Which RTX 3080 GPU to BUY and AVOID! Nvidia, Asus, MSI , Palit, Gigabyte, Zotac, MLCC vs POSCAPS / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

Many AIB RTX 3080 Cards are tending to fail when running under load towards 2000mhz resulting in screen artifacts to game players being kicked to their desktops and even outright system crashes.

Igor Labs first identified the probable cause being AIB's use of cheap capacitor arrays to cut costs thus causing an issue in terms of noise in the power delivery system to the GPU's under boost load at above 1900mhz, the higher the boost the greater the risk of issues i.e. greater instability is when cards boost towards and over 2000mhz, well beyond Nvidia's FE nominal boost clock is at 1710mhz FE which in practice can boost to about 1900mhz in some games, though is less's than that which ABI's boost to hence the crashes being experienced.

WARNING RTX 3080 AIB FLAWED Card's, Cheap Capacitor Arrays Prone to Failing Under Load! / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

There is growing disquiet across the blogosphere surrounding the RTX 3080 AIB cards that goes beyond the frustration of lack of supply and this is because of countless reports that AIB card's are proving problematic for many users that whilst playing GPU intensive games result in issues such as artifacts on screen or that they end up being kicked back to their desktops which suggests an issue when the GPU's are under heavy load i.e. at high boost clock speeds and temperatures.

Watch Before Upgrading / Buying RTX 3000, RDNA2 - CPU vs GPU Bottlenecks / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

Nvidia RTX 3000 mania is likely soon to be joined by AMD RDNA2 mania. However, here's why you may in large parts be wasting your money if considering upgrading from your existing GPU, especially if it is a 2000 series RTX or 5000 series AMD, and may not be a wise choice to spend £700 for a new GPU even if your existing card is as old as a GTX 970. That's if you can get hold of a GPU courtesy of extremem demand and the scalpers.

Anyway watch this video first before paying upwards of £650 for the likes of an RTX 3080.

RTX 3080 Mania, Ebay Scalpers Crazy Prices £62,000 Trollers Insane Bids for a £649 GPU! / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

Forget crypto's the real mania today is not in Bitcoin but RTX 3080 GPU's where the worldwide supply of the cards has been bought up within 5 minutes of Nvidia's launch largely by scalpers who have then gone on to dump the cards on the likes of Ebay with many starting bidding at ridiculous amounts for the £649 card, starting bids of upwards of £3,500!

If you though that no one is going to bid such ridiculous amounts for the privilege of getting hold of Nvidia's latest GPU you would be mistaken as depending your perspective the bidding is truly epic or insane, bids of upwards of £10,000, going all the way to £62,800! How many are real and how many are trolls? Even I was tempted to put in a bid for £90k! NINTY THOUSAND POUNDS FOR A £649 GPU!

Forget AMD RDNA2 and Buy Nvidia RTX 3080 FE GPU's NOW Before Price Hikes! / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

There' s growing speculation on the net that AMD's Big Navi RDNA 2 Next gen RX 6000 series GPU's could pull off a minor miracle by beating Nvidia's just released Samsung 8 nanometre RTX 3000 GPU's in terms of price per performance due to AMD's GPU's being on TSMC's 7 nanometre process which gives a small advantage in terms of thermals towards overcoming Nvidia's huge GPU lead.

Now that AMD know what Nvidia have to offer so can fine tune their RDNA2 GPU's in terms of clock speeds and power consumption to give them that final push towards catching upto Nvidia by bridging the price / performance gap towards ensuring their gaming GPU's come in CHEAPER than Nvidia alternatives namely the 3070 and 3080 i.e. $649 against $699 for the RTX 3080 and so for the 3070 and soon to be joined by the budget 3060TI. Though I doubt most are going to be able to get a 3080 anywhere near $699 for instance Scan computers in the UK is currently selling an RTX 3080 FE for £715 / $930!

AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 4000 Questions Answered on Cores, Prices, Benchmarks and Threadripper Launch / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

We finally have a launch date for Zen 3 ! October the 8th 2020 when all will be revealed. The first question that will be answered is will Zen 3 by 4000 or 5000 series CPU's the reason being AMD has already released their 4000 series APU's which are based on Zen 2 and not Zen 3 i.e. last Gen so likely to sow confusion in the minds of prospective many buyers assuming that a 4700x and 4700G are of the same generation when they are not. Though it is likely AMD will keep the confusing naming scheme and thus Zen 3 will be 4000 series processors. Whilst the RDNA2 cards are going to launched 3 weeks later on the 28th of October, that I am sure will come close to the Nvidia's 3080 in terms of price vs performance.

