    Dang, just when it seems like AMD was finally going to do something right again with GPUs they go and do something stupid and half-cocked.

    They're bulk are pulled from display systems, etc. But you can get decent deals checking there once in awhile.

    Arctic p series does alright, I think can daisy chain with the right version, no rgb, etc. Check reviews on it, though.

    I just woke up, so give me a bit, but those are some options.

    They are probably different tech. The Microsoft resize BAR is driver and firmware related and likely implemented. It allows the access to the whole memory. But it takes a firmware update on the card and has to be implemented on the motherboard and turned on there as well. AMD never said you have to turn it on in the motherboard bios. This makes me think they are not the same.

    AMD is likely using the standard they created with either 1) CCIX (cache coherent interconnect for accelerators), or 2) infinity architecture. Those are similar, with the first one being open for companies to sign on, implement, and adopt (see Intel's CXL). The second is a faster version of infinity fabric used for their datacenter products. The first one is Intel's fault for not supporting, and Intel's fault for not having pcie 4.0. The latter, well pcie 4.0 phy supporting and tons of money.

    It's not anti- consumer, though.

    Edit: also, remember just because your competitor says you are doing something someway does not mean they are correct.

    I think 12 fans on my radiators would work better than 5 fans.

    Yes, for sure. Especially so since using 5 fans would leave a bare 120mm x 120mm spot on one radiator.

    (Just kidding. I know it was a typo and you meant 6 fans.)
