I rescind all earlier statements and accept Palit as a superior brand and manufacturer in every respect.

My GeForce 4 was a pny

That's all I got

E: this may be a dumb question but have any of you tried the GPU warranty + CC warranty to get an old rear end GPU replaced somehow ?

E: hey wow palit looks like a brand I can trust, as an American that will never own one

Only input I really have on Palit is the Gamerock 1080 cooler and fans are a real good solution. IDK about anything newer but that's a very good card.

I've used GPU warranty to get GPU replaced (in warranty) two times with EVGA (I'm in Canada).

Pretty sure you can't use the CC warranty to replace a perfectly good albeit older gen GPU?

I never said perfectly good

I'll add: a broken old rear end GPU, in America (USA) , specifically using an extended cc warranty

Sorry

Palit are great and top a lot of benchmarks, but their shroud designer is on acid.

I’d buy them over MSI, Gigabyte, Zotac, PNY any day.

They are also often very chonky which makes managing internals difficult, but that’s most GPUs these days.

I think Palit and pny are owned by the same company. I had a pny 1060 for 2 years that I sold to a friend. They tell me it's still working fine 2 years down the line.

PNY is American and not affiliated with Palit as far as I can tell.

Palit and Gainward are the same company. They also release GPUs under the Galax and KFA2 brands (among others).

Iirc they used to release under Galaxy too in certain markets (SEA). My 6600gt was a galaxy.

computerbase.de include Palit/Gainward in many of their benchmarks if someone wants to take a look under the hood by the way.

Aside from getting the correct MXM version, form factor(size) and wattage are there any other considerations for compatibility? Do some laptops require specific vbios to work? PC laptops not iMacs.

So far my new 2070 Super is performing nicely. It's weird being able to max everything out and have headroom to spare. Haven't had a chance to try it out on many games yet, but it is really impressive so far. It looks like my system is running about 2 degrees hotter than it was with the 1060 in the case, but I figure topping out around 77 degrees celsius on a Ryzen 3600X is fine.

In other news, got an email today that Best Buy finally cancelled my "stuck" order. This is after I lost my patience and filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, so that might be related. It is so weird to go from a perfectly ordinary experience ordering a monitor from them to ending up in customer service hell ordering a GPU.

Just out of curiosity, what is your next play? Are you going to skip the 3000 series, which is generally thought to release in September-ish? Or are you going to sell your 2070 in a few months and upgrade? I'm pretty interested because the financial play of buying a graphics card right now is basically, I mean no offense but basically close to throwing money into a dumpster fire. People have lots of reasons to buy things, and I'm absolutely not judging, I'm just curious what people making GPU buys right now are thinking and where their value is at going forward.

I had just built a new machine for the first time in a decade and I wasn't going to wait to get a videocard to keep up with it. I've needed to upgrade my old machine for the last couple years but couldn't swing it financially. No way I am going to limp along with a GPU bottleneck after having to wait literal years to upgrade the rest of the machine.

I have never sold a videocard, and plan to hang onto this one. I don't see a 2070S being underpowered for quite some time, and I'll upgrade as needed. I don't need the newest and most powerful GPU, I just need a GPU that does what I want. The 2070S does that.

My PNY 1060 6GB looks identical to a Palit 1060 6GB I saw in a review. Don't know if that's indicative of anything, just something I noticed around the time I purchased the card.

I doubt either has their own GPU assembly lines, so they are likely taking the reference PCB design, buying an off the shelf cooler from someone like CoolerMaster, and outsourcing to Foxconn, Pegatron, or Flextronics for PCB production and assembly.

Can quadro GPUs run in SLI just like GeForce? Driver hacks?
