used to love guru3d but havent trusted hilberts reviews for years now.
if they're running their test bench systems with high performance power setting,which is kind of probable if not granted, and they did gaming tests instead of listening to music I'd find it probable they did not see this.
about G3D, I see they use two monitors, namely
Dell 3007WFP - QHD up to 2560x1600
ASUS PQ321 native 4K UHD Monitor at 3840 x 2160
for their tests. I don't suppose they optimize the settings and use vsync, they just max out every slider and let it run with vsync off, which I always found to produce minimal hitching and stutter. that paired with what I just wrote above makes it really hard.
the question for me is not about the reviews, it's whether nvidia themselves knew about this and went on with the launch regardless, without even blinking an eye. the answer is that they probably did.
