More problem with Fermi [SA]
According to Charlie, Nvidia ask the Manufacturers to increase the TDP of 50w at the last moment to fix a design problem with the chips

SemiAccurate :: SemiAccurate wrong about Nvidia 480GTX power use

I know better to believe rumurs..but...where there is smoke there is fire...punn intended.

I wonder if Charlie's source is the same one Kyle used for his Newegg story lol.

Much speculation here until it comes out. We will have a dozen more of these threads until release.

Not saying this is not true, but we will not know until the 26th. Even if the card draws 275w at launch, I won't believe this story until a company like Evga or a reputable reviewer can confirm that they made that increase.

I have my doubts the card just magically got 50W hotter.... we all know how Charlie is with Nvidia.

So many rumours (sigh). Like the one that Charlie was beaten as a child with a RIVA 128ZX (I'm almost sure that can't be true). :biggrin:

I am done thinking about anything to do with fermi till there are real full reviews available.

I dont trust a word that guy says on his site because its always anti-nvidia and pro-ati, thats not objective reporting. No wonder his site is called semi accurate
