Great Card - Somewhere between a 3080 and 3090

PowerColor Red Devil AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Ultimate Gaming Graphics Card with 16GB GDDR6 Memory, Powered by AMD RDNA 2, HDMI 2.1 (AXRX 6900XTU 16GBD6-3DHE/OC)
PowerColor Red Devil AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Ultimate Gaming Graphics Card with 16GB GDDR6 Memory, Powered by AMD RDNA 2, HDMI 2.1 (AXRX 6900XTU 16GBD6-3DHE/OC)

Pros: -Super fast -Looks great -Quiet fans -Still only runs around 70c at full tilt

Cons: -Extremely large. Maybe an issue for some people -Really annoying coil whine

Overall Review: The card is great. I actually had an RTX 3090 prior, but sold it for almost 3 grand, and bought this instead. In terms of performance, the RX 6900 XT on occasion, surpasses the RTX 3090 in some games (obviously without any Ray Tracing). This card is somewhere between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 and sometimes surpasses the RTX 3090. In consideration of the current market for GPU's, this is honestly a great price. I found myself never using Ray Tracing with my RTX 3090 because there was always a huge performance hit. I figured, why not get a 6900 XT that nearly benches faster in traditional raster than a 3090?

Great so Far

Pros: +Sustaining heavy power load +Quiet +Extra heatsinks inside

Cons: -Sort of expensive for a 1000W PSU

Overall Review: I just recently purchased this PSU in a build that I use for rendering. I've been pushing this PSU to it's limits for over two weeks now and it's been solid. The extra heatsinks that Asus has in the PSU is doing wonders as I don't hear the fan activating (but it' running, I had to check!). So far, so good.

Stable, Reliable power

Pros: Stable, Reliable, modular, and the form factor is smaller/shorter than most other PSU's at this wattage.

Cons: Cables are ugly. What's worse is that you can't use other modular cables besides Thermaltakes. The inside of my computer isn't as clean as I'd like, mainly because of the cables that come with this PSU. I'm actually really upset about that.
