    A photo just surfaced from a PC with a GeForce RTX 3090 installed, that is a Founders Edition card installed and we already knew it would be big, like 31.3 cm in length big. Actually it is tall as we...

    Cooling differs from that of the 3080 it seems, since the rear fan is blocked on the other side.

    3070 and 3080 seem to both blow air through the hole into a tower cooler.

    Whoa! They should give vouches with each card to help purchase a new case.

    This is a non-final pre-production sample, its also all black where as the final model is not.

    I hope Mr. Hilbert does some 5k-8k test on this bad boy compared to the 2080ti, I would absolutely would love to see the results compared to the two. Thanks for sharing.

    All the people who use terms like future proof are eating there worlds. There is no such thing as future proofing.The only thing you can bet on is that once you buy your system tomorrow it can become obsolete .3000 series needs serious power when everyone thought the market was becoming more efficient and smaller things just got big. I love me a beefy graphics card.

    So do I technically need planning permission to install this thing? I mean I might not need it for the card itself but the structure I'll need to erect to support the card is going to need something surely?

    Looking at this compared to my gpu they look fairly similar in size.

    I have the 1080ti msi lightening, any doesn't seem like it's too different or if this is bigger its not as much as some people might think.

    But maybe it's just because I've been using these 2.5/3 slot cards for awhile now that I am quite used to them

    Nobody talking about how one can be happy to have a drive cage supporting the card's far edge because it's so big and the cooler probably weighs a ton? :D

    I'd do the same... hell, even a water block probably weighs a ton, will have to figure out something for that too. Talked to a coworker of mine, might get something 3d printed.

    Good gosh almighty, what a huge 1st party cooler! Don't think I can afford a 3090, but a 3080 doesn't seem much of an upgrade from 2080Ti...................I'm sure they didn't intend that with the massive 10GB-24GB VRAM jump. :p

    The fan looks funny, the wings look like they suck from top and blow out bottom, the presentation showed it to blow up and into the tower cooler area.
    I hope they make the power adapter longer, it looks so cheap and out of place with adapting going on beside a 1500€ card.

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn Are you allowed to confirm if the mounting holes around the gpu are the same as the 10-series? Just wondering if my x63 cooler fits.

    I’m pretty sure whilst under an NDA, he's not even allowed to say he has a card.
