Intel - "Talk to the Product Marketing Engineer" Live Chat & Giveaway

Recommended Posts

Gosh darnit Linus, make the text see-able to night theme users. Edit, highlight, default color.


I really wish that we'd just make organic hardware already, that grows and adapts to the demands it needs to meet. That way, grannies' computers can be floppy sacks of organicness and the 12 year old Minecrafters will look like the guys that only do bicep curls, and the nerdy programmers will finally have justice, with their body-builder rigs that skipped leg day.

Would be great winning some of these , since I'm planning on building a new pc.

 

p.s. Would we get some benchmarks with the normal Haswell cpus?

i'd like to know how he got into intel

like, how he was as kid in school, where did he go to school, how did he get into PCs and stuff, did he went straight to intel after school, if not, where then and how he ended up at intel

if that's something he always wanted, or just looking for a job in IT, is he happy there,...

that kind of stuff

Question #1:  I would like to know why Intel didn't use a better IHS/TIM on the Haswell line of CPUs.  The problem with the current Haswell CPUs is so prevalent, that this must have been discovered during QA.  Does the product marketing engineer condone delidding?  Obviously the RMA process wont go through for a delidded processor, but I would like to hear his opinion on the subject because this is a well known and discussed issue, and some people have to delid just to get a minor overclock.  Here is one example. Before Delid     After Delid.  Has Intel learned from its mistake and we can not expect to run into this problem again in the future?

 

*Disclaimer:  I understand that from a business and marketing standpoint, having a product with a fixable problem isn't necessarily a bad thing for the company.  They can wait a year to release a revision/solution to the problem(Devil's Canyon) and buy more time for true architectural improvements(Broadwell/Skylake).  Devil's Canyon is not really a new processor, just has better TIM/IHS.  It still looks like Intel is releasing something, which makes the company look good and buys more time for the next step.  The one major difference between Haswell and DC is the TIM/IHS.  The higher stock speeds of the i7 is impressive, but not so much for the i5.  Releasing Devil's Canyon gives the public what they want, and is what should have been done in the first place with Haswell.  I see people who own Haswell processors attempting to overclock and are getting terrible results.  These unlucky consumers, and there are quite a few of them, pop up on the forum daily and I feel for them.

 

Question #2:  It is speculated that AMD is going to be releasing a new FX processor that comes with a liquid cooler.  Will Intel be releasing a CPU that comes with a liquid cooler in the future?

 

Question #3:  Are you familiar with the new CPU architecture that AMD is planning to release sometime in 2016?  If so, could you shed some light on what AMD might have in store for us come 2016?  Do you keep on top of what the competition is doing at all times and are you intrigued/concerned about the potential for AMD to release something groundbreaking and a massive shift in market share to occur?  Competition is good for the industry to advance; do you think of moves and counter moves in this industry in order for Intel to remain the superior enthusiast option?

 

Question #4:  With AMD shifting focus towards APUs, has Intel spent time, money, and effort to become a significant player in the APU market?  I don't want Intel to abandon its enthusiast market, but I am curious about what Intel has to offer in terms of a stronger integrated graphics solution for the more budget oriented buyers.

 

Question #5:  Game developers have been telling us for years that Hyperthreading and more cores will have a more linear effect on performance, and for years this has remain untrue.  Do you think Hyperthreading will soon show more profound performance gains when it comes to gaming in the near future?  If so, how long?  It seems like it has been 3 or more years that recommended specs have been telling us to buy i7s, yet the performance difference is negligible when comparing an i5 and i7.  Does it make sense to try and "future proof" by going with an i7 over an i5.

Why doesn't intel have more unlocked cpu? and low cost unlocked cpu like g3258 maybe an unlocked i3 as well?

 

The cheapest unlocked cpu is the 4670k (before devils canyon) at $250 while everything is unlocked with amd. I think that is a major reason for going amd instead of intel at least for an enthusiast

 

I would love to see more unlocked cpu from intel.

Okay , This actually sounds good , getting to talk to the engeniers directly will be good i believe,

 

I Have a few questions :

 

  1. At what point did intel decide they should put graphics core on the CPU itself instead of letting a third party vendor handle the Graphics side instead focus more on the CPU perfomance? was it to intimidate the current competition & do you guys paln to proceed on expanding the GPU side along with the CPU or is this a temporary raise of arms?
  2. Why do you try to make CPU architecture smaller & smaller on desktop platform , when you can pack more processing power on same size as in 45 nm arc(i too am confused by this question) but what i mean is like engenieering a F1 car , why make the car smaller when you get twice the horse power out of new engine architecture you can put two engines on the same size instead of trying to make everything small..
  3. Where do you guys see the end point for CPU as in , you cannot innovate it further & get more juice out of it anymore, do you think one day you'll reach that point? or the cpu is just going to keep on coming for the next century or so..
  4. is there going to be a time when you guys are going to consider lowering the price down just a tiny bit for enthusiast, (troll question :P )
  5. There was a rumor that by 2016 you guys would get rid of all the random powercables going to the motherboard itself & give it a whole new design , is it even remotly true?
  6. can we expect server grade perfomance on desktops in the coming years ? , 4ghz is okay for now but can we expect anything moar?

 

Those are my questions, & hope you guys get to ask a few of them .

 

 

 

 

meanwhile we shall take a shot of beer whenever they mention the word

innovation

competition (they wont say the name)

haswell or ivy bridge *burp*  :mellow:
