There, I fixed that for you.

Why is it fortunate that people don't get back more money for their purchase if the product they bought was falsely advertised? That was my intention with the original reply.

But was it falsely advertised, and would small print stating that under certain circumstances a floating point operation may be delayed for a clock cycle really have been a deal breaker for everyone that bought one?

 

I bought a Pentium D and that thing was a crock of shit that couldnt run at 100% load as the FSB was a bottleneck, do I get a money back?

Anyone who had been following the industry for a while should've known that it was 8 mediocre cores with "reverse hyper-threading" to allow for higher lightly threaded performance when the cores weren't being highly used. 

The problem was that "reverse hyper-threading" didn't really work well. 

Any half-informed consumer should be buying based off of benchmarks anyway, plus a dash of "I know what I'm getting".

US just refuses to work with GDPR on so many levels it hurts.

Probably because GDPR is a European law and the US is not in Europe ?‍♂️

I believe it is still a requirement to follow if you do business inside the EU, I could be wrong though. EU law pisses me off and I can't be bothered reading through the GDPR to find out.

That's true, but it would have covered AMD's bases at least legally. Although its probably pretty difficult for them to imagine that they would get sued for it so many years down the line when the launch (at least in a legal sense) worked.

or you purchased an AMD FX CPU on AMD's website, you have until January 3, 2020 to file a claim

It looks like it's worth clarifying, the wording that I've gotten is that it's if you purchased an AMD FX CPU after visiting AMD.com, not that you have to have purchased the CPU from the website. So, essentially, just about everybody is eligible since that's near impossible to reasonably prove.


insisting you think for yourself means you don't and just have an excuse to deny evidence.

Thats correct, like if a EU citizen buys something from a US webpage, that page stores PII (Personally Identifying Information) on their servers which often resides in the US, that european PII on that US server is protected under GDPR and therefore that company need to comply to GDPR rules to be able to do business with EU citizens. Most do, but many also kinda just does their own thing since this is kinda hard to enforce outside EU.

That's how I read it.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.
