    Interesting... well, too bad we lose another reviewer tbh, but not much to be done about it.
    I do have to admit though, I wasn't a regular on their site.

    I don´t know about you guys but this kinda of moves makes me feel uneasy about the unbiased/biased stance of tech sites and their reviewers. In the back of my mind there´s always this feeling that the persons had already agreed some type of compromise with the companies they are reviewing their products and a couple of years after they finally leave for those same companies... And of course the reviews about those products are subjected to special treatment from them...
    Hilbert please tell me you are not leaving Guru3d for Nvidia or something like that!...

    The written tech media is being displaced by youtubers. Intel is looking to pick these people up because they are in-tune with the community - so they know what will go over well and won't.

    IMO Kyle / Hardocp has always been a reference for non biased opinions about hardware. He was not afraid to piss off Nvidia or intel (even AMD) when they asked for it! As stated above they were my main source of info for quality PSUs reviews. Glad for him though. Luckly we still have Hilbert and Guru3d. ;-).

    At least he's being honest about why he's going and what he's going to do.

    It would be ironic if they did.



    For example. If Hilbert gave up on Guru3D you'd rather him just vanish instead of telling us why? I think I can speak for many here, we'd like to know.

    This guy did an outstanding job. I give him credit for this. His new job is pretty close to be the same but on the other side of the fence. ;-)
