Intel 9XXX series shenanigans

intel
nonsense

#1

Just happened to browse for Intel 9 series news and came across this wonderful piece of reporting on PCGamesN

So I looked at the article they refer to from Principled Tech

Apparently according to @PrincipledTech @Intel is able to run Ryzen & Threadripper Chips on Z370 and Z390 :thinking:

I’m impressed intel…

Ok just what is going on with those performance numbers…

Your tables have a column titled “Performance advantage for Intel® Core™ i9-9900K” with TM and Registered trademark tags!

Every column is like that, they all presume that the 9900K will be faster every time, even when compared to an i9-9980XE or 9900X etc.

It shows that the tester desires a specific outcome.

Oh ok then. I time travelled back to 2005. :joy::rofl:

Did that PC guy from the verge write this article?

Had to read this three times.

Arguably most of the demonstrated gaming performance boost from the Intel chip comes down to its higher clock speed, as opposed to the more ephemeral advantage of the extra pair of cores and higher thread-count. We don’t know what Z390 board Intel was using, or whether it was capable of hitting a 5GHz all-core speed out-of-the-box, so the actual clock speed of the chip is a bit of a mystery.

The file metadata on the PDF really amuses me.

Created with Adobe InDesign CC on a Mac and the date is wrong.

Created on October 8th 2018 at 3:36PM UTC.

Who goes to the effort to create a Technical report like this with InDesign CC?
And then still screws up the table.

But gets the later details right


#4

It’s because Intel is registered and Core is a trademark of Intel. Just like Ashes of the Singularity is trademarked.


#5

That’s not really the point, rather every column is like that, they all presume that the 9900K will be faster every time, even when compared to an i9-9980XE or 9900X etc.

It shows that the tester desires a specific outcome.

Best for last

Base 3.6Ghz, Boost 5Ghz.

LIke the 8086K and this old tractor don’t exist

oh? I never knew Intel classified my R7 1700 as a high end part :rofl:

Looks like shenanigans, either on Intel’s or Principled tech’s part.

Not buying it. Looks like we will have to wait for “real” benchmarks.


#10

Commissioned by Intel Corp

So practically guaranteed shenanigans.


#11

“First 5.0GHz Broad volume CPU”
Ehm, excuse me, but why isn´t the FX-board melter “broad volume”?


#12

I didn’t know that Intel didn’t consider my R7 1700 and R7 1700X as “mainstream” either.


#13

So how is the i9 9900k for HEDT? and why is it a 8 core 16 threads CPU? If this is for HEDT, does it mean that Threadripper is for SHEDT?


#14

I figure the ™ and ® was a point since you specifically mentioned and bolded it.

I was just commenting that using trademark symbols isn’t anything special for trademarks.


#15

Best processor ever™


#16

Also who thinks people are going to be hella confused between 9900k, 9800X and 9900X? :raising_hand_man:


#17

Intel naming scheme continues to get much more confusing for sure.

not sure if serious.
I’d be amazed if they sold more than 10k units.


#18

Looks like Hardware Unboxed has found the BS in the report.

Steve says the other Steve from Gamers Nexus will be doing their own piece on this soon:


#19

And which ones do and don’t have duper threading amongst other features.


#20

He came out swinging :slight_smile:
