    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    Can you give me an example of this utopian communist country where everyone gets a free 3090Ti?

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    Yes but The efficiency difference is about 3% between 50% - 100% load. Not a huge concern.

    Zotac rtx 3090 @ $999 on woot

    A lot can happen in two years. 40 series will be out this year.

    Which point? The adapter? There’s no dispute. It’ll work to deliver power but it won’t give you the extra features provided by the 4 pin on an ATX 3.0 I made that clear two posts ago. Apologies you got confused. You’re welcome too

    You learned something today. You’re welcome.

    Right. I believe there’s only one currently by MSI. That’s the main problem if you need a PSU ASAP

    An adapter adapts the 12pin. It leaves the 4 sense pins disconnected.

    My understanding is those extra 4 sense pins on top of the 12pin PCIe connector allow for better GPU power management and potentially better performance from AD10x GPU's Speaking for myself, it's the route I would go if I was planning to upgrade my PSU. My PSU's typically last through two...

    If you’re going to get a new PSU for a 4090 it might as well be an ATX 3.0 one

    transient power consumption spikes

    I mean... yes, but not in a meaningful way 80+ Gold for example is rated for 90% efficiency at 50% but you still get at least 87% efficiency at 100% load. The efficiency difference between 50 and say 70-80% load which still gives you plenty of headroom is probably closer to 1%

    Will Zen 4 be the real deal and a worthy upgrade from Zen 3

    With so many cases having options for front and top mount radiators, I wonder if AIO's take advantage of this and offer dual radiator solutions.

    Gave up and bought the GTX 1650.

    I don't think PCI4 will make any appreciable difference with either of those cards TBH. You'd have been better off buying something second hand. 1650 is a pretty anemic gaming card.

    Modern GPU Stability Test?

    There's no magic bullet to stress test a GPU, there's also no guarantee that it's the GPU causing the crash and not instability elsewhere in the system.

    When should you replace an SSD?

    The machine in question runs QuickBooks where I do my invoicing and occasional HTPC duties. The company file is stored on the SSD but also backed up to another drive as well as having a cloud based backup. Loss of the drive will not be detrimental and will not cause any consequential data loss...
