Which RTX 3080 GPU to BUY and AVOID! Nvidia, Asus, MSI , Palit, Gigabyte, Zotac, MLCC vs POSCAPS / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

Many AIB RTX 3080 Cards are tending to fail when running under load towards 2000mhz resulting in screen artifacts to game players being kicked to their desktops and even outright system crashes.

Igor Labs first identified the probable cause being AIB's use of cheap capacitor arrays to cut costs thus causing an issue in terms of noise in the power delivery system to the GPU's under boost load at above 1900mhz, the higher the boost the greater the risk of issues i.e. greater instability is when cards boost towards and over 2000mhz, well beyond Nvidia's FE nominal boost clock is at 1710mhz FE which in practice can boost to about 1900mhz in some games, though is less's than that which ABI's boost to hence the crashes being experienced.

By: HGR

There is growing disquiet across the blogosphere surrounding the RTX 3080 AIB cards that goes beyond the frustration of lack of supply and this is because of countless reports that AIB card's are proving problematic for many users that whilst playing GPU intensive games result in issues such as artifacts on screen or that they end up being kicked back to their desktops which suggests an issue when the GPU's are under heavy load i.e. at high boost clock speeds and temperatures.

Watch Before Upgrading / Buying RTX 3000, RDNA2 - CPU vs GPU Bottlenecks / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

Nvidia RTX 3000 mania is likely soon to be joined by AMD RDNA2 mania. However, here's why you may in large parts be wasting your money if considering upgrading from your existing GPU, especially if it is a 2000 series RTX or 5000 series AMD, and may not be a wise choice to spend £700 for a new GPU even if your existing card is as old as a GTX 970. That's if you can get hold of a GPU courtesy of extremem demand and the scalpers.

Anyway watch this video first before paying upwards of £650 for the likes of an RTX 3080.

RTX 3080 Mania, Ebay Scalpers Crazy Prices £62,000 Trollers Insane Bids for a £649 GPU! / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

Forget crypto's the real mania today is not in Bitcoin but RTX 3080 GPU's where the worldwide supply of the cards has been bought up within 5 minutes of Nvidia's launch largely by scalpers who have then gone on to dump the cards on the likes of Ebay with many starting bidding at ridiculous amounts for the £649 card, starting bids of upwards of £3,500!

If you though that no one is going to bid such ridiculous amounts for the privilege of getting hold of Nvidia's latest GPU you would be mistaken as depending your perspective the bidding is truly epic or insane, bids of upwards of £10,000, going all the way to £62,800! How many are real and how many are trolls? Even I was tempted to put in a bid for £90k! NINTY THOUSAND POUNDS FOR A £649 GPU!

LandRover Discovery Sport Service Blues, How Long Before Oil Change is Actually Due? / ConsumerWatch / Land Rover

By: HGR

When you buy a landrover Discovery Sport your sold a sales pitch that a service is due every 21,000 miles or every 2 years. However, once you start driving the car you soon realise that the sales pitch is BS. The car is just not built well enough to last that long. In fact you will be lucky to make it to 12,000 miles before service is due! In fact googling I see Land Rover have now changed the service interval to every 16,000 miles, which is still too long!

This video illustrates the difference between Landrover's sales pitch and reality, where this car has driven LESS than 4,000 miles since it's last service so what do you think the service counter reads? One would imagine around 15-16,000 miles, get ready to be shocked as most Disco sport owners tend to be!

Is Sports Direct Racial Profiling Shoppers? Meadowhall Sheffield / ConsumerWatch / Shopping

By: N_Walayat

Racial profiling is basically where retailers single out shoppers on the basis of skin tone for 'special attention'. Usually this means staff traipse around the store after targeted shoppers with smartphone's or walkie talkies in hand in an obvious manner, which obviously creates for an unwelcoming climate for shoppers.

Virtually every ethnic person in Britain experiences being racially profiled whilst out shopping to some extent, in fact it's become so common that many like us have become immune to the special attention, and just tend to blank them out.
