    What an odd thing to be discussing on an LTT video.
     
    I'm not familiar with Canada OH&S so I'm not going to comment on any of that.
    I also noticed the mast being raised in the video and thought it was odd, since it looked like they were in front of the warehouse where there wouldn't be anything for them to lift there. I figured that the operator (Matias?) was just doing pre-operations checklist which should include fully extending the mast and full range of tilt and slide motions so I didn't think much of it. The operator was in control of the vehicle so the mast being raised isn't really that much of a concern. I did notice that he lowered it before moving the forklift which was the right thing to do. If he had driven backwards over the cable with the mast still raised it would have been an issue. If the forklift had been parked like that and left unattended with the mast raised then that would be a huge safety violation. Always park with the forks angled slightly forward and flat against the ground. Linus did seem to be too close and for safety LMG should have an exclusion zone around forklifts when in use. Pretend the forklift has COVID and keep your distance.

    Why were the forks in the air at 7:40? They really shouldn't be, not with people actively walking around them.

    Improves products? Yes, also Tesla has technically done that too slowly upgrading their vehicles. Improves reasons to actually buy their products and support the company? Not so much.

    Yea that can be fixed via software, the issue is North American governments are wimps. Ontario shot down RTR last year, currently the RTR laws in many places are lacking in NA. Till that changes buying a Tesla vs a full EV (or any car for that matter) from Ford, DC, Chevy or anyone won't make a difference. Once laws force change then change will happen. In the US they have it for phones and other devices but not for cars really.

    I never want to hear budget and $1000 for a computer together being used in the same context again. Title has it right, Linus had it all wrong.
     
    Also, also 5700 XT is PCI 4 compatible... Not like it can use it but it has it.
    Equally I find it funny how Linus is playing nice towards the 5700 XT but bashed on AMDs 6000 series.

    No worries, I'll take part of that blame as I've been guilty of erecting these walls of text in this thread. Could be worse, we could send each other a scathing email and threaten to revoke each others posting privileges over our perceived disagreements, lol.

    Then LTT Jay and anyone who called out nvidia for said practices should all die channel wise then with that logic. My point was they can get away with it once maybe 2 times or indefinitely because it isn't "their" choice nvidia wants to force them into submission.
     
    Besides nothing is stopping them from doing a proper review on a later date with a free AIO or bought unit, you know the ones us normies will be buying, but the bad press on release day will hurt nvidia more than said channel, esp when in the past they were given samples to test. All a channel needs to do is state "nvidia does not care about you (their viewers) enough to send us a card to fairly test for release day where in the past they have, therefore we (the channel) can not blindly suggest you to go out and buy this card instead here are a list of cards that we know are good. Once we (the channel) get our hands on the card we will test it, however that may be weeks from now and you the viewer can freely watch one of many other creators reviews about the card if you wish to know how it preforms today. We care greatly about our viewers and community, however nvidia has made it quite clear to us (the channel) that they do not."
     
    That won't hurt any channel in the same way it will hurt nvidia, like I said if nvidia doesn't send a card because the channel thinks RT isn't worth a penny right now whereas if they change their words and say it's the best feature and therefore would get a card by stating such, the hate is put onto nvidia for removing the channels right to talk about a product freely w/o being pressured for a false or misleading review, which is illegal in the USA, and likely also illegal in Australia. That letter even tho it has been recanted could run nvidia into legal troubles because they are trying to force an opinion on someone during a review, which if HWUs community is primarily US nvidia is literally breaking the US law. It's the same reason why LTT complies with US laws even tho "they don't have too", because nothing is stopping the US from suing them which can prevent travel to the US (one can be detained at the boarder if you fail to show up in court). Claim BS on that? Well there is currently living proof in BC right now, her name is called Meng Wanzhou.

    How am I not being reasonable, Nvidia can send out as many samples as they wish and 100% have the capability to do so. They particularly do have this capability even more so now that they are a retailer for their own products and have global supply chain shipping for that.
     
    How is it you somehow think review samples are limited? They are only limited in by way of how many Nvidia wishes to send out. If Nvidia wants to send out 100% of their entire stock as review samples they could do that, they won't but they could.
     
