Micro Center Apologize

Finding a graphic card is pretty difficult in today’s time given the acute shortage of them in the tech market. Even though the situation might have improved, it has not been much better than before. While choosing a better graphic card, the most difficult situation the consumers are left with is to pick between Nvidia and AMD GPUs.

Both the companies are fairly reputed when it comes to graphic cards or any other devices manufactured by either company. Thus, it is evident that those who are knowledgeable about technology and gadgets, find it extremely difficult to pick the best one between these two. 

You must have heard the news about the micro center apologizes publicly to everyone regarding certain events that transpired. Regarding the very same dilemma of the consumers that we talked about above, Micro Center recently published a piece of advice that was purported to help the consumers that have been struggling with choosing the best graphics between Nvidia and AMD. The advice further turned out to be quite controversial that Micro Center had to apologise for its post. 

Why Did Micro Center Apologize?  

So the message that the micro center posted that attracted controversy from all around described how Nvidia chips are better than the AMD graphic card, and the comparison that was drawn was quite unjust and seemingly took down upon the AMD graphic cards in front of Nvidia graphic cards. 

The controversial post claimed that the AMD graphic cards were high-maintenance and thereby unaffordable, unlike the Nvidia graphic cards. Not only this, the post went on to compare the installation process for the AMD and Nvidia graphic cards and claimed that for the former, the entire process is quite complex and long as compared to the easy options and facilities provided by the Nvidia graphic cards.

Further in the post, a statement has been made, though not an explicit one, but an implicit one that the AMD GPUs do not support the modern gaming technologies in their models like ray tracing, unlike the Nvidia graphic cards that come pre-installed with it. 

Authorities Received Backlash

All of this and many more that has not been quoted in the above paragraph was released in the post by the micro center Hoston and micro center Denver. Both these centres of micro centers are the largest set of retailers in North America. Therefore, a statement coming from such a reputed organisation is naturally taken seriously by the common masses without any worry about the veracity or protest. 

In the post, it was also stated that Nvidia’s graphic cards are pretty much like the gaming consoles of plug-in and play video games. The authorities received a severe backlash after this post due to false allegations that were made by them without much pondering and deliberation. Later, the president and CEO  of the micro center apologized and took to social media manifesting his concern over the events that took place.
