ever since I saw him do the AMD broken pin trick with one the CPU's for some reason I never cared for him after that.
I think because he was jumping around like a little girl with that irritating voice..

i know it is more a matter of opinion and personal preference but Linus is okay, or at least he was good (and afraid of saying this) back in the day. a year and a half or so ago he was kinda good since he was unsponsored (except the unboxing which half were sent) and always said his personal opinion and was at least decent. (especially for Enter-ers to the Enthusiast world)
now he is still Decent and still good for new comers but the advertising starts to be strongly felt. most of his viewer base is either newcomers, old timers and possibly cat lovers (which were A LOT in his videos, but now it's with his baby. though a few times his cats almost costed him thousands of $$ for almost destroying expensive hardware in videos, and once they got him with a 30' monitor)

not forcing anyone to love his videos, but i still like them from time to time.

a bit (or a lot) risky move but if successful saves a CPU. (since i doubt an RMA would work)

Straight form the Nvidia website:
also, browsed the ASUS website to further confirm this but i've found something else: 3GB 660Ti ?

Been out, so the 2GB vram limit being an issue isn't exactly true but the 192-bit bus is.

but still a 660Ti 3GB SLI on a 1440p monitor might be a nice setup no?


but non of these can stand against the best 670 out there: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

GTX 660 Ti is incapable of pushing out 3GB of VRAM, making that a waste and is actually a few frames slower than the 2GB models..

The new memory management is in 13.2/13.3 iirc, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are doing that and not saying yet.

Not this late in the game, most likely HD8k would have nearly been set in stone to the point where they can't really change it without massive delays not long after HD7k launched as per usual for GPUs, then again they did a change like that with HD5k so they may try to do it with minimal delay again.

Even when proof stares them right in the face we have people here who deny it.

Just like someone else stated, [H] Hardocp has mentioned before about the AMD cards not feeling as smooth as Nvidia. Does it break the game? Certainly not.

But now they have the tools to say why it doesn't feel as smooth.

The fact of the matter is this. All this negative publicity is doing one thing, giving the consumer a better product to buy because AMD is fixing it. That and only that is what counts in the end.

I can't speak for everyone, but most of us who are sceptical about how much difference it actually makes are saying that it is verifiable and true, but that a large minority (At the very least) can't actually tell the difference.

nVidia also was pretty bad for a while, look at those GTX 570 results! nVidia stepped up their game while AMD was left behind with it here.

IMO, he should leave it to unboxings. He's good at that, and it provides a great early look at products which is something you can be sorely lacking at times.

No they're not, you can increase the density of the chips on a GPU (increasing vRAM size, so a 3GB GK104 is possible in a way like a previous nVidia chip that had 4 1Gbit chips and 2 2Gbit chips) without changing the bandwidth assuming equal clocks.

The GPU itself is fast enough to do so, but you'd have two larger memory chips which means memory bandwidth would drop like a rock after you fill up the first 2GB, that's why most GK104s are 2GB or 4GB.

Erm, no they're not?

Memory bandwidth is calculated by the bus width and speed and has nothing to do with the amount available.
