Bad Behaviour?

UK retailer Overclockers this time last year were busy taking pre-orders for 3080 and 3090 GPU, fast forward a year and there are folk still waiting, they now have a lot of 3080's in stock but because they are LHR versions they are saying that that is a different product than that which folk paid for last year and aren't honouring their pre orders. So basically Overclockers are using a measure that Nvidia took to help get cards in gamers hands as a reason to not honour their pre-sales, and obviously folk who have been waiting all year are getting a tad salty. What does everyone think, bad behaviour or warranted? PS their graphics card section of their forum is a good read ATM, for all the wrong reasons, lol.

It's hilarious anybody actually thinks Nvidia cared about getting cards in gamers hands.

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy.

Sure, business as usual. 

 

Many, if not overwhelming majority of companies will screwing over their customers if they think they can make a quick buck, if they think the possible repercussions are acceptable, its a calculated risk, and they will do it without remorse in a heart beat.

 

AMD, Intel and Nvidia are seasoned pros.

IKR, the last year has been a real eye opener, I mean I sort of hope Intel discrete GPU's will shake things up a bit, but Intel as just as bad as the other 2, it could be worse we could be dealing with Apple, lol.
