    RTX 3060 12GB, shader cores and potential 6GB variant

    I already signed up a My Notify for the $409 version of this card. I'm not a gamer, and I don't want to pay extra for RGB.

    RTX 3060 12GB, shader cores and potential 6GB variant

    OK, but I didn't see the ability to sign up for a different 3060 SKU or any 3070 or 3080 SKUs. Not that I need either of those. :happy:

    RTX 3060 12GB, shader cores and potential 6GB variant

    OK. So I signed up for the original version of the 3060, but now I'm thinking I might want the new 12 GB version. So I tried to sign up for this version under My Notifies, but I couldn't see any buttons or menus to do the signup. Does that mean you are allowed to do just one signup at a time?

    RTX 3060 12GB, shader cores and potential 6GB variant

    $299 for a 3060 might be just right for me. Or maybe that $175 3050. I'm not a gamer, just a Lightroom and Photoshop user so I need a decent GPU. But money not spent on that new vid card is money that's available for an AIO cooler to replace the stock AMD cooler. Or a hundred other items.

    Is overclocking FINALLY dead?

    I'm rocking an AMD 3900X in an ASUS Strix-E board. After reading a lot of threads I have decided that I'm going to get an AIO cooler for the CPU, but I'm not going to try to overclock it. I will tweak my RAM settings. Agree that the glory days of oc'ing CPUs is behind us. In a way, that's...

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    So what's the answer? Or even a way to find out the truth? Congressional investigation? Just kidding. Maybe it is the scalpers, who are now making a pile of money selling to the miners?

    New ASUS X570 BIOS Update [09/08/2020 - Version 2608 for Strix X570-F]

    How reliable are these modded BIOSes? Do they change the standard BIOS or just add additional features? Out of curiosity, what kind of programming skills are needed for BIOS mods?

    Is overclocking FINALLY dead?

    So I have an AMD 3900X, and I have not tried any overclocking yet. But from what I have read, I can improve AMD's auto-overclocking by replacing the AMD Wraith cooler with a better one, maybe an AIO. I can improve overall performance somewhat by boosting RAM to 3800, but not more than that...

    Does any of this really matter? Sure it's "fun" to bellyache about Red and Green until we are blue in our virtual faces. But not to put too fine a point on it, so freakin what? I've read that the cryptominers are now in the market for more cards due to the price of Bitcoin, that...

    What happened to AMD's 'Big Supply'?

    So which AIB brands or models do not have inferior components? Does Nvidia bin the GPU chips they sell to the AIBs or do the AIBs do it themselves?

    What else can go wrong in 2020??? Ryzen TR 3960x issues

    I have found the Thermaltake Dr. Power PSU tester to be very helpful in siutations like these, if only to rule the the PSU as the source of the problem. Cost is about $30, well worth it.

    how much temp improvement for AMD 3900X using Arctic Freezer II 360 instead of AMD Wraith cooler?

    I'm interested in this Arctic Freezer cooler as a replacement for the AMD Wraith cooler, but before I spend the $$$, I would like to know just how much improvement in temps I can expect with the AIO cooler. Also, are the fans running all the time with the AIO, or are they off at lower temps...

    Quick Question about BIOS (UEFI) Flashing

    With ASUS, they are constantly releasing new versions. I've given up. I'll wait until others have pronounced a given version to be stable and reasonably issue-free. My rig has not crashed once in over six months and that's important to me, more than the latest-latest new tweaking option.

    I bookmarked this web page so I won't have to ask again. ;) That's the good news. The bad news is that I'm like over 14000 down on the list.:( Gonna be weeks if not months before I'm notified. EDIT: 1400, not 14000. :censored:

    Where is this urgency for new GPUs coming from?

    I did register for a 3060 Ti on the EVGA website. Can't hurt, may even help. I just hope I don't miss their notification before the "window" expires. Thing is, I thought I would get either an Nvidia model or the EVGA model, based on features, price, and recommendations. Honestly I'm getting...

    RTX 3000 Series easy to find, not so for AMD 6000

    OK. I give up. :censored: :banghead: I will wait 2-3-4 months to get a 3060 Ti at MSRP, not a penny more. (OK, maybe $5-$10 more ...) If I wanted to pay like 200% for a 3060 Ti, I would get a 3070 or maybe even a 3080 instead, which I don't need because I'm not a gamer.

    RTX 3000 Series easy to find, not so for AMD 6000

    I just wish I had a MC where I live, but they pulled out of this area years ago. I would have to drive like 400+ miles to the nearest MC, and obviously I can't do that.
