    Dennis was the funniest on the Linus Roast. Most of the staff was surprisingly funny and who ever wrote the jokes deserves acclaim. Unexpected treat.

  • bernhard85

    I dont add to the Facebook dumpster fire.. its a garbage platform for ppl to just air dirty laundry.. but love my SLtoos red haha

  • bernhard85

    With the way the world is today why would Intel think they could get away with any of the snake like things they keep doing. Idc which cpu company I use but wow they have tried some sneaky stuff and it blows up in their face everytime when will they just show the regular stats and continue making things better.. I mean not saying amd is better but atleast when ryzen first launched they were showing that Intel was still faster in per core performance..

  • Ray Ray
    Ray Ray

    they should have released the low end 20 series like the 2060, 2060 super and 2070 as gtx cards. like upgraded 1080s that were more energy efficient with more vida cores and faster vram. and then the 2070 super and higher with stable rtx for 1080 and maybe 1440 gaming. the 30 series really got the ray tracing down too bad there are literally none available.

    When you can't fix that CPU, be sure to bring it to NYC. I know it's not Apple, but let Louis Rossmann have a look, anyway. He might have some tools you can borrow. :)

    16:02 linus your dumb, people dont want to buy another 1050ti, they want the a new 30 series card. Nvidia should NOT make more 1050ti's they should make more 3060ti!! which cost less! and are WAY better

  • Dan Luckins
    Dan Luckins

    I just want a 3060ti is that so much to ask for? been waiting years to upgrade my 1050ti. Just take my money, give me 3060ti. Nvidia want some money? I have it right here!!!!! give me my 3060ti NOW!!!

    A 1050 ti is actually not enough were just too broke to buy a 1660

  • eugkra33

    Maybe CDPR bought their own game source code.

    Twitter isn't going to be able to ban paying customers on a whim. That's the big part of them offering paid access that you should be talking about.

  • ClyFi

    Its because of the new iPhone 13 not allowing any adds or tracking on their OS.

  • Chaos Ordeal

    Nvidia = idiots!! People aren't upgrading because there's nothing to upgrade to. Everyone who wants a 1050 already has one. MAKE MORE 30X0'S!! I literally have cash for a new video card camping out in my bank account waiting to find a gaddam card to purchase, and I will not pay a scalper a nickel.

  • Kai

    Really..1050ti or the 1060 is giving a good gaming experience in 2021? On what games? 1080p/1440p? What kind of fps? I am guessing Old esports on 1080p...ridiculous. And guess the price of the 1050Ti...its really a f** u gamers from nvidia. If Linus would have to use a 1050ti daily, this would not be the conclusion.

  • Samuel Lourenço

    NVidia could restart the production of Fermi GPUs, while they are at it. They were nice heaters. Even the GT610 was a nice heater. Now seriously, the GTX 1050Ti suffices for me, and I've bought it new more than an year ago, so, quite late. Even the GTX 750Ti is a good card for entry level gaming, for what I saw.

  • First Last
    First Last

    I don't know why people are complaining, the 1050ti is one of the best budget cards there is and the increased supply will lower prices even more in the future. Pascal as a whole was a great architecture.

  • Francis Chabot
    Francis Chabot

    Current price of the 1660 Super on Newegg.ca is almost 900$ CDN. So i would say old video cards are out of the picture too. Unless it's very old like dunno an ATI 9800 Pro maybe???

  • asuchemist

    Sold: 5700xt $600 3060ti $850 Kept: 3070 Not sure why people dog on the 3070.

