    i can say kurz gesagt cuz im german Xddd

  • Raymond Lam

    I ordered Bluedio TM headphone from Bludio company on AliExpress. I received a dead headphone, nothing working at all. I requested for a full refund and prepaid return shipping label but Bluedio refused to refund the full amount instead offered me $5 refund and kept the dead headphone. This is unethical business practice if you understand what I mean. I tried to open dispute and this whole process was a joke. AliExpress has no control of sellers on their website. They asked me to deal with sellers directly but when sellers not respond to dispute, they are on sellers side and they always favour sellers over buyers. Don't buy anything from AliExpress, it's not worth the hassles.

    Linus they stoped the production of the gtx 1060 with 5gb

  • weihao lee

    GTX1060 5g is only supplied to Internet cafes in China, those cards are banned from mining and retailing. Therefore, they are cheaper than the normal 1060, which is overpriced under the bit-coin rush.However, you can still buy some of them online. You know, margin always finds its way.

  • Pipee Papofckgug

    so you start the video with some sponsor blah blah, and you end it with MORE sponsor blah blah? Alright...

    Debroglie doesn't sound very good? OMG. It's like naming your car TESLA!!Louis Victor Pierre Raymond de Broglie, duke de Broglie (/dəˈbrɔɪ/; French: [dəbʁɔj][1][2] or [dəbʁœj] (About this sound listen); 15 August 1892 – 19 March 1987)[3] was a French physicist who made groundbreaking contributions to quantum theory. In his 1924 PhD thesis he postulated the wave nature of electrons and suggested that all matter has wave properties. This concept is known as the de Broglie hypothesis, an example of wave–particle duality, and forms a central part of the theory of quantum mechanics.

    Nvidia makes 5GB 1060... But only for internet cafés...

  • Jakob Mannheim

    AliExpress...looks for things to buywtf, deliverytime over 9000 D:(it would have taken the product 20 to 58 days to arrive)

    This guy look and sounds like the worm

  • Faldegast

    Finding alternative supplies of GPU:s would be a lot more fun if there was more than two manufacturers of the actual processors. And more than one manufacturer of the memory.This is why I love buying ARM based stuff and bitcoin miners. When there are something new at such markets, it's something new.

  • Etnaa flonne
