Yup, The 6500 was rightfully blasted across the board. There was no mistake to be made about it.OH I'm not defending that piece of crap. Just saying... no one buying a $150 video card was expecting much.
A 4060 TI... a lot of low information gamers are going to expect it's an upgrade from the 3060, and it is just not. Nvidia is essentially selling the same performance... drop in replacement in their line. Only thing that has changed is Nvidias costs are down margins are up.
Nvidia basically saying x60 class mid range is now 1080p... high settings, maybe medium in some titles. Is a freaking joke and I find it a lot more offensive... then a crap low end launch where no one would ever be confused about the products placement.
The 4060ti feels more insidious. Feels like all the cheapness of the 6500, but with an extra layer of "eat it up", especially right after that article that pretty much said "we at Nvidia know just how much hardware you need, stop expecting more".
