Absolute powerhouse of a card if you've got the dollars to spare (4.5/5)
I somehow managed to buy this ASUS EKWB RTX3090 in mid-February 2021 during a global shortage of graphics cards, when I would have had to wait for my preferred card for a number of months. This card happened to be in stock at a local retailer for $500 less than other retailers and at a price comparable to it's MSRP - which is practically unheard of in the current environment - and, as I was planning to put the card into a water-cooled build, this being fitted with an EKWB water-block from the factory was another major consideration in the purch...ase decision. Let's get the disappointment out of the way: For a $3500 graphics card, the supplied bundle is very light - no games were included, and this card doesn't seem to appear on most of ASUS' ROG ("Republic of Gamers") promotions. Coupled with the price and performance differences between the 3090 and the 3080, this really highlights that 3090s in general are not value-for-money purchases. However, there are still a lot of positives (for me at least) - Pre-installed EKWB water-block means I don't have to do it myself and risk warranty issues - EKWB are a trusted brand in the water-cooling space provides additional peace of mind - The performance is leaps and bounds better than the 1080ti that I previously owned - I was able to pick it up the same-day I bought it instead of having to wait months like many others - The single-slot design works well in my cramped Lian Li O11D Mini
