Installed MS Win 10 home recently for a netbook with a formated hard drive. I always use Pro. No option to use local at setup becasue I was online while installing. Went into users after setup and switched to local. Easy fix but come on...
My understanding is the DDR5 spec has ECC built in so I wonder how Intel will find a way to disable it on consumer boards and find a way to charge for enabling it? Just a layman opinion, don't know if it is possible or not.
LOL to be fair it is hard to find any references to lag vs. attenuation but they are out there. And I got that pic from an article (reviewer testing some $180 fiber cable) ...I can search again but you are not worth it. I'm sure you can find references proving me wrong with that expertise of doubt?
That is my understanding from looking at testing over longer distances. Don't care if you doubt it or not...
Here is a pic I found.
Call it what you want but longer the longer an HDMI cable is the more signal it loses due to attenuation. It can have a real impact on the quality of audio and video you hear and see at the other end. Look at some video comparisons of HDMI copper vs HDMI fiber over long runs.
The bottom line is light is faster than an electric pulse. If you want the same or lower lag at longer distances while allowing minimal signal degradation such as the best color, HDR, etc.. vs. standard copper then you want fiber HDMI.

And then reset the entire production line to make one of them old Kingpin's!
I imagine trying to get a 2080 TI Kingpin card right now is like striking gold. And when RMA'ing they tend to send an equivalent performance card back, not a free upgrade.
This is what I want.
That is not how it...
Although I understand your circumstances I bet your grandma doesn't give a shit about latency spikes she'll never know about. Sounds more like you are triggered about a non issue. 😬
PS: Glad you solved it regardless. 😁
A bad review is bad review. Bad advice is bad advice. They are doing a disservice to the community no matter how you slice it, whether they are just a builder, a youtube'r or actual reviewer. Find others that are consistent and considered fair. There are way to many good websites out there...
Yup that has never been the case unless its a new release and they have extra new ones in stock. I've never seen them return a new packaged card with an RMA. Most just want the bare card returned only, not all the extras. That's not how it works.
