The RTX 3090 is without doubt the new performance king and carrying the STRIX badge only confirms this further. Even on paper the stats speak for themselves, 24GB GDDR6X, 10496 cuda cores and not to mention a chart topping 1890MHz GPU boost clock.

Casting an eye over the benchmark results highlights that at lower resolutions of 1080p and 1440p, the RTX 3090 barely flexes its muscles, and in fact RTX 3080 and 3090 figures are similar at 1080p. Stepping into the 4K domain is where we really see this card come into its own, at 4K and above, the RTX 3090 starts to really pull away from other cards. So your sole intention is to game at 1080p or even 1440p, you would probably be better investing in the RTX 3080.

The ROG team has done an excellent job with the re-design of their STRIX cards for this generation, a makeover was needed and they’ve delivered. RGB lighting may not be for everyone but the integrated strip along the edge of the card adds some vibrancy to any configuration.
The most obvious elements to take note of if you’re considering this graphics card are the size, weight, and power requirements. This GPU is gigantic and will therefore need sufficient space within a computer chassis to comfortable reside, it’s also rather hefty in the weight department so if you have an enclosure with GPU weight support, we definitely recommend using it. Power consumption for NVIDIA’s new lineup is considerably more demanding and this flagship places itself at the very top of the stack for such an attribute – an 850W PSU is necessary as well as triple 8-pin PCIe connectors.

Combine the fastest GPU with the STRIX insignia and we’re left with no surprises about a big price-tag. STRIX RTX 3090 OC is available for a breath-taking USD $1600 | AUD $3400 | GBP £1700.

If you want the very best, this is unquestionably it. STRIX RTX 3090 OC takes Ultra-Hi Def gaming to another level.
