I just don't know what that smilie means, don't recall seeing it before.
So what does it mean? lol

Anyway, their really should have been an official note on the AT page about it, especially when he said in an earlier article that he would be reviewing it on release date.

They need to hire another reviewer or have some of the SSD, laptop guys do it. AT has been terrible with GPU reviews and this isn't even anything new, its been going on for the past 3-4 years now!
This site really went downhill after anand left!
You mean before you joined? Your math is "funny".

Ryan posts much more on other boards than here. I get the impression he doesn’t like the atmosphere here.
Picked up quite a bit more than the usual tech info in your first week as a member, hmm? lol...

He may have just gotten an account to try to figure out why there weren't any reviews. No other site has in depth reviews like Anandtech, so when they are missing it, people try to find out if they are still doing them. In this case it appears this is a temporary outage, but I don't know.

I get that, I just thought it read funny as if he were a 20 year veteran member making declarations.
A claim that something has "gone downhill" before you even joined is just a bit silly imho.

my bad.

I wasn’t aware that my knowledge of who posts at other forums is based upon how long I’ve been registered at this forum.

Please advise me on how long I will have to be registered here before my tech info will be “usual”. Thanks!

Your facetiousness is cute.

That's subjective opinion more than factual info about places people post. You are claiming to know why...have you spoken to Ryan? Can you quote him saying as much elsewhere? Or are you just making shit up? :rolleyes:

Don't forget it's easy to see someone's post history, Ryan hasn't posted since May, and that was a handful of times, once in 2019 and it seems he was last a regular in spring 2018, with that account anyway. Still, post counts don't relate to GPU reviews.

Why are we whining about where and when he posts? Regardless of where he does, that's time not working on the upcoming GPU review and deep dive! We should all strive to be as productive.

The AT reviews are certainly special though. This isn't the only forum that's noted the absence and commented on the caliber of the reviews by Ryan and other members of the AT staff.

Rather a wide sweeping comment seeing as I wasn't 'whining' about his posting and I mentioned posting had nothing to do with reviews :p.

I wasn't referring to you, but there have been some other posts that seem to be grumbling about Ryan not posting here among other things.

Apple? Meh :p

Looking forward to any real reviews though ;)

-Hey I'll take what I can get.

Its also kinda wild to have this highly performant 3rd player sort of come out of nowhere. We're all talking about intel entering the fray and apple is releasing some incredibly built out hardware (on paper) in their closed ecosystem.

Its not for me due to the closed ecosystem, but its interesting nonetheless.
