    Consumer graphics for both companies has become an after thought and Intel is not yet there.
    How are they flops at least here the 7900 XT is cheaper than the 4070ti, of course it's faster even in RT performance has enough Vram and the only thing is that here in germany where we have to pay money for power consumption not like basically free like in the US you have to limit the desktop to 60hz otherwise it draws to much power, otherwise it's just the better card in every single way than the 4070ti and cheaper.

    hardware and price offered are......................................



    However at least this card inspire me trust only see it (thanks colorfull for your rtx 4060 design)



    because in your logo she said to you GAME OVER nothing more real for rtx 4060‚Äč

    For most new gaming, more vram is a must.

    Just look at RE4 Remake which eats ram for lunch, a slower card with more ram will perform better than a card with better specs but less ram. In fact, in some cases the game won't even run on the faster card unless you turn down the settings.

    In fact. i would argue that the best card for gaming, and video editing, at the moment is the cheapest Intel Arc, the 380 with the 6gb ram. for just $140.

    NVIDIA today announced the GeForce RTX 4060 series consisting of the $399 RTX 4060 Ti 8GB while in July an RTX 4060 Ti 16GB version will come along with a $299 RTX 4060.
    I'm reminded of Rick and Morty where Rick goes to the Citadel of Ricks and there's 2 Morty's working as prostitutes and one of them says "One Morty for $10, two for $25" and Rick responds with "Eww, and bad math".

    Seriously, this article needs fixing.

    There's no other forum, social network or place on WWW where I've seen and received so much naked hostility and aggression. 4chan is simply a warm calm welcoming place after Phoronix forums. I'm sad the ignore list doesn't work here but Michael seems not care. But he sure damn cares when someone speaks the truth and he's so eager and ready to ban people for that.
    And despite all this you keep coming back to this horrible forum where everyone except the honorable birdie is always wrong and just an angry, unreasonable linux fan just to defend your beloved green company and inform people about how Linux sucks. I guess you just like being called out or insulted but who am I to judge? on 4chan you'd probably just get called a shill or a certain word starting with the letter r and not get all the delicious attention like on here so you are stuck with us angry linux fans I'm afraid, my entertaining fellow.

    Ouch. I was thinking intel needs to save us faster. Never thought I'd hear that from myself.

    We start seeing significant hitching in 1440p on 8GB using RT and what does Nvidia do? Tells people to just play at 1080p and upscale with DLSS. Which would be fine if we were talking about cards priced at $300 or less, but a $400 card in 2023 should not come with 8 GB of memory. Another $100 for some more memory? Talk about pissing on people and telling them its raining.

    Mind you, I'm saying this whose five cards have gone: GTX 670 -> GTX 970 -> GTX 1070 Ti -> RTX 3090
    Thing is I think DLSS does take a bit more VRAM, so you'd be starting from even lower quality pre-upscale.

    This is a kernel module on top of which a 'freely-licenced driver' may sit -- the latter does not exist (at least not from nvidia)

    Compare with:
    * amdgpu (the kernel module)
    * radeonsi
    * radv
    * amdvlk
    NVIDIA doesn't prevent anyone from writing user space libraries for their open kernel modules. In fact the NVK project has been exactly that.

    The "problem" with NVIDIA is that their driver and user space are near perfect despite all the screams to the contrary here. Yeah, their are regressions, missing features here and there but NVIDIA is a commercial company which serves its commercial customers who primarily use Windows.

    AMD has a ton of open source here and there but from what I've heard in terms of quality it's nowhere near to what NVIDIA offers.

    In short, if you love the idea of open source, great, Intel and AMD will happily serve you.
    If you love the idea of having a top notch driver and features, well, NVIDIA is there for you.

    Blaming NVIDIA for not releasing a complete open source stack for an obscure OS which has zero customers on the desktop is kinda irrational IMO. Yes, I'm not joking. Show me Linux users who actually buy software and services (aside from rare Hollywood studios using NVIDIA cards for Optix/rendering).

    At the same time NVIDIA sells literally tens of thousands H100 accelerators (priced from $15K) which primarily run headless distributed CUDA workflows. Tell me again why they need to "properly" support Linux with almost no commercial CUDA software and wildly unstable APIs.

    Linux fans' "We want open source" is not something NVIDIA is interested in. They are in the business of making money.

    And I was thinking Nvidia was the only remaining vendor who doesn't cheap out on PCI lanes and provides full PCI x16 on budget and mainstream cards.. looks like I was wrong. It's really infuriating because people like me who still have pci-e 3.0 motherboards will have degraded performance with PCI x8 compared to full PCI x16.
    Broooo, so true. I have fam waiting for me to get them a gpu too. 6600 xt was almost the thing, but that x8 really ruined it for a lot of systems.

    EDIT: Some of us indeed will not spend more than $300 for this, but there's no reason why we shouldn't be offered a WHOLE, though lower-spec, graphics card for our tier. We are not actually a small market at all. This new nvidia card looks like a shameless tier shift (and man the shills love to gaslight consumers) and an upsell scheme (16gb for $100 more). The GPU MFGs seem to no longer care at all about sensible/responsible people. And inb4 "APU" ..I already have very capable CPUs in plenty capable systems, but GPU is the bottleneck for most things.

    From the github page: "Note that the kernel modules built here must be used with GSP firmware and user-space NVIDIA GPU driver components from a corresponding 530.41.03 driver release." I may be wrong, but that's not very free-licensed sounding.
