  3. Tom Grube says:

    I want Anthony to tell and explain EVERYTHING hardware related. I would listen 24/7! Also the editing is exactly what Anthony-Lovers want to see. MORE MORE MORE!

  4. Nice intro on fake things.)

  5. Saarnash says:

    Finland mentioned! Torille!!!

  6. GAMER 007 says:

    Really like Anthony, In front of the camera !!!.

  7. I mean, if you're pressing keys on your keyboard and your mouse has issues, then stop using ADB for your keyboard and mouse combo

  8. Evan Dover says:

    We need an Anthony review on The Wall!!!

  9. whatever Linus pays this guy, it's a bargain.

  13. Tell me why he looks like @metaljesusrocks! Lol when u stretch his face

  14. potatotr33 says:

    There is a case to be made for running multiple usb controllers if you're running many high bandwidth usb devices, like some streamers who run 3-5 usb cameras, an audio interface, keyboards, mice, streamdeck, maybe a controller or a racing wheel setup. I've seen in RARE cases someone exceed the bandwith on the bus/controller but thats kinda their fault for doing such a hack-y solution to not just running a proper camera setup.

  15. tyred says:

    Could you retest it add in microphone, camera, and headphones?

  16. Queste Usher says:

    you totally ripped us off that graph didnt show ps2 😉

  17. I bought an extra PCI-e usb hub to capture data from 9 cameras for a biology experiment. you know, something that actually needs that much bandwidth

  18. those ports would be better suited towards having multiple drives over USB, or multiple VR setups connected to the same machine

    Lightning gaming ports… for power…. UNLIMITED POWAH!

  22. Xythiera says:

    Doesnt matter no game actuly runs with more then 1000mhz . Its a wast of tech

  23. DHJudas says:

    When i saw asrock listing of the board, and looking at it's specs, i thought to myself as a computer retailer and systems builder for mass deployment, that the riptide provided properly valued (dollar wise), would be an excellent replacement for the phantom gaming 4 boards i've been basically exclusively using due to their feature set and cost/reliability and performance.

    When i got down to the usb keyboard/mouse nonsense though… i couldn't help but facepalm. The boards characteristics alone without that garbage advertisement can easily stand on it's own, the board looks like it's utterly fantastic for any application all by itself.

  24. Parklawnz says:

    I think Anthony is a fantastic and crucial member of the LTT crew. But the level of simping and circle-jerking about Anthony in the comments is just getting kinda weird and annoying.

  25. Arnav Jade says:

    You should have lightning port images whenever that term was used. It would have made it more hilarious.

  26. Moto Nugget says:

    I find it hilarious that companies still try and pull this marking garbage when there are tons of resources that debunk this hot garbage snake oil xD

  27. Holy crap that "lightning gaming ports " face is genuinely terrifying. I'll never sleep again.

  33. illuminati says:

  34. Michael says:
