    Nah... memory supply discussions obviously. Intel has so much idle fab capacity that they would want to make the GPUs in-house! Else how would they justify their R&D and CAPEX investments?

    With all the high profile tech bods Intel have employed in the last 18 months you'd think they would be starting to catch up by now.

    Main: ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer, i7 980, 24GB Corsair Dominator GT, OCZ Vectors + HDDs, Inno3D GTX 980 iChill Herculez X4 Air Boss Ultra, Seasonic X-850W, Fractal Design Define XL, 10 x64 Pro, Noctua DH14 + stock chassis fans

    What idle capacity? They've been supply constrained for the past year, and likely most of this year as well.

    Some will get resolved when the 10nm products come online, but its still an uphill battle.
