    The 1200 Evga is also on sale, 10 bucks cheaper than the 1600. I paid twice that price for my 1200 PLATINUM

    I was reading Evga's thread last night, and it seems the other day when I bought my 2080Ti card on there site, that they sold 300 of those cards in about 56 mins, that was all they had in stock at that time. They went very fast....

    Something interesti I just noticed on my system after swapping my 8700k for the 9900K:

    Turn On or Off Core Isolation Memory Integrity in Windows 10 - Page 13 - | Tutorials

    Also, whille PMing with @AddRAM this morning:

    And the "Enable Meltdown Protection" switch doesn't turn it on after the reboot(needed to do it).

    I'm guessing both of these are do to the hardware mitigations on these chips for two versions of meltdown and spectre.

    But oddly the microcode that's up to date in my UEFI is suddenly also no good
    Window 1809 doesn't have a microcode update yet either, as I just checked at the Microsoft Update Catalog website.

    Maybe InSpectre needs to be updated for new hardware?

    That might be the best answer Cliff, as its been a while since it was updated...

    Hi,
    It's like that on every release that I've noticed
    It's easier to get evga cards anywhere else but their website :)

    Yes I believe you, but Evga has the lowest price right now.
    Plus nobody else has them ....and if they do, its over 1500.00 ...some at 1700...

    Hi,
    Yeah gougers took over that is common with slow manufacturing which evga has mastered trickling volume to keep prices high as possible

    Every evga gpu I've bought in the past I got cheaper some where else.
