Cheap AliExpress Graphics Cards - SCAM???

Recommended Posts

The GTX 1060 5G exists, but iirc, it's exclusive to China and internet cafes, which is why you didn't find info about it on the North American site.

That's all over the Youtube comments too.

 

And the video, but I guess nobody watched that. 9_9

Came here for the actual aliexpress links.

I am displeased with you, people.

They don't get commission for AliExpress.  They do for Amazon and Newegg though.

They probably did. A video on youtube makes more money when it's 10 minutes or longer. The video is exactly 10 minutes because they presumably padded it to get to the 10 minutes mark for the better ad revenue

They mentioned it on the WAN Show.  I can't remember off the top of my head, but they don't get money.  I think it's got something to do with them not doing official Youtube ads.

Lots of things are country based, so a specific asian product, makes sense

I am the overseas representative of maxsun. I have been trying to contact them for a review. I am suprised LTT reviewed the products of maxsun.

You can just try to talk to a forum staff here.

Not all graphics cards from AliExpress are a scam!!!

I’d guessed that this was finally clear by now...

What is really cool with many Ebay scams and with other sites is that you can get the refund and then keep the cheap card sent to you. So it can end up being a win situation. : )

 

Yes, but then you are simply supporting the whole system.

The scammers have received their money and are probably already far gone by then. It is eBay itself that reimburses you with their own money.

I was thinking that it was supposed to be a GPU with 6GB but the 6th module didn't meet it's standards so they took it out and placed the 5GB card to China instead of throwing them out.

When GPU prices stayed high for so long, people started to get desperate... So we went shopping for cheap GPUs on AliExpress to see what happens!

 

 

Buy a GTX 1060 6GB for a not ridiculous sum:

On Amazon: http://geni.us/brR9s

On Newegg: http://geni.us/uujZ

 

Buy an actually warrantied GTX 1080 for less than we paid for this one:

On Amazon: http://geni.us/1YhzB

On Newegg: http://geni.us/zTV7HI

what benchmark software is that?
