  1. I believe Scott Herkelman was trying to draw attention to the fact that Nvidia was more than happy to use their Super launch to increase margins/pricing on the 2060 cards and not even bother to compete with the 5700XT on price. Then again, that's just how I saw it.
  2. I believe you're looking at the wrong temps. I'd recommend using HWiNFO64 instead and looking at the (Tdie) readings.
  3. What do you mean? This is the first product they've ever launched without drivers. Are you seriously implying that they didn't intentionally hold them back? I also invite you to find a positive review of the GTX 1650. I can already tell the Gamers Nexus review will be the same:
  4. Yes and people were defending the practice last time saying Nvidia is fully within their rights to do what they did. Well, they got what they asked for, didn't they? ?
  5. Anyone else getting a sense of déjà vu? It's almost like this happened to Steve (HUB) in every other Turing product review that performed poorly. When you can get away with something, just keep pushing harder I guess.
  6. Well the QVL is there as an indicator of what you might expect your memory to reach. Given that there are a significant number of kits tested it would suggest that 3400 is very unlikely. It's also possible that the board hasn't been updated to show validation for the 2nd gen TR so there's that. Out of the three I'd be looking at the other two you mentioned since it's probably more of a better match. I'm not sure how they compare though. One thing you might prefer is the Taichi since it uses a Lotes socket rather than Foxconn though. Should make installation a hell of a lot easier ? I really wouldn't worry about the RAM though. Just know that you'll most likely get 2933Mhz and maybe more if you're lucky with 8 dimms. Should still perform quite well, especially if you tweak the timings.
  7. Because 8 dimms means 2 dims per channel. If you look at any Ryzen/Threadripper board you'll notice the supported speeds drops quite dramatically if you do that. My board for example has a handful of 8 dimm kits validated at 2933Mhz and those are all 3000/3200Mhz kits. So I'd say you're probably doing well if you manage to pull 3200Mhz off. Edit: So I looked at your boards QVL list and the only kits validated at 3400Mhz are done so with 2/4 modules installed.
  8. A couple of things you could do. It looks like you need a lot of RAM which means TR is probably the better option (you also won't be getting 3400Mhz working with 8 dimms). So you could opt for TR but waiting for it to go on clearance or you could wait for Ryzen 3000 which might not actually launch with a 16 core part immediately.
  9. Pretty sure there have been flying cars over a decade ago...
  10. Well what I'm saying is that if this is a high effort application of the technology then I'd be having serious concerns over whether or not it's going to be relevant. Most companies won't have the skill or resources that Square Enix have either. So what good is it if 30% of the transistors on your GPU are there solely to produce an effect that is more cheaply done by alternate means on the rest of the GPU with almost identical performance and results?
  11. The real game is trying to space out your hardware changes so that Origin doesn't lock you out of your account for 24 hours. Considering this game was heavily used to promote the Nvidia cards and Nvidia was even involved with it since one of the first trailers of the game I would say that it's probably not a low effort implementation.
  12. It most certainly is. It might be showing you a limited version because you do not have an account? I guess we'll see how this affects them in the long run but with Navi on the horizon it sounds like an impossible feat for them to achieve the same levels of revenue because margins will be limited by the necessity to compete and sales will be reduced due to the supposedly huge inventory they still need to get rid of.
  13. Two quarters ago at an earnings call Jensen said he had approximately two quarters worth of inventory and in their target adjustment that this news post is based on they claimed that the inventory in the channel was depleting as expected. Now the news article I posted suggests that there is two and potentially even more quarters of inventory sitting in the channel still and I'm genuinely unsure how that would be possible if both of his statements are to be true. Jensen has shown a lot of reluctance towards answering inventory related questions and tends to stutter a lot when asked about it. I'm just saying that his communication hasn't been close to transparent when it comes to discussing inventory and that I think he's intentionally done that to mislead shareholders who would likely be very concerned if they saw the real inventory numbers. If inventory is still a concern come May then we'll know for sure.
  14. Speaking of which. I guess I might have been onto something. These guys are suggesting that Nvidia has far more inventory than he has led investors to believe. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4237475-nvidia-strong-market-disguising-downside-potential?dr=1
