    HDR does not work at all on macOS when using the adapter, and it defaults to YCbCr with no way to change to RGB without an EDID override.

    Burn-in is a non-issue. I used a B7 on the desktop with HDR always enabled at ~140 nits for years and didn't take a single protective measure. I left it on with static browser icons and taskbar for thousands of hours without any visible burn-in.

    There's a cable version with the adapter integrated.

    I believe the GPU under macOS cannot handle tightened non-standard timings like 1440p 144 Hz and 8-bit RGB 4K 120 Hz over DisplayPort 1.4. 1440p monitors like the PG278Q are limited to 120 Hz. I filed a bug report and one of the engineers responded that it's not supported by the "hardware"...

    No, macOS doesn't support the 4K 120 Hz timings on this adapter, though you can see it in the EDID on macOS. Others have reported that it works fine in Boot Camp with the Radeon drivers. I have the exact adapter you linked. I have a 2019 MBP 16" running Big Sur.

    I have this adapter for my MacBook, but have no way of testing it on my 3090 without a DisplayPort to female USB-C adapter.

    Just received OTA firmware update 03.21.18 on my CX. The installation failed with "Software update cannot be applied to this TV". Now it doesn't detect the update anymore. It has a "Fine Tune Dark Areas" feature to partially correct raised blacks in VRR...

    Mind bending problem - Random restarts

    You need to repeatedly start and stop the test, not run the test continuously. Use different combinations of the AVX settings in Prime95.

    A pcie 3.0 M2 drive should work in a 4.0 slot right?

    The Gen 4 M.2 slot on your board is wired directly to the CPU and not the chipset. The 11th gen CPUs have 20 PCIe lanes, while 10th gen CPUs have only 16 PCIe lanes. So, the slot is not connected to your 10th gen CPU at all. Higher end motherboards may have a PCIe switch chip to share 16 lanes...

    Mind bending problem - Random restarts

    Spontaneous restarts without a BSOD could be the CPU crashing due to voltage changes between high & low load. It's possible the motherboard has default settings that don't follow Intel specifications and degraded the CPU, or has AVX ratios too high. You can test this in Prime95 with Small FFTs...

    GDDR5X vs. HBM vs. HBM2

    That's because Big Navi uses slower GDDR than Ampere, and Infinity Cache makes up for it. If the VRAM had the same performance as Ampere's, Infinity Cache would probably deliver a bigger performance uplift.

    BEWARE: WD Red Pro in desktop Use - Replacement suggestions?

    It could also be vibration. I had a particular PC case which killed a desktop class drive every few months in my 6x drive RAID array. The WD Red Pro has firmware optimized for high drive counts in a single chassis, but you never know. The desktop drives will definitely fail fast if stacked in a...

    GDDR5X vs. HBM vs. HBM2

    The performance difference is negligible compared to a bigger GPU with more shaders. Infinity Cache on Big Navi makes a bigger difference than HBM vs GDDR, at least in gaming. The difference in power and heat is a few watts - negligible compared to the GPU. Any GPU will be painfully slow in 4...

    My CX gets mild image retention after a few weeks if I use the Blank Screen screensaver rather than letting it power off. It clears up after powering it off.
