    I found some funny things there. Interesting numbers. I would like to have and interview with guy working for intel who proposed this chip and managed to get it out of the door.

    I think he can sell anything. Because I still do not understand this CPU. And maybe he could explain it to me in same meaningful way he persuaded others to make it.

    @HH: I think you did favor to many who would consider this chip.

    He didn't do anything that special, Intel's name just carries a lot of weight and they can do or say whatever they want and people will buy it, without much regard to the price. Kind of like Apple.

    No, I did not mean selling chip to us. He had to persuade all those other product managers there. Technology consultants and anyone who participates on release plans.

    And I would like to hear it all from him. Because many of us may consider his/hers reasoning funny.

    Because looking at that chip and what surrounds it made me finally understand how Xixao from The Gods Must be Crazy felt about those white people.

    Do you even read what you type? If you're going to make such a bold claim like that, you're going to have to provide proof of your nonsense, and provide proof the same thing does not happen to intel.

    But, i know you're not going to do that, because your post history indicates you will do whatever you can to bash AMD, over exagerate things, or even make up lies, and overall troll on anything to do with AMD.

    Seems to me this CPU simply allows ready-built system etailers to advertise the X299 entry level rigs at $100 lower prices which amounts to ~10%. 'powered by Intel X299 X-treme performance' etc...and it's not as if it's underpowered for the RX560 or 1050 it'll typically get teamed up with at the relatively low advertised prices. Everything else inside the system may be OEM and cheap as f@ck, but the X299 chipset is just that.

    i agree also with the bans also ! Criticism and pointing out why you disagree in a respectful manner is more than welcome i feel just straight up cursing and attacking has no place anywhere .

    Don't know where your head was at on this line of procs Intel. Not really better than an OC'ed i5 7600k, and the entry price for X299 is not worth it IMHO. Especially with no quad channel memory.
