ASUS ROG RTX 4090 Matrix Platinum Preview

ASUS ROG RTX 4090 Matrix Platinum Preview


When you’ve been reviewing graphics cards as long as we have you can occasionally get a product arrive that whisks you back in time to things which, when considering them, had slipped away without you even noticing. One such product is the newest addition to the ASUS range, the RTX 4090 Matrix.

What does it remind us of, you ask? Well for the longest time whenever there was a new graphics card launched, there was usually an accompanying ASUS model which took the base architecture and absolutely threw everything they could at it. We’re thinking of the Matrix GTX 780 Ti. The Matrix R9 280 X and even the Matrix 5870 Platinum. That’s without looking to other crazy ASUS ROG cards such as the GTX 580 MARS II. For a while there we were awash with incredibly capable graphics cards with price tags to match.

Why exactly that concept disappeared from the ASUS range is something of a mystery. Whether it was the main manufacturers, AMD and Nvidia, getting their act together to the point that a specialist version wasn’t bringing enough new to the table, or whether it simply was a matter of the global financial crisis rendering the cost involved too expensive, we don’t know.

What we do know is that the Matrix name is back, and in keeping with their tradition ASUS have applied it to the fastest GPU currently available on the planet, the Nvidia RTX 4090. With monstrous performance and a price tag to match, it’s very much for those of you who won’t put up with anything but the very best.

Whilst we await our full review, we couldn’t resist giving you a preview of upcoming things on OC3D. If only to give you a chance to work out how many kidneys you really need, or which of your children you could live without. After all, a RTX 4090 is an expensive purchase. A RTX 4090 with all the ROG trimmings and a triple fan AIO doubly so.
