    Quick Look: VIVIFY Arquus 73Ø & Aceso W10 Cables

    No teardown :(

    RTX 3080 Crash to Desktop Problems Likely Connected to AIB-Designed Capacitor Choice

    How would I know? I don't even have any 30*0 card :D . I've seen enough of 3Dmarks in last 10 years, haha. But to your point, I kept repeating on oc guides and posts, that high clocks do not mean best performance. Like KPE 1080Ti running 50MHz less than competitor card in same benchmark but...

    EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 KINGPIN Achieves 2.58 GHz Core Clock, Breaks World Record in 3D Mark Port Royal

    Facepalm. At least 10 years there are news of NVIDIA cards overclocking to hell with 1069mV voltage. Somehow news writers can't grasp the fact, that software reported voltages are almost never correct when doing overclocking. Just didn't expect this from TPU... :kookoo: 10750 MHz then, or 10.75...

    Let's call all proccessors Core i7's then :D

    POSCAP is registered brand/trademark name for Panasonic's line of capacitors. https://industrial.panasonic.com/ww/products/capacitors/polymer-capacitors/poscap Like "Core i7" for some Intel processors.

    RTX 3080 Crash to Desktop Problems Likely Connected to AIB-Designed Capacitor Choice

    100k oscilloscope or 10 GHz oscilloscope is not required again to do power delivery network analysis of the VGA card. It is required for signal integrity measurements and verification, such as that pretty PAM4 eye diagram everybody saw on marketing presentation slides or for testing PCIe 4.0...

    RTX 3080 Crash to Desktop Problems Likely Connected to AIB-Designed Capacitor Choice

    I still missing how GPU architecture or GPU design matter here? One can assume it's magic oompa-loompa inside chip doing the math, and it would be same either way, as soon as you need (can measure) how many amps and what voltage margins loompa's need to stay happy. That is number one test to be...

    RTX 3080 Crash to Desktop Problems Likely Connected to AIB-Designed Capacitor Choice

    Do tell more :) Though there is no much need for highest precision equipment to be able on capturing bode plot and response of relatively slow DC-DC converter that is used on 3080/3090 GPUs here. One do need decent differential probes, injector or high-speed load and good scope or bode plot...

    RTX 3080 Crash to Desktop Problems Likely Connected to AIB-Designed Capacitor Choice

    Whole article is based on speculations of speculations. First of all, high-current DC-DC PDN (power delivery network) is real challenge, and indeed must use proper decoupling. However it does not mean that use of POSCAP/SPCAP or MLCC is the best in every case. Much more depends on transient...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 "CEO Edition" Rears its Head, Most Likely a Fake

    What is interesting here? Just using twice denser GDDR6X chips, in same clamshell configuration? Same what was done many years now on Quadro line.

    Micron Announces GDDR6X Memory, Powering the World's Fastest Graphics Cards

    No, you won't :) I've tried that on 2080Ti, gpu itself is locked up too.

    Micron Announces GDDR6X Memory, Powering the World's Fastest Graphics Cards

    I guess this may mean, that we will see 48GB Ampere-powered Quadro cards :)

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ampere Bare PCB Pictured

    Layout routing of this board must be real fun :). Placing of big VRM so close to sensitive high-speed traces is SI nightmare :)

    Creative Sound Blaster X3

    No teardown? :(

    SLI with different cards

    Well, got it working, thanks for your help.
