Congrats! I know some of us love to trash the card for it's price, but this is still very exciting. The card is insane and you'll love the crap out of it. Do share when you get your hands on it. Hopefully some firestrike and maybe even run Crysis for us?
How about some Minesweeper to sweeten the pot?
Oh, and don't get me wrong... I think the card is stupid expensive too. Awkwardly, one of the reasons why I wanted one is because I saw a Corridor Digital video a few weeks back where they ran the AI image generation software on their own machine and could feed their own images into it. They could send in about 8 photos of one of their personnel, and get results back featuring that person. I was all giddy like a school girl, "I wanna try!" Unfortunately, it requires a video card with 24GB of VRAM. So, my only options were the 3090, 3090 Ti, or 4090. I figured that (unless I wanted a cheap Zotac), there wasn't a ton of value in getting the old card.
Although, that did make me really bummed about the time I waited in line at Best Buy for a card. I wanted to get a 3070 to put in my girlfriend's computer as it was better suited for 2560x1440. I woke up about 20-30 minutes later than intended to go to the store and wait, and ended up a bit further back than desired. As they got close to me, they still had 3070s, 3080 Tis, and 3090s left, and I knew the guy in front of me wanted a 3090. ...and the guy in front of him got the last 3070. I only had seconds to make a decision and just went with a 3080 Ti. I should
have gone with the 3090 since my 10% birthday coupon worked with it and not the 3080 Ti, and heck.. I probably could've mined the remaining $150 difference since the 3090 didn't have any limitations. Anyway, if I had done that, I would've had a GPU with 24GB of VRAM to mess around with.
