Corsair publicly apologized after an “employee” was spotted last week calling reviews of the latest RTX 4090 graphics cards — by both. Nexus Gamers and Guru3D– “totally bullshit”.

The drama arose last week when the hardware channel was extremely popular Nexus Gamers posted a review (and some benchmarks) of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition. In that video they say that just plugging in three of the card’s four cables (in case your PSU for whatever reason only has room for three 8-pin connections) will lock you in at 100% performance and only Plugging in all four will allow you to overclock the card. Guru3D’s reviews say many of the same things.

Not long after, comments about Discord left by a Corsair employee went viral. They called both Nexus Gamers and Guru3D’s claims “totally bullshit” and “misinformation”, while also saying that both users and the “press” are “confused” about the card’s power and overclocking claims. Full comments, as shared by Nexus Gamersread:

QUESTION: Has anyone else seen misinformation about the magical 600W unlocking and sensing latches from anyone other than GamersNexus and Guru3D or just those two sites? I need to throw Nvidia a few links showing them how the users…and the press… are confused about their smart sense latches.

Total bullshit and they don’t even realize it. Right. The adapter has two induction wires. Right. The card works with only a touch cord attached. That’s because it’s a 450W card. It’s not because it has the ability to ‘unlock’ which requires a second sense wire.

Cards simply do not know. It’s not smart that way. It only looks for a sense latch.

In a follow-up video, Nexus Gamers address those “bullshit” claims:

While employee comments aren’t exactly professional, a company representative’s ramblings about members of the media are, as we all bet, nothing new. However, what caused Corsair to publicly back this up was the fact…Nexus Gamers and Guru3D was correct. At some point – their claim only applies to Nvidia’s own 4090 cables, not cables made by third parties like ASUS or Corsair, which may explain the confusion here – but in terms of Technically correct.

Prompted Corsair to issue a formal apology on the company’s social media, which went so far as to call the employee’s remarks an “outrage”:

We are aware that a member of Corsair staff recently made one-sided and inaccurate comments about Gamers Nexus aAnd Guru3D’s understanding of the Nvidia RTX 4090 power connector.

These comments do not represent Corsair as a company, and we regret both the form and content of personal outbursts.

We have worked with both Nexus and Guru3D Gamers for many years and appreciate both their professionalism and technical ability.

We deeply apologize for our employees’ inappropriate behavior and will take steps internally to remind our team of the high standards we hold for them when interacting with the media and people. end use.

For their part, Nexus Gamers has accepted the apology and is ready to “move forward”:

While Guru3D’s EIC Hilbert Hagedoorn speak “Guys, that’s the website; everyone has an opinion. He was wrong, sorry for that, and for me, that’s the end of this story.”

I am very funny when these companies continue shooting at Nexus Gamers when their videos become completely accurate! If you’re more technical minded and want a more detailed explanation of what exactly led to all of this—it’s really a small detail in the larger scheme of things—The best run I found is here.
