The perception of model tiers and price points is going out the window with all of the re-branding and re-pricing that has occurred in recent years, especially with the latest round of scalping followed by manufacturers deciding to embrace the new grossly inflated price points.It would be an OC dream if it was $800, which would be close to its actual gaming value.
Haha, hope you know that manufacturing/shipping cost has increased drastically this 1 1/2yrs.Colorful RTX 3090 is an overpriced Dream. Selling a $1500 MSRP GPU for $5000 yields up to a $4000 profit. A scalper with over a thousand of those makes an easy several million bucks with minimal effort. Just one, That's a sale that can buy you a supercomputing rig.
These sorts of cards are a waste of resources in my opinion. They are produced for maybe 0.0000001% of the population, just for the sake of pushing the clockspeed limit, beat some record, then it likely end up destroyed by the overclocking feat, or in someone's computer running no faster than any other RTX 3090 out there. Performance improvement over other RTX 3090 out there is negligible and those crazy overclock obviously don't work with whatever air cooling solution they implement on it.A 3090 overclocked to around 2Ghz will tend to only raise actual game performance by around 5% or so compared to a reference-clocked card, so I would hardly say that makes for an "overclockers dream". One is unlikely to notice any perceptible performance difference between this card and any other 3090. Even a 3080 should perform relatively similar.
Paying any significant premium for an overclocked card tends to be a waste. And even when buying from a scalper in the current market, new 3090s are readily available for around half that price.
