Nvidia’s Turing based GTX 1180 Founders Edition set for July?

Ever since the GTX 1180 rumour mill whirred to life earlier this year and started churning through the daily grind of rumour and speculation, the release date for Nvidia’s Turing family has been in a constant state of flux. Originally, TweakTown reported that we’d have them by April (this year). Well, it’s the almost the end of May now and we’re no closer to seeing anything even vaguely Turing related, so that’s out. TeakTown later said their source wasn’t accurate and this can happen. Then we heard from Tom’s Hardware that Turing’s release had been delayed until mid-June before DigiTimes shot back about a week and a half later saying they’d been delayed again due to revised production schedules and that we now won’t see them until the autumn.

nVidia’s latest 397.93 Driver needs the GeForce Experience folder in it to de-bloat it

nVidia released today another driver, besides the usual bugfixes it has something new in it, the Setup requires now – no matter what – you to keep the GeForce Experience folder within the same dir as the Setup.exe – or you get an error. Before someone cries, it’s because changes of the Setup.exe itself – it now checks and gives you a new advance information what you like to install or not, which includes GeForce Experience directly.

Planned Obsolescence? Reports showing Memory Inductors Are Frequently Burning Out on Certain NVIDIA GPUs

Seems hating nVidia is a new kind of ‘fun’ these days, but some random people reporting especially on 780/780 Ti/Titan(XM)/980Ti cards that the memory inductors are burning out. This means the card suddenly dies. I’m not really sure what’s behind this because this can happen with every other card too. If you do an image search with “Memory Inductors Nvidia” you see several burned out cards, well the same works with AMD, so again I’m not sure what is the news here except that people crying for ‘planned obsolescence’.
