    ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Gaming OC

    Thanks for commenting. Yeah, apparently BIOS shows it's exactly what you said, but curiously I've never seen power draw go anywhere near 375W. Could it be that "Board Power Draw" sensor is reporting about less 30W than what it actually is pulling? Here's the typical scenario. Hitting max ~345W...

    ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Gaming OC

    Has anyone figured out how to unlock the 375W board power limit on ASUS TUF 3080 OC? I can't see any higher values than 110% which translates to ~345W max board power. Did TPU use some custom bios in their review? I'm on performance bios and I even updated to the latest one, but I'm stills...

    Used NVCleanInstall and GeForce Experience doesn't work

    Same problem here. Simply selecting "Geforce Experience" seems to end up missing components, even when prompted and select "Yes" to install needed components.

    Samsung, Micron, and Hynix Accused of DRAM Price Fixing

    I don't care about the money part, but I'll be happy if the groups or individuals behind this cartel get jail time. The next CEOs might think twice before turning to crime, if the previous decision makers are in jail.

    PowerColor PCS+ 390 Experience

    I have 0 coil whine with my Powercolor R9 390 PCS+. In some coil whine cases you can get the card replaced. Doesn't hurt to try. Stock fan curve seems overly aggressive and I've made a custom fan curve that keeps temps below 75 Celsius degrees in full load and fan speed around 50-60%. Fan turns...

    Intel Skylake De-lidded, Reveals Tiny Die

    E series CPU's have much higher TDP and also X-series motherboard VRM's run very hot. You have to decide if you want to spend more money on energy bills (and warm up your room). I have 3930k 6-core CPU and tbh. it's not worth it unless you are constantly rendering videos or 3D.

    AMD E-450 Driver Help

    I got DXVA2 working in Win10 (E2-1800, Zacate) by installing the 15.6 beta drivers. 15.7 and 15.7.1 wouldn't install. Also previous Windows 10 insider drivers (DX12 supported) were fine, but I'm not sure which driver version it was. 15.6 Beta: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=400229...

    AMD E-450 Driver Help

    I've got the same issue on E2-1800 APU on Windows 10. Catalyst 15.7.1 display driver fails to install. I have reported this to AMD. What makes matters worse is that current W10 drivers (apparently since 15.7) have broken DXVA2 on AMD APU's, which prevents us from using it as a HTPC. At this...

    AMD Radeon HD 7990 6 GB

    Thanks for the review. I own Sapphire 7970 (reference) with absolutely unbearable coil whine and the problem never magically went away. Also another Gigabyte 7970 Windforce x3 had similar problem. My latest HIS 7970 IceQ2 cards don't have this problem though. Seems to me that mostly the...

    Poll: What caused your flashed 6950 permanent damage?

    Hardware failures happen even without unlocking etc. You should have added an option for "No malfunctions" so we see the failure quantities in perspective. And I've got a feeling that some of these "failures" are due to user not reading instructions carefully, not hardware :)

    Recommended AA/AF settings for HD6950?

    Supersampling provides the best IQ by far, but you can't go much higher than 4X SSAA while maintaining good FPS on a single 6950. CFX setup would allow u to do 8X SSAA in pretty much any game.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Perhaps you had MSI Afterburner on when u tried the pair of flashed cards and forgot to disable ULPS in Windows registry? Every time u reinstall drivers it gets reactivated.

    When will 2nd batch of 6950 be released?

    Even without unlocking you can overclock the 6950 to be way faster than stock 6970.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    SC2 CFX seems to be broken on Caymans so u're only getting single card performance. At least for me there was no fps difference with other card disabled. Also Fallout New Vegas, TERA-Online have crappy/nonworking CFX :| I hope the drivers improve in following months..
