4090 launch day!

I’m currently EVERYWHERE trying to learn as much as I can about the various AIB partner boards because AMD wouldn’t allow performance numbers or overall reviews to go up for AIB partner cards until the day of release (very annoying to those of us who want to know what they’re buying before they buy it on launch day… I hate embargos). Fun times.

For real time info, check out Falcodrin's twitch stream (which is up pretty much all the time tracking what vendors have what models of GPUs and CPUs and has up-to-the-minute launch/queue notifications.

I’m currently considering the Asus 4090 Strix (which is entirely too large) and the Asus 4090 Tuf because the Asus cards have an extra hdmi port, are of generally known high quality, and because all the AIB partners cards seem to be able to reach a 600w power target out of the box. (at least that’s what I’ve heard) It’ll still be about a month before we see any water blocks for any of the 4090 cards though so I may just hold off for a little while (another week or so) until I can watch and read more reviews.

Stay tuned!
