See there is one difference, mechanically, that you will see in a server/workstation card that you won't see on the desktop. Sometimes things are over volted for maximum stability. I mean yeah, he is using stuff like Firestrike and games to check stability but trust me, if that card is folding or mining it's a different story. IE - when 100% of that GPU is being drawn upon then it would likely flop with lower volts. Noise and heat in server land is not an issue. Firstly you are not in the room with it and secondly most are AC. So ambient temps are a lot lower.

They should have tried some of the stuff this card was actually made for tbh. Though having said that if AMD can reduce the current draw (because let's face it ATM it's insane !) then maybe the desktop card will hold 1600mhz solid.

Korreborg.

The problem with the Quick News thread is not that we need a Vega discussion thread. The problem is we need a thread to either discuss quick news, or, we just stick to this one. It's not always Vega we argue, I mean talk about. It's the news coming in.

As I said recently, forums in general these days are not exactly on fire. Most have taken to Facebook or just plain can't even be bothered. So it's not like this thread has become overwhelmed by it.

I've seen this posted so many times from all over the world and it makes no sense to me.

"I want AMD to make better cards so I can buy Nvidia cards for cheaper."

Is it not clear how self-defeating that is? If everyone were to say that, and many are, no one would buy AMD GPU's. AMD would then not be able to remain competitive because they would either have no revenue or no market. In turn Nvidia cards would become less consumer-driven. You have to directly support AMD's Radeon sector if you want competition in the market. You can't just want AMD to succeed, you have to help them succeed. If all you can do is patiently wait for the actual RX Vega GPU to be released and fairly judging it then—instead of preemptively saying, "I didn't expect much at all; in fact I precisely expected what it is and it left me unimpressed"—then that's great. Many are tied to GSync so I'm not expecting them to buy Vega. But at least being patient and waiting for final assessment would help AMD remain competitive as it would encourage positive reinforcement and anticipation.

Not sure if I am happy about that... I don't like em much anyway, but they have done a lot for the industry.

If a company like Corsair can be bought out, Inevitably milked to death and then die a horrible death, It can and will happen to any company.

That is the case with any company in the world excluding a select few. It's nothing new tbh.

They will sell if the price is right. The guys selling the company get nearly all the money anyway, that's all people care about.

Corsair has been partially owned by a different investment firm since 2013, after the company ditched its IPO attempt (to enter the stock market)

Back then Francisco Partners Management LLC made a $75 million investment.

We also have a thread on this matter, so a full discussion is better placed there.

That answers my question Mark and yes, lines up 100% when I first bought my Corsair junk mice. I got one for me and one for my lady. Mine broke after a week (scroll wheel went) and hers died after about a month (wires came out of the USB plug and snapped through).
