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.

Links to Amazon and Newegg are typically monetized on our channel (affiliate links) and may return a commission of sales to us from the retailer. This is unrelated to the product manufacturer. Any advertisements or sponsorships are disclosed within the video ("this video is brought to you by") and above the fold in the description. We do not ever produce paid content or "sponsored content" (meaning that the content is our idea and is not funded externally aside from whatever ad placement is in the beginning) and we do not ever charge manufacturers for coverage.
