    Testing: 1080 GTX SLI HB + 970 GTX PHYSX PCIE 3.0 Scaling at 4K Resolution

    Right we know tests, but there some variance between sites, and also the 1080 GTX is almost twice as fast as the 980, so it has to tested to see if it saturates the lanes or not, especially 4k and above. So far the 1080 GTX can handle basically any game, not all at 144hz or etc, but the quality...

    Testing: 1080 GTX SLI HB + 970 GTX PHYSX PCIE 3.0 Scaling at 4K Resolution

    Yea def one if not my fav game of 2016. Love me some Pharah :). Brings back the Quake days. Anyhow messaging TorryHolt81, so we can do the tests. Open Question: Does anyone know if its normal for the second card, to idle at PCIE Gen 1.1? I am going to set the computer into SLI and see if...

    Testing: 1080 GTX SLI HB + 970 GTX PHYSX PCIE 3.0 Scaling at 4K Resolution

    Hey Hey, I played before too, 1.6 was just the final version that stuck haha. Steam didn't even exist and when it did, was the buggiest piece of crap I had ever seen lol. TorryHolt81 , Do you have 3DMark, 3DMark Vantage, 3D Mark 11, Uni Engine, etc? Let's pick a few applications, and or games...

    Steam Link $19.99 @ 'Zon

    Yea, and the worst thing is, even with a good router, it's still so so. I have the Asus RT-AC5300 Tri-Band 4x4 AC5300, which is one of the best prosumer routers available to my knowledge, and was still so so. Just FYI. Lastly I believe you can also sync the Steam controller to it, without the...

    Yup, Computer Engineer, I actually had my own IT Hardware site, and I actually worked in the industry, helping create computer cases, mice, and keyboards etc. I may bring it back, if I have a chance. And yup loved me some Rocket Arena 3 back in the day. And Quake 2. Though at those days I...

    Steam Link $19.99 @ 'Zon

    I got a steam link at Valve's Winter Sale. I dig it. Its a nice piece of hardware. And great for casual couch gaming. Wifi is so so, but works, and rj45 worked fine.

    Testing: 1080 GTX SLI HB + 970 GTX PHYSX PCIE 3.0 Scaling at 4K Resolution

    Not recently, with my 970 GTX, didn't have any major lag problems. I play hitscan chars, recently in Overwatch game, and was able to hit the boxes pretty well. I don't think it's as bad. Next upgrade I plan on a 144hz+ monitors, So I'll let you know. I'll also try playing with just the 1080 GTX...

    Testing: 1080 GTX SLI HB + 970 GTX PHYSX PCIE 3.0 Scaling at 4K Resolution

    I never been a huge fan of SLI or Crossfire either. Both have given me alot of headaches, but I been using them since close to launch. The dollar value isn't there, but for pushing a few more frames use it anyhow. Had its high point in the beginning, and low points, with the frame pacing issues...

    Testing: 1080 GTX SLI HB + 970 GTX PHYSX PCIE 3.0 Scaling at 4K Resolution

    Yup, cards now reporting Gen3. Not sure why Asus in their infinite wisdom defaulted to Gen2, but good to go now :).

    Testing: 1080 GTX SLI HB + 970 GTX PHYSX PCIE 3.0 Scaling at 4K Resolution

    No, had it on Auto, will review Torry's post. If its Gen3, then it shouldn't because Gen3 PCIE = 16x Gen2. But having 8x Gen2 on a 1080 GTX. I am sure affects performance. Cool, I am still installing software, but will do. Most likely tomorrow or so, I can start testing. Def not worth it, but...

    Wooo awesome Torry, Keep me posted. And if you have any questions lmk, as I assembled the Rampage already. I did have to buy a USB Header expansion. So you may want to look at that, if you have a bunch of Corsair link, etc stuff. The board has 2 headers, but one gets taken for the SupremeFX...

    Testing: 1080 GTX SLI HB + 970 GTX PHYSX PCIE 3.0 Scaling at 4K Resolution

    I can test reference? All I have to do is shut off the PCIE lanes via motherboard dipswitches, and only run SLI *(Unless that doesn't free up lanes). That should give me a 16x / 8x, (not sure if I can force 16x 16x shutting all other lanes.) Or worst case scenario, test only a single 1080 GTX at...

