Yes, it is shielded. This particular position is temporary - I'm building a new system in a CaseLabs TH10 Magnum case and will be moving the watercooling stuff away from the sound card. That being said, I don't notice any signal distortion or inteference as it is.
The specific problems in question here are isolated to the RDNA cards, not your Vega 56 or the Polaris GPUs.
I haven't had a single issue with my NVIDIA cards across multiple systems and generations. My AMD cards have also been pretty good, but only in single GPU. Dual GPU was always a mess...
I don't remember any sort of political or "woke culture" outrage over this game at all.
CliffyB has said some dumb shit over the years and has a lot of detractors for that, sure, but a high-skill arena shooter isn't really what the market wants anymore. He's a creative guy with bad business...
Let me preface this by saying I want Intel to be successful in graphics because we are in dire need of a true competitor to NVIDIA.
That being said - I will not be excited about these chips until we have full retail variants running retail drivers in retail games, in hand by objective third...
GFE isn't a replacement for the control panel so pushing it to the Windows Store has nothing to do with GFE. They stated it was due to some policy changes from MS in the latest build of Windows 10, but I have no idea. I installed it from the Windows Store and it was working fine after that.
It was more of a tongue in cheek comment about their current fab capabilities, not a shot at you :)
It makes sense for them to farm out their GPU production to start with since they don't have anything tailored for that process and they can't meet demand for their CPUs as it is.
Close to 2080 Ti performance, delivered in 2020, isn't really exciting unless it's $500-600. To me personally, anyway. And at this point with NVIDIA I'm waiting on the 3000 series, RTX is not worth the money for the upgrade.
I hope I am surprised.
Amazon treats employees poorly
NewEgg has terrible business practices and shitty user market and slow shipping
MicroCenter does not exist in my state
Where else can I buy from that has good prices and reasonable shipping? I buy watercooling parts from Performance-PCs but I am not...
