    We're Changing How we Handle Pricing in Graphics Card Reviews

    This new quoting is a PITA to pick things out........ or I suck at it... 'thumbsdown'. :p This is the best post I've seen supporting it, but still not convinced. Off the top, I don't buy the deep state bait and switch argument. These prices are market condition driven and there is always some...

    We're Changing How we Handle Pricing in Graphics Card Reviews

    Or... to keep it easy, you just state in the review... price to performance ratio based on MSRP (YMMV due to several reasons). Hell, if he wants to play in the minutia and empower readers, maybe link the equation for the Price to performance charts so users can plug in the MSRP and see if it...

    So is the 10 gb vram on rtx 3080 still enough?

    No... it does not. Please take the time to read some of W1z's game reviews. So far, not ONE has used 10GB (one is very close). The 3080 doesn't struggle today, because of vRAM limitations, on any title running canned ultra settings at 4K UHD. Outside of the ONE title that has 9.8GB allocated...

    We're Changing How we Handle Pricing in Graphics Card Reviews

    I don't. Not at all. I expect to see the MSRP and a link to the product. I don't expect a five month old review to tell me anything accurate about pricing. Ambiguiity is built into the damn name... Manufacturers SUGGESTED Retail Price. Yep... and if they look at an old review expecting accurate...

    We're Changing How we Handle Pricing in Graphics Card Reviews

    I made it 11 days.... lol... You should list both MSRP and current pricing in all reviews in your charts (on launch, it's only MSRP, but subsequent reviews with that card should list MSRP and actual). No need to play reindeer games with pricing. You're not going to be able to please everyone...

    So is the 10 gb vram on rtx 3080 still enough?

    Apologies you feel this way. I do get frustrated at your (what feels like a) consistent lack of supporting information without being prodded. Maybe it shows even when I ask nicely (not antagonizing, just being honest with you). :) So...the point of 314 is this...... ... to which the charts he...

    Can you be more specific? What facts is he twisting? He posted up charts that supports what he is saying, no? What are you contesting, exactly? Be clear and please support YOUR assertion as well so we're able to figure this out for ourselves. :) Apologies if I'm being particularly dense here.

    Image posting requirements for responses in WTB threads...

    Gotcha. This is the first time I ran across it in wtb since I've been here.. but realize now (see edit) it appears to be more than just that.

    Image posting requirements for responses in WTB threads...

    But it seems it would have been allowed if there was an image? That and the other OT bantor is still there (oops, my bad some of that, lol, I forget it's FS)...warning incoming... :p I'm just asking to clarify the rules for people responding in WTB threads. Is an image required in public or PM...

    A Christmas Miracle: 500,000 NVIDIA RTX 3080 Cards Found in Lost Shipping Container

    Really. SA is not an accurate depiction of availability in the global market. In more places than not, AMD CPUs are also hard to come by. https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=ryzen+5000 ONE model is available at newegg, for example.

    GPU dies, not full GPUs with heatsinks. Samsung doesn't make full GPUs. .......if this was true.

    ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-E Gaming

    Random thread for this post/question... :p Not sure what the new boards will have. Likely something updated if it's that big a problem. The boards I have these are all still working last I checked. :)
