Newegg's Misleading GPU Purge: JustGPU "Benchmarks"



Episode Title: "Newegg's Misleading GPU Purge: JustGPU "Benchmarks""
Content: Sponsor: be quiet!'s Silent Base 802 https://geni.us/DaGYu Newegg launched a new website - JustGPU - to try and dump its video card inventory. Unfortunately, the website is filled with misleading "benchmarks" that are all seemingly made up. In fact, Newegg goes so far as saying they're basically fake, but stops short of specifying to what extent. The website acts like any number of other affiliate spam websites with fake charts and "data" to try and lead a purchase based on some random attributes (like core count), but stops short of actually helping anyone. This is our look at JustGPU.
