  1. MSI Discontinues GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING X TRIO 10G Graphics Card

    Why not discontinue all of them, and then rerelease the parts as crypto mining cards at 3x the MSRP?
  2. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    My postulation for the AMD stack. the Venn diagram of “cpu load requires 8-16 unvirtuized CPU and “GPU workload exceeds integrated video” is a near perfect circle. If you need all the CPU you can get, and it has to be local, you’re probably thinking threadripper 59X0. If you’re needing all the...
  3. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    What do you think the percentage of business use cases are that could use that much power locally that wouldn’t also have a video card? Once you account for “could run on a core 2 duo” roles like secretary, data entry, call center, accounting, hr, and manager usage, we are probably talking 75%+...
  4. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    I just checked with my buddy back at the last job. In 2019 they replaced all the core 2 duos with i5 9400s w/ 16GB ram and 256gb ssds. He said it’s a total waste, as they average about 2% cpu.
  5. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    Sounds like something is wrong with the image? Doesn’t match my experience at all. Zoom, word, excel, IntelliJ, Sql developer, power point, a dozen ssh sessions, chrome Firefox, and crash plan all running is like 30% cpu.
  6. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    That sounds like too little ram as opposed to too little cpu
  7. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    Corporate desktops are fine with 2 cores - hyper threading optional. I shared an office with the pc repair guy back in 2015 - for accounting, sales, hr and the call center people, they decided to stop buying new desktops in 2009 and stuck with the core 2 duos they bought in 2006. In 2010-11 he...
  8. Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite, good, bad, or ugly?

    The elite is the lower end of the spectrum, correct? Do you know if the X570 is basically the B550 Elite with a different chipset? Mostly I’m just trying to establish exactly what I bought just to get a mid range video card.
  9. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    To deviate a bit off topic, a power optimized pi 4 (all LEDs off. Nic set to 100mbit, cpu voltage reduced as far as you can, hdmi / local video off, and a few other tweaks) on a trimmed version of raspbian lite, is more power efficient in points per watt than basically any Intel processor I’ve...
  10. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    Huge snip - if I were writing from a desk top I’d quote point by point. I’m not there target audience of a GPU integrated 5950 - I have discreet GPUs in all my systems and would just turn off the integrated video. When I’m not gaming on my top end systems they are running Boinc or folding at...
  11. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    The business desktop use case is covered by the APU - AMD has a lot of those. On the Intel business side it’s i3s and i5s. In 18 years of working for fortune 100s it was only recently when I got to a high enough level to be able to order higher end hardware. i think we can rule out the 5900...
  12. Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite, good, bad, or ugly?

    I snagged a 6700XT via new egg shuffle and got stuck buying a Aorus Elite in part of the combo. Anyone used this board? Last time I used a gigabyte board was back in the core 2 quad days and I hated the “ultra durable” board, but maybe they have gotten better since then. if it’s not too bad...
  13. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    My assumption is the target audience of the X950 CPUs are enthusiasts that will already have a video card. Professionals that need CPU or bandwidth will opt for threadripper. Bang for the buck shoppers will go for the X900 series, but will also probably be running a mid range video card as...
  14. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    But that base set of functionality is literally worse than leaving it off. It takes up die space and some minimal amount of power for something nearly every person using the chip will turn off.
  15. Entire Family of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Could Feature Integrated Graphics

    Why on earth would I want, or even need, an iGPU wasting die / package space on the next 5950 (7950?). I suppose, maybe if the GPU shortage lasts indefinitely and my 1080ti eventually fails and I can’t buy a replacement. Even then, I’ve got a 560 backup card that is still likely better than...
  16. NVIDIA Could Be Reviving the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

    1080ti remake at the right price would be a grand idea, as it’s basically a 3060ti without RTX. I wonder if they could even tweak it a little for rerelease and pickup a little extra performance. A 1080ti Ultra ? :D
  17. Apple Fined $2 Million for Selling iPhones without Chargers in Brazil

    I want to say efficiency loss is tied to something like distance squared, but I haven’t looked into it in around a year. Could be I’ve confused or forgotten some of the details. Edit: first google hit https://debugger.medium.com/wireless-charging-is-a-disaster-waiting-to-happen-48afdde70ed9
  18. Apple Fined $2 Million for Selling iPhones without Chargers in Brazil

    The Apple option has mag safe - it guarantees that you’ll get perfect alignment, so it always hits that just under 70% efficacy if you don’t use a case. Of course, if you don’t use a case, mag safe will scratch your phone pretty quickly. If you do use the case, efficiency will drop again.
  19. Apple Fined $2 Million for Selling iPhones without Chargers in Brazil

    Did I miss something on Qi? Like, at best it’s terribly inefficient (best case scenario, perfectly aligned, below 70%), and at worst it seems to be a fire hazard. Additionally, heat decreases battery life, so not only do you get poor efficiency and a potential fire hazard, but you also kill...

    The new Noctua Redux versions are coming (now available?), you might actually be better to review the ones hot off the press, so to speak.
