    It’s a shame that so many of those dedicated mining GPUs are useless now, isn’t it? But even with no outputs, Chinese hackers made it so they can still game! Or have they…

        NVidia: This card cannot game

        Linus: games on it*

        NVidia: even though it games, it wouldn't even reach >40 fps right guys?

        Linus: Average FPS is 64, just 3 fps short than the 1060

                        They should make it a service that you have to pay for that way its reasonable for them to enable gaming.

                                  Motion blur really is the dumbest shit ever. I always turn it off, along with removing depth blur and the like.

                                              Hi Linus. Why you Guys didn't just solder a Display-Output to this Card? (I think i saw the Connector-Pins on it; in your Video)
                                              I did something similar with a Mainboard; it had an Sata2-Controller and Options in the BIOS. But no Sata-Connectors.
                                              Bought some for a few Penny's from China, soldered it up and it worked.
                                              Wouldn't it be a Try worth, to do this with Card?

                                                  This really shows how disgusting these corporations are, they would rather pollute a massive amount of e-waste than allow a few people to have a lower-price option when compared to their grossly overpriced GPUs.

                                                      Just a note... Windows now uses ALL CARDS as one card, with or without SLI, where it can. It is part of the WDDM drivers that all cards use. Also, if your CPU has the on-chip video, you can use that as your video out, not just onboard video. These are also good for "rendering", as in, 3D software rendering, not gaming.

He probably knows this and will do anything in his power to make sure Anthony stays in the shadows when in fact, Anthony is alpha as fuck when it comes to computers and delivers information that anyone can understand. Anthony if you see this don't hold back on anything just because others tell you to, aim high!
