The RTX 4090 is our GPU Benchmark Hierarchy and one of them best graphics card,and AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT Starting now in the rearview mirror, it’s clear that the 4090 will remain unchallenged for quite some time.
Colorful’s 4090 Vulcan OC follows a now familiar pattern. You get a massive air cooler and triple fans that are wider than the triple slot form factor. But Colorful doesn’t stop there. Throw in a detachable LED screen that can be used to display details like temperature and clock speed, or display additional he RGB effects if desired. It also comes with a stand that supports the card and prevents it from sagging.
Two months after the first launch, Meltable 16 pin adapter Nvidia declares: It was caused by an improperly connected cableWe haven’t heard much about the new reports of melted connectors, so hopefully word is out and the root cause was actually user error. I want to Especially since it looks like there are plans to use the same 16 pin connector for most of the RTX 40 series lineup.

As far as specs go, the only difference between the various RTX 4090 cards is the boost clock. Still, boost clocks tend to be conservative, so there shouldn’t be a huge gap. This usually means a difference of less than 2%, but higher power limits can make the difference slightly larger.
Colorful includes an OC button on the IO panel rather than the usual switches found on other cards. This may be useful if the PC is closed on the sides and you switch modes regularly, but since it requires a reboot most users will likely just press (or not press) the button and forget about it. increase. If I don’t press “1 button OC” it will be the reference clock, but I don’t know if it will change the power limit.
Colorful’s official MSRP is a little higher than most other cards, with only the Asus model having a higher starting point. so it’s not that important at the moment. That’s assuming you can find Colorful Cards in the U.S. This is a world-famous brand, but its presence in the U.S. is more limited than other graphics card names.Withdraw from the market. Could it now try to capture some of EVGA’s former market share?
