    NVIDIA GeForce 456.38 WHQL Released: Ampere Support, SLI Finally Dead

    Not very good at reading I see. Try again: "Existing games". Not much to do with "previous GPU generations". But whatever, let's call it a misunderstanding. The other thing I am not even going to comment on, too much impotency in one sentence.

    NVIDIA GeForce 456.38 WHQL Released: Ampere Support, SLI Finally Dead

    Well obviously for Ampere GPUs, this is what this article is about, why would anyone even think I am talking about previous series...

    NVIDIA GeForce 456.38 WHQL Released: Ampere Support, SLI Finally Dead

    It clearly says all implicit SLI is disabled, cannot see your problem here?

    NVIDIA GeForce 456.38 WHQL Released: Ampere Support, SLI Finally Dead

    I don't get it. I understand that SLI is not going to be supported in future games, nobody expects that at this point, but to disable all support for existing ones?

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition

    On ambient you are not getting past 16-17% faster than stock FE, and thats with 380W bios flashed (so 150% PL vs stock FE) and a custom LC, unless you want to run at 60 dB. So realistically on average setup you are not getting even half way to 3080 FE. And Ampere's OC potential is still unknown...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Unboxing & Preview

    Very beautiful. AIBs really disappointed this time around, the designs are ultra cheap compared to this.

    NVIDIA Reserves NVLink Support For The RTX 3090

    This is the "GTX 980 makes no sense, you can overclock GTX 970" kind of talk, talking about how way cheaper heavily overclocked and tuned GPU is going to get close to more expensive stock thermal and power throttling one. It makes no real sense and assumes that you will get Maxwell-like 20%+...

    NVIDIA Reserves NVLink Support For The RTX 3090

    As a big SLI fan I find it a bit disappointing, 2x RTX 3080 would have been perfect this gen, and for the price of single 3090, but guess no cheaping out this time. But this isn't that much of a big deal, SLI was high-end enthusiast thing for years anyway, if you get it now then it is in 99% for...

    NVIDIA Announces GeForce Ampere RTX 3000 Series Graphics Cards: Over 10000 CUDA Cores

    Performance Slide of RTX 3090 Ampere Leaks, 100% RTX Performance Gain Over Turing

    I actually found the comment section there to be increasingly funny over time. It used to really annoy me when I was new to all of this and taking it seriously, but now it just feels so stupid that it is no longer triggering and simply comical. It just doesn't seem serious. I'd much rather be...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 and 3080 Specifications Leaked

    So it is basically confirmed that 3080 will be at least 20% faster than 2080 Ti if it has the same amount of CUDA cores but on a new architecture, there is no way for it to deliver less considering the spec. 3090 should be at least 50%. This should be like bare minimum conservative expectation...

    NVIDIA Shares Details About Ampere Founders Edition Cooling & Power Design - 12-pin Confirmed

    Your 2x8-pin cable connects to the PSU with one 8-pin connector, not two. If 12-pin cable uses two then it should be able to pull 600W, at least in theory. But if that's not the case then what is all the power draw crying about if the card won't be able to possibly pull more than your regular...

    Sony Launches PlayStation 5 Pre-Order Registration Site

    NVIDIA Shares Details About Ampere Founders Edition Cooling & Power Design - 12-pin Confirmed

    The two 8-pin connections of 12-pin cable go into the PSU, this is different than 150W 8-pin you plug into the GPU. These are the slots that normally power your 2x8-pin cable, rated up to 300W. So theoretically 12-pin is up to 600W. This doesn't necessarily need to be a hint at anything about...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator Expected to Stimulate Billions in PC Hardware Sales

    For now add DX12 and proper multi threading because so far the game runs like 2005 single threaded MMO.

    Picture Proof of NVIDIA 12-pin Power Connector: Seasonic Ships Modular Adapters

    60% is not that unreasonable considering that Ampere succeeds the generation that didn't make big leaps in raw performance and didn't have node shrink or much better memory. Ampere gets massive upgrades all around, if it doesn't bring massive gains then nothing will anymore.

    Picture Proof of NVIDIA 12-pin Power Connector: Seasonic Ships Modular Adapters

    Cannot see any problem here. This connector is almost as small as single 8-pin. If you can get a full new cable for a modular PSU and not an adapter then this is an upgrade all around. Well at least you admit that you are complaining because you are old and tired, thats respectable :P It would...

    The Curious Case of the 12-pin Power Connector: It's Real and Coming with NVIDIA Ampere GPUs

    This is entirely relative. There is a difference between pointlessly drawing way more power for the same performance and pushing the limits of performance, and we are talking the latter here. To do as badly as AMD did back in the days you refer to, they would have to release a new 300W+ card...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti Rumored Specifications Appear

    These leaks are just so useless... They just assume the same die naming scheme as Turing and proportional spec upgrade to what Turing had over Pascal. You could make this "leak" the day Turing launched...

    NVIDIA Underestimated AMD's Efficiency Gains from Tapping into TSMC 7nm: Report

    Why are you talking like if undervolting was Navi exclusive feature though? You can undervolt any GPU. There is nothing "apples to apples" as you say in undervolting one GPU and leaving the others stock. Undervolt all. Turing isn't any better binned than Navi and also runs on way too high...

    World of Warcraft Set to Receive Ray Tracing Support with Shadowlands Alpha

    The question is whether it is bigger than the overhead that regular reflections have in those games. We are talking some really old implementations that can even cut the performance in half depending on the area. Did anyone even make practical CPU tests for ray tracing? System requirements is...
