Manufacturers response on NVIDIA RTX 3080 issues during gaming - tech
(d@rkfu) 08:14 PM CEST - Sep,26 2020 - Post a comment / read (1)
In the past few days there have been reports of several crashes/CTDs, and random black screen issues while Gaming, with factory-overclocked custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards. The issues were reported on several tech forums and also social media platforms. Users have been experiencing severe crashes during Gaming sessions. According to posts made on various Forums, the card seems to crash to the desktop while gaming, which is commonly referred to as CTD. Some users have also reported black screen issues as well, where the GPU driver simply bugs out. Many users claimed that the crash occurs when the GPU tries to exceed a boost clock value of 2.0 GHz. The problem was widespread. On September 25th igor’s LAB published the first analysis of the problem, suggesting that the capacitors/CAPs used in the GPU are the main culprit. The capacitors can be seen at the back of the GPU, since most of these cards don’t have a backplate. The reference board PG132 design was used as base design by AIB partners to architecture their custom cards. But the issue here is that apparently NVIDIA’s BOM/ bill of materials left an open choice in terms of power cleanup and regulation in the mounted capacitors. The Base Design actually features six mandatory capacitors for filtering high frequencies on the GPU voltage rails, NVVDD and MSVDD. There are a number of choices for capacitors to be installed here, with varying levels of capability. The better the filtering the less likely the GPU is to encounter any crash or instability issue at high GPU clock frequencies, including factory-overclocking. The point that Igor makes about improper power design causing instability is a very plausible one. Especially with first production runs where it indeed could be the case that they did not have the time/equipment/driver etc to do proper design verification.

An electrical engineer who specializes in PCB design @Mirrormaster85 has posted more info on these capacitors. At this time, NVIDIA has not responded back. But the chaps over at DSOGaming have some statements from some AIBs.

The manufacturer was the first to report on a issue unofficially to the press. Review samples that were already sent out, were later recalled.


“Recently there has been some discussion about the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 series.

During our mass production QC testing we discovered a full 6 POSCAPs solution cannot pass the real world applications testing. It took almost a week of R&D effort to find the cause and reduce the POSCAPs to 4 and add 20 MLCC caps prior to shipping production boards, this is why the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 series was delayed at launch. There were no 6 POSCAP production EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 boards shipped.

But, due to the time crunch, some of the reviewers were sent a pre-production version with 6 POSCAP’s, we are working with those reviewers directly to replace their boards with production versions.

EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 XC3 series with 5 POSCAPs + 10 MLCC solution is matched with the XC3 spec without issues. Also note that we have updated the product pictures at to reflect the production components that shipped to gamers and enthusiasts since day 1 of product launch. Once you receive the card you can compare for yourself, EVGA stands behind its products! — Jacob Freeman, EVGA Forums.”


ASUS has changed the design in pre-production. No official statement was made.


MSI acknowledged the issue during the MSI Insider Livestream, suggested it could be a driver issue.


Igor’sLAB reports that PC Partner, Zotac’s mother company, seems to have recognized this and is obviously changing its cards.

GIGABYTE, GALAX and other brands:

No official statement, at this time of writing. Check back again for any updates.

Personally, I suspect that any major revisions will not make it to mainstream until November/December, or even not until after the new year, since all the early batches (including the "more incoming stock" being promised) were produced according to the original, finalized setup that's currently in the wild, and it'll take a bit of time to sort out the issues and get that change passed in the manufacturing process. And we're still dealing with a human virus that's still hampering the world's recovery.

Windows XP source code allegedly leaked online - tech
(hx) 11:36 PM CEST - Sep,25 2020 - Post a comment / read (2)
Source code of several older Windows versions, including Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000, have been leaked online by a hacker on the 4Chan platform in the form of a torrent file. The entire torrent file containing the source code is 43GB in size, and the person behind the alleged leak has been collecting and compiling leaked Microsoft source codes for the past two months. For the uninitiated, source code is a set of human-readable instructions of a program before it is compiled. This pre-compiled version is often written in a text editor and then fed into a compiler to turn it into machine language. Most big tech companies safeguard their source codes by filing proprietary rights to them. Users on 4Chan posted screenshots of the allegedly leaked source code of Windows XP and the iconic Bliss Background of the Windows operating system. In addition to the 43GB file, a file with 7zip extension containing the source code of Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 has spread on the internet by 4Chan users and Redditors and is now available as a torrent file on several platforms. Microsoft has yet to confirm whether the leaked data is legitimate. But if you're interested in the subject, combing through the files may be interesting, as this is a newer version of Windows than what we've seen leaked in the past.

