    Glue is cheaper than micro bolts. Cheaper to use, cheaper to design for. It's a cheap product. Doesn't look good for nvidia honestly.

    Fettuccine are flat noodles. Linguine are every so slightly ovoid, thicker in the middle, creating slightly uneven cooking across the width of the noodle, adding a bit of "tooth" to your chew, without being wholly al dente.

    you could have gotten the same point across using a 150 dollar Gpu, half the world only hopes to own a monster gpu like that in there lives and linus destroys it (colorwise). Nice video tho. i would never do something like that. function over form :D
