Back when XFX made Nvidia cards too their "great warranty" wasn't honored when both of my 7900GT burnt themselves up. I was super salty after that. No overclocking or anything they just cut out one day in the middle of gaming.

is there an advantage for using the full size DP over mini?

Full size locks in, I think that's it.

i dont know if that is a real advantage. seems more like a disadvantage to me, if the cord is pulled it could create damage to the card/port. I am assuming full size DP is cheaper to produce.

Agreed, locking in is definitely a disadvantage.

I mean who is moving their monitors or towers with the cables needing to stay plugged in? I'd prefer an accidental tug on the cord unplug it instead of possibly toppling over my monitor.

Active HDMI to DVI is cheap. Buy 5 just in case some of them breaks.

How can you need an active adapter when HDMI and DVI are the same signal?

I think if anything, it's suggestive of the market for this card. AMD wasn't thinking of us liquid-cooled, custom keycap, 165Hz OCN'ers but rather the mainstream where pre-built desktops are common. Don't have that PCI-E power connector on your Dell Dimension? No problem because odds are you have a molex. AMD has stated that they not only mean to target the mainstream crowd but to grow it.

I think AMD is on to something here. Nvidia seems to be struggling with their Pascal launch; putting newcomers in a tricky situation where they don't know whether to buy the old tech because it's actually available or hope the new tech inventory stabilizes at some point. If AMD can get these $200 honeys on the shelves when they mean to I think they're going to be in a good position to make some money.

Others must be thinking this way too because AMD stock is getting hot. It's well on its way to doubling the mid-April price.

My 7870s did. Weird since they were dual-6. tongue.gif
1) Royalty fees for every connector used by anyone = added cost, no matter how small.

2) It looses to DP in every conceivable way.
That.
It has an HDMI port, they'll get over it.
Get a DVI/HDMI cable Plug it into the HDMI jack, duh. Did it for my Overlord, it'll work for you too.

But what was that about knowing things?

Thats a lot of quotes must have taken you a while haha. My 7850 i think is the last card that came with pcie adapter. Maybe i can use em for a sound card lol.

Right-click quote, open in new tab, type response

Repeat per quote.

Copy paste.

Do sound cards have non-board power requirements? I know my ZxR doesn't, and it has enough juice on the headphone amp to kill me.

It has a clip and the connector is sturdier. My experiences with mDP are that it's an even weaker connector than HDMI.

Nooo, it's a 10" card frown.gif. Here's to hoping for a more compact aftermarket cooler.
