JVTech News He orders a graphics card for his friend, but Amazon makes a mistake and sends him a much more powerful model
Amazon is doing its own thing again and it’s not to displease this player from the PC Master Race community!
A pleasant mistake!
On Reddit, you can find all kinds of stories, whether they are related to video games or not. Recently, a user posted a photo on the subreddit “pcmasterrace”, showing that Amazon had made a mistake twice in its graphics card order. For those who don’t know, r/pcmasterrace is a special virtual space for computer gaming aficionados – and only computer gaming! With over 9.5 million active members, this forum is a place where PC gaming enthusiasts share their experiences, discuss the latest technology, and gently poke fun at those who have yet to embrace the PC gaming path. .
And while we often find trolls or memes while scrolling through this subreddit, we sometimes come across stories that are worth telling. This time, and as you will have understood from the title of this article, we find ourselves in the presence of a great story, since a player who certainly did not have the means to afford a graphics card very powerful, had the pleasant surprise with his friend – who built his PC – to receive a much more powerful GPU thanks to an error from Amazon.
A more powerful graphics card for the same price
User hibiscuschild shared his experiences on Reddit regarding the assembly of his friend’s PC. When ordering on Amazon, he opted for a Radeon RX 7600, an entry-level graphics card perfectly suited to Full HD, for around 300 euros. However, the site made a first mistake by sending him an RX 6600, a less powerful model. After requesting an exchange, Amazon made a second mistake, but this time to its advantage: it received a more efficient graphics card than the one ordered. He explains :
I’m building a PC for my friend, we ordered a 7600 QICK 308 and they sent a 6600 Swift 210 the first time. The replacement arrived today and it’s a 7800 XT QICK 319. Both are labeled (on the site) as a 7600 QICK 308. Free upgrade I guess.
As we explained to you above, the Radeon RX 7600 is an entry-level graphics card characterized by its video memory limited to 8 GB, sufficient for Full HD. On the other hand, AMD’s RX 7800XT, located in the middle of the range, offers performance suitable for WQHD (1440p) and benefits from a much more interesting video memory capacity (16 GB). The user therefore benefited from an unexpected upgrade, going from a Full HD graphics card to a WQHD card, which constitutes a rather interesting improvement for his friend.
