I find it very strange that they have decided to do a 6c 6t CPU. I'm wondering how it would stack up to a 4c 8t CPU. I also see they are doing a locked one, so I would guess that would be quite expensive in order to rail you into the more expensive one.

TIM or no TIM that´s the question i would like to be answered.

but i guess it already is.... intel will not change.

it´s a real shame, sandy bridge was such a nice cpu and part of it was because it was soldered.

There was a point where pretty much all of the manufacturers would let you push your hardaware to destruction. Especially GPUs. However, I remember speaking to BFG before they went out of business (it was literally days before they closed their doors) and they were telling me that the 200 series Nvidia GPUs were their worst ever. They had thousands of returns, and no product to replace it with (because Nvidia ended production).

BFG went down because of this and because of their amazing warranty. I would imagine Nvidia and indeed others learned a lot from that, because now they lock the voltage and there is absolutely no way around it.

I mentioned this before, and it did have some sense to it. Intel could well be using TIM to make their chips run at higher temps preventing people from pushing them to destruction. Sandy was soldered, and with Sandy they offered a tuner's guarantee where you paid like £15 and they would replace your CPU no matter how you popped it. Yeah see, I don't think they do that any more.

I've also still got this nag in the back of my brain telling me that Ryzen are artificially locked at 4ghz. Doesn't any more find it really strange that no one has managed to get more than that on a consistent basis? I could be wrong on the AMD part of course, it may just be bad luck.

However, yeah, going back to the point I think that hardware manus hate dealing with RMA. It's basically giving away free product. GPUs hardly ever fail now, unless of course some one breaks it fitting a water block or modding etc. I rarely see friends having to send hardware back.

Intel are not a dumb ass outfit. They know what they are doing, and they are doing it for a reason.

I had to RMA my BFG GTX 285 because it couldn't handle the factory overclock without BSODing. The replacement I got was the same but rather than go another 2 weeks without a usable machine I just flashed the BIOS with the stock clocks. Used it for about 5 years with no problems, other than the racket from the crappy blower.

Tim hoping for TIM. As a consumer, it's easy to do something about it. The 90% that's not going to have any issues will have a good product that will work in the long run.
And the 10% can solve the problem, and if you want to go really extreme bare die is possible.

This looks more like the "real" move from Intel, it seems as a natural replacement to the 7700k. Not as the rushed x299 platform.

If so, these might be worth waiting for.

I'm excited for these, as a 144Hz player sacrificing single-threaded performance doesn't sound too appealing. Probably going to have to delid these but oh well.
