    Suika got a reaction from Awesome84 in What year was your mobile phone released? [Poll]   
    2020 and I still considered buying a Galaxy Fold 2 cuz why the hell not

    Suika got a reaction from David1521 in What's the difference between Asus x570 Hero and Asus x570 Dark Hero?   
    For an extra $40 over the Hero (WiFi), you get an improved VRM design, a removed chipset fan, and an all black aesthetic. Honestly, I'm getting one over the Strix simply for the aesthetic and fanless chipset (the extra USB ports too but I was fine with the Strix tbh).
     
    As far as availability, I haven't seen anything solid. The only information I've seen was from an ASUS rep on reddit, stating availability towards the later part of the 1st week in November or some time during the 2nd week.

    Suika got a reaction from illegalwater in Nvidia Delays 3070 to the 29th   
    Steve from Gamers Nexus cited board partners as saying that even a month of delay for the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 would not improve the availability issues that we're seeing today, so I'm curious if this short delay will actually improve anything. I doubt it, I'm more inclined to believe that this shift in launch is a cheap way of taking news coverage away from AMD, as media will likely cover the RTX 3070 on the 28th instead of AMD's RDNA2 announcement.
     
    This delay may also push consumers towards the already scarcely available RTX 3080. We've already seen 3080 buyers shift up to a 3090 so it's very easily to believe NVIDIA hopes for a bit of the same. This is far more speculative than the former given that even 3080 buyers can't buy a 3080, so I can't imagine NVIDIA actually believes they can capitalize on the delay outside of taking media away from AMD.

    Suika reacted to MageTank in Three times the charm - New AMD CPU announcement + big Navi Teaser   
    I'd wager it'd still be pretty significant as it impacts everything tied to the uncore (PCIe subdomain, SATA controllers, USB controllers, etc) not just your memory controller, but I could also be wrong as well. Zen 3 is technically a very different design from its predecessors so until I get my sample, I won't really know. 
     
    Thanks for the heads up, I'll have to give it a watch as I trust Steve's sources given his track record.

    Suika got a reaction from RollinLower in Running 011 Dynamic XL without side panel, case fan setup?   
    If you have to run without a side panel, the only places you could put fans that'd make sense are the top and bottom panels. I'd assume side mounted fans wouldn't do anything because they'd just blow air back into the room without hitting any components.

    Suika got a reaction from Jito463 in rtx 3080 crashing possibly due to capacitor choice   
    Oh, see, I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum and I firmly believe a majority of this is NVIDIA's fault.
     
    1) All board partner designs have to be approved by NVIDIA, so while Zotac, EVGA, or Palit could submit a shit design, if it gets through, then surely NVIDIA thought it was fine.
    2) NVIDIA gave board partners very little time to test boards.
    3) The time board partners did have to test boards, the majority of it was without drivers to actually run games or actual loads on, so partners could have been binning improper chips too.
    4) Not making the reference design a bit more strict, like a 1+5 config should have been the bare minimum with 2+4 being recommended. ASUS just went overkill by the looks of it.
     
    Some partners managed to do better than others but it definitely sounds like NVIDIA holds most of the fault, board partners just won't admit it because they don't want NVIDIA to wack them in the face with their massive dingly.

    Long story short, Der8aur replaced two 'POSCAPs' with MLCC arrays and managed to fix the crashing issue. I still suspect that we're still going to see GPUs binned too high and crashing anyway, but that's a different story as a result of NVIDIA rushing out a product/keeping their board partners in the dark to prevent all the leaks that happened anyway.

    Suika got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Proof 3080 10 GB not Enough VRAM in a few Weeks - Irony, RTX 3090 is Cheaper over RTX 3080 for 4k Ultra Until RTX 4### Series   
    You buy from this price segment because it's the highest end product on the market for a fairly reasonable price, not because it's made of fairy dust that'll grant your any wish. What you're arguing the RTX 3080 should be doesn't exist and has never existed on the market, and this is coming from somebody who's owned a GTX 780, GTX 980 Ti, and GTX 1080 Ti.
     
    Also loving the argument that you always have to buy a top tier card, regardless of how financially practical and wasteful it is. I feel like the majority of consumers buying the RTX 3080 today don't plan on upgrading for a couple years at best, and don't care about the rumored 20GB Super upgrades.

    Suika got a reaction from Valentyn in rtx 3080 crashing possibly due to capacitor choice   
    The whole POSCAP thing sounds more like an industry wide mislabeling rather than a couple tech outlets getting capacitors confused, so it seems like a better comparison is people who refer to 1440p as 2K. They're blatantly wrong but at this point it's kind of pedantic to complain about it.
