The AI revolution is coming. There's nothing we can do about it, one day everything we do will be replaced by some collection of digital logic supplanting us. That day is not today, and the Tom's Guide's deals bot might just be the latest evidence that we're still a little way off being ditched just yet.

Using the OpenAI ChatGPT 3.5 API, Tom's Guide has deployed its own wee chatbot, scraping through the entirety of Future PLC's content to dig out the best deals it thinks worth your time.

It's even been casting its gaze over PC Gamer's content and is intent on bringing you it's own thoughts on what we write. Well, I say 'thoughts', but it's just a large language model (LLM) regurgitating our content in a form relating to the natural language input you give it.

You can check out how effective it is at delivering you the best deals below. And then when you realise that it's not actually quite giving you the best advice, you can come back to the lovingly created hubs of perfectly crafted buying advice that we've put together by hand on team.

Using years of expert knowledge and, y'know, actual experience with the products.

Dave has been gaming since the days of Zaxxon and Lady Bug on the Colecovision, and code books for the Commodore Vic 20 (Death Race 2000!). He built his first gaming PC at the tender age of 16, and finally finished bug-fixing the Cyrix-based system around a year later. When he dropped it out of the window. He first started writing for Official PlayStation Magazine and Xbox World many decades ago, then moved onto PC Format full-time, then PC Gamer, TechRadar, and T3 among others. Now he's back, writing about the nightmarish graphics card market, CPUs with more cores than sense, gaming laptops hotter than the sun, and SSDs more capacious than a Cybertruck.
