    My local microcenter has the 5800x in stock again. Internally debating on going with a 5800x and putting the $100 towards 4000mhz ram instead.

    Hi Steve,

    We've reached a critical juncture in the adoption of ray tracing and it has gained industry-wide support from top titles, developers, game engines, APIs, consoles and GPUs.

    As you know Nvidia is all in for ray tracing. RT is important and core to the future of gaming, but it's also one part of our focused R&D efforts on revolutionizing video games and creating a better experience for gamers.

    This philosophy is also reflected in developing technologies such as DLSS, reflex and broadcast that offer immense value to customers who are purchasing a GPU. They don't get free GPUs, they work hard for their money, and they keep their GPUs from multiple years.

    Despite all this progress, your GPU reviews and recommendations have continued to focus singularly on rasterization performance and you have largely discounted all of the other technologies we offer gamers.

    It is very clear from your community commentary that you do not see things the same way that we, gamers, and the rest of the industry do. Our founder's editions boards and other Nvidia products are being allocated to media outlets that recognize the changing landscape of gaming and the features that are important to gamers and anyone buying a GPU today. Be it for gaming, content creation, or studio and streaming.

    Hardware Unboxed should continue to work with our add-in card partners to secure GPUs to review. Of course you will still have access to obtain pre-release drivers and press materials, that won't change. We are open to revisiting this in the future should your editorial direction change.

    Bryan Del Rizzo

    Director of Global PR, GeForce

    Jeez!
    All the TechTubers and Tech websites are talking about the beef between Hardware Unboxed and Nvidia.
    If I was Steve from Hardware Unboxed, I would just email back to Nvidia: "Ok keep your founders edition cards, they suck at cooling anyhow and board partner cards like EVGA or ASUS blow your FE cards away... using your GPUs"

    Fe cards are only(at least used to be) a good cheaper alternative for those who water-cooled anyhow, as the FE coolers suck.

    Graphically Challenged, and Linus, had their say too.
