No wonder Sapphire takes the crown. Other manufacturers did the same but with less intensity, but Sapphire's entire GCN/7xxx series line-up was insane. They were juggling specs/hardware parts/cooling from the get go, and it got worse after the release of the Boost/Ghz versions. Add to that an abysmal Tech Support, Trixx not being able to handle GPU overvoltage for a lot of time, locked voltages, etc etc. Ah, they screwed big time with VRM cooling on the big ones(7959/7970), which led to temps in excess of 100º after a bit of OC kookoo.gif

I got lucky(well, sorta, I did a lot of research after the best known SKUs) with my Vapor X 7950...1250 core/1700(Hynix) mem max OC on air...and an improved and chilly VRM section cooling, but I feel bad for all of those who got one of Sapphire's brainfarts in hardware shape...

It was the hunt for the Legendary Graphics Card, man... biggrin.gif

Ahhh, this will surely bring memories and laughs to those who were around the AMD forums...it's 6+6, 6+8 or 8+8?Hynix or Elpida? What color is the PCB? It has blue caps or the red/pink ones? lachen.gif

Nah but it's all part of Europe all the same.

But here on the continent we use commas in places that Americans and the UK us decimal point

it's 1,3% and 1.000,00

Exactly like this fellow said.
A million = 1.000.000
A euro and twenty cents = 1,20€

Excel defaults 1,000 to 1.
There are a big number of things that each country probably does differently. Time and dates comes to mind for example.

How can you be bothered to use thousand unit separators? Time is precious biggrin.gif

Some European countries use a comma instead of a full stop for decimals is what he meant. (eg. 100.5 becomes 100,5)

I believe Germany is one of them, among others.

Interesting contrast on HDD failure rates compared to BackBlaze's report

 

Not surprising at all. Check previous years results, Seagate commonly has the lowest/lower rma rates

I still run a Sapphire X1950XTX from 2006; it is a killer in Half-life 2 even to this day. smile.gif


I should add that I prefer my iChiLL GTX 780 on the i7 Haswell.
