I was just saying Coulton cuz Linus always bags on him.

Riley's tiny little computer nook has a strong "that tiny tv from the office" vibe.

E:vvvv yeah you're probably right about that.

The vibe I got from Riley's home was that they bought the place and were not planning to have a baby whilst living there.

Why would nvidia do Hardware Unboxed like that? I always liked them because they had easy to read benchmarks (that you can skip too)

Seems like they shook the hornets nest and gamers nexus is mad now

Linus went in like a 30 minute rant on his podcast absolutely making GBS threads on nvidia. Pretty much everyone is against nvidia.

MSI pulls the same poo poo apparently.

Nvidia watched the industry react to msi and went “hold my beer.”

If Nvidia was scared about people compared their cards to AMD with RT off this was a loving terrible idea.

The whole thing is strange as hell when NVidia is also telling people to not expect to be able to walk into a store and buy any of their cards off the shelf for at least another 3-4 months.

This sort of "ur review was mean 2 me!" crap makes some amount of sense when you're actually having to fight to get people to buy your card. It makes no sense when everyone is already falling all over themselves for your entire product stack.
quoting this from the GPU thread because its my take as well. Apparently the guy who sent the letter isn't normally known for this sort of behavior. LTT made it seem like he's on team green, because that's his job and he has to be, but he wasn't usually like this? I wonder if he was compelled to do it. Looking forward to the GN video on it.

The guy who sent the letter is in charge of PR for Nvidia. He knows what he was doing. Whether he did it with his superiors knowing is a different story. I expect him to get fired for causing basically every tech you tuber to go against nvidia.

I'm curious to see how “us gamers” are going to walk back an email where every single sentence was completely hosed.

Well yeah, you cant do something incredibly hosed and then just say sorry.

Not a single sentence in that email is ok to send to an honest youtube channel just trying to give gamers accurate information they want.

Let alone the fact unboxed did cover other features enough to be a loving quote on Nvidia’s own site.

Brian should honestly resign for sending that.

Got caught up on this letter today and man, everything in that letter was even worse than Intel trying to cast shade at AMD without talking up their own product. Ray Tracing is great and I hope it becomes the next tech in all games eventually, just like Pixel/Vertex shaders back on the GF3 days became the shader cores of today. But to send a letter like that as if RT was the established tech being used from here on and anything else is against "Us Gamers" is a pretty big jump in whatever logic the writer was trying to use.

Either way to see Linus get as on fire about it as he did was pretty neat to see.

Linus and Steven from GN are some of the best ranters in tech youtube. GN Steve's takedown on MSI was great (they were basically pulling the same poo poo Nvidia just did) and he's about to do another one on Nvidia.

I unsubbed from Jayztwocents a while ago but I saw on reddit he posted a video about the whole Nvidia thing and apparently he was also blacklisted from getting 3090's and also unloaded on Nvidia. Nice to see tech youtube banding together.

well why not

Huge mistake to piss of youtube channels in the one market they have the most power. Seeing Linus get defensive of a smaller channel is always good. It's really lucky that he's such a good guy, considering how powerful he is now.

Nvidia walking it back (in as much as you can do) is not surprising, it's just bizarre how far up your own rear end to not foresee how this would have ended up after sending that email. Just stunning incompetence

You might be able to buy a super overpriced entire system with a 3080/3090 from origin, corsair, maingear, digital storm ect ect still.

But I would not be shocked to hear that the insane demand cleared them out too.

I'm interested to see how GN Steve follows up. On the one hand cutting out Nvidia isn't much of an option when you're a hardware reviewer, but on the other, even when walked back immediately it's a direct attack on the concept of journalistic integrity.

I just got done building a very nice rig for a Friend of a Friend and was lucky I bought most of the parts in early/mid November. Things like the Case/PSU/RAM are all out of stock or on backorder so even if you pay the scalper prices for the CPU/GPU on eBay, or do try to go with a Prebuilt, it may still not arrive until next year.

Hell even after paying scalper prices for the CPU/GPU, the final total for the build was still less or about on par with the price for an Origin PC and a few other prebuilds I had looked up for comparison. Go figure.

New email at 22mins

Nvidia is claiming the lockdown caused them to write an immoral email and that they secretly do love the press they just worded the email poorly.

Gosh you know Nvidia I really wanna take your word but this lockdown fatigue is just going to cause me to say terrible things about you.

Edit: Jesus after watching the whole thing nvidia looks way worse

They didn’t send him a 3060 TI and told steve they would get back to him about it multiple times before finally sending that email.

This email didn’t get written in one day by a tired employee.
