What is the difference? RTX 3090 Strix Vs RTX Strix 3090 OC

Hello.

I got a lucky ordre on a RTX 3090 Strix, But I can see there is also a version that is called RTX 3090 Strix OC.

what is the difference?

THE PCB, anything should be the same, as I can see the only difference is that the Strix OC just come with a higher OC out of the box, and that is the only thing? you can even put the Strix OC bios on the Strix card I guss? as it is the same card?

Asus RTX 3090 Strix OC : https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/ROG-STRIX-RTX3090-24G-GAMING/

Hope some one reply, thanks 🙂

OC means Overclocked.

I know, but that is not my Qustion, that is the design of the PCB. as I can see the power design/PCB everything should be the same, the other version is just OC out of the box I guss?

Im gonna use it for LN2.

OC one is clocked at higher speed out of the box.

I'd like to know this too, does the OC model literally come with an OC in the BIOS (100mhz or so) which can easily be replicated in MSI Afterburner for the standard Rog Strix 3090? But everything else - PCB / chip quality etc all exactly the same between the two models?

The OC version is overclocked higher out of the box than the standard versions. Otherwise, everything else is the same.

Is that rumor true that ASUS hasn`t started shipping the non-OC versions of Strix 3090 and 3080?

I dont know about rumours, however Ive ordered a 3090 non-OC strix card from Scan-UK as soon as it went live, and was told my queue placement is 19th. This was on 24th September... My queue placement now is still 19th. Which means Scan hadnt received any non-oc strix 3090s. It would seem silly to me to only manufacture the OC models and begin with the non-oc once the demand is met? Does anyone know anything more?

An update to this, Scan UK did receive a shipment of around 17 asus cards yesterday (Across all models) and now my queue placement is 17. So it does seem non-oc models are actually being shipped. Just few and far-inbetween
