  1. It's a good thing we are tracking now, I would like to talk about @BWG's questionable stats on the 5th...
  2. I dare you to run that in the TC... You won't
  3. I keep a .50 caliber round on my desk, what's your point?
  4. There shouldn't be any difference between 16x 2.0/3.0, 2.0 16x its the same bandwidth as 3.0 8x, and 8x 3.0 does not suffer any penalty in bandwidth related to PPD.
  5. I honestly don't think I will ever win a shuffle, because i'm unwilling to buy bundles I don't need like most others. Sure I could click them all, but why? The only bundles I click are the ones with PSU's, cause who doesn't need more PSU's. I did win that 3060, but that doesn't count right? I need a 3070 at minimum to replace a 2080Ti.
  6. Without a doubt the first 5 minutes of one of those will be normal and cut to a dubbed XXX scene.
  7. Well known that AMD gives you wonky lane assignments in FaH. It drives my OCD nuts, but as long as it works i'm cool with it. I have a fair mix of both AMD and Intel chipsets and I have always noticed Intel boards do a better job at PCI-e lane assignment. *Shrugs*
  8. Each generation effectively doubles GB/s. Most likely will be fine if indeed he can get the PCI-e 4.0 interface to work as intended. My guess is that 4.0 1x will be "fairly"close to what we see at 3.0 4x speeds folding. Again, I have not had the pleasure of playing with 4.0 or any 3 series cards, so I couldn't tell you, that is why I asked Basstiaan to comment, I think he ran these experiments not to long ago. Of course you wouldn't notice any issues on 2.0 @ 16x, I wouldn't expect you to, but if you folded 2.0 @ 1x, compared to 3.0 @ 1x there should be a difference, we are talkin
  9. Well, I would recommend throwing one of your Ti's on that and swapping the 3070 to something higher bandwidth. Is it going to be your main GPU? or just for folding on? Short answer, no, I don't believe it would bottleneck a 3070 folding, but anything else, yea, for sure. I still have yet to land any 3 series cards, so I appreciate the ask, but I am not qualified to really answer that in lieu of proper experience. Maybe @Bastiaan_NL could render some advice on that.
  10. Grats bro, I entered too. Hope I win as well. You got that winning alert fast, I usually don't get any emails until like 9pm.
