pbmpharmacistWhy not ALL MLCC like Asus though?
Maxidrom2002U guys knew about this issue weeks, if not months ago...and you are all coming out of the closet now...ONLY BECAUSE OF INDEPENDENT REPORTING. This is not how u build trust...
2 points· MLCCs also lose capacitance with age, while tantalums do not age.2 points· I think an additional key part to note here is that polymer caps and mlcc’s provide charge sources for separate frequency ranges of your power delivery network.
dalgrimpbmpharmacistWhy not ALL MLCC like Asus though?Because that wouldn't necessarily be better. POSCAPS are great at thermal stability, MLCCs are not. there is also a voltage issue as frequency increases. It appears the 4+20 is the best option, even the nvidia design uses that setup.
