Nice! Congrats Greg! I think you will like Mass Effect Andromeda despite all the negativity. You are the type of person that tells it like it is. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Also, I can't think of a better person to win the flash drive. Congratulations!

I think Greg should get a fancy glass enclosure for his and put it on his fireplace mantle. Angel

I think he should display it at his work.

It's more of a collector's item. It isn't really totally practical for use as a flash drive because it is SO large. It's hard to find a PCIe slot by itself to plug it into.

And if it were me, I wouldn't leave it out to be taken home by someone. I bet there is currently some value to them as there are only 1080 in the world.

However, if I were going to sell mine, I'd do it soon, because I would guess that Nvidia will make more for sale. They ought to make the fan spin
:itwasntme:

I plan to keep it and occasionally use it when I need a 64GB flash drive. Up-until-now, my largest capacity flash drive is 16GB.

I think they should make it dual BIOS and overclockable. BIOS 1: USB 2.0. BIOS 2: USB 3.0. It will run hot if you overclock it though. :P

It's already dual BIOS the way you define it - but it's automatic and can handle USB 2.0 and 3.0 on the fly.
:clapping:

Nvidia ought to make a smaller GTX flash drive so that it would be more practical for day-to-day use. And I'd still like to fidget with the fan spinner.
