  1. I'm sorry but I don't understand your suggestion.
  2. M.2 drives are much faster than conventional SSDs. It's really worth to upgrade at least for the operating system partition.
  3. Some AMD GPUs are shown with more memory if they are used together with AMD CPUs (in dual graphics mode). But since you mentioned Intel HD graphics, then it's probably based on AMD GPU and Intel CPU. In that case, it's a 2GB card. You can also check the reading with GPU-Z.
  4. That's a great price for 390. Been using 390X for a year and it delivered great framerate for my 1440p monitor, so I imagine for 1080p this is more than enough for now.
  5. I don't, but you have to look at this from 700 series perspective. First we had TITAN, then GTX 780 and then GTX 780 Ti. Now we have TITAN, but no 2080 and 2080 Ti yet. I guess we will find out what NVIDIA is planning in the next few months. I would make more sense to launch 20 series with 2080, 2070 (as GTX 1080 refresh) etc, rather than drag 10 series for two years till Volta is available.
  6. I think 1080 Ti pricing will depend mostly on Vega, or more likely how fast is Vega. The longer it takes for 1080 ti to arrive, the more likely it will launch as GTX 2080, because NVIDIA has no plans to release Volta this year. But it's really hard to say right now as there are zero performance leaks of 1080 Ti. But generally speaking, I think most enthusiast of high-end GPUs should always wait for tick-tock launches (big dies, fully unlocked chips etc). So yeah I'm really looking forward to hearing about 1080 Ti, and testing one when they become available.
  7. Good card, how are the temps?
  8. You should use Display Driver Uninstaller and clean your system from older drivers. Then download the latest driver for notebooks and try to install it again. If that doesn't help, then 940MX in MI Air may have a different Device ID, therefore it's not being detected. Try using driver from XIAOMI http://cdn.fds.api.xiaomi.com/b2c-webfile/service/download/r13/VGA_nVidia_v10.18.13.5954.zip http://en.miui.com/thread-318018-1-1.html
  9. Hi thanks for submitting your finding. This model has VR Link, with two additional HDMI ports on the back Real photo
  10. At the time when I was testing 1060 3GB I was playing on 1440p monitor, just like you, and 1060 3GB was simply not enough to handle higher resolution textures. I would recommend getting 6GB version, but since you've already bought one, then I guess you have no choice now
  11. Well in that case, 1060 is better 1060 6GB is more than enough for 1440p medium/high settings in most games, at least I had no performance issues myself. Next year you can start thinking about triple 1440p or 21:9 gaming and of course new GPUs
  12. If you still have 980 TI SLI as you said, then I would find it strange to upgrade from 980 ti SLI to 1060.. Just wait for pascal refresh (the 1080Ti) and spend your money on something that is worth the penny.
  13. Where did you get this date from? No one knows when it launches exactly. One could guess we get a preview later this year, maybe a paper launch of some sort, but nothing concrete I'm afraid.
  14. Of course. Architectural launches are always very interesting, but we all know how NVIDIA is launching their cards (arc & arc refresh). GTX 1080 is an awesome card, but everyone knows they are preparing GTX 1080 Ti or GTX 2080 at this point. Even GP102 is no secret anymore. I think there are three possibilities: NVIDIA launches GTX 1080 Ti first NVIDIA will wait for Vega to adjust price and performance of 1080 Ti NVIDIA will wait few months after Vega to launch GTX 2080 GP102 and GP104 refresh. Basically if 1080 Ti comes first, then I'm certain Vega is slower than 1080 Ti, why? Because NVIDIA has no reason to launch anything affordable based on GP102 right now. GTX 1080 sales are doing great and there's no competition from AMD.
  15. Glad you found your card, that's a good choice, but I'm surprised to hear it has a coil whine. I would expect better quality from the most expensive MSI series... I've been using 1060 6GB for about a month, and I can honestly say it's more than enough for 1080p gaming (I wouldn't say the same thing about 3GB model though).
