    Fury X burned SMD capacitor replacement

    Take it to a local eletronic repair shop and have them replace the cap. Also a lot of times the manufacture can repair the card for you even if it is second hard. Just expect to pay some money though.

    This is more for APU optimization.

    EVGA Says Goodbye to Driver DVDs

    Still have and love my BD-ROM. All my new builds still have optical drive.

    TomsHardware--GTX 1180 Expected in July

    Nvidia had some competetion back then. Now they have no real competetion at all. Vega was a major flop and Polaris is no longer competitive. It would really surprise me if Nvidia decide to make another big leap in terms of GPU performance.

    TomsHardware--GTX 1180 Expected in July

    Probably not gonna happen. RTG offers little competetion. I would be surprised if 1180 matches 1080Ti performance. 1170 would probably just be at 1080 level. Only advantage of 1170 over 1080Ti would be hardware accelerated ray tracing tech IMO

    TomsHardware--GTX 1180 Expected in July

    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-turing-faq,37067.html 1080Ti still is some of the best choice until 1180Ti comes out.

    Fudzilla: AMD Navi is no high end GPU

    The departure of Raja is probably one of the best things happened to RTG in a long time. Now they at least will be lead by a competent leader Dr. Su. RTG ain’t gonna die. They may just focus on consoles and industry solutions.

    NVIDIA Puts the GeForce GTX 1060 Under the Knife Once Again

    So eventually we will be seeing 1080 dies in 1030.

    NVIDIA Puts the GeForce GTX 1060 Under the Knife Once Again

    Recycle partially faulty 1070 dies. Bloody brilliant. Also with this news it is safe to predict there won't be a 1160 any time soon. There is basically no competition

    Fudzilla: AMD Navi is no high end GPU

    MCM in theory sounds nice, just like many of RTG's promises that were supposed to "revolutionize gaming" while in end never picks up any steam. IMO RTG will probably just stay in the mid~low end performance range in the next 4~5 years. They bet a lot on the ditection of GPU accelerated...

    The graphics card with the hottest looks!

    So hot girls on hot GPUs counts double the hotness I guess?
