Intel is being predictable.
Let's not get too excited just yet - i still have PTSD from the AMD bulldozer "gamechanging architecture" marketing bs. hahaha
John giving Guru3D the thumbs up for appearing on WAN Show!
Any chance they won't use the toothpaste?
Doubt that, so far they have used it on all consumer parts. Pathetic. But you never know if they may decide to change this.
For me, it's not just core-count that matters. I need thunderbolt 3 to be more widely adopted, so, not only could I then make use of more cores, but, also the latest low-latency audio interfaces. It's been over a year since Intel made thunderbolt 3 royalty free, but, I don't see much adoption on AMD/motherboard manufacturers side, despite their new processors being very attractive.
For musicians and studios with an eye to the future, Intel is still the only choice. That needs to change.
TB3 would be very good for all notebooks and external GPUs. AMD boards quite often use intel's WiFi. So it is not like AMD side does not use intel's HW. It is more like manufacturers in general do not see need for it.
It took many years for boards to feature USB-C.
I've heard some good things from users running Ryzen for daw software, but, for real-time use of vst effects, it's all about thunderbolt 3 audio interfaces right now. AMD needs to push for it to happen, otherwise, it's another market they will potentially lose-out on.
Pff, Intel making money on making people screw up with deliding and buying another Intel CPU.
