It's nearly 4pm on a sunny Saturday afternoon and I am working yet again, but I absolutely love it -- on the bleeding edge of all of these GeForce RTX 3090 benchmark leaks.
VideoCardz reported one only minutes ago, and right after I had that story out and then the story on GIGABYTE's new GeForce RTX 3090 TURBO with its interesting blower-style design, we have even more benchmark leaks on NVIDIA's new 8K gaming beast: the GeForce RTX 3090.
There's a bunch of 3DMark screenshots and benchmarks to scour over, but the most interesting part of this is a member of the Overclock.net forums 'vmanuelgm' and his post about modding the RTX 3090. He has a GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3090 Gaming OC before launch, and reportedly successfully shunt modded the card.

This increased the power consumption on the card from 390W to a huge 550W... wowzers. I want to do this to a GeForce RTX 3090 as soon as I get one.
