    Yeah, who needs more than 8GB VRAM, eh?
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.

    i'm .... not even using the 4K texture pack.

    I should give that a go (I think it would still work fine, VRAM throughput isn't the issue)

    i should also note that disabling gameworks gives me an additional 35 FPS immediately

    So having absorbed some reviews; The 2080 is on average 34% faster than a 1080.

    Meh.

    Yeah, hair, grass, and I cant remember the third option off hand, dramatically affect the performance in FF15.

    VXAO and ShadowLite or something.

    Disabled everything other than Hair and Turfworks, because it looks dope

    Been away 3 weeks. Turned on PC, startup to BIOS only. System SSD not found anymore … :sad panda:

    Guess I ll try RMA'ing , 3 years old 850 evo, should have 5 years warranty … its certainly far from the TBW limit for its warranty too.
    But setting all up again … the effort … *sigh*

    Anyway, as there was no obvious mishandling and its well within warranty, nothing speaks against Samsung replacing it, I guess?

    Dumb question, have you tried unplugging and replugging the SSD?

    Every few months my PC will do the same and it's usually a loose SATA connection (mostly after I move the PC around for whatever reason)

    Also clear CMOS etc etc

    Do you have any mates you can test the SSD in also?

    Try this: pull the SATA data cable from the drive, turn the PC on and leave it for 25 minutes. Then power down, reconnect the SATA cable and switch on.

    Some SSDs (Samsung and Crucial mainly) have firmware bugs that can push the drive into a confused state where it seems to be bricked. 20-25 minutes powered up without any SATA activity quite often brings the drive back.

    Yeah, I have a first gen Crucial and this is what happens

    Can confirm I had that with My Samsung 850 as well. Works fine now again allthough it's not my C: driver anymore.

    Even if they're 49% faster that still doesn't merit the huge price gouging over the previous generation

    I'm normally a team green fanboy but Nvidia are taking the piss
    They already were with the 10 series price gouging. And the 9 series (3,5gig of ram 970 fiasco). 20 series is just kicking customers when they are down. Remember when you could get the mid sized chip for 250?
    No competition is AIDs.

    The 970 is still a damn good card, even with the 3.5 fiasco

    But yeah, I agree

    Unfortunately I have tried that already without any results. Only thing I haven't tried yet is an external enclosure , but I don't really think that would make a difference.
