But if this $999 cpu was the best in games then it would suck in workstation workloads and no one would pay 1k for a gaming cpu when a 300 can run games just fine. Unlike content creators and video editors that do that for a living and spend hours and hours rendering. There is a potential target group to sell a 1k cpu. You got a point but for another cpu. TR is not for gaming and you are mistaken if you were expecting this to be a gaming cpu. You can't expect to perform better in games just because you paid more. Trucks cost more but they are not as fast as a GTI.
