The 3080 20GB will need a higher power target to keep performance identical to the 10GB. Those memory chips need quite a bit of power.
The 3070 16GB won't necessarily have additional chips because unlike GDDR6X, GDDR6 is also available in 16Gb packages.
Externally and internally. Igor somehow has access to Nvidia engineering software which can display G6X temperatures.
EVGA FTW series seem to get uglier with each generation after the 1080 (not 1080Ti). I hope that at least the backplate looks nice because I will slap a waterblock on it anyway.
The other cooler variants on EVGA's website look a lot less childish.
The NAND might in fact last longer because at higher temperatures electrons can move more freely which in turn puts less wear on the cells. The controller (assuming proper heat management) will only throttle earlier without a heatsink. Although that only happens under sustained writes. Keep in...
I am currently using 2.5G on both board and modem/router because 1G would bottleneck my 1G internet connection which actually is 1.1G. There is also some overhead meaning that 1G ethernet caps out at around 950-970M.
Having 2.5G on a board doesn't hurt since as far as I know, the cost for the...
