    6900 xt won’t boot on PCIE1

    The classic fix - moved from MSI to ASUS. :ROFLMAO: I sadly have done the same, recently. Used to be a hardcore MSI guy (back when the MSI Lightning cards were out and their awesome X99 XPOWER boards)...but have slowly moved back to ASUS even though they pissed me off years ago. I'm sure I'll...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    MN Micro Center had 5 of the 4090 TUF OC (the expensive ones) this morning when I was there - 10 of the 4080 TUF Gaming. The 4090s were gone within an hour and the 4080s are moving briskly.

    One Weird Trick Relaunching RTX 4080 12GB as 4070 Ti

    I mean...it's true. Just in reverse. The 3080 12GB had more cores than the 3080 10GB.

    You go from "grossly misleading" to "pushing it" - depending on the use case it hits that 2x-4x mark. A quick google found 2x pretty easily. I don't think we can call NVIDIA out too much for that stuff.

    Very cool! Me too. I bought mine at Micro Center (MN) last week... Maybe the new BIOS revisions coming out has something to do with how to unlock it??? EXCITE. https://hardforum.com/threads/new-asus-bios-enables-curve-optimizer-for-5800x3d.2023712/

    I think it was powered by CPU sales. People building new rigs.

    Yup. I bought a 4080 STRIX. It's $50 more to get an RTX 4090 FE - but where do I buy that card? Plus, I already have one (and a 4090 STRIX). Also a proud (former) RTX 3090 Ti (x2) owner. :) It is an awesome card!

    Sure - maybe a couple of weeks ago. Now? Online stores, Micro Centers - pretty much wiped out.
