And yet they had to pay only the metaphorical pennies, in the US not even EU, for selling GTX 970 on fake specs.The source is Reddit, so you got a source about as good as /dev/null is a place to store your backups.
IIRC we had the exact same bullshit story last year, published unchecked, without any validation to speak off.
Is this the "hole before holiday season"-story now?
Will we get to read the same unchecked gargabe that may aswell have been writen by a 4chan troll next year again?
Nvidia knows where questionable legal turns into billion dollar fine by EU illegal.
They will be very carefuly navigating around that, by means of cooperating with software devs and slowly turning themself into a walled garden.
Intel has run into the EU on the competetive front a few times, and since then, the fines were significantly increased. They are not GDPR levels of "20,000,000€ or 4% of last years revenue, whatever is higher" levels, but slowly getting there.
Intel is yet to pay their EU fine, they're still dancing through the courts. And now we have some youtube channel fans, not you per se, crossing over here & pretending that the same sh!t doesn't happen just because they close their eyes & all is well in Lala land
One thing is for certain "whistle-blowers" would not come out seeing this kind of a blow-back, it only makes the point about Steve's next video wrt "humanity" even stronger!
