Basically, the article lied about the value of RTX at the time. Let's face it, here we are five years later and it's still not worth it. Watch the Gamers Nexus video for more elaboration because it was five years ago and Steve's video was done when he still had it fresh in his mind.I don't really understand why this article is so bad other than the fact that the article is telling people to buy vastly overpriced 20 series gpus when (especially at the time) RTX isn't really viable enough to get most people to care. would you please explain why the article is so bad?
When that article came out, it was so bad that I swore to never read it again. I already had 30 years of PC building under my belt when that video came out. You develop an innate understanding of PC components and PC configuration from decades of experience, even if you never worked in the industry (and I did work for years at Tiger Direct). As a result, this video incurred the same reaction in me that I would have if a real media outlet tried to un-ironically defend the "logic" of the Flat-Earth movement.
The reaction that I and most tech experts had to this thinly-veiled commercial for nVidia was both negative and visceral. We were literally pissed off by it which is why I vividly remember its existence five years later.
I want to reiterate however, that none of this has anything to do with Jarred Walton. He did not write that article and his reviews have been very well done. It's unfair that something like this should reflect poorly on him because none of us have any control over things that we don't personally do.
