According to NVIDIA published data, the steps of the GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition model Length 313mm, height 138mm and sits 3 PCI slots wide (9.90 cm wide). In fact, it is not the tallest graphics card on the market – but it is the largest reference model – but collectively it can be said to be one of the longest, longest and heaviest on the market.
The RTX 3090 is longer than the long Xbox Series X
At the moment no one has set themselves apart from each other, but seeing that the Xbox Series X measures 301 mm and the RTX 3090 measures 313 mm high, the NVIDIA graphics card is 1 inch taller than the Microsoft console on top. And as the picture costs a thousand words, in the next picture you can see the comparison of height (from left to right), Xbox One, Xbox Series X, RTX 3090, RTX 3080, PS5, PS5 Digital Edition and -PS4.
We are dealing with a drawing card of large size and weight (2.5 kg weight nothing else and nothing less), and that is its length, height and size, something that worries the weight and volume maintained by this device, because it will not fit all PC cases on the market and, moreover, can cause problems with PCI-Express motherboard socket due to of its heavy weight, it forces almost any user who buys it to use GPU Holder to help support its weight.
Will your box match this drawing card?
You should only check the technical details in your inbox to find out; Knowing the size of the graph (313 x 138 x 99 mm), the technical features of your PC page will tell you if it supports graphs of this length. The problem is that you will also need to check the compatibility of the box with the CPU heatsinks, because this is the measure that will tell you if the RTX 3090 is very similar (as a general rule you will not have a problem, the compatibility is usually between 150 and 180mm in most cases other than minor, and this chart 138mm long).
However, as we said earlier, the thing that worries me is the weight of this GPU, and that it is 2.5 Kg. If you are looking for one of these expensive and powerful graphics cards, we no doubt recommend that you have a large box. size and, if possible, that it agrees to insert a photo card with a width of 3 slots on the verticla. Thanks to the direct support of the graphics card, you will no longer have to worry about its weight and that it could damage the PCI-Express socket on the mother board.
If this is not possible, we would definitely recommend that you get GPU support to help the box support the weight of the drawings and not the motherboard. They are very cheap and can be found in any electronics store.
