The NVIDIA RTX 2060 Founders Edition is more difficult to open than even the previous RTX FE cards, now adding more glue to the process.

Our review is available separately: https://ai-tube.com/videoai/o4Xsep3xx_p

The RTX 2060 is a significantly more competitive RTX offering than previous RTX cards, but still faces the same challenges in assembly for the Founders Edition model. There are still a lot of screws, there's still glue, but now it's more difficult to get the cooler off, thus making it more difficult to replace the thermal paste on the RTX 2060. Servicing the RTX 2060 Founders Edition model will be difficult.

nvidia:glue it and use 7 screws to hold 1 wire
XFR: hy guys can i have that zip tie you have?

Everything just works, the glue works, the screws work, the soldering works, everything just works.

Planned obsolescence, they want you to buy another one not fix it or clean it.

Pretty sure the 30XX series will just be encased in epoxy at this point.

Ngreedia is turning in to Apple. Look what is happening to apple right now. Apple lost more than 50% of its worth on the market and Ngreedia is next. LOL I wouldent buy a GPU from nvidia if they are the fastest in the universe. All of nvidias anti consumer tactics are just to mutch. To bad that there is no alternatves in the moment. AMD is hitting the same tactics more or less. Look at AMD's anouncement at CES. Bullshit... In the current situation im not giving anyone of them my hard earnd cash. I gues il stay with my 2x 780Ti in the moment and wait to see what is going to happen. It is realy sad to see this kind of development. The whole gaming industry is turning to shit. Lootboxes, microtransactions and broken lasy gamedevelopment to make a quick cashgrabs on the games side and on the other are Ngreedia and AMD trying to suck you dry with their bullshit. It is realy sad to watch.

I wander how long it will be before they start selling gpu pcb's and chips separately and making that part of builds as well. Seems they could already do it if they wanted to.

17:59 Stop a second and appreciate the pick and place wonder that put all those SMDs around the die.

progressive liberals normalized mental illness.

These are their fruits.

stopped watching after idiot kept whining about screw size being changed

3060 will be welded...

2060 with 6GB VRAM is so pointless.

there are 3 or 4 heatpipes?

Acetone on a q-tip would solve the glue problem, probably. Not sure why they felt the need to go to these lengths to keep people from taking apart the electronics they own.

Revisit: What Manufacturers Think RTX 2060 FE Tear-Down: They Added 2 weeks ago   22:50

We revisit a topic from July of 2017: What do board partners and PSU manufacturers think of cryptomining? What is affecting GPU price?

Article: https://www.gamersnexus.net/industry/3211-what-do-manufacturers-think-of-mining-and-gpu-prices

Find our original coverage of this question here: https://ai-tube.com/videoai/C_bUDCJEJaD

This video visits the topic of GPU prices and video card supply, primarily asking manufacturers and board partners to anonymously share thoughts on the industry. During this discussion, we talk about rising memory prices -- as with RAM -- and tightening memory supply. We also talk cryptomining demand and its impact, GPU mining, and power supply maker thoughts on the same issues.

This is a time where high RAM prices and high GPU prices have made it nearly impossible to build a new gaming PC -- at least, not without spending a fortune. Mining is partly to blame, but supply is also to blame. Vendors are concerned about over-investing in additional graphics cards when a cryptomining crash could mean being left "holding the bag," as it were. This goes further with new architectures undoubtedly looming -- no Turing test needed to figure that out -- as it becomes harder to sell overstock of old architectures at that time.
