    Lol, the fanboying is toxic. Use what you want to use for whatever reason you see fit. But that doesn't mean people that don't agree are wrong. Intel are assholes, but for what I need from a product, they make a better product, so I go with Intel. If people want something else from their rig or just don't want to support Intel, or are more about a diverse workload, whatever the reason, go with AMD. Or Intel! The best product for what you need from it may cut 10% off of your work. If you can now get 44 hours worth of stuff done in 40 hours, that's good right? That in the end is what I care about at least, what has me getting most done per hour. So far it's Intel. And since they also work better on games, when it's time to relax I see no reason to not still be on Intel.
    Who knows what the situation is in 2 generations though. I'm curious about the 4800X vs the 11900K situation you know.

    The companies know they have no reason to release their best tech for cheap when they can just make throwaway tech and sell it at a very high price and they will keep doing this unless they either get a really good CEO that knows how to optimize performance-expenses-and-gains on their product OR people begin to use their brain and realize they are getting hard scammed with many many of these type of products, just like nvidia is doing with the rtx 2080 LOL

    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."

    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

    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.

    So, Intel has hit the brick wall? They can’t make their processors any faster. We knew this day would come.

  • ZKH Prins Sven Olaf van CyberBunker-Kamphuis

    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.
