    We've come a long way. Most of those coolers are truly colossal. I remember not too long ago, my ROG Strix 1080ti with its 2,5 slot cooler was considered enormous (and also extremely power hungry with its 280W )

    Remembering my 2080Ti shutting down all the time due to gravity, vibration, and heat messing with my PCIe connection to the mobo, I wouldn't call "support sticks" a gimmick. After installing a brace I had zero issues. That said, I do find the glow stick risers a bit ridiculous and have a hard time being forced to pay for something I'm going to throw in the trash. I prefer the low profile, expansion slot screw on type.

    If youve been toying with the idea of moving to water cooling, I think nows the time if you are considering 40-series. It definitely looks like the way to go both for thermals and just to keep the size reasonable. Or if you want to stick with air cooled, I guess you could try converting a dumpster into a PC case to hold these behemoths. Just make sure you budget for a house addition construction costs in your build.

      you will be fine, you may need pretty chunky radiators but at least you can put them someplace else.
      Water has the highest heat capacity of basically any substance, if you can passively get the heat to the fans you can easily get it into the water

    • MrOffTrail
      MrOffTrail 7 hari yang lalu +2

      @person thing not really how the physics of water-cooling works, but I did include a link to an article about the iChill Frostbite card in my last comment. You can see it is thinner than 2 slots, and only extends the length of the PCB. If you look at the air-cooled cards closely, you can see they extend well past the PCB匈d guess at least a third of the overall card is overhang past the PCB. I will say if (and its a big if, since Im waiting to see how AMDs top offering stacks up head-to-head, which I committed to do once I heard 40-series would not get DisplayPort 2.0) I get a 4090, I will put it on a dedicated loop. Probably not necessary, but it wont hurt, and will make for a visually interesting build. But the iChill, and EKs custom water block www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-vector2-fe-rtx-4090-d-rgb-nickel-plexi both look similar in size to 30-series water blocks.

      @MrOffTrail It is more that the heat produced by these thing (as seen by the size of the coolers) in gonna need some chunky water blocks to run enough water to catch the heat from these cards

    Remember this happened almost 8 years ago and AMD rocked the scene with Radeon Fury Nano.
    Hopefully Intel or AMD do that again because at this point Nvidia basically went off the rails requiring a full sized PC for a card that is basically a rebranded 60 or 70 series selling at Titan prices.

    I get the feeling that the reason many manufacturers have omitted the RTX 4080 12GB pictures is because they originally rendered them as "RTX 4070" and Nvidia blindsided them.

      @razorgxp The new 4070 line is most likely just binned so called 4080 chips. It's pretty obvious to most of us, including many in the tech industry, that Nvidia rebranded the 4070 to "4080 lessor" so they can charge more for it. There's a reason they didn't initially announce the 4070 until the media started clamouring about about it missing.

      @Sodafs we just gonna completely ignore that the chip die in the 12gb 4080 and the 16gb 4080 are completely different and that the die name of the 12gb 4080 is traditionally used for 70 series cards?
      It's simple. NVidia rebranded the 70 as a lower tier 80 and their 60 as their 70.

    These silly cards just make me more excited for Intel and to see what AMD does. I've always stayed a gen or two behind for cost reasons so I know I'm not the market for these, but c'mon, it can't keep going in this direction. Eventually they're going to be too big, hot, and power hungry for the average person to use.

    • Demos
      Demos 6 hari yang lalu +1

      lots. more AIOs would be nice but the fact is water cooling tends to take up more absolute space than air cooling (the water is just transporting the heat to an air-cooling setup in the end). And liquid cooling is something of a pain the the but to maintain
      Speaking of which, I need to drain my loop

      @Cacodemon345 did you just eat a sticky grenade? I meant that all iPhones look the same so you need a sleeve to make them look different. So if all AIBs leave and only Nvidia makes the cards, all cards will look the same just like all iPhones look the same

    • Bernd S
      Bernd S 7 hari yang lalu +1

      @Cacodemon345 I suppose you entirely missed the point. it's not what Founders Edition Nvidia GPUs or iphones do, can do or can't do (obviously you can't call someone with a GPU....), it's about them looking the same if there won't be AIBs left for Nvidias GPUs
      can't deny it, if you place 5 iphones next to each other they look the same. no widgets, no custom grid size or spacing, etc. So what's left is a different wallpaper, and of course attachments and cases/sleeves.
      And yeah, calling it "gaming" if you play on a phone is still ridiculous in 2022. That's like calling yourself a gardener if you have one plot plant in your kitchen, or calling yourself a professional baseball player if you played catch as a kid. #shotsfired (ok, not really, but I hope you get my point)

      @XuryFromCanada GPUs aren't general-purpose computers or even if are, aren't designed to work like one.

