    JeeBee replied to a thread WTF Intel? in CPUs
    Certainly $500 and above is enthusiast. That's why ThreadRipper lives here and 2700X doesn't. Add on the required 200W cooler, the +100W PSU, the...

    Yes, given that Intel has come out to outright deny 10nm is cancelled, and the unlikeliness that Charlie is wrong, that means they have something...

    Power consumption, poor and inadequate TDP advertising, and the need to buy an expensive cooler (200W), whilst the 2700X comes with a suitable cooler...

    JeeBee replied to a thread Consumer Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 in CPUs
    The rumour suggests that each die will be one CCX of 8 cores with Infinity Fabric to an I/O die. Therefore 100mm^2 per die seems fairly reasonable,...

    Rumours get more wild as time passes! Still, no turbo and no xfr and 4.5GHz all-core would be a very nice thing to see from 7nm - better than I am...
