Big shout out to MSI for sponsoring this video! Check out all of their products we used down below.
PCI Express gen 4 has been around for over a year and a half now - But it hasn’t really made much of a difference… Does that change with Ryzen 5000, RTX 3000, and Radeon 6000?

  • Upgrading a desktop is not pointless... ...but upgrading as often as new generations of hardware are released, that is most definitely pointless for the vast majority of users. Yearly upgrades? Get out. I would love to see an estimate of how much resources were wasted world-wide by gamers buying new hardware pointlessly.

  • As someone with a 1080Ti... I see no reason to upgrade unless it's a 3080 MINIMUM. Everything else is not enough of a performance increase to justify. That's without even taking into consideration the inflated prices; That's just the nail in the coffin. No yeah; I think I'll be fine. Maybe I can get a good used 3080 in a year or two.

It hits me in the face Lambo because I know this is your way of playing nice when what you really wants to do is put Scalpercorp on ice. Lambo I'm IEEE , take short walk with me , I know what you're really after , performance through the rafter , filling us with joy and laughter , well played.

  • CS:GO has smaller texture packages.. There's a lot less clutter, no hair movements, no large amounts of clutter on the screen that moves around, leafs, and whatnot.. So it is, essentially, a lot better at just moving those textures and inputs around, if it just gets more space to do it in.

  • My theory is, it’s not that cs:go utilizes the lanes well, it’s just that you’re able to hit such high frames due to its low demand that in order to hit those 400+ frame rates, you’re transferring so much more data per second.

  • A *theory* is an idea that is well understood and supported by data. It's as close as science gets to "fact" or "truth". You're talking about a hypothesis. I understand that colloquially, theory is used in place of the word hypothesis, but to literally say "A theory is just a theory" is to completely ignore the primary meaning of the word theory.
