    ASUS ROG Poseidon GTX 1080 Ti Platinum Edition Part 1 @ [H]

    When you mention "Gaming Mode" and "OC Mode", I did a double take at the similar terms used to Gigabyte in their Aorus Graphics Engine software as there are 4 settings in there, the aforementioned two and an additional two of "Silent Mode" and "User Mode". Interesting standardization even if...

    Americans Are Getting Tired of Michael Bay's Transformers Films

    I get so sick of self serving snobs hating on everything that comes along and not allowing people to enjoy things. Honestly sad people with sad lives spreading the misery because they can't stand the thought that somebody might enjoy something that they failed to find enjoyment in. Some people...

    Deep Dive on NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU Archtecture - Volta

    GV100 is Quadro while V100 is Tesla, I believe? I can only wonder the normal layman's question of how this will translate to GV102.

    I'm not so sure as my Gigabyte Aorus 1080ti holds 2038mhz pretty consistently while gaming.

    New Titan ? Nandato?

    I had both the 8800 GTS 320mb and 640mb. I remember G80 fondly.

    New Titan ? Nandato?

    Yes and no about the excitement part. While it IS technically better in every way then SLI, due to it's nature it will be far better suited for splitting compute loads then graphics loads. Gaming won't benefit much over SLI in the same ways compute does. NVlink is great for HPC, but is still...

    I just bought a 1080ti, I'm going to hold out till 2019 for my next GPU, who's with me??

    This was exactly the mentality that I approached my recent build with is that the 7700K+1080Ti+1440p@165hz+Gsync combo would be extremely well balanced for longevity of high game settings versus performance. 165hz may seem a hair overkill, and later on as new games stress the 1080Ti even harder...

    THIS much is true, it's so easy now that if you buy the right parts, they overclock themselves without even any intervention on your part, granted. However, even in the cases where the motherboard automatically applies Turbo clocks of 4.5Ghz to all 4 cores instead of just one as it's supposed to...

    Then it might help if you frame them as such instead of framing "opinions" as fact that you don't know. Edit: Yanno, what? Nevermind the advice, you clearly have it under control. Carry on :)

    And what you may not get, or even believe, is that I love Ryzen and what it represents for AMD! And what it represents for Intel users as well! Ryzen's success is success for ALL of us PC gamers, because it will force Intel to price more competitively. So believe me when I say, I will...

    Good! That makes much more sense. Enjoy the Ryzen. However, you don't need to justify your preference by bashing Kaby Lake unnecessarily or in the faces of those actually using them when you, yourself, have not tech supported any or dealt with them.

    Here's where I will compromise with you, Rez, and this is it. No further. The whole Kaby Lake series DOES run very hot. It runs unnecessarily hot as Intel could have done better in it's IHS to core contact, we all know this to be true, hence I cannot deny that and wouldn't, it's truth. This hot...

    Wrong. Plenty of people running stock are NOT having these issues to determine this is NOT a chip flaw, it's a motherboard issue, clearly. I, and many others I know, have the 7700K and no problems with temperature spikes. You are off base with your assertion completely.

    You assume wrongly. I deal with the "average gamer" daily. I answer their questions, daily.

    Doc is right, I was lurking back then too. I remember the 300A overclocking days fondly, 450mhz was the first 50% CPU OC that was highly likely with most chips. This set the gold standard that I tried to keep reaching for many years and only refound again in the E6600/Q6600 era for awhile.

    Hold on then, more wait here. Intel SAID 1.52 vcore is safe or at least specced in? I'm really trying to wrap my head around this as that just seems like a CRAZY amount of vcore for a 14nm chip to survive, let alone run smoothly. That would have blown my Sandy Bridge to pieces! I guess Kaby Lake...

    Broadly, there is no problem with Intel. The problem seems limited to a small enough segment to need to look to other causes then the chip itself. Simple as that. Unless there's a bad batch, then the chip is not the issue here, clearly. There is no evidence currently to support any supposition...

    I used my example in reference to rezerekted's implication that this is wide spread and even stock users are affected.
