    Did I get Sold a Broken 2080 Ti?

    First of all, the performance is in the normal range for the GPU, but we all want to get the best performance we can. That being a Strix, I can see why you would expect it to be on the higher end. Strix should use a binned GPU (higher performing part), but the silicon lottery has its part to...

    RTX 3090 [H] Owner's Official 3DMark Time Spy Leaderboard

    https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/70189098? I think my score might be limited due to my 34" lcd having a 100Hz max refresh. My next upgrade will be a faster lcd, been waiting for the panel quality to get better in the fast refresh types. 240hz seems a good target.

    Boeing and Airbus Warn of Risks from 5G, Ask for Implementation Delay

    People trained in the technology will evaluate what the issue is. If the "Fault" is that the instrument based landing systems are 50 years old and need equipment updates, they will probably need 5 to 10 years to get that done. Observation: If that is the case, one could argue that the...

    Nvidia announces RTX 2050 mobile GPU (not a typo)

    Maybe the performance (due to laptop cooling and power contraints) puts this Ampere chip at below Turing 2060 laptops' performance. So it is just labeled to place it in the lineup in relation to where the performance is. If you are going to buy a laptop to game on, you want to be sure to do...

    Fusion reactor actually put out more energy than it consumed for the first time ever

    1 billion watts = 1 Gigawatt 1 trillion watts = 1 Terawatt, professor

    Fusion reactor actually put out more energy than it consumed for the first time ever

    You calculated that backwards professor. it would take 0.827 seconds (Going to assume the math is right)to = 1.21 Gigawatts. The actual time a bolt lasts, according to you, is a 10th of a microsecond, or .0000001 seconds, which would take 8,270,000 to add up to 1.21 Gigawatts... Lightning...

    Fusion reactor actually put out more energy than it consumed for the first time ever

    Relatively, lightning is not all that much energy. 1 bolt = ~1 billion joules of energy. The average American household consumes 41 billion (4.14*10^10) joules each year. Put another way, 1 kWh = 3.6 million Joules, so 1 bolt of lightning is ~ 277.8 KilowattHours. Certainly not 1.21 Gigawatts...

    Nvidia asking US gov to exempt GPUs from tariffs

    Video cards are not Luxury goods. No idea who started that mentality regarding them. Definition: Luxury goods, also called superior goods, are products with a demand that is directly related to consumer income exponentially. A luxury Video Card would cost $15,000. Prices are high but it's...

    RTX A2000 announced - fastest low-profile GPU

    Does the 2000 mean its based on a Turing chip? Maybe a die shrunk Turing? Or is it Ampere? I wonder if getting these into small formfactor requires taking a 2080ti or 3080ti level chip (top binned chips) and just under volting/underclocking to fit the power envelope and available cooling. Or...

    Nvidia asking US gov to exempt GPUs from tariffs

    The OEM's like Asus need this for their cards to be price competitive with Founders Editions. It's OEM cards that are 25% taxed, not nVidia's. The price in OEM cards would likely drop immediately, if you can find them that is. The knowledge that the buy price is less would prompt scalpers to...

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    You can make the same (accusations) about all of the other browsers. And Firefox has had it's share of nasty 0-days. Edge is fine. People like being in the 'cool club' and jump on every bandwagon that passes by.

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    The more I think about it, the more it sounds like bullshit. But, having never used a streaming game service, I have a few questions: Can you go into the game settings and adjust anything? Any settings for the visual quality? Because if you can, obviously it could impact FPS. But I think my...

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    Tiered performance makes sense. That might not be what they are doing if you can't still buy the cheaper one. But having a few levels of price/performance is logical.
