Intel has NO idea what to do…

It's time for new high-end CPUs! Except this one's not looking so fresh... Has Intel just given up fighting AMD?

Linus: "Yeah @GabenJr I want you to benchmark 7 CPUs for me"
Anthony: "Uhh, okay, I guess I can find time for that"
Linus: "Oh yeah, in both gaming and productivity workloads"
Anthony: "..... Sure, I'll have to move some things around but I can make it happen..."
Linus: "Oh, and don't forget to do both DX11 and DX12 modes for those game benchmarks"

This video thumbnail, GN's thumbnail, just those 2 images tell a LOT and i haven't watched either of them (yet)

If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

I can think of one use for that sorry excuse of an upgrade: stick 20 of them on your car's windscreen and tell everyone you're rich... That's the only thing I can think of why you should buy that.

At this point it'd have been better simply not do any thing... But they needed to fill the two gens per chipset right? Meaning as every one know the next HEDT line up will require a brand new chipset/socket to work.

 

I can still only justify Intel on mainstream, HEDT already belongs to AMD and it's threadripper line up.

It sure looks like they forgot everything they did during Haswell-E and Broadwell-E times.

 

Remember the times where you had 6 and 8 core CPU's with quad channel memory support and 40 PCIE lanes? Oh and remember when a refresh for the same chipset gave you 2 extra cores in the highest end CPU? 

 

At least they remembered how to solder stuff.

That said the opening was the best part, the rest was just filler ? Hear that Intel? A video about your CPU is just filler for the outro after the much better intro, it's that useful...

Think we need to look down the range for the excitement. The 9800X looks like a winner to me, based on one UK pre-order, only 14% more than 9900k for more ram channels, AVX-512, and PCIe lanes.

For my personal uses TR will only become a viable option once Zen2 versions are out.

If you have team locked up in a dungeon and their survival depends on the content they output, anything is possible... I guess? :D

WHAT IS THE PR PROBLEM THING MENTIONED BY LINUS AT THE LAST

 

Did you watch the video? They stopped publishing some specs, because they think it will make the product "confusing" or people won't like the spec. But Linus/buyers can just plug it in and *look* at it. So why hide it? XD

What video card was used in this test for the game benchmarks? I can't find this info anywhere.

I think we all know pretty well that Linus could've done 45 games if he really wanted to but he made a very specific point that he will not be doing content like Steve from GN because being too technical about it is too boring for him. 

 

There is a reason why LTT and GN are channels that are roughly the same age (LTT less than 1 year older) but Linus has like 20x more subscribers and his take on the new CPU as of the moment when I'm writing this has over 10x more views. Notice how I said "take" because that's what really better describes LTT's approach to content.

 

There are a lot of reasons why they didn't do 45 games review but certainly time isn't one of them. In the end, people probably came here to listen to Linus give Intel shit :D
