Intel resorts to dirty marketing during their Skylake SP Xeon Launch

Intel calls AMD Naples a "glued-together" solution and compares a $2,200 Xeon to a underclocked $499 Ryzen 1800X.



Read more on Intel's marketing tactics during their Skylake SP reveal.

Tit for tat. AMD's marketing idiots have taken tons of shots at Nvidia while falling flat on their faces with Vega, so good for Intel. AMD deserves it. Every company does crap like this.

They are at least partially right - AMD does categorically have a "poor track record" in the server space and it will take more than one generation of their EPYC product line to make a dent into most server-buyer's expectations of them. I've been buying servers for over a quarter of century and have nothing but bad experiences with AMD across that time and this tallies with everyone I know who's even tried them - we still have very bad tastes in our mouths over AMD and this will not change any time soon.

I dare say that EPYC will have some benefits over Purley - I'm sure there are people out there who have been testing them both for months *ahem* - value being the key standout for AMD - but they do have a poor record and while I'm not confirming or denying 'inconsistent performance' let me say that I understand that statement.

Either way at least AMD will eventually force Intel to be more competitive - and ideally not confuse their larger customers with 58 different SKUs!

AMD marketting shots at Nvidia made me laugh too.

But how nice of Intel to provide detail description in a very articulate way by saying

"4 Glued-together desktop dies"

Oh agreed entirely! That's why this stuff makes me completely sick. These are ADULTS engaging in this behavior. Adults who act like downs syndrome kids (aka AMDs marketing team).
