Think it's just the fact the 3090 is a very big card.
From a quick google - "By far the largest is RTX 3090 - the card is 31.3 cm long, 13.8 cm wide and takes up to three slots on the motherboard. "

Edit:

Linus must be excited because he's not normally this annoying.

I was going to make a 3090 joke.

But you wouldn't get it.

I'm here all night.

Unfortunately.

As with a number of recent Nvidia card launches, not enough supply to meet demand, and there are scalpers who hoovered up a lot of the first wave to sell online again for crazy money.

Might be good for AMD. I think they're launching their next range next month, and if they're the only cards that can be got, then the almost guaranteed inferiority of their cards mightn't matter as much.

The reviews are stating it's a bad port. There's also no goodies or manuals given like a lot of other GOG titles have... which is actually important for MGS1 because of the codec call that tells you to check the case. I'll be skipping this one. What a shame.

Jut googled how to find the code and it was pointed out that it's one of the screenshots posted. Though I doubt they changed it to say that.

Being a bad port is more my concern. Users are recommending fan patches. Not something I'd expect for a modern release. As for the the case and code... it's a minor thing but I expected higher standards from GOG. Just look at this Legend of Grimrock stuff I got:




Lots of games on there have old manuals that are a joy to look through. The blank map is insane for hardcore runs of LOG. Then again this might not be GOG's responsibility. Konami probably putting in absolutely no effort with their IPs as usual.

Oh I'm not defending it.
Though isn't GoG's thing that they take older games and get them working on pc without changing the game? So they use the original PC version instead of doing a port.
They probably are aware of fan patches but they probably can't use them or link them.
Have they ever released a game that was never on pc?

I never picked up the Devil May Cry HD collection as the third game is a notoriously horrid PC port. I'll probably leave this as well. If there are fan patches then it stands to reason that someone could either have incorporated them or fixed the game themselves before dumping it on GOG. Poor form on GOG's part IMO.
