    Question Left side of gpu not going all the way in new mobo

    Why is no one talking about the elephant in the room, the coming 20-50% tariffs

    Given Trump's seeming willingness to go ahead with all his previous tariff threats, we can assume that a 20-50% tariff/sanction/tax/embargo/whatever will be in place before the late 2019 product launches for all the various US technology companies with manufacturing/assembly/etc facilities in...
