    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    +1. A buddy of mine asked me last week what games I was looking forward. None was the answer (on PC at least, have maybe a few on Switch).

    Where can I get such a code? I already got my card (without using the discount...) so someone else might as well use it.

    Can you get half RTX3080 performance for half the price? Asus TUF RTX 3060 review

    Choosing between 2 GPUs - help on 2 basic principles needed

    Sandwich refers to the layout of the case. Dan A1, Formd T1 and Ghost S1 are all sandwich layouts. Which means you have the GPU on one side and the mobo, cpu etc on the other.

    Choosing between 2 GPUs - help on 2 basic principles needed

    I'm pretty sure Optimum Tech tested the ref design in an SFF case (the T1 I believe). I would avoid reference in a sandwich layout, personally. Edit: oh, 3070. Does that cooler blow through like the 3080s and 3090s?

    Is 10gb VRAM really enough for 1440p?

    Cold War has allocated all available VRAM on every system/GPU I've ran it on. 11 on 1080Ti, 10 on 3080 (with 4K pack), 6GB on 1060 and 8GB on 580. Every single time. 3440x1440, 1080p. Even 720p IIRC.

    RTX 3060 12GB

    We built a rig for my wife spring 2018 and I remember paying a little over 400 CAD for a 1060. Felt absolutely gutted back then. Sold it for 300 a couple weeks ago (almost 3 years later). Edit: RAM prices were also batshit crazy IIRC. As in almost double year-on-year (had built mine a year before).

    I'm not even mad ... that's amazing

    They shipped my 3080 pretty well. Its box bubble wrapped inside another box. Crossed the continent just fine.

    EVGA Queue Discussion

    Got 3 emails from EVGA so far. Only signed up for the initial 3080 models (no Hybrid, WC or Kingpin) and the initial 3060 Tis for a buddy. Got a mail for a 3080 XC3 Ultra which I have in my rig. The model I wanted, too, after FE... Nov 16th. Also got a mail for 2 3060Tis, the 2 fans XC version...

    Evga RMA Process.

    I contacted them via email during Xmas time about unusual whining with my card (which turned out being an issue with the electricity in the room I moved my office in) and they replied the next day or the one after with an RMA ticket already opened and everything if I ever wanted to go that...

    So.....who's buying a 3070?

    3070 will be great for 1440p 144hz! What are you upgrading from?

    Running 2 graphics cards?

    Since both will use the same drivers it shouldn't be too much trouble. You also have the iGPU option (make sure it's activated in bios) as a last resort.

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    Sony wants to bring more exclusives to PC as well.

    8 or 12 gigs

    My first GPU I bought was a 8500LE 128MB, instead of IIRC a 9600 or something. I, however, had the excuse of being 13 and having no smartphone at that time😅

    8 or 12 gigs

    3060Ti should be closer to 3070 than 3060 going by the specs.

    I Bought an RTX 3060 Ti Today!

    Just got the email from EVGA for the 3060Ti. 2 fans model. We ultimately found one in store on release day so I don't need it but they are sending emails for the queue.

    What's with these prices? Just trying to find a simple card for wife and i'm floored at the pricing.

    Did they flat out stopped Turing production or did they keep making them but for OEMs? Can't remember. I guess it's not impossible either that such OEMs as Dell still have stock of Turing.
