I'm interested in their low/mid range card though for laptops. Minecraft Raytracing looks really nice. Might be playing on one in spring or summer.

I don't have an hour+ to watch that vid. What's the story?

Nvidia did not want to supply samples to reviewer anymore unless they focus (more) on the raytracing capabilities which they are better at than amd.

Yeah, Nvidia sent an email to Hardware Unboxed telling them that, because they focussed more on standard rendering, and not the new modern raytracing, and other newer features, that they weren't going to be getting review samples any more.

But .. in a really nasty and bitter way, like stating how "users have to PAY for their cards", and how everyone from gamers, to tech reviewers are now focused on Raytracing and how that's "the future".

It's a typical "You reviewed us WRONG" sort of thing, and Linus has decided to take up the fight!

FWIW : it's only about the first 30 minutes or so of the video. But you get the gist fairly quickly!

OK. Cheers.

30mins can be a lifetime...

It can. I'm not usually one to "watch" podcasts, and tend to have them just as audio things. But this particular podcast ends up popping up in my YouTube feeds, more often than its visible in my Podcast-App list..!
