    Nvidia - Turing/Volta

    Well Im glad I cancelled my preorder.... Just wanted to get in line if it was going to be a good upgrade going to the 2080... But would make no sense for that small improvement and not getting a good price for my current card. Id probably consider it if I was buying new or doing a major upgrade though. Used priced on the 1080 ti are crazy good right now as people keep dumping their cards. Looking at the games I mainly play, there would be no noticeable benefit it seems. Is DLSS only for RTX lineup or will it be for previous gen? I guess if many devs implement DLSS then there might be a good boost after awhile. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_RTX_2080_Founders_Edition/33.html

    Time for upgrade soon

    I believe that specific set of Flare are to play nice with Ryzen cpu's, which probably have an XMP profile too I would think. The other has RGB tho The 1080 Ti is temping many right now for the low prices... The 2080 non ti might match its performance but those reviews should be out within a week. 1080 Ti might be the way to go to save a bit and get nearly the same performance of the 2080 non Ti if shows up that way as some of the leaks show. Also, Intel might be releasing its new chips here soon too "9700k" (solder tim/ihs). But the 8086k is probably not worth the extra over the 8700k as both should OC the same. AMD 2700x might be something to consider or the 2600x and non x, all of which might go a bit lower if Intel releases something here soon. Usually, the MB are cheaper too on AMD side. Or, you could buy the monitor and card now (or wait just a tiny bit longer for reviews on the RTX2000 series) and see if that does it for you. Im running 1440p and with everything on ultra in BFV demo I was between 80-110 fps usually but my card is OC some but the cpu (2600x, 6 core) is running stock.

    Seem like we should be comparing RTX 2080 to the GTX 1080 ti? and the 1080 ti is dropping in price... I don't know if it is really worth it. Not only that, right now almost all are 800US+. Ebay has tons of 1080 ti for under 550US some as low as 500. Then there is the shrink to 7nm what next year? So, I watch bunch of videos and some say they shifted or changed the naming (the confusion with Titan X, Xp all that) with this line up as the 2080 ti is the Titan and 2080 is the ti... but yet they did this to try to say the 1080 non ti is the comparison card at this price point? Im not sure how good the DLSS is going to be but does seem to give a good boost if the title supports it. To be honest I did pre-order the RTX 2080 but might cancel as I wanted to get in line if it was a good card... Waiting on leaks and some numbers before cancelling as there is a month to wait. I could sell my card being the Strix version it looks like around 575 - 625 currently only and this card was RTX 2080 was 800US, same price I paid for the 1080ti... Im still up from selling my Vega 56 for double what I paid, which I was able to get the 1080ti then... Looking more like a side grade at this point but like to play with new stuff for the fun of it. Probably just cancel and wait till next year but will hold out for awhile for more info.. https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/275961-nvidia-claims-rtx-gpus-are-much-faster-than-pascal-by-deliberately-comparing-the-wrong-cards

    I watched some of the reveal, but didn't catch it all... Was interesting with the ray tracing stuff but what about performance on the current games? Whats with the new measurement tool they using to measure performance, Im assuming its just for ray tracing. Then theres the new twin cooler, probably much quieter.

    Prices dropping so much... Ebay has 1080 ti used going for crazy prices... Rtx series should be here in a few days. Some reports the rtx 2080 at 8% faster than 1080 ti with price of 800us. If true then 1080ti might be a great bargain as everyone starts to dump them.

    What kind of probe you using? Did it help for benchmarks running as a dedicated physics cards? I think in the nvidia settings you have to point to it if you want it to be dedicated, you probably already did that just surprised it did not give any improvement.

    Dropping out

    Power cycle the modem before launching a game. Ask for a replacement modem if they own it.

    Glad there's 2 true players... Im hoping AMD keeps it up but supposed Intel new chips with solder, more cores and high clocks will keep it interesting.

    Try installing older drivers... Few other suggestions for the same code 43: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/861231/geforce-drivers/nvidia-amp-windows-10-how-i-solved-the-code-43-error-/

    I was having a bit of fun This is interesting, looks to be quite powerful: https://www.pcgamer.com/amd-built-a-powerful-semi-custom-ryzen-vega-soc-for-game-consoles-and-pcs/ "The SOC sports an 4-core/-8-thread Ryzen processor running at 3GHz, along with 24 Vega CUs clocked at 1.3GHz for graphics. The GPU basically amounts to a Radeon RX 580, and is perhaps even a bit more powerful."

    Good job all, really enjoying the updates!

    Possibly you could try these: 1. Uninstall nvidia display drivers. Use driver sweeper: https://www.guru3d.com/content-page/guru3d-driver-sweeper.html then reinstall drivers. 2. If you have extra ports on the back of the card, try another port like another vga/dvi/hdmi. 3. Try using a different cable. Probably not this but I had a dp cable go out... I really dont know how a freaking cable can go out it's so strange but happened to me. Maybe even try to hook up to another monitor, highly doubt that will work though. 4. Go into devmgr. See if it list the card. Click start<(type)devmgr<Display Adapters< (see if it lists your card) With everything getting pixlated. It really sounds like hardware related, the vram is probably having issues. If you install msi afterburner, you can try to downclock the ram and/or core. With msi afterburner up, you can monitor temps too, possibly it is overheating. So close to the new release if you can get it to limp along till then
