    Why is it okay to accept the financial thrashing from Intel but unacceptable to do the same from AMD? Intel has been eating your wallet for snack for 10 whole years but all the CHclip influencers are out to help Intel get back on top when AMD is the one company trying to give you a price break while giving you better than comparable performance (in some cases) over the one company financially enslavement.? I'll likely never understand but do what you feel you must to get back on the train.

    Maby the INTEL 10 nm does not work because of the inbuilt cpu OS. The OS does not scale well... Also who knows what the OPTANE has on some hidden cips... Think logic... In order for the CPU to work better the CPU has to talk with somebody AND UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER ... with optane... CPU os says COPY THIS MAKE IT FASTER ... OPTANE OS SAYS OK BUT I HAVE BATETTER INTERNET CONEXION AND SEND TO SOME SERVER FAST ALL YOU ARE DOING... without anyone noticing

    I am happy AMD is doing well, that is not to say they are the best either. Everyone has their reasons for one over the other. I have never been concerned about price, so the argument on price is of no concern. I just buy what works best and deal with price as I go without complaining like a little child as so many people do from what I have read in forums and in comments. Wining doesnt make ones pc rig better it just shows how immature they are. As far as my work in engineering is concerned I have always forked out what I must. AMD is helping create healthy competition helping further everyone. Do I own AMD? No, but I have and if you want to you should! Do I think they are dishing out great products for a great price? Yes. But do they meet all my criteria also for what I am looking for from a CPU and GPU? No. Will I push my system build on others? No, there is no need. It is all about the user and theirs. Let's root eachother on guys. I am not a fan boy of anything but best performance period. No ratios of price to performance and all these are other metrics people use to justify their buys. Just get what is best for you, talk intelligently with others about it.

    Wait, why are the i7 6950x and the i9 7980xe only clocked at around 3ghz?

  • freak777power
    freak777power Před 25 dny

    I am running i7 7820x at 4.8Ghz and runs cooler than Ryzen 2700x. My CPU does not go over 65C on regular AIO Corsair setup. x299 platform is great and I am not sure what's the point of this video? X299 really shows its muscles in real work and gaming and virtualization. The platform is worth every penny. 6:30 shows how badly Ryzen actually sucks and the price of $300 fits it. This high clock speed of 9900k doesn't really play any role cause I am only 200Mhz shy from 9900k clock speed on much better x299 platform.

    The best thing Intel could do and beat AMD in their own game is to kill z390 chipset and bring x299 platform to main stream and all they have to do is to lower price for 2066 CPUs and undercut all AMD offering...and it is game over for AMD cause they got nothing to compete with having pile of shit AM4 platform with chocking dual memory channel.

    Linus, you made a mistake. Intel is not going to kill 2066 socket CPUs but kill 9900k and z390 chipset, the other way around. They will just bring 2066 socket to mainstream and lower the price so 16/32 CPU matches AM4 16/32 price and AMD got nothing to fight with.

    As soon as Intel lowers the price for their 2066 is 14 core dropping into my machine.

    So the bottom line is that the i9 9900k blows everything out of the water at that price range and most most $1,000+ CPUs, and building a budget PC today has never been better.

    This is the PERFECT example of why capitalism is a good thing. With only one company making a product with no competition they’ll never advance and get better. Or at least not quickly. Like AMD or not, they’re the reason intel is getting off their ass and starting to provide and upgrade again.

    You're absolutely right. I have a 2500k since 2012 because it's too much expensive - and really low benefits in terms of performance - change everything to new CPUs. So basicly it looks to me that Intel just don't want my money.

    More cores means shit if the application is not taking advantage of it.. And coders are not keeping up with it. It lags behind by 10 years. Hell they still teach single core coding in classes. As if it was the 40 years ago....
    I would add. The future is in putting Networking. Buss etc...Straight onto the CPU. No more expansion slots needed but one. The video card.... This lowers the MB makers cost to build Mother Boards.

    Apparently intel has listened and made the Xeon W3175-X 28-core CPU a Xeon workstation part and not another i9 Extreme HEDT CPU. And priced at a "reasonable" 3000$ unlike 1800$ for its AMD 32-core rival! They only listened until the pricing part of this video...

    I guess to medium and large video game streamers, money may not mean the same thing to them that it does to me, but it does kind of crack me up watching them talk about their $8,000+ PCs, and look at their specs with their i9 9900ks, and think, about how they could've literally spent about half that, gone with the TOP THREADRIPPER OR EPYC chips, a cheaper motherboard (likely by half the price), and likely got better performance, if not just simply spending HALF the amount on the overall machine! NOT TO MENTION all the issues with crashes, blackscreens, skipped and dropped frames that they deal with. Some people are just so blinded by brand loyalty, they just aren't willing to look outside the box for the current best product!
