    If you like, show some comparison pics of your setup before & after the various changes/modifications you make/made, as well as comparisons showing temperature & power differences combined with differences in 'scores'. Tell a story of it if you like.

    Well, looks like 2x GTX 1080 Ti (especially the K|NGP|N variant) still easily destroys a single RTX 2080 Ti. Used these examples submitted by K|NGP|N himself to keep the comparison somewhat more consistent

    And, this should prove even more interesting. Who knows how long it will take for the 2080 Ti K|INGP|N to become available, or what kind of vital organs will need to be sold in order to pay for one of them.

    When they teased the 1080 TI KP cards, it was a couple of months after when they launched. The K|NGP|N premium over EVGA's best general market card is normally $300 to $350, so I'm expecting the card to be between $1500 to $1549. Will they be worth the price of admission? Yes, if you are going to OC the crap out of them with water at least. I do have a 2080 TI FTW3 card here (on loan) and with the right bios (the ones that K|NGP|N or the EVGA community has), you can push this card very far.

    Not yet. Status says repairing. I seriously doubt it can be repaired, but they're probably still looking at it. I did get an email from the engineer that called me. He wanted to let me know he had the board and would be examining and testing it. That was Thursday.

    Yeah, K|INGP|N cards are definitely the way to go. FTW3 are also awesome. I don't even want a 20 series GPU at all unless it is an EVGA 2080 Ti FTW3 or K|INGP|N. Compared to what I have already with my modded SC2, I would consider anything else to be a total waste of money for such a modest performance increase. The only reason I would buy any expensive GPU is to overclock the crap out of it. Otherwise, I would go totally cheap and buy some piece of crap GPU from AMD, like an RX 590 for $279. That's good enough for playing games.

    I will have a "build log" of sorts soon. I am documenting everything as I go. Unfortunately, I have hit a wall with this CPU, even with this massive radiator and powerful fans. I wanted to see how far I could take it undelidded but Cinebench crashes on anything 4.9 or higher. Temps spike over 95C.

    Yeah, you're going to have to use chilled water, AC or something more extreme for CPU benching. It should do OK on things that are not CPU intensive, like 3DMark and Unigine benchmarks, but forget about things like Cinebench or wPrime with normal ambient temps. Ain't going to happen unless you live at the North Pole, leave all the windows open and have it at or below about 45°F (7°C) ambient inside of the house. 7960X is the same way trying to bench higher than 4.9 using only normal ambient temperature cooling. Delid should help a lot though.

    The interesting thing to me about that is that his RTX 2080ti is only 30% faster than his GTX 1080ti, and that's with the 2080ti at a pretty unachievable 2385Mhz! He also overclocked the snot out of his GTX 1080ti I assume, but his overclock on his GTX 1080ti isn't anymore unusual than what he achieved on his 2080ti? If that's the case then 30% faster is a pretty good indicator of Turing gains over Pascal - it's not very much! And that's in DX12 which favours Turing even more, gains would be less in DX11.

    Hey gents,

    Hope you've all been well. I've mainly been too busy with moving and work/work travel to get any hobby time in at all - may not change for abit :eek:. Glad to see all my brothers are well and still doing crazy sh#t.
    I go for a quick sabbatical and now things are certainly tasty in CPU land. Can't say the same for GPU's unless I'm missing something about RTX?

    Any wins in Laptop land?


    This too disappoints me, mainly also due the the astronomical price.