RTX 3080 Users Report Crashes to Desktop While Gaming - tech
(hx) 08:07 AM CEST - Sep,25 2020 - Post a comment / read (3)
A number of RTX 3080 users have been reporting crashes to desktop while gaming on their newly-acquired Ampere graphics cards. The reports have surged in numerous hardware discussion venues (LinusTechTips, NVIDIA, THG's forum), and appear to be unlinked to any particular RTX 3080 vendor (ZOTAC, MSI, EVGA, and NVIDIA Founders Edition graphics cards are all mentioned).

Apparently, this crash to desktop happens once the RTX 3080's Boost clock exceeds 2.0 GHz. A number of causes could be advanced for these issues: deficient power delivery, GPU temperature failsafes, or even a simple driver-level problem (though that one seems to be the least likely). Nor NVIDIA nor any of its AIB partners have spoken about this issue, and review outlets failed to mention this happening - likely because it never did, at least on samples sent to reviewers. For now, it seems that manually downclocking the graphics card by 50-100 MHz could be a temporary fix for the issue while it's being troubleshooted. An unlucky turn of events for users of NVIDIA's latest and greatest, but surely it's better to face a very slight performance decrease in exchange for system stability.

GeForce RTX 3090 is only 10-15% faster than the RTX 3080 - tech
(hx) 05:22 PM CEST - Sep,24 2020 - Post a comment / read (5)
NVIDIA has just published a new blog post detailing the performance of the upcoming flagship RTX 3090 GPU, which Nvidia refers to as the ‘BFGPU’, aka big, ferocious GPU. Some official performance metrics have been posted. According to the green team, the GeForce RTX 3090 flagship GPU is only 10-15% faster than the RTX 3080 in 4K gaming. Nvidia claims the card is designed specifically for gaming at ultra-high resolutions such as 8K, and it is also the fastest GPU for professional applications. What this means is that the RTX 3090 is basically a prosumer-class product.
For gamers pushing the limits, the GeForce RTX 3090 is also the first GPU that lets you connect, play, capture, and watch in 8K HDR. That’s an insane 4x the pixels of 4K and 16x the pixels of 1080p.

For 4K gaming, the GeForce RTX 3090 is about 10-15% faster on average than the GeForce RTX 3080, and up to 50% faster than the TITAN RTX.

Since we built GeForce RTX 3090 for a unique group of users, like the TITAN RTX before it, we want to apologise upfront that this will be in limited supply on launch day. We know this is frustrating, and we’re working with our partners to increase the supply in the weeks to come.
Since Nvidia is now advertising the RTX 3090 flagship TITAN-class graphics card for productivity, while at the same time promoting it for 8K gaming as well, so this may raise some slightly controversy within board partners, reviewers, and gamers alike. Like mentioned before, the RTX 3090 is only 10 to 15% faster in 4K gaming, when comparing it with the RTX 3080 GPU. But the performance of the card appears to be much better in synthetic and productivity workloads. According to Nvidia, the RTX 3090 is up to 50% faster than the Titan RTX graphics card. Nvidia has also shared a chart which shows the GeForce RTX 3090 to be twice as fast as the Titan RTX in professional applications such as Luxmark, Blender, V-ray, and Red Shift,

Baldur's Gate III Early Access delayed - briefly
(hx) 06:44 PM CEST - Sep,23 2020 - Post a comment / read (1)
Larian Studios has delayed the Early Access launch of Baldur’s Gate III from its previously planned September 30 release date by one week to October 6. It will be available for PC via Steam and GOG, and Stadia.

It’s the year 2020! We’re launching an active development build, which means that things can go right, or they can go wrong each time we compile a new one. Live development different to “going gold” in that you never really have a “gold version.”

Our guiding principle for early access is that it’s fine for there to be smaller bugs or a few things that are lacking polish, but it needs to offer a fun gameplay experience with as few crashes as possible.

We’re nearly there but we had a few unexpected delays, and we still have some stability issues we’re sifting through. Because of the delays, our translations are also later than expected and we want to ensure localization for the announced Early Access languages is strong enough for our international fans to have a good time.

Thankfully, a week’s delay (to October 6) is all we expect to need to triple check stability, and triple check localization.

We say “expect” because the game still has to pass the “World Tester.” The World Tester is a sort of AI super-gamer that plays through the game at incredible speed, stress testing everything and pushing it to its limits. This super-gamer is currently playing through, and the results are looking good but not perfect yet. We know that if the super-gamer doesn’t break the game, there’s less chance you will. Not that we have any illusions you won’t try!

As a result of all the testing that’s been going on, we do now have our PC minimum requirements for day 1, and you can check those on the store pages.

Early Access is going to launch on October 6th on Stadia, Steam, and GOG. It is. It really is.

With love from Larian.

