I know that there are a bunch of different "graphics cards" brands but only 2 "GPU" brands (Nvidia/AMD).
So I was wondering if Nvidia/AMD Manufactured there own GPUs independently....do they?
What motherboard is it? It could probably support newer cards, unless there is some weird incompatibility or whitelist. But hard to say, depends on the board I suppose. Depending on your budget, a used 5700XT or 6700XT or 3070 might be good, if they would work. Even a new 6700XT is only around $400.On the tangent of GPU's, I had a first-world problem today:
1. My computer is from 2013. At least, that's when the final beta BIOS was released. The newest GPU the beta BIOS allows me to run is a 1080 Ti.
2. My 1080 Ti died today. The only card I had available as a spare was an old 550 Ti, which unfortunately cannot run the 2.5K resolution of my 32" monitor.
3. So I'm currently stuck on a 9-year-old computer with a slightly blurry non-native resolution & am trying to figure out if I just want to replace it with a used high-spec card or upgrade.
My computer is rock-solid. No TPM 2.0 chip so no official Windows 11, but Win10 doesn't deep-six until like 2025. I have a bunch of cards & storage drives. It's a 6-core unit with 64 gigs of RAM, so it's been a beast for quite a long time now. Only a standard 500 MB/s, not the new-fangled NVMe 4.0 7,200 MB/s-whatever chips available. But I'm pretty sure I could keep it going for another few years no problem, so maybe I'll just bite the bullet & snag a used mining card off fleabay to keep my system rolling.
Although that new 24GB 4090 Ti sounds nice1 Just not $1,499 nice LOL.
TSMC manufactures the GPUs for Nvidia/AMD.So I was wondering if Nvidia/AMD Manufactured there own GPUs independently....do they?
