Ask YouTube will process your query, find the best relevant YouTube search results, and analyze and summarize them first. If there is a consistent choice, Ask YouTube will give you a ChatGPT-like answer telling you which GPU you should buy and why. If not, it will give you a reason without a clear answer, but will provide further help.
All videos analyzed by Ask YouTube are listed in the search results with a summary.If the original answer wasn't enough information for you, this is great because you can now choose which videos to watch or not to watch based on the read summary.Just to remind you that the search speed of Ask YouTube is not as fast as Google or ChatGPT, so you need to be patient.
