    It's far better than sport fans, music subcultures and a like. AMD vs Intel flame wars are actually pretty civilized.

    While I get your skepticism I think you are going to be surprised by Intel's come back on 7nm. Intel's "chiplets" and 3D stacking approaches are way more elegant than AMD's. If Intel nails 7nm which is more akin to TSMC's 5nm they will be back on top of AMD. With that said this next 18 months or so for Intel is going to suck as AMD is going to be giving them a full fledges arse whooping in every segment.

    You can blame Apple for a lot of stuff but not of this one. They are doing what any other company would do in their position, secure the product they need, nothing else.

    The real problem here is that very few expected this demand explosion for chips and now there are only an handful of companies capable of making this product.

    A close relation of mine works in Intel fab (its near where I live too)... but my last two CPU purchases were still AMD - right now they are just much better (for my purposes - productivity, light gaming) :oops:

    Funny, that chart showing the history. I still have a Lynnfield 875K OC'ed with a GTX 1080 and 16GB of OC Dominator RAM. Playing everything in full settings (AC: Odyssey, Borderlands 3, Jedi Fallen Order). Just goes to show what good components, a little overclocking, and taking good care of your rig can do.

    Why do they publish such things?
    Info about great next version just around the corner kills the sales (Osborne Effect).

    I could justify such behavior only if their production and yields barely support current demand, or more likely to prevent people from buying AMD / jumping on Apple bandwagon.

    Also, I like switching to chiplets. This should improve the yields significantly. I hope that they've ironed out the connections, so there would be no greater delay, throughout, interference not thermal issues.

    There is always a great new version just around the corner.

    The actual Wikipedia article suggests that Osborne computers were made obsolete by competition, not by some premature announcement of new models - just like sales of Intel's 14 nm Comet/Rocket Lake CPUs are being killed by current 7 nm Zen 3 processors, rather than future 10 nm Alder Lake or 7 nm Meteor Lake parts.

    Not really follow thing 8big + 8 little? are they drop HT in favor of 8 bigg(performance cores) for 8 small ( lower power cores) ? does that work out to be better or worse or the same as 8core + 8 HT ?

    Would assume the little cores are what are used when the system is idle which bring down idle power usages along with lite works stuff like web browsing??

    Log me out of this. I differentiate between Facts and Opinions. And I am far from anonymous. Same applies to many others.

    And part you kind of missed is that some people disagree with others for sake of disagreeing with specific people, not views/statements themselves.

    But as whole, it is not bad community. Except cases when few specific people decide to chase someone off the forums. I kind of miss few members who left because they did not want to continue being post hunted.

    g3d is still a very nice community imo,relatively.

    tpu is a circus,in comparison.they should have badges for trolling.

    "They are successful so they must be stopped".

    TSMC should have quotas, or if the public sector officials had any brains should have split it to at least three companies.
