    rtx 2070 bad performance

    Both Unigine and Userbenchmark are reporting 4GB of VRAM instead of 8. That seems strange... EDIT: To correct myself, userbenchmark is reporting equal to OR MORE than 4GB. Which it seems to do with certain other builds as well. For example: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/13434833
  2. Stay unless you absolutely need 8 threads at reduced speeds. Which I see no reason why you would.
  3. TLDR; Because with Polaris the performance isn't there and with Vega the price has been too high.

    is the RTX 2080 worth it over 1080Ti?

    I would just get a nice 10-series card at a nice discount. Fuck RTX, at least for now.
  5. You can find a few threads on different forums, but no one source for all info in this case. Certain reviewers actually take pictures of the motherboards without heatsinks. This can be helpful in identifying the vrm components, but it can be very very hard. "Luckily" many companies reuse their VRMs. For example, Asus Z370-A, Strix Z370E, Z370F, Z370G all share the same 4 phase VcoreVRM. So you can often find specs by proxy, so to speak.

    Gaming Advantage through RTX?

    It seems reasonable to think this is the case. And it's fucking disgusting. One could make dedicated RTX servers for Battlefield V for example, but I would think a possible lack of users means fewer people using the dedicated servers - rendering RTX a premium feature that cannibalizes itself. I would like this, but given the "support" Jensen Huang claimed Nvidia provides the developer community, it doesn't seem likely.
  7. For stock operation, mostly yes. But because brands believe it's easier to sell looks than performance, mid-priced boards have more bling than performance. An oc'd 8700K can draw 250w. Most z370 boards aren't able to handle that under normal circumstances. Could you link me a web shop where you'd likely buy it from? Not sure which country you're from.
  8. Both are equally bad IMO. G is micro-atx, and has a version with and without wifi/bluetooth. The F model also has this but with wifi/bluetooth it's the strix G. (Edit: No, it's the strix E) There are some differences when it comes to USB ports, the F model has more of them, but no USB-C. Also the F has a m.2 heatsink. Both have the same 4-phase Vcore VRM, which is not suitable for 24/7 overclocking. So if you care about overclocking, look for something with better VRM. If not, go ahead. EDIT2: Oh, and the G doesn't have any RGB headers. The F has 3, two standard 12V and one adressable RGB header. EDIT3: And of course, the G has fewer fan headers.

    RM550x or EVGA 550W G2 or EVGA 650W G3?

    Haven't used any of these but an RM550x would be my best guess. G2 is rumored to be loud and G3 to have no overcurrent and over temperature protections.

    250 watts good?

    Fixed it. That said, Dell is probably not the worst company in this aspect.

    CPU Giveaway pays out early!

    Only when the m.2s are in use. You haven't said that you use any m.2s?
  12. Not a lot of CPUs require more than 240w which is what a 4pin should be able to deliver. This in itself shouldn't be a problem. But the point that it's probably a shit PSU is very probably true.

    Read this. NOW!

    No. It's about the quadros.
  14. Moving for the first time ever in a week... Far away from friends and family. Will be weird.
