    I just upgraded my PC to a i9 9900k, but after watching the pre launch fan boy hype from many youtubers and the low real world actual increase coupled with the massive price increase i have decided to never buy another intel chip and i have never used anything else. I'm kinda sick of the baby step increases Intel jog out, and the PR hype that usually wow's up theses shit little increases in performance. After seeing AMD's 2700x at almost half the price and not that far behind performance wise i'm finally pissed off with playing it safe and going with what i know. I buy regular as i recycle my used PC parts to my children and grand kids as they need them meaning we all benefit, but my next purchase will most def not be Intel. It may be a year or 2 down the line after this major upgrade but it's the last Intel get out of me for a long time i suspect.

    I always told my kids, "Stay behind the cutting edge of technology. Let others with money to throw away, be beta testers and exploited by manufacturers. You can pick up those things a year or two later for 40% to 60% off what they paid. Spend the money you save on faster proven memory, more memory, more storage and develop some hobby that includes the outdoors like Kayaking, Archery or Photography. There are always new things to buy, but sometimes they are not so new after all."

    Intel needs to really go back to the drawing board. I'm talking all the way back; mechanical computers instead of electronic. Or even hydraulic computers. Or a hydro-mechanical computer. That would be cool.

    Now in fairness I've seen Linus build crappy $100 builds and also a damn wall of bitcoin miners that costs a heap.... No matter what he presents its always in the typical Scandinavian relaxed and jovial attitude. Scandinavians are the easiest going people I've met... Alarm clock? Most of them would need a giant mallet attached to a string.
    So it clearly takes a lot to piss Linus off ... I'd be sure you'd probably need to nail his nut sack to a workbench with a hilti gun to get him to squeal foul like a stuffed pig.
    So when Linus out and out calls Intel out on their bullshit, essentially calling them a pack of shysters....well its time to start looking at an AM4 motherboard. Simple as that.
    I mean a damn spreadsheet with data they are now ducking and diving from? Who the hell is running things in Intel? Trumps social grace and diplomacy team?

  • Shane Johns
    Shane Johns Před 2 měsíci

    Most likely, what you have here is just the top-performing after-production CPUs being re-branded to take advantage of their ability to handle increased overclocking. That's how Bitmain did their hashing boards as well. They simply pre-sorted the chips/boards based on their maximum overclock speeds, and charged more for the devices that were populated with the chips/boards that did better at overclocking.

  • Sven Olaf Kamphuis
    Sven Olaf Kamphuis Před 2 měsíci

    That is absolutely right. Intel is stuck with a limited product range for which only a handful of existing pc boarx builder customers remain. Aint noone in the world gonna consider using their 1000 pimned chips in any new designs, and they dont have much else on the market. If pcs die, so does intel. They dont even make logic chips or ram as a backup plan anymore.

    The i9-9980X is just a bunch of extra threads you'll never use that generate extra heat. Compare it to the i9-9900X I think you will find the results amusing.

    If I'm going to spend 2K on a proc, it's going to be for an Epyc from AMD for the same price. But you get 32-core, 64 threads instead of 18/36, 64MB of level 3 cache instead of 24, 14nm as well, 3mb of level 1 cache instead of 1mb. On top of that, it supports 128 PCI-e lanes with 32x4 or 16x8 configs instead of 44 with only 16xm 8x and 4x, 8-channel memory instead of 4-channel doubling memory bandwidth, 2 TB max memory instead of 128 GB, MCP on die instead of on MB... The place where it falls short is raw speed, and who cares with that many more cores and threads? Also it has 2 MB less of level 2 cache.

    What could or should I upgrade with $600? I'm thinking Ryzen 3870X in May if the rumors are true

    Wow - a two generation jump from 7980XE to 9980XE - and that within a year !
    Intel is so fantastic !
    In the past we got more cores, higher clocks, a new manufacturing process with a new CPU generation - and now we get a two generation jump from 7th to 9th generation !!
    Absolutely awesome...
    The new CPU must have double clock speeds with half of the enery consumtion to justify this HUGE step.
    But it seems, that is not the case.
    So, another CPU from Intel which will be bestseller !
    I'm really looking forward to the 10th generation !
    Keep on rockin Intel !
