    I think the Founders Edition is a little ugly, but then again I don't really care what my graphics card looks like!

    I like the Phantom from Gainward, the rest look so ugly, ugly cards with an ugly price.

    This indicates that the liquid cooled AIO card will be available on the 12th weirdly. Wonder how easy it would be to put in the front of a 7000X case. The top is all radiator already but got the front free.

    The Suprim model - that is what I would expect for this price point and performance level. It's fine to have triple-slot cards as an option but the AIO should be the default configuration.

    It looks so heavy, certainly not the best looking of the pack for me.
    Personally I like the FE design a lot, since the 3090, just wish it was a 2 slot card, less thick.
    In this gallery the MSI Suprim looks the best, though, and is slim.
    Too bad I would need to rob a bank to pick one. :)

    Lol @ all these 15mm fans having to push through a 40-45mm thick heatsink, they'll never learn.

    Very different cooling solutions.
    And always backplates, theres exposed main element of GPU or covered with backplate. No single solution.

    The sheer size and weight of those cards are absurd!

    The Asus Strix measures 35 centimetres and wheighs more than 2,5 kilos!!!

    Having said this my favourite cars is the MSI Suprim followed by the one from Pallit.

    Can't believe Asus is the only one with 2x HDMI ports. You'd think every card by default would have 2x HDMI seeing as this is super high end hardware, and people with LG OLEDs and similar 4K TVs will use it. Personally I use HDMI cable for monitor and HDMI cable for 4K TV.

    I would think this four times 8pin is a troll, but no , it's real.

    The Founders Edition is "only" 3 slots thick. Probably the only 4090 card that can be used with a MATX mobo and case.

    Edit... Overlooked that MSI SUPRIM Hybrid....

    This is the first Founder's edition / Nvidia model where the design seems like an afterthought. Almost like they came up with a design, then realized (after the fact) that they needed more cooling, larger openings for fans, etc. Weird considering 10, 20, and 30 series founders edition parts all had a very premium industrial design to the coolers and overall package. Even years ago the Titan Z (400-ish watts) had a more resolved cooler design.

    AIO on a dual slot hybrid card would've made a lot more sense considering the Founder's edition design appears to be a handful of concessions for cooling.

    The lack of HDMI ports is problematic for me too. I have 3 Oleds plugged on my PC: one smaller that i use as my monitor, a bigger one for TV/Video/Gaming, and a third one that is quite old that i use for stereoscopic 3D (newer OLEDs don't have stereoscopic 3D anymore).
    I currently have a Gigabyte 3080 Ti Aorus Master with 3 HDMI ports, but it seems that now all RTX 40X gigabyte cards have only 1 hdmi. I may skip this gen just because of this...

    I know there's DP to HDMI adapters but they add a little of input lag and don't support VRR.

    Yes, I've been impressed with the look of the Founders Edition cards from Pascal onwards (apart from this 4000 series one of course). (Don't know if they existed before then, but can't remember any).

    At least some of those cards are going to come with a GPU support bracket because of their weight.... Apparently some of them weigh enough to rip the PCIe slot off of some motherboards.

    With thse sizes if nvidia would start making CPU they could easily fit one around and add some ram and here we go :D maybe a nvme stick with external PSU like old gen consoles :D
