I would tend to agree with you. The only difference with the leaked information this time around has to do with the information being stolen through the hack apparently. The timelines and performance figures were taken from the data dump direclty. I hope they keep the nvlink, but there's a...
I agree to an extent. I look at this as a middle ground. If I wanted a 3060, that’s one thing. But I still want a halo card at the best value. Honestly, there’s not my my 3090 does that a 3080ti doesn’t besides some large machine learning projects. That’s doesn’t mean I don’t “want” it. I...
Didn't mean to start a flamewar here. This is still [H], and we're talking about the highest end gpus, just the best path to acquiring them.
I think I'm going to go the temporary 3080 ti route for now. My 3090 FE has served me well, but I will definitely be itching for the 4xxx series. We've...
I care about performance, but I'm ok with 20% of the year having 90% of the performance for a savings on 100% performance the next year. Part of my fear is that the 3090 ti is going to be a novelty card with very little value once the 4xxx series arrives in a few months.
The $300 does include taxes. That was my initial thought, I’d basically be getting performance and warranty for that price.
Another thought I had is downgrading to a 3080ti for a few months at $1299, take a $600 profit and use it for the 4xxx series when they become available. I have a feeling...
It’s really more of an economics question at this point. My 3090 runs well, but I’m trying to maximize performance per dollar. Are GPU prices expected to plummet anytime soon?
The 3090 ti probably won’t maintain value once the 4xxx series is released, but neither will the 3090.
If I upgrade...
I need to RMA my board due to a sound issue, but I can't find where on the motherboard the SN is. I tossed out the box cover that had the SN printed and my board is in my system with cards populating the slots. Can any save me the effort of disassembling my setup by letting me know where on...
It's older, but will get the job done. I think you'll need to buy the cable adapter.
It doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
You have deals like this: https://slickdeals.net/f/12134341-434-4-99-shipping-gigabyte-gtx-1080-8gb-may-get-additional-50-newegg-com-gift-card-439-98?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1 for a 1080 mini card which would give you 90% of the performance for $150...
I haven't done a full inventory yet, but am willing to for anyone seriously interested.
They're 2.26GHz or 2.6GHz Intel servers with SuperMicro motherboards. Most are full length, but a couple half too.
It's all or nothing, I'm trying to clean out my basement. No OS installed.
Great video overview. Maybe one day a company will come out with a dedicated path tracing card "co-processor" to reduce the need for rasterization silicon taking up space.
Imagine how much easier it would be to only have to worry about models, local light sources, global light sources, and...
This is to be expected. They couldn't meet the demand with only one supplier, so they used another with slightly lower speeds. Both chipsets are within spec, and the difference isn't all too dramatic from the graphs.
While we're at it, why not reinstate the horse and buggy for long-haul distribution? Give the construction worker a shovel instead of heavy machinery too. You'll make a lot of jobs very quickly.
The point of "progress" is efficiency. Real economic value is added by doing more work with less...
I can confirm that the voltages are off on mine too. Ryzen Master doesn't read the half steps from the looks of things.
Great job on the 4.05GHz. I tried 4.1GHz at the 1.275v but it wasn't prime stable when disk access was added to the mix. Maybe a chipset voltage adjustment would produce...
Here it is chugging away like a champ at 1.26v. 1.25 ran for about 5 minutes before it crashed, I'm going to let this run for a bit, but looks good so far. I'm thinking about pushing it past 4GHz, but maybe later.
Benched over RDP, so the numbers might be a little skewed.
Stock 2900, forgot to screenshot it.
OC at nearly 3400, so all cores are pumping at 4GHz.
And for reference. Single threaded Hyper Pi seems fine too.
I'll try lower the voltage as low as it can go first chance I get.
Another variable to add to the equation: If BTC price keeps rising, all of the predictions on when it will cease to be profitable fall through. You may mine less coins, but you'll make more money per coin.
I'm looking at the EK review and seeing 1.43 vcore. I have mine set at 1.275 (shows 1.284 cpu-z) for the same overclock 100% stable. I haven't even bothered trying to push it lower (just set it and forgot it). Any owners want to chime in if this is normal? Does [H] just have an early fab unit?
I've been running this board for about a month now with 0 stability issues at 4GHz 1.275v 1950x. Set it and forget it after dealing with the intel wifi BSOD.
I'm using an h115i, and it works well with temps under 70c load typical.
If you’re strictly gaming, go to a nearby Microsoft store, they usually have them for testing.
My friend has two side by side and enjoys them, but it really is personal preference.
For professional use, I’m not sure it’s the right choice due to the distortion.
Might be a mistake. If he ran Playstation Now, he never realized to put the new games people are likely to play first on the store. The only game that is ever played on my PS4 is FIFA. When the 18 demo came out, we had to hunt for it in the store.
