There are so many websites looking for clicks by posting leaks with limited fact checking, VideoCardz being one of them, I find it inane to use them as a source for constructing some conspiracy of Nvidia playing mindgames to build hype.


It's trivial to fake charts like above. What makes you so convinced that Gainward is the source for that? They designed a card around a GPU core they didn't know the specs of? Maybe a TrUsTeD sOuRcE forged it and sent it to VideoCardz.


And the above journo comment could refer to details they did get right - GDDR6X, TDP and amount of VRAM.

It was the entire spec. Maybe many sites deleted their posts with red faces after? IDK.

I have been following this to the dot. Something many people with better things to do have not. Yeah I have seen many fake leaks, but my sources usually told me they were fake and stupid as soon as I posted them.

That leak was done by Nvidia. If you don't believe it? fair enough.

I agree. Nvidia make great products that consumers generally appreciate and that speak for themselves. Yet Nvidia feel they have to speak for them, and sometimes those words are not entirely accurate. Same goes for AMD. I like AMD more though. Maybe because they're the underdog, but maybe it's something more.

I love AMD. I can't stand RTG. Lisa Su? my hero. Seriously I think she's freakin amazing.

Thankfully she seems to have reined in RTG a bit and they haven't been shouting poo. So, if big Navi is even half reasonable then like the original Polaris launch I think it will be a success.

But yeah, I just don't understand why Nvidia feel the need to be so aggressive and pushy. I mean, I use three Nvidia GPUs ffs. They sold themselves, even the overpriced one.
