So I enjoy watching Hardware Unboxed, the dude does good videos and decent benchmarks with honest opinions. It seems NVIDIA wasn't impressed with him being forthright so they left out his 2060 sample and claimed they were short on boards even though TweakTown in Australia got theirs.

More here:

I guess the massive drop in stock value has Jensen worried and he needs to shift all the RTX cards he can.

Well get all the honest reviewers tag teaming it and sharing cards for objective second/third/... coverage of a product. I rather see well mature set of reviews or evolution of reviews (separate looks that build upon the first) vice just first impressions. As for the paid to rate reviewers, I just don't give then a second of my time.

I saw this video the other day. This guy is a clear example of someone that signed Nvidia's NDA and didn't push it through a tech lawyer.

I would not say he's really in the same boat as Kyle. He's just getting stonewalled by the terms of the NDA. As far as I know, Kyle doesn't even get review samples anymore (while this guy still does, albeit late).

I fell in love with the [H] because no one that writes for this site kisses anyone's asses. They kick ass on a regular basis :cool:

What kinda pisses me off is that if you just google RTX 2080 ti vs GTX 1080 or similar searches the first few links to detailed reviews are basically just generic spunk pieces from "gaming" websites about how if you don't buy RTX right now you might as well just not bother to play recent games. You can really tell whos just doing paid ads versus reviews. So I have to go digging for honest reviews. Now I have a list of reviewers I trust and I gotta sit tight on new releases until retail reviews. Which fine, just a little disgusted by the need.

I am shocked, shocked I tell you, well not that shocked...…. :D This is just Nvidia being Nvidia but hey, just keep spending the money on those unused features that cannot really be effective till the next generation.

I would be disgusted if I cared about Nvidia at all. However, I will stick with AMD. (Unless you are saying you have ran into a paid for AMD piece that was not advertised as such.)

Read the UPDATE on the bottom of the conclusion page of the MSI 2070 review (read the whole thing if you haven't already).

https://www.hardocp.com/article/2018/10/14/msi_geforce_rtx_2070_gaming_z_performance_review/

That right there is why I look to [H] for the non BS real world performance reviews/previews/in depth analysis.
Yeah but, as long as people keep buying Nvidia, they will keep trying this stuff. Their stock taking a nose dive was effected by this, at least in part.

I was really hoping the Radeon VII(as its now known) was gonna replace my GTX1080.

I've never been a fanboy Pentium<Athlon XP<64<64x2<Core2<I5<i7<probably Zen2 then <Geforce Ti<Radeon<GT/GTX<5850<280x<GTX I just kinda buy whatever does what I want it to do.

I do wish Intel/Nvidia werent scummy cunts but I've never been one to sacrifice my performance for my politics. Though I'll openly admit I really ate shit on the i7 7700k. I was having an emotional day at work and went out and bought whatever the best thing was at the time. Wish I had known the Ryzen 5 series was coming. I just bought my friend an AMD 2600 system for literally half what I paid for my gen 7 system.

Your 'gen 7 system' is still faster- it's what AMD used for their Radeon VII benchmarks, after all!

And this is news? They've been doing this for years now even after ryzen launched. The gpu side of amd using an intel cpu to eek the most performance out at lower res is hardly a new thing.

I had no idea I figured they'd use a threadripper chip. Thats gotta sting internally.

I don't think amd cpu and gpu side get on all that well, remember the nvidia tweet welcoming amd back to the cpu side, something was mentioned about using nvidia gpus then you had one of the amd guys chime in with "umm vega?" at one point. So seems a little strained at best,

Since more gamers use Intel plus AMD acknowledging this and giving benchmarks using Intel I think is a good thing. Plus if they did use Ryzen, even at 4K it would be just as good, many I would believe would ridicule AMD for using Ryzen. Anyways real benchmarks will be out with real tests, hopefully Brent will get the first sample - [H]ardOCP definitely deserves it!

Don't know that ATI was ever fully integrated into AMD. Hell, that's why RTG exists.
