ASUS RTX 3090 TUF GAMING OC 24GB Quick Unboxing 4K

Here we take a look at the ASUS RTX 3090 TUF GAMING OC 24GB version which in our experiences with it so far is a massive improvement over our previous 2080 Ti. For anyone serious about 4K gaming then this card (whilst expensive compared to its 3080 sibling) offers supreme performance over the previous generation of RTX cards from Nvidia. We quickly unbox this desirable card for your viewing pleasure. Since launching one week ago, the RTX 3090 cards have been very-hard for gamers to acquire. Luckily, retailers are expecting increased stock levels over the course of this month and into November.
