Well, I have a 220-240V / 32 amp electrical system at my home, but I still won't ever buy a GPU that eats more than 300W (and even at 300W, there are probably transient spikes that reach 500W or more).
600W GPUs?! That's insane! Right as I'm typing this, the air conditioner that keeps my room nice and cool at 21 degrees C (even though there are 33 degrees C outside) is drawing 825W, as shown at the wall by the power meter. There's no way that I will ever have a GPU that comes close to an air conditioner... not even if they give it to me for free! 🤣
Well nvidia the garbage company can go fuck themselves, intel too.. Since AMD released ZEN II and RDNA II they did become the better brand, meanwhile both intel and nvidia releases HOT and expensive piece of shits... No need even to bring things like the many dead RTX 2080/TI and the multiple problems on RTX 3090s....
These days full modern AM4/ AM5 system with Radeon card makes the only sense, every idiot outhere that talk how important the shitty RT and DLSS is, dont know what he is talking about, + AMD got FSR 2.0 that is 95% the same as DLSS 2.0... Not to mention a customer need to be in order to buy nvidia or intel:
2. someone that dont know anything about computers
3. someone that was lied from a salesman or a forum fanboys
Radeon 6800XT for example makes tons of sense compared to RTX 3080 that is more hot and have less vRAM, 3080TI, 3090 are even dumber cards, and 3090TI is no comment hot garbage.. 6900XT also sucks and 6950XT.. (too bad these fuckers did not release 6850XT...)
No one need to buy these hot and expensive not power efficient intel/ nvidia garbage, or the AMD ones that make no sense like 6900XT. As the cost of living these days, food, bills everything gets more and more expensive, it is straight dumb.. But there are some bitcoin fucker millionaires or the ones that are at least somehow rich from bitcoin or other stuff they dont care much how much they will spend on high end computer system or anything else, like shitty Iphones... But i think we need to stack food, as in the comming years i bet there may be even not enough supply of food, and that will be the real problem.. As i think the things with Ukraine and the war there and everything else in that shitty world will first become MUCH worse, before getting any better......
