    6900 xt won’t boot on PCIE1

    The classic fix - moved from MSI to ASUS. :ROFLMAO: I sadly have done the same, recently. Used to be a hardcore MSI guy (back when the MSI Lightning cards were out and their awesome X99 XPOWER boards)...but have slowly moved back to ASUS even though they pissed me off years ago. I'm sure I'll...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    MN Micro Center had 5 of the 4090 TUF OC (the expensive ones) this morning when I was there - 10 of the 4080 TUF Gaming. The 4090s were gone within an hour and the 4080s are moving briskly.

    One Weird Trick Relaunching RTX 4080 12GB as 4070 Ti

    I mean...it's true. Just in reverse. The 3080 12GB had more cores than the 3080 10GB.

    One Weird Trick Relaunching RTX 4080 12GB as 4070 Ti

    You go from "grossly misleading" to "pushing it" - depending on the use case it hits that 2x-4x mark. A quick google found 2x pretty easily. I don't think we can call NVIDIA out too much for that stuff.

    Very cool! Me too. I bought mine at Micro Center (MN) last week... Maybe the new BIOS revisions coming out has something to do with how to unlock it??? EXCITE. https://hardforum.com/threads/new-asus-bios-enables-curve-optimizer-for-5800x3d.2023712/

    One Weird Trick Relaunching RTX 4080 12GB as 4070 Ti

    Yup. I bought a 4080 STRIX. It's $50 more to get an RTX 4090 FE - but where do I buy that card? Plus, I already have one (and a 4090 STRIX). Also a proud (former) RTX 3090 Ti (x2) owner. :) It is an awesome card!

    New ASUS BIOS Enables Curve Optimizer for 5800X3D

    Someone on reddit said that was what it said for their board, too - it is the standard cryptic info that they post. They said when they installed it - it was there!

    Yuuuup. Happened to me with my 6900 XT. Lots of issues, unfortunately. AMD isn't an angel, either. $1,000 consumer GPUs are still in their space.

    980 Pros are awesome. I have at least 6 of them in 2TB config. The SN850X is just better and - 4TB. Excited for the 990 Pro 4TB!

    GPU pricing is on the rise, again. NVIDIA played the situation perfectly (well, considering that they caused it, initially - not perfect - but after that flub they've been masterful).

    That’s the way. SN850X 4TB was $375 @ WD. Worth the $100 easily for me. Can’t go back to crap hanging off SATA.

    Who here is keeping their 3 series and skipping 4 series nV cards?

    Not me. Got rid of my EVGA cards as support will very likely diminish over time. Have a 4090 STRIX (7950X), 4080 STRIX (5800X3D), and a 4090 Founders Edition (5800X3D). NVIDIA brought it this gen in terms of performance. That’s all that I care about.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    As long as you are enjoying the performance - I wouldn’t worry about bottlenecks. Just know that now is an incredible time to be buying a CPU. Prices are dropping everywhere and you just so happen to have one of the most flexible platforms around in AM4. :) EDIT: oops didn’t realize that was a...
