Gaming’s not all about raw power – And if power consumption and your carbon footprint mean anything to you, maybe it’s time to rethink how you build your PC…

    linus: we are saving energy
    also linus: has intel as an option

  2. Bettgeher23 on March 6, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Would love to see an updated version of this!

  3. Ricardordz11 on March 6, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    It’s really impressive that an Xbox can run games at a decent frame rate and fidelity at such a low wattage, wasn’t expecting that

  4. stormwolf yt on March 6, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Imagine the leave is plastic

  5. last Koresh on March 6, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    We fret so much about our own carbon footprint in the west while China negates everything we do.

  6. pcplays on March 6, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Love the damn editors

    Oh it was scripted by the way

  7. Taylor Whitesides on March 6, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    GTX 1650 4gb OC version is probably the best power for efficiency. I have one and it is amazing!

    The appeal is that you can buy another computer, and put it in, and no power change is needed. You don’t have to worry about it at all and it’s pretty great at gaming. Less heat too.

  8. 33 Tan Ze Qi on March 6, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Mobile CPUs and GPUs?

  9. Greard Florent on March 6, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    no in france we have a lot of nuclear a loooot over 50

  10. 33 Tan Ze Qi on March 6, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    ARM chip architecture?

  11. Aaron Huntley on March 6, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    underclocking really is this what the worpd has come to

    It’s more efficient than a console but not more efficient for my wallet

    Can anyone recommend a pc that is just as good as a ps5 or better or just as good for under 2 grand ,prebuilt

  19. racnas on March 6, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    so any pc?

  20. 1st Comment on March 6, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    My electricity comes from nuclear

  21. SUPERj 850 on March 6, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    You what would help the environment much more? Buying used parts.

  22. TheAverage Blitzer on March 6, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    You’ve just made a gaming laptop with good thermals

  23. epicbuilder2007 on March 6, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Ahahaha "T-series" joke very funny

  24. Crew The protogen on March 6, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Do this again with a 30 card

  25. Steven McPhee on March 6, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Watching this after upgrading a pre built and realizing I now have the exact same build down to the cooler case and everything except the power supply.

    My only difference is I’m running it overclocked to the max and with 8 fans…
    Oops

  26. Rufusaa on March 6, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Dude, I don’t believe that Intel would say sub to Pewds. But if they did that would be great. It would also be funny if Anthony just added that. It kinda seems like he did because linus sounds annoyed afterwards.

  27. Jalen Wright on March 6, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    the Wii U 15watt

  28. Jeff McJeff on March 6, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    They call it Underclocking.

  29. Anesh Senthilprabu on March 6, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Gamers: I don’t care unless I get good frames
    Pc enthusiasts: I think my overclock may be responsible for the polar bears going homeless

    Comeback when u make one more efficient then the M1

  32. Billy Kaelin on March 6, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Anthony looks like he is about to monologue about his super weapon that will destroy boom beach every time he talks

  33. DerToasti on March 6, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    god in 4-5 people will build pcs with rtx 4000 or 5000 and declare victory for the pc master race over the base ps5 and series x.

  34. Sawyer Grimm on March 6, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    We need more videos like this, Linus!

  35. Wolf on March 6, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    wind!

  36. 61 keys on March 6, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    "We informed them that it’s a completely dead meme"

    I really hope Linus warned Intel & pewdiepie fans enough for them to acknowledge that it’s actually a dead meme

  37. M. Yasin on March 6, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Linus linux

  38. Kayla Mitchell on March 6, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    *laughs in laptop*

  39. havy99 on March 6, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Yesterday evening I googled about the power consumption on my pc and now this morning I get this rip

  40. Natan Salazar on March 6, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    nuclear hydro boy here <3

  41. CSLFiero on March 6, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    so the lesson here is that if you want to have a good $ to power ratio to build a mining array, jerry-rig gaming consoles together.

  42. Ozzy M on March 6, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Top 10 Anime Betrayals
    HAhahahahaa!
    That look on Anthony’s face!

  43. Isaac Tyner on March 6, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    thats my case!

  44. Kaleb on March 6, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Ok… As he was mentioning the 30w at idle, I was literally thinking "that’s like half of a 60w incandescent bulb"

  45. Aayush Lamichhane on March 6, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    I’m watching this from Hydro

  46. Robert A on March 6, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Bring in the 6800, or the 6800xt, or the *69* 00xt

  47. Bob Grau on March 6, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    I like to imagine Linus teaching his kids to tie their shoelaces, then stepping back to let Anthony explain exactly what a shoelace is and how they work.

  48. Malay Mehta on March 6, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Quieter than a console

  49. Petersnajper on March 6, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    To save the power, we used the rgb keyboard 3:45
