this problem is age old as the original MOLEX connector. the connectors inside that plastic shielding often float, and are not necessarily inline with each other even if simply held in your hand and yet to be connected. remember connecting old CDRoms, old Floppy 5.25 drives, or of course original Case Fans, at times even daisy chaining these atrocious space cluttering connections together, you can glance and see some pins with lesser coupling contact than other pins, all within the same molex connector. but no one realises this anymore today, it's all plug and pray, right? now with these behemoth GPUs requiring a stretching of said molex or PSU lane wires, to barely fit at a cases' end and pivoting it to kingdom come, what could go wrong? let a professional who understands connecting these together at a certified authorized computer store build if for you, peace of mind. some professionals I know aren't even touching this generation of cards at all. and here we thought PSU makers together with Nvidia were going to have a new connector solution with so called PCI5 or ATX 3.0 , it's just as bad for crying out loud. do away with floating molex wires, and get back to the drawing board, or best yet, these fugly graphic cards should REALLY have an EXTERNAL power supply to attach as a console does. and include a powerbar to filter line noise.

slightly OT, but if you wired an AT (yes, pre ATX) powersupply incorrectly, your electrical panel would fly out of the room.

This looks absolutely immersive, I hope next car simulators take note on sensation of speed, coupled with photorealism. this is how it is done.

I believe I'll be buying my first ever XBox for the sole purpose to play this game. I'd rather invest the saved money into getting a flightstick/rudder set and an OLED TV , over shoveling anymore inflationary money to nvidia.

This is as age old as the humble beginnings of the Molex connector. remember the AT power supplies, with the 'floaty' wires in each plastic end? now where did that color one go? maybe it wasn't important: (lan party house: low power)

Heck, Chinese crypto miners will probably sell their GPUs to Russians for a premium.

This is actually a fantastic idea that can ignite the stagnant economy in North America today.

I think EA needs to get with the times and rename their game to

Need for Charging Stations and where the hell is my steering wheel?

Literally everything you said there is wrong. Every single phrase and sentence.

I will take that as a compliment. We all know how social media works in tandem with the truth.

Ethereum just went proof-of-stake. Expect used GPU prices to fall even further.
The hoarders of these older GPU's, should really dismantle their farms, and build up nodes around each GPU. one mans junk will be another man's treasure, will ring true with this one during the course of the 4000 series deployment. this is what nvidias' greasy coat-tailing partners want anyhow. it's all planned because we know fool me quad, shame on my head in the sand from thrice ago might not work this time around. Cryptomining creating inflation around the world but noone talks about this right?, worlds greatest scam in the electronic age bar none.

If I may add, You get fatter by taking the Apple Car sporting Apple earbuds, than using an ebike.

most popular ebike conversion kits (i.e mid motor mount, see bafang) are that of hybrid, meaning it is not electric or nothing. your front crank still works from your pedaling should you choose to at anytime, and rightfully so. a godend against the dreaded moments of headwind where it affects most cyclists for those two blocks taking 3 minutes, that could otherwise be done in 30 seconds.

We need to return earth to the animal kingdom. Humans tried to learn from them overtime, but something went horribly wrong, we have no business being here anylonger.

I would absolutely bask at the sight of apes tossing datacenter and mining rig parts at each other, with heads of controlling trillionaires at attempt for AI takeover, on stakes nearby.

you probably need more help than any internet echo chamber can provide in the first place.

I believe it is high time we retire the phrase internet echo chamber, and replace it with internet Bot social score chaperones.

Could have sworn it was since '79 or '80..
'82, really? but yes, the A2600 pacman vs. Arcade pacman, made not the kids playing vomit, rather it made my mom watching vomit instead. but I had the same effect playing corridor games later when Doom/Quake/Tombraider1 was in their infancy.

A2600 memories: RiverRaid , Kaboom , Berzerk , and Miner2049er , and that neighbor on Saturday mornings, still playing Pitfall from nights before to insane highsore and levels.

when ColecoVision came along soon in '82 or '83 was it? (it's why I thought Atari was way earlier!)
it was much better, but then NES and Commodore Amiga immortalized gaming to legendary pioneer status.

Entering the metaverse is not without its costs.

6 times MSRP
6 times the demand of former 3000 series
6 times the profit margins back to Nvidia and everyone inbetween
