    Well, let's see it perform, and see the price. Looks nice, though.

    I always try to type faster than the speed of light, and sometimes physics beat me to it :p

    Reminds me of my card.

    I like the look of RTX Aorus lineup.

    I'd love to have this card. Might even buy it, IF! Gigabyte can actually make it work. Everything I ever owned my Gigabyte I pretty much had to toss in the trash not long after owning it. They make the best looking stuff tho! Now make it work right!

    When they introduced the Aorus brand got them up there. Cards/motherboards are decent quality and they look great.

    Gigabyte have been top of the line longer than pretty much every hardware manufacturer out there.

    Here's an example of Gigabyte vs your standard manufacturer.

    Perhaps they should change their brand name and start charging extra?

    Oh, look, they have. I wonder why? :rolleyes:

    Trying to figure out if there's anything correct or useful in your post, i mean...Don't take it wrong, but, first of all, how's gigabyte been top of the line in manufacturing when they're poorest brand? Besides many of their cards are of dubious value compared to models from other manufacturers. Second, how is a rough pcb comparison (compared to what exactly i don't know) is supposed to show anything at all, rather than colour of pcb and length(?) of the card? And third what is a ~5 years old review about a 290X model supposed to tell us exactly? The fact they started to overprice stuff? So? Everybody does.

    Did you had bad experience with gigabyte before when you think of them so poorly? As you can see they are in good place now. Aorus line is very good.

    No i didn't have any experience with them at all, nor plan to, it's not me thinking them so poorly, they're poor by fact compared to everyone else, very good place? Mmmh not sure about that, only some of the aorus products are good, rest are kinda underwhelming, 1080Ti aorus xtreme is kinda loud while having not even that good temps. Plus i don't like their designs, i kinda liked the older ones for GPUs, but now they're one of the ugliest in my eyes.

    only blind fanatics think gigabyte is anything more than mediocre over all.
