  1. No the 3080 Ti will make the 3080 harder to get. Before if a die was not good enough to be a 3090 it would have to be cut down to a 3080. Now at least some of the ones that did make cut for 3090s will make it for 3080 Ti that would have been a 3080. Also if the shortage is for other components, like substrates or packaging components that would reduce the supply of 3080s as well.
  2. There is a speed standard on USB-C connectors it just happens to be USB-2.0 The reason you have different speeds on USB-C cables is because it is just a connector standard.Think USB-A the 'normal' connector that can supply USB 1.0, USB-1.1, USB-2.0, USB-3.0, USB-3.1 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB
  3. While I do not do mining I do folding at home which I would expect would be quite similar to mining. My folding cards have a way easier life than my gaming card. They do almost no thermal cycles and have their power limit set lower to be at the peak of the flops per watt curve so they run cooler. Versus my gaming card which has the power limit set to 130% and does tones of thermal cycles and runs hotter. Thermal cycles is what typically kills very large die GPUs. There is a lot of stress caused by the different thermal expansion rates of the die, substrate and PCB when warming up and cooling d
  4. Do you have any data for gaming not web browsing? I think most of us in this thread would agree that a discrete gpu is not necessary for web browsing. Just using my personal experience, while I do lots of web browsing on my phone, I do zero gaming. https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/Steam-Hardware-Software-Survey-Welcome-to-Steam Based on more gaming oriented data there are 21 gpu models with combined share of 58% before the first apu/igpu appears on the list. The share of people who use steam who have a discrete gpu, is way higher than that but I can't be bothere
  5. While only somewhat related to this topic, when talking about the smallest details someone can see eveyone forgets about Vernier acuity (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vernier_acuity) "misalignment of borders can be detected with a precision up to 10 times better than visual acuity" https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperacuity_(scientific_term) I can easily read a vernier caliper which has 0.001 inch (39.7 microns) resolution at about 40 cm. So a screen like my phone at this same distance, this is about how far I am from the screen as I write this, would need to be at least 1
  6. Would you consider PhysX a gimmick? I do. There are about 40 games that supported it versus the 20 or so the support DLSS. Unless you consider PhysX not a gimmick there is now way DLSS is.
  7. It is a TEC that they are using in that video. This one https://www.ekwb.com/custom-loop/quantumx-delta-tec-sub-ambient-cooling/
  8. I have this exact kit. It is not crap, but it is also not B-die hence the lower price. 3600 16 16 16 36 has to be B-die where the looser bin for this kit 16 19 19 39 can be several different memory types. So without knowiing exactly which memory IC you kit has it varies depending on when the module was produced, the OC potential will vary. My kit with Hynix CJR will do 3733 16 19 19 36 (That is is high as my IF will go) Having said that what is your Vsoc, VDDC IOD, and VDDR?
  9. It is because of rank interleaving. While one rank is busy the other can still be accessed.
  10. AMD already does this on their server platform. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Oe_hwJ7hl7A
  11. I am not sure why everyone makes such a big deal about chipset fans. In my case I have never seen the fan on. I guess it might be more of an issue in low airflow cases.
  12. I really did not want to reply as any argument would not change your mind, but in a discussion about how much to charge for a product for it features, you know damn well I was not taking about price of it but the features.
  13. Here is one question, would you sell something better in every way than your competition for less? AMD had to price their products less than Intel otherwise no one would buy them as they were inferior in at least one way. Now that they are not they do not have to price them lower. Intel has already proven people will pay those prices for that performance. As consumer I would always like lower prices, but understand that companies will only price something as low as they have to. If the supply is decent and they are sold out then we know it was not too high.
