It's a complete waste of money for sure, compared to the RTX 3080. You need to be, like me, unreasonably impatient to buy the 3090 at full asking price. I blame Covid 19 for causing me to make insane purchase decisions like this. Ah well; it works, it's huge, and it heats the house nicely so at least in winter, with Covid lockdown, this GPU is no waste of energy. In summertime it's going to be like the London underground at rush hour on a hot July day: unbearable. Still, i knew this when I bought it. i needed a tech fix, and it does give that.
