How is it, compared to 2080 Ti ?
What's your resolution ? Which games do you play ?
Finally scored an Asus TUF Gaming OC RTX 3090 + pre-order the EK water block and backplate , i will post my results and view once i get everything together. Asus Strix OC RTX 3090 will be released after October 28th , Kingpin RTX 3090 will come by end of the year or early next year , eVGA RTX 3090 Ultra is very , very limited in quantity ( Those are the best cards to get - Strix , Kingpin , eVGA FTW Ultra ) - Maybe if by next year i can find one of those in stock i will buy one and sale the Asus TUF.
For those interested in overclocking and Bios Flashing there is good news , there is already a new nvflash in the inno3d software , install the software and go to the directory , there you will find nvflash 5.660. People are reporting on cross flashing Asus Strix Bios 480w working on some cards RTX 3090 and have raise the power limit with it getting better stability and higher overclocks.
*Update - nvflash 5.660 stand alone now included for download - password Ampere*
Enjoy it !

I play a little of everything.
I do not usually benchmark but in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, same conditions at 3440x1440 it is 82 fps for 2080ti and 115 for 3090.
Does it destroy the 2080ti and are you happy with 3090?
And why am I not going to be happy with the 3090?
No buyers remorse then?
Don't get me wrong id love one, just asking for a regular guru's perspective is all.
I don't regret buying the 3090, nor am I glad my less than 1 year old 2080ti has lost so much value.
But computing is like that, this is my only "vice".
I hope the 3090 will last me a few more years.
I grabbed a half-price 2080ti couple weeks ago, my first build for a few years as i sold my last pc 3 years ago when i got sick of the mining crap.
Feedback was much appreciated, damn a 3090 and CP3077 i can only dream!
Enjoy you card!
LONG RTX 3090 acquisition story warning!!!! TL : DR version "I got a Golden Ticket!"
Full version below-
My RTX 3090 came in from PNY direct yesterday. I was number 1 of 2 people who got a card from PNY direct on launch day. Lisette called me to take my order directly, at 8:10am central time, 9:10 Eastern, aka 10 minutes after official launch, PNY had called me directly and taken my order.
This was HIGHLY unusual circumstances, to begin with though. AND ends up being an amazing customer service story of PNY going above and beyond the call of duty to live up to it's word to an end user, something most companies could care less about.
My entire journey into owning an RTX 3090 began a week before it launched, the day of RTX 3080's launch.
I had no intention of getting a 3080 and had money already saved up for 3090 and was sitting on it, but decided to use 3080 launch day as practice for the expected hell launch of 3090 that would be JUST as messed up, I thought... So, refreshing ALL of the vendors I had eyeballed, Newegg, Amazon, Best Buy, Office Depot, PNY, Nvidia direct, and EVGA. All tabs up and refreshing over and over... for the record, not ONE RTX 3080 on launch day even made it into my shopping cart, they would OOS between clicking "Add to cart" and actually making it there.
I was always kinda just looking at the PNY 3090's on PNY's site when one of the "buy now" tabs suddenly went live! A whole week before lauch, RTX 3090 XLR8, the nicer one of the two same name cards, went live for sale for all of one minute. I got it into my cart and spent the next HOUR trying to check out with it. After an hour of trying, my cart suddenly emptied and the card was gone.
I knew the whole thing was a mistake, but went ahead and entered a trouble ticket on PNY's site anyway, mostly out of frustration and wanting to vent, not expecting ANY answers or care from them, just wanted to bitch at somebody. And they responded! Michele, the Customer Service Manager for PNY responded that she was sorry my shopping cart had behaved so and PROMISED stock would be available on launch morning and to try again then. I emailed back grateful at all that she had responded and said I would be on the site on launch morning with bells on...
RTX 3090 morning hit. 7 minutes of frantic F5 across 7 different tabs all going at same time. In that time, I manage to get 4 cards into shopping carts, 2 at Newegg, 1 at Amazon, and 1 at Best Buy, but all 4 end up OOS before I can check out with them. However, just getting 4 into shopping carts was already a big improvement over 3080 launch and didn't lose hope.
ALSO, a mystery began popping up on PNY's site from launch time to that minute, 7 minutes after launch that had been rising in priority of notice. Michele had PROMISED me stock on PNY's site on launch morning. The site was still very responsive and quick, so it was not being bombed by bots or even many users, most assumed PNY would have nothing and the web site confirmed their fears, nothing ever went live for sale on their site. At all.
