Well this is interesting to say the least. What do they hope to gain? They all ship with the cooler, it's not like they could sneak them into the box during packaging. They'd have to sell them and it wouldn't sell much...

Yeah, the only real use case is for APUs or Ryzen 5 SKUs. It's very odd. Between the trademark infringement and lack of a meaningful market (it's not like Intel CPUs can use these), I find it odd that this even exists.

Yes, they perform well in the graph, but Wraith sounds like a jet engine when compared to 212.

I'd suspect a possible proof of concept? Show how much better these are than the normal Wraith in the hopes AMD will adopt the design?

Either that or they're getting made for the Chinese market, who knows
