  1. Samsung has a Smart Signage series of displays that are meant for displaying ads in public places for example, those screen usually run 24/7 and are probably best suited for this kind of work. But as mentioned above, I don't think there's a real, measurable difference in reliability over regular monitors.

    Polish retailer cancels 10-month-old RTX 3070 order, offers RTX 3060 in return

     

    Quote

    The editor ordered GeForce RTX 3070 non-LHR model back in November 2020. The Polish retailer X-Kom was taking preorders on items that were not in stock, but ensuring customers that the orders are now queued and will ship as soon as possible. As soon as the manufacturer informed X-Kom about the delay of the shipment, the retailer began offering full refunds. But this would not solve the problem, which is buying a graphics card at the price from November 2020, which was much lower than what we have now. This is where the problem starts.
     

    The editor decided to wait for the card to be in stock, which unfortunately never happened. Over the span of 10 months, the retailer did not secure the shipment of the RTX 3070 non-LHR model. Instead, the retailer reached out to Jan when NVIDIA released its RTX 30 LHR (Lite Hash Rate) series to ask if he wishes to swap to an identical model, except with LHR mining lock enabled. Most customers should agree to this swap because non-LHR series are no longer produced and will likely never be restocked.
     

    The real surprise came when the retailer offered RTX 3060 LHR instead of RTX 3070 LHR. X-kom even explained that this SKU offers ‘exactly the same performance as its predecessor’, which is simply not true. This is an extreme example of a retailer taking advantage of the current GPU pricing situation, by offering a similarly priced model, except 10 months later, when the pricing has skyrocketed.


    Posting it here since it isn't really newsworthy, but I can confirm that this looks to be true and got two real-life examples with this exact store:

    - My friend ordered a 3060Ti Gaming X Trio on launch day per my recommendation to do so, about a month and a half ago he was contacted that they could give him a 3060Ti Gaming Z Trio LHR instead, BUT he needed to pay another $50 to get it. Because of the current market situation and things not looking bright in the near future I told him to suck it up and pay it because he couldn't play most games that he liked with his previous 3GB 1060 at 1440p, but still a f*cking dick move. He doesn't plan to mine cryptocurrencies, but the LHR thing is kind of a downgrade too.

    - I have a 3080 TUF order standing since 17.09.2020 (ordered around 15 minutes after they went on sale), I've been waiting almost a full year (!) now, and I recently got news that I'm 77th in the queue. It needs to be noted, that in March of this year I was 98th and it's hard to believe that they weren't able to source enough cards to fulfill launch-day orders for an entire year.

    Luckily I've got an RX 6900 XT now so I don't really need a 3080, but I'm still curious when and how they're planning to resolve it. Dick moves all around.

      That's something I've heard a lot of stores doing. I think MSI just stopped making those Gaming X Trio cards they had at launch and are now only selling the LHR cards.

      I am willing to bet you're not moving up in the queue because they're fulfilling orders. People are cancelling their preorders.

       

      Offering 3060's to people who preordered 3070's is just insulting though.

      Still - being forced to pay an additional $50 for a product with lower resale value, especially if you've waited for so many months seems insulting as well

  4. This thread is not only wrong, but also entirely pointless. I'm going to lock it, because there's no productive discussion resulting out of it. OP, if you have specific problems please create a thread for those issues so maybe someone will help you resolve them. It's highly unlikely that it's something wrong with AMD CPUs in particular.
  5. It will surely work, it may just work in the PCIE 3.0 x8 mode instead of x16. No difference whatsoever for a GTX 1650. * Thread moved to CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory *
  6. The memory should be stable at XMP. RMA it if it causes errors during testing. I'm running the same 3000MHZ Dominator Platinum 4x8 kit that's overclocked to 3800MHz with 1900FCLK with a 5800X and it works great.
  7. 850W is perfectly fine. I've got a 5800X and a 6900XT myself and I run it with a quality 850W Corsair PSU and still have a lot of headroom. What matters more is quality, what other 850W or above PSUs are available in your area?
  8. Yeah, that makes sense. In that case I'd recommend you look at the 10700K and save some money to get a better GPU - 11700K brings nothing in terms of CPU performance
  9. Both of those i7s that you mentioned have integrated graphics and both of them are useless for gaming. If they're just gaming, they don't need a 11700K - 10700KF may be good value in your area, otherwise I'd go down to a Ryzen 5 5600X or an i5-11400F. Keep in mind that the three CPUs I've recommended do not have iGPUs, so they require a dedicated graphics card.
  10. Of course, but facts are facts and need to be taken into consideration. I've bashed Nvidia for doing what they did especially to Kepler in terms of drivers and I'm honestly stunned that AMD dropped support for the R9 Fury series this soon - I understand the technical reasoning, but I don't think that's gonna cut it. I mentioned Nvidia, because original author of the comment made it sound like they were any different, which they aren't
  11. I've read your statements about support and while I agree that AMD dropping Fiji support is ridiculous, you seem to be forgetting about what Nvidia does too. How quickly they stop optimizing for older generations, Kepler was destroyed by lack of optimizations compared to AMD cards of the same age for years, and I didn't see you complain. Maxwell is dead right now as well, so what if you get a driver update if no game optimizations are added and no features are added? Most people seem to not update Nvidia's drivers for such cards because it seems pointless anyway. Pascal stopped getting an
  12. In terms of ease of integration, I found this quote on TweakTown:
  13. I meant that if you run 1080p native and use the FSR Performance setting, your what AMD calls "input resolution" is so low that it completely breaks visuals at some point, so for best results I would probably recommend not going below "Quality" setting at 1080p. For instance, you can see in Hardware Unboxed review video (here) how using FSR Performance mode at 1080p in Godfall reduced the quality significantly beyond what happens at 4K This may be exactly why DLSS is restricted not to run at all with certain GPU + resolution configurations
  14. I agree with your conclusion - and I think we should look at this technology as something to be used in specific cases, like 4K gaming and being in need of more performance, trying to offset some of the ray tracing associated performance hit or having a lower-end part like a Ryzen APU or GTX 10-series card. Though I do not recommend using FSR at lower resolutions. Apparently FSR actually works on even older hardware, it's just validated only so far back. Its easy implementation in games is a large plus too, the problem is that the launch game support is pretty laughable right now so it's
  15. Yeah, exactly. Lower-end hardware will benefit much more from FSR. My RX 560X laptop would love that. This also makes me question the utility of Nvidia's Tensor Cores in RTX GPUs.
