    I actually will throw it in there to test it on the ryzen 1600 for a laugh

    The Ampere Purchase Thread

    I have no idea whats good and whats not, but its got pretty RGB and the 3x8 pin implies it can take a f*ckload of juice to avoid power limits

    Will RTX 3080 be worth it with PCI-E 3.0?

    If at any point directIO matters hugely for game performance, anyone without a brand spanking new card is fucked. Game devs will not design their games to alienate users.

    Will RTX 3080 be worth it with PCI-E 3.0?

    I really dont see a huge difference between gens there, if you have NVME + directIO, you're gunna see nice load times in supported titles. It's gunna be a long time before that matters, and we saturate 3.0.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 with AMD Ryzen 3900XT vs. Intel Core i9-10900K

    What we needed to know, Intel has roughly a 10% lead (it obviously varies between the different CPUs) but the higher the res, the less it matters.

    3000 Series bios flashing

    With my 1080, i flashed it to an official, slightly higher clocked one (MSI gaming X to gaming Z) and thats about as far as i'd go with high end hardware. Its possible people can flash between various 30 series models as well, but i would not want to be the initial tester of that. Even...

    What would you do?

    I'd inform my neighbour that someone suspicious was snooping around, and then go home and enjoy my new asus rog strix 3090 super ultra black market edition

    NVMe SSD not recognized by the motherboard

    Could you reset the BIOS to optimised defaults and go from there? Obvious user error mistakes can happen too, like installing as MBR on the other system thats not recognised since the new one has CSM disabled

    Uhh, those are Delta T temps - degrees above ambient

    To be clear he means the motherboard in the dishwasher, not the battery.

    NVMe SSD not recognized by the motherboard

    Give us the complete system specs as well as a photo of where the NVME drive is installed - that board has two slots, and you might need to change BIOS settings to enable the second one.

    Is it me, or are they a lot smaller than the 3090FE?

    Using 144hz monitor with a laptop

    depends on your laptops outputs, if it has HDMI or display port you should get above 60Hz

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Unboxing & Preview

    Well, what temp will that air actually be at? If the GPU was at 70C at the core, it'd get cooler as it got away - maybe 50C at the far end of the heatsink then it'd merge with fresh intake air and drop even lower (40c or less) So while hot air into CPU intake sounds bad, i'm definitely...

    Thermal paste on CPU pins

    I've been doing this for decades and still find thermal paste on my fingers, pants, face, and occasionally dog. Isopropyl alcohol will help clean it off, you dont need every micron gone to get things working normally.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Unboxing & Preview

    I made a rule: never upgrade without at least a 50% performance/capacity gain 1080 to 3090 smashes that, and then the 1080 smashes the 980 in the VR system
