Demonking reacted to LAwLz in AMD is not done with the bullshit. (Unconfirmed)
That's different from what AMD are doing.
Nvidia = Same GPU, different prices, different boosts.
Pay more? Get higher clock speed.
Quite simple really.
As for the 2060 KO, that's a case where you got the same generation GPU core but significantly higher performance in some workloads.
AMD = Sneak in old products with very similar names of the new products to try and sell older products to people who think they are buying something else.
Nvidia in your examples = Pay more and get a better binned product, or in the case of the 2060 KO you think you are buying a cheap(er) product but you get the performance of a more expensive product.
The former just makes sense (better binned GPU costs more) and the latter is just a massive win for consumers.
Dude, when you buy the 1030 you know which memory you are getting by just looking at the names. The DDR4 version of the cards are literally named "DDR4".
I agree that users might have a hard time understanding how GDDR5 and DDR4 are different, but that's a completely different issue than "Nvidia are trying to trick people by intentionally naming their products in confusing ways".
You gotta be kidding me.
1) That is not easy to differentiate. You can't say knowing the difference between GDDR5 and DDR4 is hard, but knowing what you just described is easy.
2) Your list isn't even accurate. The 3300U is zen+ despite having a U at the end. The 3600X is Zen 2 despite having a letter at the end.

It always strikes me as odd that consumers go through such measures to defend a company that couldn't give two shits about them. "Let's just blame the consumer for an overly convoluted naming scheme created by AMD, yeah!"
Demonking reacted to justpoet in Intel Rocket Lake-S CPU Rumors: Core-i9 chips can turbo all the way up to 5.4-5.5 GHz | Engineering Samples already reaching 5.3GHz
I have doubts about the claims. But, if they can make it happen, or be competitive with it, I'm all for it.
Bring on the CPU wars and the prices that will follow!

I rly wish that ppl would stop with this 14nm vs 7nm nonsense, those are JUST names they have no correlation to anything for quite some time now... apart from 7nm TSMC being 'better' than 14nm TSMC.

Demonking reacted to soldier_ph in Thermaltake wants to revolutionize the way how you apply Thermal Paste
Thermaltake, the Taiwanese Case, PSU and cooling components manufacturer, releases two new Thermal Pastes, the TG-30 and TG-50, with a special twist: It includes a uniquely shaped stencil that is just as big as a LGA 11xx or AM4 IHS. The Stencil has a Honey comb pattern that allows you to evenly spread out the Thermal Paste onto the IHS. The packaging of each the TG-30 and TG-50 include the Thermal Paste itself, a spudger, the stencil with the Honey comb design that is made out of Acrylic and two Alcohol cleaning wipes. The TG-30 boasts a thermal conductivity of 4.5 W/m-k, while the TG-50 delivers up to 8 W/m-k. Thermaltake sells the TG-30 and TG-50 for $8.99 and $11.99 MSRP, respectively.

This is bit a ridiculous, like they don't have to reinvent the Wheel here. Thermal Paste application is already easy enough, just place a decent sized dot in the middle and you're good to go. IMO. But I think this might be a bit helpful for those people who built a PC for the first time but then you gotta clean the stencil and spudger afterwards and you waste quite a bit of the Thermal Paste in the process. Well I guess to each their own but I will stick to the normal application method with Higher End Thermal Pastes like NT-H2 and Thermal Grizzly.

Fortnite will just teach people how to jailbreak and sideload the app. They don't care. They'll probably make a tool for it and everything.
Demonking reacted to mr moose in Intel suffers massive data breach involving confidential company and CPU information revealing hardcoded backdoors.
The problem is AMD/board vendors can do both, they can provide consumers with more options on newer motherboards and basic support on older. Board manufacturers were also caught out and they know a shit load more about how the whole thing works (including AMD correspondence regarding part support) than we do.
The whole thing was a mess and could have been avoided if AMD had of told board vendors to increase the size of bios chips to ensure future compatibility. They knew it would become a problem long before they announced it and it clearly caught vendors out.
Anyway, to get the topic back on topic, has anyone actually found anything in this "leak" that is note worthy or is it all basically marketing slides and product support?
Demonking reacted to tim0901 in Intel suffers massive data breach involving confidential company and CPU information revealing hardcoded backdoors.
Absolutely. The B450 mess was proof that AMD was perfectly happy to screw over their customers for the sake of profit. They only changed course because consumer reaction was “bigger than expected” (although I personally feel it was probably more to do with the promises made by their board partners). The 4000 series CPUs will almost certainly come with a price increase, because they’re now in the dominant position in the PC enthusiast space, and I imagine board compatibility going forwards will be far more restricted than it has been up till now.
We need proper competition, not the farce we have at the moment, and that means Intel needs to start having a few good days.
