Google and Bing AI Bots hallucinate AMD 9950X3D, Nvidia RTX 5090 Ti, other future technologies

AI chatbots like Google Bard and Bing Chat (based on ChatGPT) are notorious for offering fabricated facts and bad advice, despite the fact that their two developers and some publishers seem to think that they can take the place expert human journalists. However, if you want the best PC components or single board computers of 2024 or 2025 today, Bard and Bing seem to know more than anyone, including the manufacturers who will develop them.

When I asked Bard and Bing to help me decide between buying several different (but possible) future processors and graphics cards, the bots responded as if these products were already on the market and had been compared. While Bing’s fabulist answers seemed to pull their specs from current products, perhaps just confusing model numbers, Google’s bot came up with some very interesting fictional data.
