This is in regards to the Nvidia controversy. Where do I start...... In an effort to drum up subscribers and in an effort to show people that Nvidia doesn't just play nice with Nvidia shill's, Hardware Unboxed and Nvidia drummed up a controversy about Nvidia trying to strong arm your content. Their channel hadn't seen as much of a boom as other tech channels during the pandemic and Nvidia wanted their channel to be popular so they could use you review as one of their headlines for raytracing. To drum up a false controversy which plays on peoples emotions, which I now everyone else does, may be ingenious but extremely low. The proof is what happened after, their subscribers were stagnate compared to other DEpostr's and Nvidia was getting slammed in rasterization which HU made a big deal about and raytracing, which they mentioned once and would come in a follow up video about the 3080. Afterward the letter was leaked and more popular youtubers caught wind of it , they more then doubled their subscribers and Nvidia had the focus back on raytracing.

In terms of MY refund on my pre-order of Cyberpunk 2077...I asked for a refund (purchased in June of 2019) at least a month and a half before the launch. It took them almost 40 days! to refund back to the payment portal I used originally, which was PayPal. And that was after MUCH effort on my part just keeping them on their toes with mandatory weekly emails to ask what was going on. Otherwise, I felt that when I didn't communicate with them, they just ignored me. This and other reasons have caused me to let them know that they have burned all the goodwill that they garnered in the past.
Rickbearcat Vor 9 Tage
If the Nvidia email that was sent to HU was (in one form or another) had been sent to other DEpost Tech communities, then I would say that they were sorry for getting caught. Otherwise, I think this was a one-off from someone other than Brian and that he is sorry this ever happened. The other option is that this was a test. They sent this email to a semi-large tech channel to gauge the response of the community just to see what would happen in this exact situation. When they realized this was going to burn them hard, Nvidia walked back to do damage control. End of experiment.

I mean how many people in the comments section of youtube ever apologise? it practically never happens as they have nothing to lose. We and they need to remember Nvidia are just a much of people, with all the same potential fualts as us. No doubt from their achievements many of them are running on god-mode, thinking they are better than others because they have shown to be highly valued. It happens all the time. It's a cut-throat business, and people are under great stress to do whatever it takes, it's typical at some point someone would try to swing there weight. I'm only surprised others are surprised, I mean Nvidia have shown their morality already, paying companies off to cripple there competitors benchmarks. It's the same box of backdoor tricks.

CDPR let me down with cyber punk. When a developer includes a perk that allows knife throwing you’d think there be some reusable knives. But even then you’d think there would at least be a cheap and easily craftable knife. Again nope the only crafted throwing knife requires 9 in crafting stat and it’s rare. At that point the only thing I can assume is CDPR didn’t really care.

I am still in awe that this is a thing. Did this Brian character at NVidia read the letter? Is it actually his signature (wet or digital)? Any chance it is some person at NVidia over zealous about their contribution or child product? I don’t know if powers that be at NVidia expect this Brian guy to fall on his own sword or have some other fall person in mind. In any case, this looks really bad for NVidia.

Yes , I have a problem! but I'm starting to think it is listening to, too many , reviewers and influencers, and all you other youtubers!!!! I could have bought a system cheaper, which would have served my purpose, probably 6 months ago, (perhaps a little longer!, but not much)!!! But everybody said wait, this is going to be big, your going to get "diamond encrusted, GPU's and CPU's, that give 6000 fps, and light speed raytracing, and the CPU's are going to shoot flame out of your case when you power up your PC!!!!" Starting to wonder if all the big Corporations, are leading All the computer, based, DEpostrs, for want of a better word down the same track, too their own ends? To use a simile, the corporations, are the land owners, youtubers are the shepherd's , and we are are the sheep!!!! I suppose the wolves are the scalpers????? So, after watching Zen 2 CPU's drop ,then now about15-20%more expensive, GPU's now not available, as well CPU's, MOBO's etc !!!. What am I to think about all this wonderful advice? actually I think this was boiling away just pre- covid-19, so drop that as an excuse! What I wanted to build ,was a Zen 2 based system and be available for some upgrades.(based around an R5 3600). so they are not available or to expensive. So what an R5 2600?? For price? PAUL ,not directed at you, but, without checking, think you probably said the same? And I check all the people you consider reputable !!! So without doing a crash course on intel parts, and not really expecting it to be cheaper, AMD is still the way to go, except you can't buy it!!!!

Cyberpunk 2077 is fun. Getting that 40-80fps maxed out at 1080p. There are bugs. Like flying across the map from jumping on a wall and then dying. Or jumping off a 2 story building to slam into the ground and die. Or putting clothes on to run around naked. Or it freezing but still able to reload from quicksave. Other than that. Good game so far. 30+ hrs of playing. Playing PC with 1080 ti. 3900x. 32gb ram. I think the story is pretty good. Spent most of my time doing side quests and raiding crime scenes and gangs. Level 17 over 30 street cred. And just now on Act 2.

Really, you think you got Them? you really didn't get it did you? Dumb reviewers. NVIDIA got free publicity thanks to you. When you talked about NVIDIA you talked about how good their products were, and all of the features, and the only thing you were outraged about was about their policies. Since they sort of apologized on that, then it's business as usual, people can go back and buy their fabulous products and blah blah... And thanks for all the free publicity and the buzz you freely generated. All that they did was on purpose, and you fell for it. But you "got" them, congratulations.

I could understand all the frustration with Nvidia if the channels were buying their own cards and Nvidia was trying to silence the reviewer's views, effectively silencing free speech. But, to expect to receive free hardware and then give negative reviews on it but still expect free hardware is being entitled. Would you continue to support a business/channel that badmouthed you as a company and vision or use that resources on someone giving you positive business flow? In the end they are a business. I personally agree that raytracing is the future and needs to be pushed. We're hitting a technological wall with raster graphics. It's why cg effects and animated films have gone completely over to raytracing. I really believe that Nvidia felt his channel failed to understand that and many aspects of where the graphics industry is going. I don't believe it's the negative review he gave but the lack of understanding of industry trends and technological development. They were not going to get his channel silenced or shut down. They were simply not going to provide free merchandise to someone they felt didn't have a good understanding on the subject. The apology was definitely Nvidia making a business decision and not sincere. I'm sure that behind closed doors they are fuming at the entitled mentality and backlash. How many channels would exist without free hardware when they were starting out? Fair reviews from channels that understanding what they are reviewing are what Nvidia want to invest in. They simply didn't see his channel as worth investing in.

Idk about the rest of the gaming community, but I do know that PSaccess won't stop gushing about Ray tracing on the ps5, so I think there is some truth to what Nvidia said about it being the future, but I don't watch hardware reviews to see how it could theoretically perform on games releasing in 2021 and beyond, i care how it performs right now, and right now most games don't use it.

Hey Linus, some time you have try to acknowledge that you are not the center of the world. Only because you can not beliefe people are getting very angry about besmirching their political leader, it doesn’t happen. I bet you that there are more people upset in China for besmirching winny poo that there are people living in Canada. By the way some people can’t believe you are upset about companies not upholding reviewers god given right to free review examples because these companies believe they will not get favorable reviews of their products. Just for the record, Nvidia and the Chinese government can fuck themselves and Fall of a cliff.