      @XuryFromCanada I don't really care too much about what my next graphics card will LOOK like physically as long as it offers good specs at a good price and good drivers, ... but I kind of agree with you ... the day nvidia manages to drive away all of their AIB partners will be a sad day ... for consumers and nvidia alike.
      There once was a popular graphics chip manufacturer who at some point decided to exclusively produce graphics cards "in house", thereby pissing off any AIBs who previously worked with this graphics chip manufacturer ... the AIBs moved on to partner with nvidia instead and that other graphics chip manufacturer went bankrupt and got bought by nvidia a while later ... you know who I'm talking about ... 3dfx of course ...
      I think the AIB cards played an important role in nvidias rise from being just one relatively new and unknown graphics chip manufacturer amongst many (Ati, avance logic, cirrus logic, rendition, S3, tseng labs ... they have all been there long before nvidia) to becoming the biggest manufacturer of (PC) graphics chips.
      It appears that nvidia has forgotten what happens when you piss off your AIB partners ...

    I now want to see a Frigidaire GPU, it will be 6 slots long, and plug into 3 pci express ports just for support. It will be a mix of white, grey, and beige color themes and look like an over size box with some fans on it. It's website landing page will only have the specs and a user manual on it. It'll also have a remote that you can use to heat up your house in the winter, as such the card will also have a build in psu and require a separate power cable to be plugged into the "card's" back I.O. As for branding it'll only have a part number and be prices just a bit more then the rest of the gpu's out there.

      Although there is a lot of wiggle room, so it should be based on say yearly cost per 1 hour of gaming per day or hours of gaming per week, and just multiply by how much we game. Along with hours per week web browsing and such.
      They would use unrealistically low gaming time to make the number low if they can.

    Was wondering if GN would consider making a video about warranties / customer support from current GPU makers. There seems to be a lot of new companies from China that offer GPUs; EVGA - the king of customer service is gone and I am not sure what kind of BS level to expect from the new offerings. From my current understanding Asus and MSI are still decent options, Gigabyte is the bottom of the barrel, for others I have never had a card from them so a professional evaluation would be great! Those new cards look so heavy, I would imagine that PCB bend would be inevitable if there is no "GPU stick" in place, so many users will have to check in with the manufacturer regarding a warranty.

      @Tesseract Orion Ripped off? I have the second-fastest GPU you can currently buy and I got it 43% below MSRP thanks to EVGA. I paid less for it than I sold my 1080 Ti for, lol. It's been integral to my home business that kept me afloat during COVID and I used it to mine 2x its value in crypto while I slept. And when I do have a chance to play games with it, it produces great framerates at 4K, with or without DLSS. It's a beast, and if I could go back in time and change my decision the only thing I'd do is buy two and set up a secondary rendering/compute/encode PC.
      If Nvidia charges $2000 for something that costs them $500 to make, AMD will charge $1900 for something that costs them $200 to make thanks to using chiplets. They're not going to cut you a deal when you submit your list of pro-AMD social media posts. This doesn't make either one of them your friend or your enemy, they are corporations and this is business. Wake up. Buy the best product for your needs, not based on politics that exist only inside your head.

    By the time we get to the 5000 series, well need AIO cards or custom water loops for the cards to keep them cooled. I just upgraded from my 1080ti that was a beast of a card from gigabyte to the 3080 strix card and the size differences is actually comical!

    With my favorite GPU manufacturer leaving the business, the only other company I would even consider is Asus. Considering how good their 780 DCU II OC was, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on their latest design for the 4000 series. Or I might just skip this gen since I have a 3080, and this is looking to be the worst price/performance generation ever, and that's saying a lot considering the past two years.
    Also, it's not pronounced like peanut butter.

    Heh, decades ago before it had the name "gpu support stick" I was using a cassette tape case (remember those?), wedged between the bottom of the PC case and the gpu. It was the perfect fit, non-conductive (in case it got dislodged and fell against any motherboard contact points), and depending on your PC case, mostly invisible.

Do they have all PCIE lanes choked? 1080ti should push 60 no issue for that game.

    I thank Nvidia for releasing such cringe. My freind is a scalper who buys cards and sells them on, even he said no one would buy the 4000 series so he's not going to bother. Honestly the pricing is just ridiculous. I'm fortunate enough that I could buy one of the new cards but I didn't get that money making poor financial decisions and I'm not going to waste it on this garbage.
    Also there's no games worth playing anymore that would warrent such a card, mining is pointless now. What are Nvidia doing?
