Yep, most reviewers are just another branch of Intel’s (as well as Nvidia’s) marketing departments. People want to find out what’s best for their needs, they have to do research. And even if they don’t want to read articles, they would still have to research YouTubers and find out if they’re not in the competition’s back pocket.
No one wants to do that shit. People want their information spoonfed to them, no matter how frivolous and trivial it is in the grand scheme of things.
