    ASUS Strix RTX 3080 Running Below Advertised Boost Clock

    Run GPU-Z whilst you're gaming and watch the PerfCap Reason under Sensors - it should tell you why it's downclocking (power/thermals). *Edit* I just noticed you tried that - if it's power then you need to either increase the power limit or undervolt it - it's already doing the best it can at stock.

    The Ampere RTX 3080 Ti Owners Thread

    What Seasonic PSU is it? I have a Seasonic 850w 80-plus Platinum running my 3090Ti and 5800X3D with zero issues - are you overclocking/undervolting?

    This happened to me too (I use ProtonVPN) - there's a workaround here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-health/status-windows-11-21h2#2819msgdesc

    The Ampere RTX 3090 Ti Owners Thread

    On my overclocked 3070, I could fly around in Rio at around 64 fps max on Ultra settings at 1440p - on my undervolted 3090Ti I'm getting around 58 fps at 4k Ultra settings which, with G-Sync and HDR on my LG C2 42" is absolutely glorious *however* it's still not a completely smooth experience as...

    6950XT Performance

    Exactly - look how competitive AMD have been with Ryzen vs. Intel - nobody saw the 5800X3D coming, or really expected it to deliver the way it did. AMD have some brilliant engineering talent and made huge strides with their rasterization performance - they know comparable RT performance is...

    6950XT Performance

    I suspect AMD will be all-in on RT in the 7xxx series cards - I don't think they expected it to be that big a differentiator this gen (and in most games, it isn't) but Nvidia's advantages here (including DLSS) definitely gave them the appearance of having the true 'next generation' product...

    The RTX Related Games, Benchmarks, Software, Etc Thread.

    Nah - Dying Light 2 did RT better than this (No RT GI here) - besides, as excellent as Metro is, I think Cyberpunk is still the high water mark for RT. Interesting how crippled the PS5 version is though - those are some deep cuts for a so-called 'quality' mode.

    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D Cache Eight Core 4.5GHz (Socket AM4) Processor - Retail - Go Go Go xD

    Well, both CPU's worked (briefly) but only with the CPU cooler resting on top of them - the moment I tightened it down (even just finger-tight) the board posted a CPU error - definitely seems like the motherboard (or at least, the socket).

    Yeah - I've ordered a replacement motherboard - gonna have to take it all out to install it anyway so a little later today I'll be testing the MB with just the PSU + RAM - I'm not holding out much hope but never say never right? :)

    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D Cache Eight Core 4.5GHz (Socket AM4) Processor - Retail - Go Go Go xD

    I didn't remove anything except the CPU and cooler - no bent pins - the CPU warning light being on for one known working CPU (with that board) and another (presumably) working 5800X3D would seem to indicate my motherboard's had it.

    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D Cache Eight Core 4.5GHz (Socket AM4) Processor - Retail - Go Go Go xD

    Yeah - a few days ago - was working fine before with a 5600X in it - now I get the CPU light with both. I suspect it's a socket issue - had the board a while now.

    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3D Cache Eight Core 4.5GHz (Socket AM4) Processor - Retail - Go Go Go xD

    Got mine today and just opened up my PC to install it - on powering up I got a CPU warning on my motherboard - "Oh no! I've gotten a dud!" - put the old CPU back in to get it working again - CPU warning still "Oh no! Dead motherboard!" :(

    The Ampere RTX 3090 Ti Owners Thread

    I'm not doubting that the next gen of Nvidia (and AMD) GPUs isn't going to be great - but the majority of games being released for the next 4-5 years will be targeting the PS5 and XBox - how much performance are you going to need to play games designed for a 3700X and a RTX 2060/70 equivalent...

    The Ampere RTX 3090 Ti Owners Thread

    I'm pretty sure the 40xx series will be a paper launch - Nvidia have already said they'll continue to sell the 30xx series alongside the 40xx's so I'm guessing they're expecting to have more of the current-gen cards than the next gen. Either way I'm sitting out the 40xx series - this new card's...

    The Ampere RTX 3090 Ti Owners Thread

    Not Kaapstad, but I've been very impressed with the undervolting potential (currently have mine running faster than stock at 350w/74% TDP), and the improvements to VRAM temps - never seems to get hotter than 64 degrees whilst under gaming or benchmark loads even overclocked to a (ridiculous)...

    6600 xt mining

    Beats me. The amount of ETH earned by mining hasn't changed that much (although it has decreased as difficulty's gone up) - the value of ETH is down at the moment though.

    Mine's a Ti so it's not directly comparable but I've got the core clock fixed at 1995MHz (stock speed) @ 0.925mV, VRAM is +1100 (the Ti's VRAM runs pretty cool) and I've power-limited it to 70% by running a benchmark and nudging the power down until it starts dropping frequency then backing off...

    RTX3070 fe overclock

    Yeah, I should've been more specific - I ran the card at stock to see where its 'ideal' voltage sits then created a custom curve in Afterburner that's flat from there on up (select the node on the voltage you want to use, raise it to the frequency you want then hit 'L' to lock it then apply -...
