HP now says they won't have the card available to send until March :facepalm:
If I'd known Kyle was still looking, I'd have tried to send it to him! (Are you still looking? Would you take a 2080 to add some variety to your space invaders collection?)
I am still using my 1080 Ti. However, someone in my family got an HP pre-built system with a 2080 included. The video driver started crashing during GPU-intensive tasks, there was one incident where it would draw what looked like chicken wire on the screen, then the occasional BSOD, and finally...
With the continued cashflow of this project, I would expect they'd have little trouble finding a buyer. But a big publisher would mean hard deadlines and creative control, and I don't think Roberts is ready to admit he can't deliver.
This is what will happen when you purchase a knock-off middle-eastern processor! /s
But in all seriousness, this is another thing in the back of my mind when I consider purchasing AMD. While HTC has a horrible track record in terms of product support, product testing, and product pricing as of...
I did. This may be a different take from you guys, but I hope they don't ship for release day delivery, so I can cancel if the benchmarks that come out on Friday are bad.
Edit: I also ordered on the 11th, not the paper launch day.
Devil's advocate: in this day and age of sealed warrants and warrant canaries, can we trust denials from Apple and Amazon, especially if this is an ongoing investigation? Hell, the companies involved might be under pressure for purely diplomatic reasons even if the intel is cold.
The cringiest moment for me was when he used the long radiator screws (intended for use with fans) to secure the radiator to the case. "These are really long because they've got to go all the way through."
Next video: "Why is there a puddle under my PC?"
I feel a tad antsy not taking part in the pre-order madness, but I struggle to think what a review might show that would convince me to buy one. I guess the simultaneous launch of a VR headset with double the resolution of current models (Vive Pro and Pimax included), and proof this card can...
LOL, they've figured out people are waiting for Ti versions. I'm sure some will jump on that, but smart money will probably wait for a 2090 Ti or whatever actually takes the place of the x080 Ti in the lineup.
Except that this guy has been playing the whistleblower angle from the moment he was fired, going so far as to argue directly with Elon Musk in an e-mail thread. So if it's a smokescreen, he thought rather fast on his feet coming up with it. He comes off as a bit full of himself, though.
I have the EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 PSU. It made more sense when I was running two graphics cards in SLi (and briefly entertained the idea of a third for crypto mining) with a 5960X and Rampage V Extreme. Now I'm moving to a build with the following:
Intel Core i7 8086k
Asus Z370-G Gaming Wi-Fi...
Fastest 26-core Intel CPU sold by Newegg is 2.1 GHz.
Fastest 8-core Intel Xeon CPU sold by Newegg is 3.2 GHz.
The 8-core CPU is about 50% faster than the 26-core CPU.
So really, I should have said that 8-core parts will be running at 7.5 GHz.
Simply amazing, Intel's new 28-core CPU will be...
If they're really launching this at 5GHz but it fits in the same power envelope as all the other X299 parts, then either next generation is going to be something truly special, or I will hold out for the 7 GHz 8-core part that will surely follow. Intel's HCC CPUs have always trailed their...
Or that it will launch at either 4.7 GHz or 5 GHz turbo frequencies, despite the higher price?
Maybe this part will be an exception to the rule of releases past, but if I had an 8700k, I'd keep it for the higher clocks and lower heat.
Sure, it's a cash grab - just like any higher binned chip. That's all this is - higher binned speed, limited production run, cool 40th anniversary sticker.
If the price really is $425, I'd agree it's not really worth it over a $300 8700k you can pick up at MicroCenter - but that MicroCenter...
Looks like their memory is supposed to work with Aura, but the fact that this thread was posted at all means it's YMMV. Or did you mean some other way of interacting with Aura other than the Aura software?
Call me crazy, but I'm more excited about this than the 32-core ThreadRipper or the 28-core Intel prototype. The Intel prototype needed to run on chilled water to get to 5 GHz. The TR demonstration used air cooling, but those parts only come in at 3 GHz stock, and likely won't overclock much...
So this is confirmed real. There's an Intel Sweepstakes that opens 2 days, 8 hours from now, and will stay open for entry for 24 hours. 8086 of these will be given away. 50,000 are being made in total.
My question is: where is Z390? Not sure what I'll do if I wait out Computex and there are no...
