EVGA left the game for 1 week and the entire video card industry has lost its mind. In this video, we'll walk through the marketing madness, silly names, and, in some cases, bizarre designs of the NVIDIA RTX 4090, RTX 4080 16GB, and RTX 4080 12GB partner model video cards. This includes video cards from ASUS, Gigabyte, Colorful, MSI, Galax, Inno3D, Zotac, Palit, PNY, and Gainward. There are a few others too, but we only really removed the less relevant ones.

    DLSS is amazing; it can even upscale prices.
  • This escalated quickly on so many levels. 4 slots and beyond, Bionic Shark Fans, Dark Obelisk support sticks and 4x8-pin Power adapters. God help us.
  • Craig Griffin
    Your reviews are truly a jift to the gaming world.
  • Thepowerlies
    Let's hope that AMD and Intel have good things to offer
  • René Casaña
    Just like apple, Nvidia should focus in making GPUs less bulky and more energy efficient. This is getting ridiculous, at this point the GPU will require an entire separate unit outside a case
  • CJ
    I get the feeling that the reason many manufacturers have omitted the RTX 4080 12GB pictures is because they originally rendered them as "RTX 4070" and Nvidia blindsided them.
  • A M
    Imagine being the inventors of dark power and anti gravity plates, only to turn around and use them to build a graphics card, instead of world domination.
  • Buggerlugz
    Honestly I couldn't be less interested in Nvidia's offerings at this point. The way they treat their core market is utterly appalling.
  • MrOffTrail
    If you’ve been toying with the idea of moving to water cooling, I think now’s the time if you are considering 40-series. It definitely looks like the way to go both for thermals and just to keep the size reasonable. Or if you want to stick with air cooled, I guess you could try converting a dumpster into a PC case to hold these behemoths. Just make sure you budget for a house addition construction costs in your build.
  • romanpul
    We've come a long way. Most of those coolers are truly colossal. I remember not too long ago, my ROG Strix 1080ti with its 2,5 slot cooler was considered enormous (and also extremely power hungry with its 280W 😂😂😂)
  • Grant Wiersum
    I'm trying to imagine the use case where someone is willing to spend 1500 on a video card and use 4 slots of space just to avoid water cooling.
  • Nvidia is actually very considerate of their buyers by providing them with video card, space heater, dumbbell and building brick all in one.
  • jpogi gtxcr1
    30 series is so in demand, it still makes you want to get it even after the 40 series has been released.
  • Robert Smith
    I like how you started with ASUS as they seem to be the only one following their naming model seriously. It's like you didn't want people to confuse them with the other nonsense they are surrounded by.
  • Jared Peek
    Honestly at this point if AMD's RDNA3 cards are at a reasonable price with competitive performance, and have "normal" looking air coolers without the Shadow the Hedgehog level edginess they could knock it out of the park this generation.
  • nope nope
    I hope these aftermarket cards keep being ridiculous because this video was a hilarious reaction to them. 😂
  • XxArgonautxX
    By the time we get to the 5000 series, we’ll need AIO cards or custom water loops for the cards to keep them cooled. I just upgraded from my 1080ti that was a beast of a card from gigabyte to the 3080 strix card and the size differences is actually comical!
