      @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.

    Well, It's good that AMD is now in rise and I wish them luck, their team did really great job, I am in the Intel team and I will forever be, my friends are considering AMD over Intel. Well you know, I remember when even thinking about AMD was a joke. It is hard to be the best all the time, Intel had to fall to understand and learn from their mistakes. It is truth that they are still running 14nm obsolete technology (obsolete in terms of CPU makers). Intel should say: Well done AMD, great CPU! And no to try convince everyone that they still hold the flag, consumers nowadays are NOT IDIOTS and specially not people in IT sector, thinking about telling sh!t and people will eat it is VERY STUPID and only proof that marketing team of Intel is rubbish. Just admit it, they finally catch up after decade. Now is your turn Intel to produce great chip again, but please without any sh!t, just do the great chip. By the way, AMD ATI company value combined is 43 billion USD, Intel ONLY company value is 243 billion USD, so much for switching to AMD..

    Not much of a victory when a 10300 129$ CPU will still beat a 950$ 3950x in gaming.

    first part of Linus's video - are you kidding me with this 10980XE?! Intel is run by chickenshit, weasels. Dunkey- Man, he must hate this shit. Linus- It has a little something for everyone. *[roll credits]* but also, intel be sneaky.

    My first cpu was a i7 3770k, it was great, then like 2 years ago I got the i7 8086k, not bad. But it will be my last, AMD is killing them and seems to be working with customers in mind. Nvm the price to performance, they are just getting better than intel over all. And they are shady to their customers. My next CPU will be the ryzen 9 3950x

    this means the true price of 9980xe was 999$, so basically they overprized it by 100%.

    I love this video sooooo much. If you have ever taken Econ 101 you would know that every time you spend a dollar you are negotiating with the producer that it is worth your money. When you pass it up, you send a message. Gamers are the only consumers that use this fact to its full potential and its all because of knowledgeable peeps like Linus here. I might wind up buying a hoodie if LTT keeps this up.

    Love the blurred out benchmarks at the top of each graph. Hmmmm, I wonder what that could possibly be for, is that possibly some new CPU that Intel is too afraid to compete with? Nooooo, couldn't be 😏 Way to say fuck it to Intel and put the AMD benchmarks in there anyway (kinda), proud of ya.

      my guess is the sponsorship deal they have explicitly requires a live ad read. I know that's been pretty common in the podcasting world for years now
