And what about the temps? Hell, you go through the trouble of ordering this stuff from half a world away for a half-assed benchmark vid? Seriously, if you're wasting a good amount of time of your video to complain about the cooler design then actually measure its efficiency. It would have also been cool if you had measured the cards' performance with their VRAM maxed out to see whether they cheaped out on the last few chips. And what about that taped SLI-port that you totally ignored?

linus did you not know about asian exclusive graphics cards? do you honestly expect us to believe that? AMD and NVIDIA card makers have been doing that for DECADES. and AMD and Nvidia have also been producing exclusive card types such as the hd 3810, and the jetway gtx 680 captains edition

you can pay 50% price to get 90% performance from chinese product vs great brand. this is call price performance, the reason you can get scam is you only want to pay 10% price. it is not their scam, but your stupid. over. (not relate to this video, i am just talking about the scam)

There's a 5GB Quadro P2000 that uses the same GP106 as the 1060 cards, but with 1024 CUDA cores. It also has a 160-bit bus. So Nvidia making an Asia-specific SKU isn't all that shocking.

“Warranty void by tear or damage” Warranty? What warranty do you get on AliExpress? You pay a hundred USD for shipping single way (whether the actual shipping charge is a hundred, or it’s free shipping and they just artificially inflate the flat price by another hundred)... I’d love to see a video of someone SUCCESSFULLY completing a warranty claim for electronics via AliExpress that doesn’t end up costing them 100-200 in the end...

So much bs talked about hardware... about cooling... about how 'special' the big-name usa garbage is! Dude, ALL your hardware is made in China so why should some cards made in small numbers from available parts IN CHINA by small manufacturers be any different than some overpriced excrement with usa labels from 'american' manufacturers be that much different? China turns out ONE MILLION ENGINEERS per year... and all those go on to work in China in their export markets. Bud, there's a reason the usa is being pissed on by China and the usa is headed for a civil war while China is upset over its lowly *10% pa growth!* X^)

I went to a internet caffé thing, not being sure if it was one, asked if it was a lan caffé, might had been the other way around with the names, and he was borderline offended, and kinda made fun of me and "corrected" me, as if the only word for it is internet caffé. Or as if the other does not exist, now that I think about it I think I said internet caffé, and he said something else.. anyways didn't see any costumers, wonder why with has attitude, on an airport no less with ppl from other places ..

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.

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.

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.

weihao lee (10 days ago)
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.
