  1. It's a lot of technical stuff that goes over my head, but still cool to see. Source https://www.anandtech.com/show/16702/nvme-20-specification-released
  2. Because it’s just a marketing stunt and data farming tool. You’re better off just muting anybody saying hateful shit, and reporting them if possible.
  3. This is a late April's Fools joke, right? I can't believe they've unironically got an N-word button, lol
  4. The 11700K performs within margin of error in gaming versus Comet Lake for the most part, so still behind Ryzen 5000 on average. Productivity is where the only real performance gains are seen and even then it's still not enough to match the 5800X in most cases. Power efficiency isn't looking great either, the single core power consumption is particularly bad. Wait for Alder Lake.
  5. Comet Lake-S release date: April 30th 2020 Comet Lake-S one year anniversary plus six months: October 30th 2021 Literally in the middle of Q4.. Why is Intel so opposed to longer product cycles anyway? They seem to have worked pretty well for AMD. They work just fine in the GPU market too.
  6. I'll give you that. Although I don't feel like it would've been that offensive to investors and system integrators if they had asked for an extra six months on Comet Lake. They could've sold it as a marketing thing by advertising Alder Lake as having a colossal performance bump over Comet Lake. Then again maybe Intel will just ignore Rocket Lake in the marketing anyway and plaster "~40% performance boost over Skylake!" everywhere. That's pocket change to Intel, companies their size write off losses like that all the time. AMD's stock situation is getting better thou
  7. Take a look at these three: https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/lg/27gl83a-b (144Hz) https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/dell/s2721dgf (165Hz) https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/msi/optix-mag274qrf-qd (165Hz) All IPS, so good colors and viewing angles, and they all have excellent response times. Not sure on European pricing for these but if they're similar to US pricing they should still fit within your budget, especially the first one. There's also the Gigabyte M27Q (https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/gigabyte/m27q) it's
  8. You say there isn't performance regression then immediately proceed to say it's slightly slower in some benchmarks. Sounds like regression to me, but okay? Oh and FYI Rocket Lake caps out at 8 cores, so compared to Comet Lake it's literally going to be a regression in performance for any workload that scales with cores, the IPC gains just aren't enough to make up a 2 core deficit.
  9. I guess I'm just baffled they even bothered releasing this thing. They would've been better off just taking the L for a year while Alder Lake finishes, especially since the gap between the two is seemingly going to be less than six full months. All Rocket Lake does is further the perception that Intel has become a joke in the desktop market, it's also negatively impacted the last thing Intel had going for them (gaming performance). I mean could you imagine if Nvidia went five years just releasing refreshes of Pascal on 14nm, and then they finally come out with a new architecture..
  10. Two tests? Dude look at the benchmarks again, it's worse or at best tied with Skylake in most of the game benchmarks, and in several of the other benchmarks it ties with the 9900K. If that's all Intel can muster after five years I'd consider that pretty pathetic. I don't know why you're so hellbent on fanboying over a multibillion dollar corporation.
  11. The key differences here are that Zen 3 didn't take over 5 years to happen, and Zen 3 was faster across the board in consumer applications. Pretty sure Zen 3 doesn't run slower than Zen 2 in any games for example. Also I find it telling you're having to dig up some minor performance regressions for Zen 3 that only really manifest on paper, meanwhile I'm basing my opinion of Rocket Lake on how it performs in actual tests.
  12. Skylake is over five years old, so I'm sorry but there's no excuse for Rocket Lake performing worse anywhere, it should be better in every scenario. It's disappointing that this is the best Intel can offer after half a decade of stagnation on architecture.
  13. Aside from the power numbers (which I have fixed in the OP) what did I exaggerate or get wrong? Rocket Lake is legitimately performing worse than Skylake in some tests, and across the board it's worse than the 5800X aside from AVX512, which practically nobody in the market for these chips cares about. You can nitpick all you want but the fact is that this is a disastrous launch, nothing about Rocket Lake is enticing to the average consumer, Zen 3 beats in raw performance and power efficiency, Comet Lake and Zen 2 have it beat on price. Who is this product for?
  14. Performance gains range from mediocre to non-existent, and in the worst cases it's actually slower than Skylake, overall it's still slower vs the 5800X despite consuming significantly more power. Interestingly it also has higher core-to-core latency and a worse performing L3 cache compared to Skylake. It's impressively bad, I'm at a loss for words.
