You have disabled one-tenth of the graphics cards, and the repair may take place in the middle of the month.
For people who want to buy gaming laptops, there is no pleasant situation. Due to the heat limitation targeted by manufacturers, the exact same processor and graphics card can provide completely different performance under different models. Presumably, if the manufacturer has to take it out of the top speed due to thermal design, they don’t like to beat the bass drum, so consumers need to follow up to understand the true function of the selected product.
Nevertheless, this is a big scandal break out Around Dell’s Alienware, it disabled one-tenth of the CUDA cores on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card in its m15 Ryzen Edition R5 laptop. The customer knew that the diagnostic program only reported 4608 CUDA cores instead of 5120, which was initially considered a fault, but soon discovered that this was not the case.
Silence also means that certain ray tracing cores cannot be used by running applications.
Dell Customer Service was the first to apologize for optimization for non-detailed purposes, but Alienware soon referred to the problem as a manufacturing defect. The company stated that there is a problem with the video BIOS of these machines, but it is expected to release an update in mid-June to enable customers to restore the performance of the graphics controller.
