NVIDIA isn’t about to let AMD dominate the news cycle. It almost seems like NVIDIA was waiting till just before the 7 July availability of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and 5700 to announce the cards, seemingly hoping to steal some of their thunder. After all, one of the selling points of the Radeon RX 5700 XT was that it offered slightly better performance than the GeForce RTX 2070 at the same price.

Samsung had just launched the Galaxy S7 and LG, the modular G5. In just a few months after that story was published, Samsung’s follow up Note 7 devices would suffer battery failures and meltdowns. The entire line had to be recalled. It was undoubtedly a PR disaster and Samsung’s reputation took a major hit that many thought would take years to rebuild.