Update 3.0, Origins, dramatically expands the universe of No Man’s Sky. Explore a stranger, richer and more varied universe, with deeper planetary diversity, dramatic new terrain, a host of new creatures, new weather conditions, colossal buildings, and much more.

  • Increased Color Variety – The palette of colors for planetary generation has been increased, creating more possible variations than ever before.
  • Improved Teleporters – The teleporter interface has been improved. The UI is now consistent with the Space Anomaly teleporter, and now offers more information available about the target planet or system prior to warp.
  • Photo Mode – Photo mode has been revamped, with new filters and increased control over clouds, fog, vignettes and depth of field.
  • Colossal Archive Buildings – Enormous buildings have risen on planetary horizons, creating new hubs of alien life. These huge vaults are repositories of data, treasure, and directions to long-forgotten ruins.
  • Historical Stories – Visit the colossal archive buildings to uncover new cultural and literary histories, hidden away by ancient alien civilizations.
  • Infestations – A number of planets have become infested with anomalous lifeforms and vegetative growths. Take extreme caution while exploring such planets.
  • New Lighting Conditions – The range of atmospheric illumination has been broadened, generating more unique combinations of lighting conditions on planets.
  • Anomalous Buildings – Abandoned and ancient settlements can be discovered on dead or anomalous planets, increasing the range of planets available for missions and exploration.
  • Volcanoes – Tectonic disruption has stimulated the molten cores of some planets, giving rise to active volcanic mountains.
  • Firestorms – Storms on extreme temperature worlds now sometimes ignite fire on the planet’s surface.
  • Storm Gameplay Effects – Advancements in Exosuit and Multi-Tool technology enable beneficial effects from storms. Blizzards allow you to mine for longer with a cooled Mining Beam; sprint further in toxic storms with assistance from Exosuit gas processing technology; benefit from increased jetpack efficiency in superheated atmospheres; and mine additional substances during times of high radioactivity.
  • New Items and Crafting – Crafting has been streamlined, with a number of rarely-used items trimmed to reduce inventory clutter. Other frequently used items have had their inventory stack size increased. New caches of resources may now be found underground, ready to dismantle into usable parts.
  • Enhanced Terrain Detail – Explore more visually pleasing landscapes with enhanced terrain rendering. Noise normal, height and specular maps are now used, and blending between geometry normals and tile normals has been improved, contributing to more detailed terrain—especially at long distances.
  • Enhanced Planet Quality Settings – On PC, the “Ultra” setting for Planet Quality has been upgraded, improving the appearance and detail of grass and flora at a distance.
  • Exploration Guide – The Mission Log now features a Local Information Register, providing detailed information about the current system or planet. The log also assists explorers to track down the full range of fauna, flora and minerals to discover on each planet.
  • Portal Interference Lifted – Travelers may now slip through portals and explore their destination freely, with no portal interference. An infinite universe has become more accessible.
  • Meteors – Meteoroids can be observed crashing through the atmosphere of planets. Witness brilliant meteor showers, or lone shooting stars streaking across the sky – but be careful not to get too close.
  • Gravitational Anomalies – Anomalous planets can exhibit sudden gravitational shifts, allowing dramatic flights through a low-gravity environment.
  • Tornadoes – Powerful tornadoes now spiral across planets during the strongest storms, scooping up any unfortunate fauna or explorers who cross their path.
  • Lightning – Storms now split the sky with powerful bolts of lightning. Enjoy the spectacle, but avoid getting struck!
  • Planetary NPC Encounters – Black market traders, piloting their ships across planets, will now sometimes land on the planetary surface. Explorers can approach these dealers to browse their selection of contraband technology upgrades. The space station scrap dealer will now exchange pugneum for their own selection of black market goods.
  • Discovery Menu Improvements – The Discovery Page now offers tools to filter, sort and hide visited systems. Other improvements include more detailed information to help locate planetary creatures, and more easily accessible information about your planetary bases.
  • Multi-Tool Upgrades – Visit the Multi-Tool Upgrade Station on Space Stations to upgrade the class of your Multi-Tool, or expand its technology capacity by adding more slots.
  • Insect Life – Discover giant beetles scuttling across planets and buzzing through the skies, as well as huge, soft-winged butterflies fluttering to land on flora and terrain.
  • Wild Robots – Rare uncharted planets are now home to synthetic creatures, wandering wild across terrain on metallic legs.
  • Improved Creature Behaviors – In addition to the new burrowing, rolling, and flying creatures, flocking behaviours for all fauna have been improved. Herd sizes have increased, and flying creatures can now be seen much closer to the ground.
  • Sandworms – Devastatingly huge worm creatures now lurk beneath the planet’s surface. Tread carefully.
