Hi, Linus. Since 3090 SLI does not make sense at all, will you be kind enough to send that extra 3090 you no longer need to me over here in the Philippines? lol

sry. that is stupid..why that say to us,,,hey even the 3090 is not enough for 4k gameing, when i have the LG C9 with 120 hz for exemple , i had think the fucking new gpu cards can it run @ 4k 120hz max settings even with the 10496 cuda cores...so where is the power? Sry i can see the power^^ yes more power than the 2080ti ...but wtf...iam out with this tech. that dont blow me away, by these costs. think 5nm is the key!

It makes me laugh that the PS5 is getting a lot of ridicule for being ‘huge’ from the Xbox community. I guess they have never gamed on a decent pc, this is just a graphics card and look at the size of it. I personally like BIG.

Hi Linus, long time viewer first time commenter maybe. I dont remember. I recently tried to build a similar setup following this video and it seems the motherboard in this video is the Z390 and not the Z490. I have looked at msi’s website to try to find a board capable of the four slot spacing for SLI 3090s but I cant find a z490 that looks like the one in the video. Please help?

Fk motion blur? You sound like an idiot who doesn't understand what object-based motion blur is, vs. camera-based. Can't believe you, of all people, is still parroting this anti-motion blur nonsense.

Funny that this popped on my suggested videos as I was looking to set up my free disused 970s into an SLI cause I can't afford anything that costs money. Never mind I had to buy an SLI cable off amazon because I lost the one that came with the motherboard.
