The support is not handled by NV, but rather the partners.
all the gddr5x cards are actually broken.
gddr5x only runs full speed some times and in certain data structures. there are 3 modes of operation. sometimes the card ends up running in mode 2. ie not much faster than ddr5. the slow memory doesnt seem to bottleneck much though. having said that you can find compute benchmarks where a 1070 beats a 1080 because it trips the mode change on the ddr5x.
nvidia need to mature the hardware and/or software to prevent this happening. i think its just a matter of first gen implementation.
edit: docs say it runs dual and quad modes. but i read somewhere it has a third slower mode. but cant find it.
Not the first, that'd be the Voodoo 5 6000
Also, I wouldn't quite say it's at quad 780 levels... more like quad K2200 which are ~750 Ti equivalent.
Still a funny card though
You'd think with Pascal's much better efficiency a dual GPU card with 2 x 1080 or even 1080 Ti chips would be easy compared to say the GTX 590 or 295X2...
I wonder if that's why HBM2 is getting more popular? After all the P100 and V100 use it but no nvidia consumer cards do.
Because these are specialty low volume cards where pricing is not the most important issue nor is stock level. Deloyment is planned months in advance when you roll out this kind of gear.
yes youre right its pretty close to 4x750 ti. they are $600-700 on ebay and hard to see the value in that. not to mention the problems you get with many gpus. its a bit silly in this day and age i cant hook up 44 gpus to one motherboard because bios manuf. are cheap assses.
ozbargain has a deal for destiny 2 for around $40 AUD for 1080 and 1080ti users, didnt link incase its not allowed (grey market maybe?)
Yeah i saw that.
Tempting, although i never played destiny 1 so not sure if its worth it.
ozbargain says expired, but it is still active (just bought for myself)
Slightly cheaper on ebay currently, by about $6 AUD
The one from Gaming Dragons for $50 shows as expired, but there is a new Kinguin one for $43
Yeah the gaming dragons one works though, is what I was getting at. nice deal on the kinguin one, coulda saved $7
this one should be worth a play through, esp @ that price.. First one did some things really well and others not so well, should be some lessons learnt.
anyone rocking one of these? hows it go?
EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC HYBRID Waterblock Cooler, Cooling, 400-HY-5598-B1
It looks like the exact cooler used on EVGA 1080ti SC2 hybrid, I am still waiting for the shipment from US and gonna see if its going to work on my Titan Xp.
yeah should fit.. Think I am over custom loops, might go that cooler and the upcoming 360mm corsair AIO for cpu
IIRC it's the same cooler they used for the 980ti hybrid.
They're ok once you replace the stock standard fan ( which is quite loud)
to something better.
Yeah 1 review I saw said it idles @ same fan speed as full load, wonder how a Scythe GT would go..
After some opinions, would it be worth using a NZXT Kraken G12 + Corsair H60 on my GTX1080Ti Aorus Xtreme ?
what's the objective?
To waste money like our economy is about to go bust...
Temps and stuff, higher overclocks
