    i_build_nanosuits reacted to Mark Kaine in Power limit explained?   
    In my experience this is good for about 5-10 fps depending on the game.
     
    And low and behold... 
    ROTTR 1440P, mostly max settings, MSAA 
     
    3070 stock:

    +25 core +300 memory 
     

     
    *Whooping* 5 FPS, that is HUGE especially at 1440p. 
     
    I also get the angle that this isn't all that great , but you can get some noticeable gains with overclocking 3070 cards, you'd know that if you followed a couple of tech channels who all already proofed this. (I recommend Tech Jesus for the ice and flowing hair, and jayztwocents for the dremel action 😄) 
     
     
    I was simply curious what's up with the power limit difference on some cards, it's quite curious anyways. 
     
    Do you have a source for this statement? 
     
    Would be good to know either way, but generally lower temps means higher clock speeds and I haven't found anything regarding Ampere GPU boost analysis at all so far...

    i_build_nanosuits got a reaction from Mister Woof in i5-4460 with a GTX 1080   
    That depends on what game we're talking about...some games will perform absolutely fine with that CPU and some won't...

    They perform pretty similarly but I'd go 3080 for DLSS. Ray tracing too if you care about that

    It actually did end up being my cable. I stole my sister dp cable and it’s working great now. So I’m goin to have to order one since I can’t keep hers.

    Yeah...ASRock really dropped the ball this time around with Z490.

     
     
    Better CPU  motherboard and cooler is all you really need, as far as I can see...

    i_build_nanosuits reacted to -rascal- in 10700k... Throttling, but at temps I don't understand.   
    I tried to look for a review that included the ASUS PRIME Z490-A, Gigabyte Z490 Vision G, and Gigabyte Z490 Aorus Elite...but no such luck.
    If you look at the spec of the FETs used for the power stages for the VRM...just the CPU part
    Vision G is 12 phase (12 true phases) using SiC651A FETs, rated at 50A each Aorus Elite is also 12 phase (12 true phases) using the same SiC651A 50A FETs... only ting different is the heatsink and layout of them vs the Vision G. ASUS PRIME Z490-A is 12 phase (6 true phase with doublers) but using NCP302045 FETs, rated at 45A each Hardware Unboxed has a Z490 review with both the Vision G and Aorus Elite.
    The VRMs on the Aorus Elite consistently running a few *C cooler than the Vision G...but not much (2*C ~ 3*C better).
     
    To be honest, either one will be 100% fine when paired with an OC'ed i7-10700K.
     
    FYI, my cheat sheet (there are a couple for AMD AM4 motherboards, Intel Z390 / Z370, etc).

    i_build_nanosuits got a reaction from Bombastinator in 3080's 10GB VRAM: Is it enough?   
    with the next gen consoles just coming out...future mega next gen AAA titles havn't started to hit yet...hard to say.
    As for right now, for VR you want more for supersampling even my 1080ti is maxing out 11GB in a few instances and 3080 is almost twice the performance...so yeah i ain't planing on a 10GB for an upgrade personally...for 1440P games it's enough, but in 2 or 3 years it might come short in a few instances...no big deal.
     
    So i'd say:
    Great for 1440p, not quite engouh for future VR and not enough for future 4K but okay for now. (also VR ok for now in most instances, only high end sims with supersampling you hit max, but no stuttering yet just maybe some slight slowdowns here and there)

    i_build_nanosuits reacted to The_russian in How about a VR subforum?   
    I was a bit surprised there wasn't already a subforum for it, perhaps there just aren't enough posts about VR to justify it's own subform/topic whatever it is called?
     
    Edit: I forgot to say I would also appreciate a subforum for VR/AR, but if there isn't enough support for it that is totally understandable.

    I believe that a VR subforum would make sense. Subforum to the displays forum?

    i_build_nanosuits reacted to Levent in Asus Tuf 3080 from Newegg wasn't sealed. - need advice   
    Just test it out. Check for marks on the PCB, dust build-up etc. I am not that anal when it comes to situations like this one. If card works and has no issues along with a valid warranty I'll use it. I might contact the seller and ask for a coupon or few dollars back but I wouldn't be mad if I didn't get any.

    i_build_nanosuits reacted to SteveGrabowski0 in How long do you think the 2060 is good be good for   
    970 was like the second or third best gpu on the market though back in 2014 whereas 2060 isn't even top 10 right now. I'm still sad my 970 died on me, that freaking card aged beautifully. I'd probably still be running it if I could have.

    so long as you have a graphics card because the FX6300 don't have onboard graphics, and at least 6 GB of RAM you're all set.

    windows 10 will run perfectly fine on that hardware, all the drivers for windows 7 are still compatible with windows 10.
    Newer hardware can have backward compatibility issues, the opposite is rarely the case. Proceed.
     
    You have FX-8350? 6300?