    What is unreasonable is implying that there is an infinite number of reviewers, in particular that Nvidia would actually consider to work with. How many reviewers do you actually think there are globally? A tiny fraction compared to global stock, it's so small it's inconsequential. Having the required staffing resources to support these reviewers is a much bigger factor than the number of graphics cards and ability to ship them to those reviewers.
     
     
    You only think it was not fair because you value RT higher than many other people do and as I stated so few people actually buy solely on the basis of RT right now and even when weighing it in to the purchase decision it is little more than "generally how good is it". So tell me how did you not get a sense of the performance increase of RT during the Hardware Unboxed review? You were shown data of a game and could see how much improvement there was. Now I understand you wanted to see more games but your assumption there was that the percentage improvement from the last generation might be different on different games, which could very well be the case or it may not.
     
    The problem is it comes back to how much time a reviewer has, Hardware Unboxed chooses to test a larger number of games than many other reviewers to get a stronger more statically significant average performance across the sample size. So if there isn't any signs that there is a great difference between games for this improvement and their audience does not significantly value the RT performance of products yet this is the content that will always be cut when time constrained.
     
    It is not fair of you to demand that a reviewer do more than what is possible in the given time and to demand something that so few care about as much as you do. If you want to see a more RT focused review then you can go find one, Hardware Unboxed is not obligated to tailor their review to you and they will monitor their audience to see what the trends are and cater to that.
     
    Like i said they can only decide on what they wish to market and push, that does not actually make them selling point. Nvidia could paint their cards green and push that in their marketing but that in no way makes it a selling point of the product, not unless the buyer likes green and that only makes it a positive selling point to that person. Unless the majority of customers buy cards happen to all like the colour green then it is not a selling point of the product no matter how much money Nvidia puts in to marketing the fact that it is green.
     
    Correct, the only two that I already gave you. What you were talking about and probably still are is a sponsorship video which is not a review. Please do not start confusing sponsored content and sponsorship deals with product reviews, this is already happening and causes real problems.
     
    Some companies would very much love to control the narrative and presentation around their products and have already started taking measures to do just that and such behavior has no place in product reviews.
     
    That is the risk companies agree to when it comes to reviews, it could be negative. Companies do not have an inherent right to positive reviews of their product from reviewers, only fairness. What value would reviews have if all of them were always positive? How does that help the consumer?

    I would say a solid 90% or more of gamers are more than willing to ignore it for another 5-10 years, if they could think for themselves that is. Also while very unlikely AMD could just pull a fast one underneath nvidia next year or in 2022 and beat them in RT. Overall investing today in a RT card for RT at non DLSS (or alike) setup is a waste of money, heck it's still a waste of money because getting one today you know full well there are going to be gains of 20-50% maybe even 150% (who knows, they made the 2080 Ti a 3070) in a year or 2. I personally don't want a upscaled game , I would love RT but I'm being realistic. That's why I don't like Linus's take on AMDs first attempt making it seem like they shouldn't have bothered or done more to catch up to nvidia, he can't be simply happy they finally have a card that can compete in almost every aspect that most people care about and for the most part cheaper than nvidia?
     
    24 titles that can play with RT enabled, with 10 upcoming, not including 2 Chinese/Japanese based MMORPG(?) games. RT right now literally falls under the who cares category because you can't play it (less Quake, a 23 year old game) at a consistent frame rate that goes past 60fps all the time w/o up scaling. If you are going to upscale, might as well save your money and just buy a 1080 or 1440 monitor instead, and with that money saved you might even be able to buy a better card that would work even better. I'm with Linus RT is the future, however PhysX was supposed to have been the future as well, where is that now? 40 titles(ish)? Banking on a specific feature and buying into it now because said card has it and not looking at every aspect of the cards performance is a very bad idea, unless you plan on playing only RT titles, but what about next years titles? Do you know they will work with your card or will you need to go out and get a new one for RT for them? Simply put what nvidia has done is made themselves like Tesla in hardware upgrades, longer you wait the more complete of a car you get.
     
    I love nvidia, but I'll jump to AMD if they provide a better bang for the buck. Not necessarily best performance/out preforming, but if they do 5% worst for 5-10% less the nvidia card they've got me instead of nvidia, and that's how I bought the 5700XT over nvidia, it was cheaper, RT is a waste right now (even in the 3000 series) so I went for price to performance.
