor- 4K Gaming) along with a couple of system pics for reference. My Rig: Z690 Aorus master - 13900k CPU/ E cores disabled - Gigabyte RTX 4090 Windforce - G.SKILL F5-7200J3445G16GX2-TZ5RK - Corsair 1600i PSU - Samsung 990 Pro drives - 1.6 liter custom loop - EK block/ Monsta 420 - Corsair 1000D case
Pros: - Phenomenal Cooling - Appealing non-RGB design - No coil whine - Silent operation - Included customizable support stand
Cons: The adapter cable is terrible and inflexible, but thats NVIDIAs fault, not Gigabytes.
Overall Review: Great card for the price compared to the other 4090s which get you no real gain in performance. This is worth every penny, and likely has plenty of overlocking headroom on the core if you undervolt. There is little point to it though, and they cant be turned past 106% power anyways.
Overall Review: feels like im bottlenecked by a 5900x at 1440p
Pros: Insanely fast GPU. Overclocks are on-par with other 4090s (2900 MHz core, +1500 memory offset). GPU support bracket included to prevent any GPU sag No audible coil whine Card stays very cool and quiet. Stays below 65C and it's quieter than my 3090 Founders Edition card was. Dual BIOS! Nice, clean visual design.
Cons: I don't like that this card only has two PCI-e slots to support it when it's a 3.5 slot card. It should have used 3 PCI-e slots for support. It's a 4090 and carries the 4090's sky high price tag. But hey, Jensen has to pay for those jackets somehow.
Overall Review: I don't see any point spending $100-400 additional for the custom models; you don't really miss out on anything by just getting this and saving the extra money. Gigabyte really knocked it out of the park with this as their baseline model. Also, note that this card is HUGE. Make sure your case can fit it. This card *barely* fits in my Lian Li O11D-XL.
Pros: - Great cooling - Quiet fans - +200 mhz on the core and +1500 memory OC is stable on my card - It's "small" for a 4090, and I was able to fit it in a Fractal Torrent NANO!
Cons: - Sometimes I feel guilty I have so many frames. It's like rolling around on a bed of money, but with FPS.
Overall Review: I would really recommend this card, or any other $1599 4090, b/c that's what they should cost, and if you get a $2k 4090, I seriously doubt you'll get much faster OCs than I am on core/memory.
Pros: Upgrading from a 3080 Ti and the performance jump is impressive.
Cons: The mounting bracket is only 2 slots wide (2 screws). My 3080 Ti had 3 slots and this card is much heavier. I'm sure it will be fine, just makes me a little nervous.
Overall Review: One of the few flagship cards that is worth the high price. Note on Power Requirements: I was initially using an 850 W Gold PSU and it wasn't enough for this card. Graphics intensive games would crash when pushing the card to max power. I also have a lot of other drives/fans in my computer so you might be able to get away with it depending on your setup. Upgraded to an 1000 W and everything is fine.
Pros: - Ridiculously fast - Quiet so far - Clean look - Comes with sag bracket - Slightly recessed power mount helps to allow you to bend the cable properly
Cons: - 3 slot mounts would have been nice instead of 2 - It's huge, but all 4090s are, check your case size - No RGB, if that's your thing
Overall Review: This thing is a beast. Hopefully some more DLSS3 games will be available soon, but this card should have a lot of staying power.
Pros: It's a damb 4090, it's a beast, zero problems, super fast runs anything at 4k most titles at 144hz - 240hz Doesn't have all the fruity lights some kids want
Cons: Cost I suppose
Overall Review: Definitely worth it
Pros: -cheap price -runs cool -still overclockable
Cons: -very basic -box sleeve was larger than actual box which isn't a big deal but bothers my OCD
Overall Review: if you dont' care about RGB, then this is a good buy
Pros: I've seen some complaints about this 4090 being one of the most basic 4090's you can buy. While this is true, this card is still completely overbuilt. The cooler is MASSIVE, and it keeps the card very cool. Even overclocked to the max, it never breaks 70c, and in normal operation, it gets to the mid-60s. That is very cool compared to my 3 previous GPUs. It's very quiet, it's solidly built, and it comes with a GPU bracket so you can support it. It's fantastic. Make sure you have a 4K display for this monster. If you don't, you will be leaving performance on the table. It's crazy fast.
Cons: It's HUGE!!! Be sure your case case fit it inside.
Overall Review: I would easily recommend this. It's stupidly fast and very well built.