Noticing this, I shot an email at Michele asking what the heck happened, I had been there since 5 minutes before launch refreshing and it never went live and couldn't be sold out cause the site was moving VERY smoothly and clearly was not loaded up at all. 8 minutes past launch, I received an email from Lisette at PNY telling me that Michele had told her to call me and she needed my phone number. My heart leaped into my throat wondering if this was gonna just be a let down call or if they really were gonna take my order live over the phone...
At 10 minutes past launch time, Lisette called me and took my order. She was SUPER nice and a little unexpectedly chatty and explained that Michele had a list of people for her to call, and those people on the list would be the ONLY ones buying cards direct from PNY on launch. PNYs entire stock of cards had been eaten up by Newegg, Amazon, Best Buy, and Office Depot, and PNY only had -2- cards to sell for themselves at launch.
You can call PNY's sales line directly. You WILL talk to Lisette, she is the only one who takes orders over the phone at PNY. She will confirm this story. I was number 1 of 2 cards sold on RTX 3090 launch day. And yes, she remembers ALL of the above clearly as everytime I've called in to check status we've joked around about my getting a "Golden Ticket" to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory
So yeah, THAT is my journey to owning an RTX 3090. PNY made a VERY minor mistake a week before launch, and totally jumped through hoops to clean up that mistake FAR beyond what I expected.
I am now a PNY fanboy. The company that makes Quadros treated me like a king, rolled out the red carpet and sold me a RTX 3090 at factory cost, flat 1499.99 shipped. The card is in my PC now, running cool and quiet and INSANELY powerful in the few things I've had a chance to throw at it. But I wanted to share this fun journey because it really was something of an crazy event in the end.
Sorry for long story, but if not told in full, then the craziness of it all wouldn't make sense.
Edit: Also, for the record, build quality on this card is simply stunning. HIGHLY impressive.

Thank you, Astyanax and endbase for the instructions!
Just a few impressions so far. Runs very cool overall as long as my AC is on and windows closed, I live in Texas and it gets hot outside. If windows closed, AC on, temps in games and benchmarks hover around 75C. If the AC is off and windows open, game and benchmark temps climb to around 80C, but still not terrible for how warm outside it gets.
Performance is superb, however not going to post exact numbers because they are only impressive from the view of coming from a 1080 Ti and on the same machine. In that light, my performance is roughly doubled overall. Some games and benchmarks, mainly newer stuff, gets up to double and sometimes a hair more. Older games and benchmarks benefit less, seemingly, CPU bottlenecking shows up here, but not terribly so as performance gains are still massive (except in SUPER older stuff where performance doesn't change at all due to CPU constraint).
Build quality is VERY high, the whole thing just feels far better built than my Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti, less flimsy seeming. The shroud on the Aorus always felt a little cheap, the shroud on the PNY 3090, on the other hand, just seems more solid and durable. Also, the card is completely encased in cooling, the only PCB really visible is at the NVLink fingers and the PCIe connector. The back plate is plain, but tasteful and in fact looks REALLY good in my case.
After the amazing customer service from PNY and the super high quality of the card itself, then all of that on top of this card being one of the less expensive choices out there for a 3090, I HIGHLY recommend it IF you can find it at the reasonable pricing PNY intends. Once stock is in at PNY, it is 1499.99, same as Founders Edition and shipping was free for 2nd day. So yes, I would recommend them... once they have stock there. Until then, it's the lottery methods on the big 3 sites for most, I guess, but I wouldn't be surprised if a few months into this we find out more real people got 3090's than 3080's during the launch. Scalper bots were present, but less so than 3080 launch day.
Sending love to Michele and Lisette ! Great story!
You and me, both, brother! I have expressed gratitude every single contact since Lisette called me, I'm honestly that floored by the good treatment. I expect industry standard treatment, usually, which is solid, but not bend over backwards amazing, LOL!
At 5th October I should be having here EVGA RTX 3090 XC3 for testing and I really hope by this date waterblocks will be out and I can do at least proper testing
Will probably flash EVGA RTX 3090 with Asus RTX 3090 BIOS
Still no news on my MSI 3090 Gaming X Trio from the store, looks like they have no stock information themselves.
I don't think anyone has. My guess is that im waiting at least 2 months for my 3090 strix oc, as denmark always seem to be downprioritized, likely due to how small the country is.
Hoping im getting it before cyberpunk releases though.
Great to hear that my friend , we will do like 2 years ago with the 2080Ti all over again, We will compare notes and information on the water blocks and Bios. I already pre-order the EK water block and EK backplate because this Asus TUF 3090 is custom pcb and only EK have a block for it. Will be testing with a couple of Bios and shunt mods once is under water.
Kind regards: Angelo
