    No it doesn't. It's elevated by the capacitors on the bottom. Intel chips do not lay flush with a table either.

    I'm aware of that, but it is too high off the table for that to be the case, and generally intel cpus will not sit perfectly flat like that whereas a cpu on an array of pins will.

    last time i checked. XEONs didnt have AMD stamped onto the IHS.... AMD CPUs often does.

    also, you can see that it's not sitting flat on the table, the pcb is elevated because it has pins. disproves that sandy bridge xeon bs yet again.

    Because you could achieve GTX 1080 performance in games that support SLI without paying as much.

    That's been a thing for a while, I ran 660tis in SLI and 970s in SLI previously for just that reason, honestly I think it's just so that they can lower the amount of users going with an SLI config so that they can put SLI optimization as a lower priority to cut costs for driver development.

    [Insert massive rant here]


    FFS. Please Jesus. I have $150 USD Sennheiser Headphones. Not cheap garbage. It's not easy for me to buy new $150 USB-C headphones and why should I?

    Same here, i've got beyerdynamics, AKGs and sennheisers.... no way i'm dealing with this bs. If there's not a headphone jack I'll just buy a phone that has one.

    Backing up to pc is a gimmick

    flashing roms is a gimmick

    bluetooth is the future

    lossy is more than good enough therefore already the best solution 

    not sure you understand what lossy means.... Also, backing up your stuff isn't a gimmic lol it's just a good practice.

    Unpopular opinion: Get rid of both the 3.5mm jack and USB connection in favor of better water and dust proofing. Wireless charging, blue-tooth, Wifi and NFC offer more than enough connectivity. 

    And what will you do if you ever want to back up your phone to a pc or flash a rom.... bluetooth headphones suck too btw. Way too lossy.

    If you want it, make sure that you put it to good use, which means heavily OC it and try to hit 2300MHz on it. Lower temps will help it, so will a big power delivery (say, dual 8-pin and enough VRMs).


    Otherwise, you might want it for aesthetic purposes which is also fine.

    2300 Mhz is a pretty crazy number..... I doubt 95% of cards are capable of hitting that even with watercooling.
