    Show Notes

    Techtainment and the 2080Ti
    Dennis admits that while hardware is his passion there are times when things just baffle him including when Techsites, YouTube channels and Techutainment (or Techtainment) channels create drama purely for the views.  Some of these are legit fun while others are witch hunts for things that simply don’t exists.  On top of that you get trolling subscribers driving what is discussed and it really becomes nothing more than fishing for views and attempts to exploit how YouTube ranks videos.

    It is very well known that “popular” videos will garner all the attention and unless someone calls them on something bad in the video it will simply continue. 

    Well, there was a rumor floating around that “someone” killed a RTX 2080 Ti and lived to tell the tale.  Sadly they were not taken to jail but instead a series of videos were released striking fear into consumers thinking their RTX 2080 Ti would not only stop working but would only sent you up for 10 years, have the bank seize your house and bankrupt your brother-in-laws tractor dealership.

    We, on the other hand, don’t believe it and remain firm in saying. Don’t buy a founders edition card, they are basic AF.  Instead pick up a shiny factor “hot clocked” card with a custom PCB.  If the PCB is not custom you are buying a Basic AF reference PCB, your friends will laugh and you’ll be directly supporting techtainment fear mongering.
