    @Jasper Störningar there are also older overpriced AMD CPUs (see Anandtech conclusion chart) and they don't come with iGPUs like Intel's which Iris Pro/Plus also lead in speed/watt. So Linus is dumbass like your kind who can't account for everything. Why don't I paste my notes so far of the best desktop leaders?

    @Jasper Störningar Intel lead desktop speed/watt for almost all power classes. AMD underreport 9 3950X's TDP by 20% to 40%; see the Anandtech report.

    Pathetic? Intel has already shifted its primary focus to commercially viable "quantum computing". This is what isn't clear: the personal computer market no longer represents its deep core business.

    Why not wait till AMD's embargo drops too and just release both videos at the same time. Embargo does not mean "you must release that exact second" does it? Be sensible.

    Oh no are the canadians gonna dump their maple syrup into the harbor? I like how no one understands that both processors are designed to run Windows 10 x86 architecture at the same speed.

    Every Linus or any other cooperate shill mislead pc builder needs to see this video Get a 7700k used, which is effectively 8 cores at a rocking clock speed, for $250 on eBay. Delid and overclock and you have yourself the fastest CPU you'll need for the next 5 years. He's over here pushing AMD 32 core CPUs like any person on earth needs it other than enterprise video editors like they are a GREAT VALUE!!!!! GPU is where you spend your money bc that where you will see a tangible benefit. CPUs, for examples a 7th gen i5 are already more than powerful enough to run a OC'd 2080ti. The GPU is the engine of the car you want and the CPU at this point is equal to the rims. Faster the engine more the fun.. As long as the rims are safe and look nice you will be able to enjoy your fast engine... No need to get 4k per rim HREs.... Come on people. 8+ cores is not needed so it can never be considered a value!!!!!! Do you buy everything the car salesman pitches you??? This is the same thing!!!! Don't buy the pitch, thats all this is!
