The reason they said “multiple years,” is another dig at reviewers; saying they are “spoiled” because “they get free graphics cards every few months,” and thus they are “out of touch” with the average consumer who is paying for a card and keeping it for years. Which is just a load of shit

Tyrannical companies have to be left behind. It’s a disease happening all over. Two major GPU manufacturer. Why? In a way we as a whole let that happen encouraging and choosing what we buy. I know this did not happened over night. Why is it that Amazon got to where they are today? What happened to small companies competing for market share? The answer my friend is way back when “marketing” became the “science” of lies. MBA teaching this liners to buy companies. Easy money buy everyone and keep all the creative people under one company. On and on and on. Bottom line? Lazy spoiled people. Greedy and easy money brought us where we are today....

I could really see the concern in your face Linus. I saw Jays response as well. Negative comments from a few reviewers is probably less backlash than what they are going to get for what they did. If they were confident in their product they would not have done that. AMD is too close for comfort obviously. Really upsetting.

I know, im a fish in the pond when we think about how many subs you have. But for that explenation about click bait is... 1. Totally wrong. Its not the color of the package. Its a package without windows to look inside, and a label on it, stating something completly else as there is actually in it. 2. You lost a sub. And if for some reason, humanity grows back a spine, you will loose many more over the time. Have a good day, i am not against you and wish you much luck for your business.

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.

Linus, seriously, NOW nVidia is under suspicion of being evil?! Reminder: nVidia's business strategy to beat 3Dfx and putting them out of business was: running to gaming studios discrediting the Voodoo technology, and opening up a datasheet spec war against 3Dfx about color depth and other, at that time, "nonsense" features, so that gaming reviews wrote more and more critical about 3Dfx ...despite most of the Riva TNT's and TNT 2's features not resulting in recognizably better picture quality over Voodoo 2 or Voodoo 3 but always lacking fps against 3Dfx. It took nVidia until the GeForce 2 to catch up to 3Dfx (at that point renamed to 3dfx) in terms of raw performance. nVidia was and is the fucking Empire from Star Wars!

This issue understandably matters a lot to content creators, but as a consumer, I couldn't care less about it, since I just do what consumers always do: we decide ahead of time how much we're willing to spend, then buy the best-performing card available in our price range at the time. The politics surrounding the relationship between media outlets and manufacturers puts me to sleep.

That PR dude needs to be fired immediately. This is literally the worst thing he could have done for a 'Ray Tracing' Advocate. The last thing a PR person should have done here is sending an email like this which he knew would go public. Now even if gamers like Ray Tracing - it won't matter because they have politicized the issue - and frankly - this is the most moronic PR move by Nvidia ever.

Nvidia has let all of this power get to their heads. Thinking they can tell people what to say during a review. Talking points, I get. Feature points, I get. But to try and tell a reviewer what to say is a pitiful attempt at indoctrination on their part. They have no right to try and command a herd of Wilda Beasts that are consumers. Nvidia will get trampled under the charge.

Wow NVidia just sunk even lower in my eyes. Once I get a chance to build my own pc both Nvidia and Intel are off my list. First reason for that are prices ,second policy third one goes for nvidia only and it's related to their driver and from what i saw both mobile and regular pc drivers are stiff in terms of customization and what kind of options they offer. Laptop i currently use has amd's processor and mobile gpu and is way better than intel's and nvidia's. I also still have my old hp laptop that has intel's cpu and nvidia's mobile gpu and difference betwwen both is big. Amds support for socket lasts longer while intel changes sockets say every 2-3 years. I mean it's been long time since ryzen series showed up for the first time they supported am4 socket since and they still do.

Thank god someone is finally saying what i have been saying about Reviewers, they are not advertisers, these two things are separate. Here in the US advertisement blatantly lie (in some cases) or Dangerously come close to lying (most cases). Reviewers are only as good as there honesty, depth, insight. There is integrity required to be a reviewer, they are not advertisers, the job of a reviewer is realistic application to reflect reality (this include the education of the product). It is not to be a puppet. In other words if you have a crap product DO NOT EXPECT PRAISE, if you have a weakness do not dare to dream that it will be swept under the carpet. "Go Buy A Mouse Pad ..." -Linus the timing of this just made me laugh. If Nivida or any other company is reading this, i should point out I would rather wait for a review than buy a piece of shit product.

I'm not a fan of LTT reviews. But I have recently watched a few vids of Linus as a person (this one being the latest) and OMG I have to say, he grew miles in my eyes! Even though I might not like the style he makes his content but the fact that he is THE de facto big fish in computer parts reviews and seeing the humility how he deals with this situation is truly respectable. Linus, you are a great person. Power like yours should be used like this to make the world an even better and just place.

This is very reminiscent of radios Payola Scandal in early 1960. That, "pay to play" scandal led to legislation that made this type of unethical transaction a criminal act. Maybe NVIDIA should read up on that bit of unethical behavior that caused Congress to come down hard on an entire industry. That only happened because that industry lacked the moral and ethical convictions to police itself.

So out of almost 1.66M views, almost 100K up-votes, but 1.7K down-votes?! gives you a picture of how stupid we really are. Seems like most people are just completely ignorant (especially taking into account people not interested in technical stuff, so many of whom wouldn't watch channels like this because they don't have the brains for it), and a very small percentage of us has a decent capacity to reason, while an even smaller (but surprisingly big) percentage of that in turn is most probably extremely retarded. To think I used to think 80 percent of people might be able to think for themselves. I must be smarter than I thought. I wish I wasn't sad about it. Don't tell me DEpost users are not a good representative of the demographic since everyone's got an account.
