    KaitouX reacted to HairlessMonkeyBoy in Replaced thermal paste on GPU - now I get random restarts   
    On a GPU you need to be liberal with the paste, not conservative. It is imperative that the entire surface of the die is covered.
     
    Also ensure that you did not remove or move-out-of-place any of the thermal pads that keep your memory ICs and VRMs cool.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Would the 3060 really compare to the 2080 ti?   
    The 970(lower launch price than the 2060) did match the 780Ti, the 1070($30 more than the 2060 at launch) beat the 980 Ti. Using only Turing as comparison point would imply that we never had more than ~15% improvements at the same price. But I don't think it will be faster than the 2080Ti, probably around the 2080 is a more realistic ~35% performance increase over the 2060, the issue is if the price is going to stay the same/drop, or if they are going to increase it again.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Mateyyy in PCIE gen 4 vs intel   
    The 3800XT isn't worth it, if you decide to go AMD the 3700X or 3900X are better options.

    KaitouX got a reaction from naturallyaspirated6 in Micron confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 gets 21Gbps GDDR6X memory   
    This is probably correct, it wouldn't make much sense for Micron to try to find GPUs with the exact memory configuration when the objective is to give a example on where that memory was/can be used, also because probably there isn't always a GPU that maxes out the possible memory configuration in every way.

    KaitouX reacted to porina in Micron confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 gets 21Gbps GDDR6X memory   
    I still have a copy of the document locally and had another look. Actually in that column both it lists both Titan RTX and RX5700 XT as 12GB. How can this be? 
     
    Thinking more, where it names the product, it says "Application Type (Example)". And for the VRAM it says "Frame Buffer of Typical System". On further thought, maybe they are using the product names as an example of products using that technology, and a typical configuration, but not necessarily the actual configuration. If so, this would explain the apparent error that would otherwise be present, and also brings some life back into the higher VRAM rumours still floating around.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in NVIDIA teases August 31st announcement (likely Ampere)   
    I hope this time around they don't do something like "Our new GPUs are 40% faster than last generation, but 70% more expensive", I really want a decent GPU for 4K for around 300€, so I hope that the 3060 or whatever it is called will be slightly cheaper than the 2060 at launch, while being at least 30% faster and hopefully not using more than 150W. That shouldn't be impossible as they've done it with the 900 series, but if they repeat the 900 series I hope that they won't repeat the 3,5GB memory in some similar way.

    KaitouX got a reaction from SpaceGhostC2C in Intel to unveil Xe-HPG gaming architecture with hardware ray-tracing   
    I think the plan is to use (probably) TSMC for the GPUs:
    So their 10nm and 7nm manufacturing issues aren't going to apply, even if other issues Intel might have internally could still apply.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Fasauceome in Kinda lost on wattage/recommended PSUs from PSU list.   
    I would just use the G2 until the warranty ends. 750W is more than enough, the G2 is a good PSU and the PSUs you mentioned would be downgrades from it.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Can an rx 5700 xt handle 4K?   
    It isn't a DLSS equivalent, AMD have no equivalent currently.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Can an rx 5700 xt handle 4K?   
    Depends on the game, but your average game should be able to reach 60FPS as long you're okay with medium or high settings, maybe with the resolution set to something like 1800p or lower in heavier games. AMD have no DLSS equivalent, the initial DLSS was just worse than a simple upscale with AMD sharpening filter, all you need to do is to create a custom resolution at 1800p or whatever you want(1440P probably doesn't need it) and choose it in the game, the GPU/TV will do the upscale depending on your settings to fit in the screen, if you want to use the sharpening filter, just look for it in the driver settings.
    From TPU, games are probably in the highest settings(without Hairworks, RTX and similar):

