                                  I do PCB designing and i really got to give credit.. that takes a lot of research to do it right... Assuming they do it right.. RnD is usually overlooked

                                        Sometimes you make studies for years to make a premieum thing, but once you finish the work you will notuce that the differnce is nonsense between this premium thing and another normql thing that simebody else has made it easily without the deep and smart searching along with unique testing, this is the story between AMD and NVIDIA adaptive sync, I am pretty sure that nvidia is the premium choice while AMD is the other normal or budget choice, but because I love and apperciate premium work I love nvidia technologies pretty much over AMD, even if G-sync can deliver the same experience that AMD's FreeSync do, but far more expensive, I still prefer nvidias technology as tge premium choice :)
                                        Great job from nvidia's engineers

                                                  The setups all look kinda janky, like a panel could be failed because someone sneezed or an aeroplane flew by a bit low. It’s all well and good to have 40k equipment, but using stacks of printer paper or tape to prop up a panel during the test, kind wastes it all.
                                                  “Just getting it done” is very different from “doing it well”.

                                                      I might have missed it.. I just saw a lab, and you had full access, and they grantes you access, and showed you everything... so what was secretive, if they've shown it to you and basically everyone with an internet connection?

                                                                                      then it did not make the mark.
