Has everything to do with it. What do you think creates energy? when you break it down, Petroleum. The trucks ship everything everywhere, to power stations, to your stores, do your home. China is in a large push for coal powered plants. For every one the US wants to get rid of, China wants 2.What does Chervron have to do with video cards? You "conservatives" must always drag every topic into politics, eh? You'll never be satisfied until every last drop of oil and natural resources are siphoned out of the earth all the while pointing fingers at liberals.
It comes down to cost. Performance isn't king and nVidia/AMD knows this. This is part of the psychology of pricing. Make the top dog out of reach and everything below seems reasonable. That's how many manufacturers/salesman get you to buy. Like a car. Show you something out of your price range and as you waffle, then show you what they intended on selling anyways.If that was the case cards like RTX 3090 Ti and RX 6950 XT would be the most popular cards but they are not so you must be wrong.

It's all about the need for power. While other products get more efficient, a lot of computer products do not.
I think Video cards and CPU's should come with those big yellow stickers you now see on even TV's that show you the average cost per year to use. You know, with the line chart.
Really now? I have a 3090 and a 12900k. Peak gaming wattage doesn't exceed 600-650, average is lower than that.Unfortunately, with the power draws listed, you would need a PSU of approximately 1200 watts to be on the "sweet spot", which is going to occur at about 800 or 900 watts.
This video from "GamersNexus" explains "transient spikes". Even though I don't game, I still found it interesting
That's just the CPU and GPU, other parts not included? Both are very power-hungry parts, if you lock the framerate and there's overhead then I can understand or if it's undervolted.Really now? I have a 3090 and a 12900k. Peak gaming wattage doesn't exceed 600-650, average is lower than that.
No they didn't.And China recently stopped building coal plants overseas.
I have an open challenge to anyone who thinks they can armchair design a better CPU or VGA than what\'s being designed by teams of thousands of people. Just design and build something as simple as say, a 386 CPU. at home.What I would like to see is a 4070 Ti, cooler Temps, much less energy spent and as fast as the 3090 Ti. But that is not what we are getting, is it?
Just curious, when did "many", become a synonym for "much"?And it could use as many energy and TDP.
My post was based on figures based on numbers in a post by another member, either measured, "or imagined" by that person.Really now? I have a 3090 and a 12900k. Peak gaming wattage doesn't exceed 600-650, average is lower than that.
Yes. They only promised to stopped building "new" coal plants and are continuing to build plants that are under construction or that were already contracted for construction before the promise was made.No they didn't.
"China’s promise to stop building coal plants overseas is full of caveats and loopholes...China announced the ban last year, but Chinese companies are still pursuing carbon-intensive coal projects abroad. Currently, Chinese banks and companies are involved in 86 coal power projects abroad
...the government’s definition of “new” allows China to continue building dozens of plants. On top of that large caveat, Chinese companies have also exploited gray areas to continue to pursue coal projects overseas, even if they weren’t already under construction when Xi made his announcement.
Seven months later, those who cheered Xi’s pledge are asking: How much impact will it actually have?"
No. You missed the important part:Yes. They only promised to stopped building "new" coal plants
