Nvidia, Making Sure We Don't Have Nice Things Video of the Day



In some cases the 4060 Ti actually manages to lose to the 3060 Ti, which is impressive just not in the way Nvidia would like.

1 The settings panel in windows isn't broken, it's just different.

3 So, instead of eating their own dog food they're eating...their own regurgitated dog food?

4 The Beelink GTR7 is still not for sale, still holding the placeolder $1999 and $2599 prices.  About once a week they push back the day they'll tell us the actual price by about a week.  Currently they're saying "on or around the 29th".
If it weren't for the effort it would take to sell off older computers I'd be very, very tempted to get one of these (or a Minisforum, etc).

5 No, wait!  Between last night and just now, they've updated them:  $750 for the 7840HS and $850 for the 7940HS, with 32GBs and 1TB.  Those sound like decent prices, although I bet the SSD is QLC.
I forget if I mentioned this, but before the last Diablo IV Server Slam I copied the files from my gaming PC to my mini PC, which uses a P3+ QLC SSD, and found out said SSD is perfectly cromulent for everyday usage, but falls flat on its face when faced with large sequential writes:  after just a few seconds of 100MB+/s transfer it drops to a sustained 50MB/s and 100% utilization for however long it takes (which, when copying 77GB in mostly 1GB files is a long time.)

6 Yeah, that's where QLC drives still bite you, and it's why I bought the TLC Team MP34 even though its peak transfer rates are slower than the P3+.

7 I didn't know it was a QLC drive, because typically the brand isn't listed, but I should've suspected, I guess.
Peak transfer speeds don't mean much when they only last 5 seconds.  (Which is funny, too, because I read a few reviews of the drive and Tom's Hardware says the pSLC cache lasts a lot longer than my experience.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
