I still have a TNT, Geforce 6800, Geforce 8800, and a Geforce 256 DDR in my collection. Lots of other ones too, but can't be a "retro" computer guy without these classics!
My current collection doesn't reflect what I've had in total over the years, some cards were sold to fund the next ones, but a brief snapshot of some ones I've owned and loved along the way (only mentioning Nvidia ones in this thread), with many more not listed for brevity;

MX440 pci
6800 Ultra
8800GTX
GTX295
GTX 260 core 216, 1792mb x2 in SLi
GTX570
GTX670
GTX970
GTX1080
RTX3080

Edit, and the brilliant X1 in my 2019 Shield Pro, damn that thing is a beast of a smart TV unit.

First, no. We were not paid to write this article or any other article about Nvidia.
First, I didnt say or mentioned that you were paid, I simply asked about calling them out on their anti-competitive and anti-consumer practices.
That has nothing to do with either getting paid, or your disgust with a given company or their practices.
Read above and my "disgust" has been documented by many other customers, but rarely by any sites like this, because they are scared of nvidia retaliation , so its not simply something personal.
which is borderline trolling.
Funny, when I call out someone in here with the word "trolling" my post always get deleted, yet here you are accusing me of such thing without being the case.

You will have to be more specific.
Glad you mentioned that, how about nvidia using their drivers to disable your already purchased GPU if it detected an ATI/AMD card in the same system?

Of course, its hard to find more, since none of the big tech sites dared in saying a word, but here is one link for your upcoming article: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforc...-disables-physx-when-ati-card-is-present-in-/

Or including telemetry on their drivers?


Or forcing their customers to have a nvidia account just to get drivers update notifications?



We have covered the chip shortage. We have called them out for BS products when we've found that to be the case. And we've tried to put some light on the reasons for price gouging. Is that it? We're also ready to give a good product a positive review. TechSpot has been around for over 20 years now, we have a long-standing track record.
Those are ok examples, how about calling them out on how every time they release some "magical tech" its always with bad intentions towards the industry and their customers, since everything they release is a way to lock you into their hardware, like the magical DLSS, Physx back in the day, GameWorks, etc?

At this point, that should be the opening of every article that is about a nvidia product.

AMD's fandom has turned very toxic over the years.
Funny, I would say the same thing about Nvidia fans.

Need example? They are so petty that they are doing their darnest to make r/AMD useless to anyone that likes the sub.

Or here, your comment is a perfect example, since all you think that I am is an AMD fanboy, I am not, I simply hate nvidia anticonsumer practices.

My first GeForce was 256 SDR. Next, 2 MX400, 2 Pro, 4 4400, FX5900XT, 670, 980 and 2 1080's. The rest of the time I used Monster 2, Radeons 4870 and 6870. And now a Radeon 6900XT. That's all my graphics card history :)
My first "GPU" was a Diamond Speedstar, then plenty of Matrox, Rendition Verite, S3, Nvidia, ATI and like you, waiting on a 6900xt to replace my gtx 970.

I admire your ability to "let go" of older things as it makes sense to do so.
I am a bit of a tech hoarder myself :cool:

So what you are saying is your many AMD-meme gif posts are not in fact juvenile, but valuable consumer advocacy?

The memes are simply a humor thing that its supposed to bring a smile to the ones not heavily invested in blindly worshipping a company, whom has a tendency to get triggered and post responses as a good white knight would....

Fond memories of playing hours & hours of Call Of Duty 1 & 2 multiplayer with a 6800GT.

M1 Garand, Lee Enfield, Mosin Nagant & Kar 98 'Rifle Only' servers were amazing, creeping around the maps looking for those skilled single shot kills.

INDEED! It's very likely you played on an iX server - we were one of the first to mod COD1 & 2.
