Is RTX 3090 worth it?

Officially, the RTX 3090 costs $800 more than the RTX 3080; nearly $300 more than the RTX 3080 Ti (which is also more available thanks to a reduced mining hashrate); and $500 more than the AMD RX 6900 XT. Does it deliver the performance worth its expensiveness? In other words, is an additional 10-12 GB of non-functional VRAM worth $800?

First, welcome to the club! I started mining a couple years ago and have made plenty of profits out of it.

He’s been more passionately involved in mining and for way longer than me, close to 6 years now. Is he more qualified to write this piece? Who cares?