    KaitouX got a reaction from soldier_ph in [Updated] Ryzen 4800H Supply Constraints at XMG Schenker, possibly extending industry wide   
    It's kinda weird that they would add this in the post considering it is unrelated to the topic and it's mostly things that have no proof of being true/important, it looks extremely unprofessional to have a rant in a notice about supply issues in my opinion. The first point while true at the high-end on Desktop, there seems to be no difference when it comes to notebooks, the lower performance of the GPUs compared to desktop and the lower performance of Intel CPUs seems to remove any visible difference in performance. The second point while it's a fact, there's no proof that it would have any significant impact in most cases, at least in desktops only some extreme cases can cause visible impact in performance. The third I'm not sure about it so no comments there.
    The things after that(left out of the quote) are even more unrelated, being about some issues in Death Stranding when using the Ryzen 3900X which in the linked video is said to be likely something related to the latency or a bug, which likely wouldn't affect Renoir or even some Desktop CPUs. Even if the point is about possible issues with Ryzen CPUs, there's no guarantee that Intel wouldn't have issues in some games because of some random reason and the point about "platform stability" seems to have zero reflection in reality, as there seems to be no issues that are particular to Renoir CPUs in notebooks.
     
    On-topic: I wouldn't be surprised if the ODM underestimated the demand which could have caused the issue to become bigger, but AMD having supply issues is something that will probably be a thing for quite some time.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Mateyyy in Which 1660 super brand?   
    I would avoid the 1660Ti, as the 1660Ti performance is too close to the 1660 Super for it to be worth in my opinion. I would either go for a decent cheap cooler on the 1660 Super to save some money compared to the Strix/Gaming X or get some basic 5600XT/2060.
     
    Also prices are dropping like crazy where I'm located, likely due to the imminent release of the new GPUs, both 1660S and 2060 dropped close to 15% in price in the last week. Might be worth checking for deals that might happen in the next few days/weeks.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in what was the greatest nvidia gen improvements ever?   
    The performance alone doesn't matter for most people, the price does. Even if the 3080 was 50% faster than the 2080Ti, if it costed $3000 most people would ignore it.
    I really hope that if that 3080 20% faster than the 2080Ti is real, it would become also get a price cut and not a price increase, otherwise it will be probably one of the worst big node jumps in recent history for Nvidia.
    Basically, if they repeat Maxwell(x80 ~15% faster than x80Ti but with a price drop) it will be good enough, if they repeat Turing then it will be really bad. Personally I would hope for such 3080 to not cost more than $600, anything more than that would be bad in my opinion.

    KaitouX got a reaction from 5x5 in Intel's 7nm is broken, company announces delay until 2022, 2023   
    Considering how much time AMD needs to get their market and mind share high enough to be able to do that, I don't think AMD will be slowing down the performance or increasing the prices too much. But i do hope Intel gets back to it in the next 3 years or so, it certainly would have some effect on pricing if Intel went completely "quiet" like AMD did with Bulldozer.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Mateyyy in why are there so many ?   
    The 580 is usually the same price as the 1650S while performing basically the same but using twice as much power, the 5500XT 8GB is usually quite a bit more expensive than the 1650S which kinda makes it not that good, particularly when often you can find a 1660 for not much more. The extra memory is nice but not worth the trade-offs in my opinion.
     
    Looking at the site OP posted, the 5500XT 8GB is about the same price as the 1660, so not really worth it, on that site the best options are probably this 1660 for slightly more than 200€: https://www.bestprice.gr/item/2155597418/gainward-geforce-gtx-1660-6gb-ghost.html?qid=3ot4wFmerFb_fc3d0&seq=6&q=gtx+1660&from=cat
    or the 1650 Super for 165€:

    Also the 1660 Super for 220€ is a nice improvement over the 1660, but that might be going too much over the budget.

    KaitouX got a reaction from SavageNeo in why are there so many ?   
    The 1650 is one of the worst modern GPUs available, it should be avoided unless you have some special use case where it makes sense.
    Don't know about your local prices, but in the regions I have seen in general the best options around that price are usually the RX570 close to $120(or local currency equivalent) and the 1650 Super for around $160. Also if the 1650 Super is a option for the same price the 5500XT 4GB makes no sense, unless it is the 8GB model for the same price as the 1650S.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Help: rx 5700 xt model !!!!   
    If you don't care about higher noise, the Asrock Challenger, it is a bad cooler but if noise isn't an issue than you're just saving €50+ as the performance itself is going to be the same. If you care about noise then probably the Sapphire Pulse or Gigabyte Gaming OC when considering the prices on that site.

    By the way, you can see the same thing if you compare the 10700K and 3700X at 4Ghz, the 3700X is going to be faster even if you lock both to the same clocks.
