    Nvidia will probably introduce integrity checking by comparing the hashes of the drivers

  2. RubberPanda says:

    Don’t think Nvidia will send you more GPUs after this…

    Hex editing binaries on LTT..never thought I’d see the day.

  6. PiDsMedia says:

    Soooo,… How much faster rendering do these cards provide for programs that don’t use SLI, but just a bunch of Cuda cores, like DaVinci Resolve ??? Can we load up a PC with two of the P106’s and a single GTX1060?

    Anthony is a super cool dude.

  15. Jesse Valdez says:

    One like for Anthony

  16. Diego Zuñiga says:

    Give Anthony his own series about super-technical stuff like this. I’d watch it even if i don’t understand a thing!

    • Nesque says:

      Totally, he’s like an acended linus.

    • Mijc Osis says:

      He is definitely very easy to listen to. His intonation reminds me of Big Clive and he has the great Newfoundland accent.

    • Francesco Pallotta says:

      Yes please

    • spiralfractr says:

      +Jen Lai I think all the hate people are throwing at you is a bit.. off putting. 1. Anthony is morbidly obese. 2. This is none of your business. 3. People should be concerned for Anthony, not Rude to you. 4. Anthony.. Buy. Some. New. Pants.

    • Jen Lai says:

      +rompdude appearance aside is it ever a good thing to be obese? besides that I’m concerned about his health. lastly I have belly fat too and I’m working hard to get rid of it.

  17. Tollymaster Official says:

    That “Anthony” is pretty smart. You need more guys like him ?

  18. ? says:

    Hey guys, two things that could work to flash the actual bios of the P106 to the one of a 1060:

    1. Locate the physical bios chip and try to flash the bios with an EEPROM flasher.

    2. Desolder the bios chip of a 1060 and solder it onto the P106 board. I know this probably won’t make sense by cost but it would be a cool proof of concept.
