Do you need a new power supply for Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3080?
Do you need to upgrade your power supply for Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card? That's a concern many people have, but it's actually two concerns clumped into one.

First, people fear they'll need a new PSU to handle the new 12-pin connector on Nvidia's own RTX 3080 Founders Edition. Second, the RTX 3080 pulls more wattage than even the prior-gen RTX 2080 Ti flagship. That's why Nvidia bumped the recommend power supply rating up to 750 watts to compensate, up from a 650W maximum last go-round.

Windows 10 upgrades are rarely useful, say IT admins
A majority of IT administrators polled this summer said that the twice-a-year Windows 10 feature upgrades are not useful - or rarely so - a stunning stance considering how much effort Microsoft puts into building the updates.

About 58% of nearly 500 business professionals who are responsible for servicing Windows at their workplaces said that Windows 10 feature upgrades - two annually, one each in the spring and fall - were either not useful (24%) or rarely useful (34%).

[ Related: Windows 10 version 2004: Key enterprise features ] Only 20% contended that the upgrades were useful in some fashion, while a slightly larger chunk - 22% - choose a noncommittal neutral as a response, claiming that the operating system's updates were neither useful nor not useful. (It might be best to consider this answer as undecided since in this binary world if something is not not useful, that must mean it is useful.)