    As a German, that sounded to me like "The WAN and only WÄÄÄN show" in the beginning. Nice pun :) Can't wait to see you frag that bed... XD 8:14 They seriously start producing 10 series again? Holy Plot of Princess Luna! Still running one BTW :D 9:38 So friggen epic! That never gets old :) 11:00 WAT? GP107? That's the friggen 1050, literally the best card that actually _IS_ available still :D - no thanks, I'll pass on that one, but maybe some of those will eventually surface on wish as 30 series, who knows XD 11:39 Still better than Intel's 14nm[insertinfiniteamountofplusseshere] 29:12 Well, it does suck if you need native x86 support as it's still Ay Ar Em. And to be fair, you probably won't usually see other than MacOS running on those. If that's not your flavour of beer, you will most likely not end up having an M1. 30:47 Exactly. And don't try to copy the others (Samsung getting rid of the removable battery, removing the headphone jack and SD slots and even the charger just as one example), make yourself something special with features others don't deliver (Again Samsung: Having an S-Pen included and DeX for example, or back in the day when their devices had a barometer, a hygrometer and thermometer in them) 31:08 Couldn't have nailed it better there XD 49:39 I had this happen upon me at amazon when buying a /me plush from a 3rd party for around $70 (well, MSRP of that thing was like 30ish, but well, collector's stuff you know and those were out of production for years already). The order got cancelled _AFTER_ I paid (got my money back though) and the exact same seller placed the exact same plush again for around $100 just a day after. What a prick! I hope he never managed to sell it... I mean, he had a price that was high already and I did already pay that. Imagine ordering a 3080 somewhere for 1.5k and then the reseller cancelling the order and replacing the card for 2k - just mental! :D 50:21 LMAO! :D 1:05:14 Exactly _NOT_ what you should do. Do you think a cloud gaming machine just runs on hot water? If everyone now suddenly is like "can't buy a graphics card, so I'll subscribe to some cloud gaming service", that literally will tighten the shortage even more as the big companies providing those services do need the graphics cards for it we all literally can't buy at the moment. 1:06:56 Just cute

  • RestoMog

    Maybe Nvidia and AMD should work on multi-gpu support at this point since we cant get a single new graphics card, maybe we are back to doubling up gpu's for performance.

    Still rocking a 3-year-old RX570. I kept my previous GTX750 for about 4 or 5 years. So, all this is good news for those of us who haven't got bottomless pockets. No new graphics cards = developers not rushing to push the boundaries and, by extension, the minimum spec for their games ever higher.

    Clients usually will brief agencies on what they want in their marketing/ads, if the idea was bad it usually came from the client, agencies only work with what they get, agencies may come up with great ideas, but clients will always want their way and agencies cave in and give in to the clients, and when the ad goes out and the response is bad, or the ceo hates it, guess who gets the blame

  • hanunija

    The Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon and will give everyone the reward they deserve. Repent to God and Christ and confess and repent of your sins! Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior! Forgive one another and love one another! Read the Bible and learn to live as pleases God and Christ!

    why did MS kill off the WEI rating in Win 10 ? That was how you compared actual performance between models. Also, even if every claim from Intel was correct in the M1 vs i7 comparo, Intel had to use a higher end i7 against a higher mhz i3 price point cpu in the M1. The M1 is a entry level CPU for the most part and Intel needed to bring out a i7 to beat it. I work on computers, I rarely see i7's and when I do, they are mostly 1st and 2nd gen chips in Laptops. I see mostly sub 2 ghz i3s and i5s. The M1 smokes those chips. I still use an Intel iMac and Macbook Pro due to older software that won't run on the OS higher than 10.14, but when I can't use them for Internet stuff in the future, I will get a M chip and use my 27" as the display for it. ( using the TB port as an input. )

    I tried to spec out a build with something like 3600X and something at least 1650 Super for school work (audio technician) and some video editing but failed because of lack of even that gpu at a reasonable price and ran into a Lenovo G5 prebuilt 3600 with 1650 Super at a good discount.. phew.. ($780 over the counter at a local store in Sweden)

    Like, why can't they pump out like 1660 Ti's or 1650's? 1660 Ti's were good stuff, price-to-performance. Bought mine for like $250 on sale a couple years back. Now they're selling for like $500, which is ridiculous. Why can't they just like pump out more of those, en masse?

    I always wondered if Linus thought of himself as marrying early. For his cohort he certainly did, he also lucked out to find someone so compatible. It always feels like Linus is rushing though life trying to do as much as he can. No wonder he’s thinking of retiring, to slow down a bit.

    In Denmark there is like Nothing to buy. well, if you are looking for a 710 or 1030 you are in luck, the market is flooded with em. And ofc. my 1060 3gb died on me a few days ago. I got lucky and found a prebuilt with a 6gb version in it, and got it for cheap. So now I am ready for another year without any stock. Damn you, both Nvidia And AMD.

    I have a GTX 1050 ti and I am not planning on upgrading any time soon anyway. I still have a LOT of games to catch up on steam and a big free game backlog on epic. Most people in my region still consider PS2 as a premium console (technically it is since mobile gaming is the majority here and anything from 90s on pc and console is better than the cancerous mobile gaming trend).
