    National Day of Unplugging March 5th 6th

    I mostly unintentionally did this yesterday by sleeping through most of the day, so that's all you'll get out of me.

    RTX 3080 vs Radeon 6800 XT - VR testing

    Gonna be great to test out performance once Nvidia gets the stuttering and lag issues fixed. It's a mess right now, completely unplayable experience in VR.

    Xbox series X controllers on sale at $40

    Have yet to see play and charge kits specifically for this controller, but rechargeable battery packs will work. Xbox One kits aren't backwards compatible due to the differing shape of the pack cover, unfortunately.

    Xbox series X controllers on sale at $40

    AA batteries are standard on this controller, so no play and charge cable included. The dongle requires a Windows update, but that's no big deal. Can confirm. However if the Bluetooth device on your motherboard (or some third party dongle) is inadequate, connectivity will be spotty at best. Ask...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    Looked into changing the video memory target setting via config.ini, that seemed to help a bit. Bounces between decently smooth and slowdowns a bit. DLSS either balanaced or performance.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    Campaign runs like dog shit for me on ultrawide 1440p with a 3080, 457.30 drivers. Turning off ray tracing helped, but I'm seeing others with good performance results, so that's annoying.

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    That's fair. I was just plugging it in to test it out, don't have much time to play tonight.

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    No complaints here, much better than the Wraith Prism. When I had my 2080Ti I was trying to eek out every bit of cooling I could get since that card would get into the 80s under heavy load, so removed any potential CPU heat from the mix. Had the 1st version on the 6600K and it was super cool and...

    One can now check when they signed up for each SKU in the EVGA queue system. 9/16 was the first day to do so. https://twitter.com/EVGA_JacobF/status/1314077075028860934?s=19

    RTX 3090!!

    On board with others in the thread: I'm happy you feel good about the card. But very disappointed it does not make you [H]ard.

    Anyone that ordered a 3080 from Provantage get an update or ETA?

    Contacted yesterday about my order since I had to update my CC info. On backorder... But the card I ordered is one with all shitty POSCAPs so decided to email to cancel the order. Would suggest anyone else who has tried to order find their model and figure out which capacitors are being used.

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    EVGA put up more XC3 models again today, site promptly chugged for half an hour before they declared all sold out. Had one in cart and had shipping info, too. :(

    Anyone that ordered a 3080 from Provantage get an update or ETA?

    Went with a Gigabyte Eagle and received the same email. Didn't reach out, though I'm expecting some sort of update as stock replenishes. Who knows how many orders they've received, and what one's place in line is.

    Noticed that also. Best guess is they'll fulfill orders as they come in until they run out of stock. Won't stop me from trying in the morning also.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    If nvidia's claims of better performance, regardless of how slight, than a 2080 Ti, then that 500 bucks will make you satisfied with your purchase. Having gone from a 1070 with strong OC to a 2080 Ti to power an ultrawide 1440p 120Hz monitor, pretty much everything crumbled under that card I...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Can anyone confirm how loud those cards were/are? A dB measurement reading only goes so far. Good, won't have to swap out my couple month old B450 board for an X570. Also, is this a backhanded remark at AMD? You know, since they have PCI-E 4.0 boards on the market and Intel is still MIA.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Having just sold my 2080 Ti for a bit more than that, fingers crossed for 20-30% more performance and ideally cooler temps. Can't say no to a "free" upgrade. You've got to label that NSFW. One only has so much desk to hide under.

    (Rumor) NVIDIA Ampere Launch Window Leak

    If the 10/20GB variants of a 3080 is true, I'll be more satisfied in picking up a 20GB to replace the 2080 Ti than "having" to replace it with a 10GB card. I'm down for this.

    What cpu to get? 3600, 3800 or 3900.. cooling is not an issue..

    Are you running anything other than gaming? No? 3600. If doing other production tasks, 3700X.

    Why did YOU choose AMD for your processor?

    Put the cash down for a complete new system tonight, including a 3700X and B450 board. Reasonings: 1) Currently on that Skylake chipset which Intel is beating into the ground. No worthwhile offerings from team blue for what looks like some time. 2) Realized since putting that original build...

    Potentially, though I haven't seen a Walmart carry PC games beyond the standard staples (LoL, WoW, Diablo, etc.) and little crap bargain games in a long time. Likely not.
