Sorry, but when has Intel or nVidia ever done anything like this?

I meant more in general just doing shitty business practices, though Nvidia did almost the same thing with the GTX970, albeit slightly less blatant.

For Intel, the most blatant thing I can think of off the top of my head that they've been doing recently is putting birdshit TIM in their absurdly expensive processors, all so they can save like 8 cents per die. In the meantime, your temps go up by 20 degrees and your processor probably shortens its lifetime by a few years.
