Is the Asus Stirx 3080/3090 worth the extra premium?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I am, Just like most people it seems like looking to purchase an RTX card, 

 

I am planning to have this card for many years and wonder if it's worth it to put the extra premium into a strix card?

 

Example:

MSI / Zotac 3090 goes for 1900 usd for me (With conversion) 

Strix 3090 goes for 2300 usd, 

 

It's an extra $400 premium.

 

What makes the Strix so much more expensive?

 

Their TUF lineup is the same price as the others at 1900

Honestly wait for wave 2, more comprehensive reviews on the aib models will be out and any first wave issues should be ironed out with. And pricing should normalize.

I normally prefer the Strix models but the premium is too high this time. There are several models $0-50 more that are cooler, quieter and perform 2-4% faster than the FE.  The TUF is one of them.

 I never understand why the strix is the same price as an EVGA or MSI water-cooled card. Probably just the ASUS hype.

There is no way to answer this question without benchmarks or accurate pricing.

The ASUS TUF series for the 3080 is doing quite well for itself though, so it comes down to, how much extra is the STRIX going to be when the second wave hits, and how much performance boost is it over their own TUF line, which was selling for the same price as FE

The TUF is doing great and the Strix in my country is $400 more, I wonder if I can get $400 more value from the strix

I very much doubt that, if you are paying 400$ premium you might as well get a 3090

I will be getting a 3090, Question on that is if the $400 premium is worth it on a 3090 over other gpu's

 

I plan on having this GPU until it dies, No plans to update monitors etc

I would advise against it if it's for pure gaming

Here are the benchmarks:

 

7% faster on 1440p

10% faster on 4K

 

For the low extra price of 110% more than the MSRP for the 3080

Unless you need it for video editing or anything where the VRAM matters it's not worth it.