AMD Ryzen Zen 3 4800x 10 Core 5ghz CPU, Cinebench Benchmark Scores (Est.) / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

Latest Zen 3 speculation is that apart from the expected 16 core and 12 core top end processors there could also be a new 10 core 20 thread processor. Which makes sense given that processors that fail Quality control at 12 cores can have 2 of their worst cores disabled and then sold as 10 cores instead of having 4 cores disabled and being sold as 8 core 3800x processors, in fact the 10 core would be the new 4800x processor given that there is already a 8 core 3700x / 4700x. Also it would complete well against Intel's 10 core 10900k, so the 4800x should be a 5 ghz 10 core cpu that would go well with Nvidia's new RTX 3080.

By: HGR

Its not going to much longer before we get AMD's big reveal it's Intel crushing 7nm Zen 3 processors with my focus for the past year being on what to expect for the top 2 Ryzen processors, i.e. currently the 3900x and the 3950x. Back in May I speculated that Zen 3 should see a IPC gain of at least 15% and possibly as high as 22%, and from what I have seen to date we still appear to be on track to achieve those goals, typically ranging from 18% to 22% increases in performance given expected increases in clock speeds of 200mhz and better layout of the CCX's in 8 core chiplet packages resulting in better integration and use of L3 cache.

AMD Ryzen 4900x / 5900x and 4950x / 5950x Zen3 4th Gen IPC and Clock Speed and Core Specs / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

Its not going to much longer before we AMD's big reveal it's Intel crushing 7nm Zen 3 processors with my focus on what to expect for the top 2 Ryzen processes i.e. currently the 3900x and the 3950x. Back in May I speculated that Zen 3 should see a IPC gain of at least 15% and possibly as high as 22%. We are still on track for at least 15% gains. I also speculated that we could see a jump in core counts i.e. 4950x jumping from 16 to as many as 24. Unfortunately that was just wishful t6hinking on my part as since there has been nothing to suggest that there will be even a 20 core Ryzen processor let alone 24 core .

Also it looks like AMD has learned it's lesson from it's recently launched APU confusion, with the G chips being 4000 series processors despite being based on Zen 2 rather than Zen 3,. So its probable that Zen 3 naming will be 5000 series processors rather than 4000. Which means for instance a 4950x becomes 5950x, which is what I have my eye out for my next system build, especially if it can be over clocked.

Why Moores Law is NOT Dead! / Companies / Computing

By: N_Walayat

For as long as I can remember the argument has been that Moores Law (doubling in cpu processing power every 2 years) was always just about to end due to the inability to shrink the cpu dies further and thus an end to exponential increase in processing power that is usually measured in cpu transistor count , I did not agree with this 5 years ago when I first started writing about the exponential AI mega-trend where to date it has not turned out to be true on either transistor count or the COMPUTE power basis which is what people should actually be focused upon, after all that is what one actually utilises COMPUTE POWER.

My video of over 2 weeks ago speculated that the 3900XT would be clocked at 4.1ghz base, 4.8ghz turbo. Which was pretty close to the actual spec with the turbo just 100mhz lower.

AMD 3900XT, 3800XT, 3600XT Refresh Means Zen 3 4000 AMD CPU's Delayed for 5nm Until 2021? / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

AMD has leaked specs on 3 new desktop processors to be released as early as Mid June, which are refreshes for 3 Ryzen 3000 series cpus featuring higher clock speeds for the 3900x that becomes the 3900XT, 3800x becomes the 3800XT and so on for the 3600XT at the same price as existing processors, so the X variants will drop in price.

These chips are a bit of a surprise because everyone's been eagerly waiting for the fourth gen Zen 3 desktop processors to start appearing from August or September, which hopefully will also include a 4950x

So why release Zen 2 XT' refresh? We'll it appears to be to put the gaming CPU nail in Intel's 10th gen Comet late coffin. Intel's 10,900k and 10,700k processors that the XT will seek to displace from their gaming number 1 spots..
