          I heard from PS boys that PS4 is the mos powerful console. They say it can even beat 2080 Ti in power (sold units).

                Linus, just an idea for a video, would it be possible in someway to build a powerful machine and somehow download on it's own boot drive, xbox software. That way you could have your pc and console in the same machine and just decide which one you use in the BIOs?

                                        But according to Aaron Greenburg of Microsoft, One X is the console to end the console cycle....... But you just referred to the One X, basically as an antique. You see, when Ken Kutaragi was around, there was innovation in hardware. His consoles lasted up to ten years and PCs were trying to keep up with consoles, now all consoles are the same boring or of date before ya know it PCs because they're off the shelf. See what happens when you scare off innovators?

                                          I guess every gaming console is just a pc in a case now, but i'm so fed up with China's manipulating and deceiving tactics. They (fairly high percentage, i think) just don't give a shit.

                                              The Chinese would steal candies from babies.
                                              In a way they already did and far worse when they poisoned all those babies and puppies with their toxic baby and dog foods just to make a few extra pennies on each can.

                                                  Just by reading the amount of cores and threads that are displayed in task manager you were able to tell it was a Ryzen processor? How did you know that before you opened CPU-Z to see the actual model of the CPU, that's freaky man.

The light behind Linus's TV makes it look more "floaty" than mine. Edit - probably because his is a 65 and I have a 55.
