    We're Changing How we Handle Pricing in Graphics Card Reviews

    This new quoting is a PITA to pick things out........ or I suck at it... 'thumbsdown'. :p This is the best post I've seen supporting it, but still not convinced. Off the top, I don't buy the deep state bait and switch argument. These prices are market condition driven and there is always some...

    We're Changing How we Handle Pricing in Graphics Card Reviews

    Or... to keep it easy, you just state in the review... price to performance ratio based on MSRP (YMMV due to several reasons). Hell, if he wants to play in the minutia and empower readers, maybe link the equation for the Price to performance charts so users can plug in the MSRP and see if it...

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

    No... it does not. Please take the time to read some of W1z's game reviews. So far, not ONE has used 10GB (one is very close). The 3080 doesn't struggle today, because of vRAM limitations, on any title running canned ultra settings at 4K UHD. Outside of the ONE title that has 9.8GB allocated...

    We're Changing How we Handle Pricing in Graphics Card Reviews

    I don't. Not at all. I expect to see the MSRP and a link to the product. I don't expect a five month old review to tell me anything accurate about pricing. Ambiguiity is built into the damn name... Manufacturers SUGGESTED Retail Price. Yep... and if they look at an old review expecting accurate...

    We're Changing How we Handle Pricing in Graphics Card Reviews

    I made it 11 days.... lol... You should list both MSRP and current pricing in all reviews in your charts (on launch, it's only MSRP, but subsequent reviews with that card should list MSRP and actual). No need to play reindeer games with pricing. You're not going to be able to please everyone...

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

    Apologies you feel this way. I do get frustrated at your (what feels like a) consistent lack of supporting information without being prodded. Maybe it shows even when I ask nicely (not antagonizing, just being honest with you). :) So...the point of 314 is this...... ... to which the charts he...

    Can you be more specific? What facts is he twisting? He posted up charts that supports what he is saying, no? What are you contesting, exactly? Be clear and please support YOUR assertion as well so we're able to figure this out for ourselves. :) Apologies if I'm being particularly dense here.

    Image posting requirements for responses in WTB threads...

    Gotcha. This is the first time I ran across it in wtb since I've been here.. but realize now (see edit) it appears to be more than just that.

    Image posting requirements for responses in WTB threads...

    But it seems it would have been allowed if there was an image? That and the other OT bantor is still there (oops, my bad some of that, lol, I forget it's FS)...warning incoming... :p I'm just asking to clarify the rules for people responding in WTB threads. Is an image required in public or PM...

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

    Really. SA is not an accurate depiction of availability in the global market. In more places than not, AMD CPUs are also hard to come by. https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=ryzen+5000 ONE model is available at newegg, for example.

    GPU dies, not full GPUs with heatsinks. Samsung doesn't make full GPUs. .......if this was true.

    ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-E Gaming

    Random thread for this post/question... :p Not sure what the new boards will have. Likely something updated if it's that big a problem. The boards I have these are all still working last I checked. :)

    Image posting requirements for responses in WTB threads...

    Came across a WTB thread where staff deleted someone's offer to the OP because they did not post images of the product. The staffer sourced the FS/WTB rules as support highlighting the reasons. If you start a FS thread, you need an image, that much is clear. My concern is that the rules don't...

    Asrock 570 pro p4 cpu/dram red led issue

    That's what people have said, yes.... put the 3900 back in there, update the bios to the latest non beta BIOS. When it's done, drop the new chip in. What bios version was on there? Go to the MFG website for that board and look up the CPU compatibility list... it shows you which BIOS supports...

    lol... whenever. I already have a few posts bookmarked so we can look at this again in a 'year'... I'm surprised that people can make statements like this (so absolute) when there is little evidence pointing in that direction. Such as? Have the conversation instead of leaving vague dismissal...

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

    help me out...I don't have 41 mins to sit through that video...what games and settings are they 'averaging' 9.3 GB? This thread is about the 10GB 3080.. I made a passing mention of the 3070... what titles show over 8Gb of use at 1440p (nothing at TPU, note)? Come on now... the info was laid out...

    Intel Core i7-11700K "Rocket Lake" CPU Outperforms AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in Single-Core Tests

    I started reading this thread and all I saw were people taking jabs at Intel... ridiculous. This forum man... I swear........ :( Anyway, who knows how true this is... but it's a good sign so far. Wondering what the power draw will be (more than AMD I'd guess), but if IPC is back up there along...

    Arctic LF II 240 a huge disappointment so far

    Is 100F bad? What is that in Celsius? Everything in the computer world is in Celsius... yes, I'm American and it's assbackwards to me too, but that's the common way it's done. That is how both AMD and Intel spec their processors. List temps in C to make it easier for everyone else. :) Anyway...

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

    You're not seeing that from my link (and the list I made from all of the games I linked). Where are you seeing 9.3 GB? Compromises? Naa... sorry. I doubt that. There isn't a need, they have headroom.

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

    Right... 10GB+ won't saturate the market for years. If we average those 10 titles (using the highest values I listed, note), vRAM use is just over 7GB at 4K/Ultra. I think we've got some time and headroom. :) Worth noting, I find the 8GB 3070 more troubling than a 10GB 3080. The 3070 is plenty...
