    FT: Gigabyte RTX 4080 Gaming OC

    Picked up a Gigabyte RTX 4080 Gaming OC from NKD here on these forums a ways back for my brother, but it and his ASRock Taichi B650E motherboard refuse to work together. The card works fine in his old build, works in my son's build and works on my build, just refuses to work where it is...

    $1160 4080 vs $910 7900 XTX???

    Having owned a 7900 XTX and currently a 4090, I'd absolutely get the 7900 XTX for $910 over a $1160 4080. Even with a 4090, I still find RT to be trash on most games that offer it and you pointed out that it is not a big deal with you. Unless Nvidia has some feature that you absolutely MUST...

    Anyone seriously considering the 4070 TI

    Exactly, the main problem I have with the 4070ti. In 2023, only having 12GB of VRAM for $800 seems crazy to me and severely limits the cards potential. For me it might not be a big deal because I swap hardware fairly often, but most people hang onto hardware for years. I currently run a 4090...

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    I believe the idea of using a 1000W PSU with a high end system with a 4090 for sure has merit, it just is not absolutely required if you already have a good high power PSU. A 1000W would be more in it's efficiency sweetspot and would have overhead for future GPU/CPU power demands and compensate...

    4090 almost no performance loss at 75% power limit sweet spot

    Yeah I had messed with reducing the PL when I got my Suprim 4090. At 90% PL, I did a OC of +150 and +1000 memory and saw around a 5-7% performance boost (depending on benchmark) while consuming 50W less power at 400W peak. Not sure if it was 100% stable there, but gamed for a few hours...

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    No issues running my 4090 on a Corasair HX850i with a 7700X, (2) NVMe's, 1 SSD, EK AIO + 7 total fans. Debating picking up a newer PSU once there are more options out there and giving my HX to my son to replace his ancient LEPA G900-MA 900 W that has been running happily since late 2011.

    RTX 4090 [H] Owner's Official 3DMark Time Spy Scores

    Picked up a new MSI Suprim (non X) and plugged it in today. Great looking card and no coil whine compared to the Gaming X I had before it. Although I did not use the supplied power adapter and used a PSU specific 3x1 cablemod power connector, so maybe that may have helped with the whine...

    Who else is waiting on Zen 4 x3D before upgrading?

    What really jumped out to me was the gaming power consumption. 44W average with the 1 CCX disabled (essentially what will be a 7800X3D) seems mightily impressive for the gaming performance achieved. 13900k was using over 3x as much power for essentially the same average gaming performance.

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    Yeah as others have said, you should be good with a quality 750W. I was running my Merc with a HX850i and even with messing with an overclock I think it barely got much over 600W for my whole system at peak gaming with my 7700X Example playing.
