Im near a major city in georgia and at&t is the only provider of my town i am lucky I live 1000 feet from the exchange and can get 25/3 alot of people here stuck on 6/1 or 3/.5..........but I pay as much or more for 25/3 than people 10 miles away pay for cable and fiber 50/50 or 100/100.
The conversion cost is to high. Solar panels are 20ish percent efficient. Converting to electricity and then to laser to hit a earth panel back into electricity....common now. Your losing all your power in transmission and conversion.
The thing is they are trying to install the fiber on the cheap......Google has given up on specific areas in the cities they serve when it gets to an area they have to invest in real work to install the fiber. They've done it in every city.
I buy and sell way to many used pc parts and as far as I can tell about 70% of the used mining card floating around are nvidia. This story lends some insight into the investor class action against nvidia.
Love to get that 7nm vega.....but my vega 56 is killin 1440p for me. Trades blows with a 1080 at times....just undervolted with raised power limit. Honestly don't even need 2080 level performance.....all I'd do is show off benchmarks lol.
I personally believe it is impressive that they managed to squeeze that out on a die shrink. They are targeting gamers and content creators with this card which makes the 16gb vram understandable as well as 4k on newer games needing more than 8gb vram. Prices of everything are going up and AMD...
The rtx space invaders debacle continues.....if you read the newegg reviews of gigabyte Turing cards they are exceedingly more prone to space invaders than other aib's. Think they will get the issue fixed with the 2060?
