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

    Just to give my experience, after playing minecraft RTX on my new 3070 today. In just one demo, the Neon something, I can see the GPU RAM use was > 8 GB (so capped there), and in the game some texture isn't fully rendered (some transparent blocks). Though this is an edge case, but obviously in...

    High LatencyMon Reporting

    One last solution maybe to reinstall windows, and before so you could just backup the current system (or if you can, use another drive) so you can restore it if it didn't help.

    Router question

    I might be naive, but I don't really think a router will be a factor in performance even for intense FPS games like CS:GO. Any modern gigabit routers should work just well. One probably simple way to check is to see the ping with and without the router, that should tell you how much the...

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

    Given the current numbers, 10 GB RAM isn't exactly a limit for most games. Plus, with AMD actually being able to catch up with Big Navi (less Ray-tracing), a more heated-up competition should be ahead; I wouldn't expect 3080 to age as well as 1080Ti even if it had more RAM. I would have gotten...

    ASUS Lists RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB, RTX 3060 12 GB Graphics Cards

    Exactly and many simply didn't know. In Japan, even on the Nvidia's website, the listed price for 3080 before tax is 968 USD. https://www.nvidia.com/ja-jp/geforce/graphics-cards/30-series/?nvid=nv-int-csfg-67760#cid=_nv-int-csfg_ja-jp

    Steam Unveils the Best of 2020 Game Awards

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

    Do they really have to put an Nvidia logo on the box? Sounds like they are asking for troubles from the shipment.

    ASUS Lists RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB, RTX 3060 12 GB Graphics Cards

    Not sure if mining is the culprit this time, my feeling is with the virus people have more money from not traveling, plus now more time to actually game. Besides the potential influence on logistics, my guess is these are the two factors why demand is way over supply. There are multiple...

    ASUS Intros RT-AX68U Wi-Fi 6 Router

    Maybe I haven't read enough, but from tests on smallnetbuilder and others, I still haven't seen where AX actually performs better than AC by a significant margin. Guess I will go for AC at the moment, might wait till the release of 6 GHz devices before the next major upgrade.

    GELID Announces Iceberry Cooling+Case Kit for Raspberry Pi 4

    Sigh, I thought I was speaking with an adult. Albeit I am glad you finally learnt what I said. It's as simple as I am to choose between two heatsinks, I guess I won't choose one with a dent, and I thought that was obvious to everybody which is my fault. You are among those I see who, as fans...

    The guy who kept telling me I missed something, but never bother to point it out? Not sure how it makes you feel better. I guess we are speaking a different language. We can continue when you tune in.

    This case. Flirc Raspberry Pi 4 Case (Silver) It was a otherwise good case with an indent at the point of contact with the chip. I bought it and returned it immediately, and this was not the only case having this issue. Even if it can work, why would anyone put a dent at the critical...

    PSA: Corsair LPX and AMD

    Just want to add, this set of 16GB*2 F4-3600C16D-32GVKC work at XMP at 3600 C16 for me with B550 and 3600X. (tested with 8+8 hrs Karhu RAM test and Prime 95 blend)

    PSA: Corsair LPX and AMD

    That's interesting, what I followed in the past was the die used, and I got either Samsung B-die and Micron E-die, both did pretty well in general (I only really use low freq like 3200 MHz so it might not matter).

    New PC build - PSU has died 2x in 2 weeks

    I cannot tell and I was not aware of bad grounding killing a PC myself, but it is not impossible. I am no expert, though, it seems there are some simple testing tools you could use to see if the socket works at least as expected, e.g. Klein Tools RT210 Outlet Tester, Receptacle Tester for GFCI /...

    New PC build - PSU has died 2x in 2 weeks

    I did have one experience where I had the CPU heatsink accidentally shorting the 12V power In to the GPU. What happened was turning on the PC caused some buzz in the PSU and it stopped after a bit. While in your case it did turn on and lasted a couple days, there is still a small chance...
