    I'm somewhat confused because a game from 2018 is not playable without dropping under 60 fps on the highest possible settings, even with dual 3090s from two years after release using a technique that's practically dead. Like, wtf? What's happened to the times where you had the fastest consumer GPU and CPU and could play everything on max settings for the upcoming two or three years? For me it's quite unsatisfying to not be able to mindlessly crank everything up to max, even with a 2,000$ rig...

    It's always the same story with multi gpu gaming configuration: it increases the avg high fps but doesn't help in fact to push up the bottom end, the most important, that's why Nvidia maybe started to remove it from 1060, then 2070, then 3080, next round no more SLi at this point. But you double the costs, increase temperatures and also the power consumption just to push higher fps (if not cpu limited of course).

    The 3090 sli-version is actually impressive in a gaming PC! It would have been great if Nvidia have decided to work with this concept! The performance in some particular games like Red Dead Redemption 2, Doom: Eternal, Wolfenstein: Young Blood, Shadow of The Tomb Raider and the others which do actually support the sli is awesome. Thanks for the great Tech gaming video, Linus!

    You reviewers suck! You always fail to say is the card will work with an AVR and TV theater system. and fail to the information needed to make this choice. That information is will this cad offer eARC/ARC. This is a huge issue as I bought a RX580 "thinking this card would offer this link support" It DOES NOT! So ANYONE looking for a video card that offers up audiophile AVR theater system setup it is NOT AMD! So far the GTX 1050 GeForce card does have this so I picked up another Nvidia card a GTX 1650 super clocked! For $170.00 US dollars! Hey reviewers; there is more to a computer other than MB,CPU,RAM and video card. AMD needs to start thinking about this! As I am not buying another one till this is fixed!