    Hi guys, Because I have been reading contradictory information on the subject. I decided to test it myself. It still seems this article, and logic would make me agree with it. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_1080_PCI_Express_Scaling/25.html but some are reporting that...

    Buy Graphics card now on BF/CM or wait?

    Yea I know, I did it mostly as stupid as it sounds for the extra DP Connector.I wanted all my cards to be DP, as I want to support the standard, but this 970 GTX only has 1 DP port. So I figured the best way to connect would be: 2x DP for my Side 2560x1080 1x DP for my future 4K Monitor 2x...

    Buy Graphics card now on BF/CM or wait?

    Ok, so 780 ti kp is out, Right now I am eyeing the MSI golden 970s. My budget for both cards is $1200, or could go tri sli, I could go 980 gtx sli also, but doesnt seem to be worth it, hence why I thought 970s are the sweet spot. Thanks for the feedback guys, I am preparing to buy between F - M...

    Buy Graphics card now on BF/CM or wait?

    I need sli due to 6 monitors, also the 780 ti kingpin is heavily discounted but seems like a waste at 3gb and slightly more expensive. Any opinions guys if I do buy anything better than the 970s atm?

    Buy Graphics card now on BF/CM or wait?

    So like many others I am sure, I am contemplating pulling the trigger on graphics cards this Black Friday / Cyber Money, 2 of them in SLI. Thinking of picking up 2 GeForce 970's and calling it a day until Pascal +, where we should have a huge jump. I really wish 20nm was here, it would make...

    FS: OnePlus One - 64GB - Sandstone Black Invite

    Lol, thanks, I get their point of view, but I think if they take their emotions mostly due to the fact they don't have the invites. They would see how silly it is to be mad. It's tempting, I am going to let them cook a little further, but if no one bites, I don't mind losing a little cash for...

    FS: OnePlus One - 64GB - Sandstone Black Invite

    Its luck of the draw unfortunately. In which way? If your miffed that people have something you don't have? Its common, and like others posted, expected. You'd likely do the same if you had the same circumstances. Not sure, hopefully that doesn't happen. I feel for you in regards you'd...

    I like you, it's basically my second comment expanded. Back in the day, I had the same ethical issue with Dell Coupons. Do you guys remember when it actually made sense to buy Dell % off coupons from ebay? I could have saved money when I bought my 30in, if I had done that. I got close to the...

    FS: OnePlus One - 64GB - Sandstone Black Invite

    I am expecting for them to sell at $50, anything above is bonus. I look at more as it's in rarity. Its the same thing when the PS3 launched, and people paid over $1000, to be first to own. I found it absurd myself, but like you mentioned this what a free market generates. I never been one to...

    It's a limited commodity that's transferable. Your entitled to your opinion, but I honestly don't understand what's the problem. Some people want the chance, and they can vote with their wallet. As far as EBAY's TOS, afaik its fine, and many people have sold there, including other members...

    Auctions are for the invite only, they expire in 6 days from today, and apparently you have 24 hours to claim your intention to buy the phone. I will send code as soon as payment is received. Funds will be used for purchasing a GeForce 880 GTX when it comes out, it will go to a good cause...

    MSI Z87 XPOWER LGA1150: Error Code A2 or A/E

Also wondering if I should or can update the bios. The A/E code hangs the motherboard before there is...

    Samsung 840 non-Pro 500GB $260

    Whats the practical saturation for a embeded controller guys (Z77, etc)? Basically I used my 1680ix in the past, but I'd imagine raid 0 4 of these non pro, would essentially max out the PCIE bus anyhow, so no reason to buy the pro model in this scenario correct? I need 2TB of storage, I know SSD...

    Dell S2740L - $250 Free Ship - BestBuy

    I have a Dell 30, and the 27. It's a great monitor, I am very satisfied with it. Doesn't compare to the 30, but for basic tasks, I use it for work (minus graphic design). It's great. And looks very nice imo.
