EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What's everyone's thoughts on EVGA's 3090 FTW cards? I assume the massive RGB strip is programmable? I've never owned a EVGA FTW card, they worth the $$? I'm stuck with this card, or ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090. Not sure which 1 is better...

all depends on benchmarks, if the 3090 is 15% faster than the 3080 for 125% the price, every % and every degree counts.

The EVGA FTW3 can do some pretty cool things with that RGB light bar.

 

EVGA customer support is by far the best of all the GPU companies so it’s hard not to recommend them on that alone, but the cards are usually pretty good too.

They well be around $1800.

Whether they are worth it may depend.

 

With the GTX 1080 it I thought it was not worth getting the FTW3 version since 1080 tis usually ran out of clocks before they ran out of cooling so I bought SC2s

 

With the RTX 2080 ti I thought they were worth it because 2080 ti ran out of cooling before they run out of clocks.  

The EVGA XC I bought ran too hot overclocked so I replaced it with a FTW3 Ultra.

 

I will be watching lots of reviews before I decide what EVGA 3090 I will get. It may be the FW3/Ultra or a hybrid. I do know that it will have three 8 pins.

 This right here is why I always went with EVGA.

3 years instead of 2, and although slow they have good customer support from what I've seen.

 

Sadly their models this time around are performing quite poorly.

I'm not sure I want the extra warranty at a 5-7% performance drop over say Asus TUF

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I think that the design of the plastics on the new FTW3 cards looks cheap. I much prefer the design of the 10 series FTW3 cards...

I even find the regular FTW coolers from the 10 series to look much better than the new design.

Interested to see what their calculation for the 3090 is in terms of investing in bot-harvesting them.

 

The 3080 was obviously a prime target (as would a 3070 if supply was low):  excellent price point for a nice jump over the 2080ti and a very awesome upgrade for anyone on a 1080ti (or any 10 series).  Not terribly difficult financially to buy a large quantity of near MSRP stuff (eagle/TUF/founders/ etc) and a price point that is not cheap, but a lot of people are drooling over.

 

Contrast that with the 3090.  The price alone already limits your target audience to the top few % of users/gamers.  And then you are going to be asking for additional hundos on top the already steep asking price...The return on buying 40 3090's (relative to cost) seems like it would be nothing compared to a 3080.   

 

Will be interesting to see what they do on this one.

 

The price they will be pushing it to would be so high that the number of people who can actually get there will be pretty small.

At this point, hopefully I can get my hands on a 3090 period. It would be nice to get my hands on the EVGA FTW3 3090... but if I can't get my hands on it... Hopefully the Asus ROG Strix 3090 will be perfect. Again, that's if I can get my hands on any of them lol. My guess stock will be available tomorrow morning? 10 EST?

Here in canada the FTW and Rog Strix are pricing in at $2500, which is $400 more than the Tuf and Eagle 3090's. I'm guessing you're not just paying for a better cooler or shoestring licorice red bordering on the FTW (srsly thats fugly), but that they come with all the bells and whistles for extreme overclocking under LN2. The Rog Strix is much better looking as is.

 

I've poo-poo'd before on the 3090's pricetag, but those 20% more cuda cores over the 3080 will likely get saturated more effectively in a year or two with future games that demand it, so I'd expect some "fine wine" over time. The only drawback of the 3090 and it's pricetag is how well its raytracing capability will age in a few years time. Granted, raytracing optimizations (like limiting how far rays can travel, etc) might resolve this organically.

When are the 3090 cards coming out? If they're already out now, looks like the Strix is sold out lol.

Not a surprise.

 

Either way I've already heard issues pop up with the first batch.

Not all AIB's have their models out yet.

 

Couple of months and we'll see stock everywhere

What are the issues so far that you've heard?

Mainly issues around VRAM cooling.

Sure the card's temperature is fine but on certain models, the VRAM runs hotter than expected.

 

Not sure if it's a bug or not, one thing I know is I'd rather buy upcoming batches knowing they can account for these things.

This is pretty much the same for every new tech, car or whatever gets released on the market, subsequent batches fix issues of the first releases.

 

You can't wait forever, especially not in GPU´s but seeing as every generation some flaw pops out on the first batch, why bother?

Anyone remember the GTX 970  4GB   3,5GB of ram? at least on that one NVIDIA was forced to give some kind of compensation
