Why I don’t need a Coffee Lake CPU

EnglishHardwareRant No comments - Kagamin

Let me state this… I think the author of this video is right. But I have many problems with the means in order to reach the maximum performance. And why the heck Intel uses sh*tty thermal paste between the IHS and the die for an overclockable CPU? But I digress…

In order to get your overclockable Coffee Lake CPU to perform much better than Ryzen, you have to:

  • buy a delid tool
  • delid your CPU
  • risk to rekt your CPU
  • void your warranty
  • buy liquid metal thermal compound
  • apply the compound and reseal the CPU
  • buy or have a beefy cooler (like a Cryorig R1 or Noctua NH-D14/15)
  • have a high-end motherboard

Well, that’s quite a bit demand (read: unreasonable) for a performance boost.

One of my friend linked me this gemstone. My reaction to this one was…

Man, f*ck gravity!

My favourite quotes from this message:

  • “Is Intel really planning on making this shit architectural? Has anybody talked to them and told them they are f*cking insane?”
  • “And that’s actually ignoring the much _worse_ issue, namely that the whole hardware interface is literally mis-designed by morons.”

These ones are made me giggle. 😀

Update: Bryan Lunduke also uploaded a video about Linus’ reaction.

Argh, Intel…

Let’s summarize what he said:

  • So they are into data center stuff… that’s great.
  • We are screwed up but the others too so that’s okay. Derp!
  • We will do some damage control that slows down your CPU but not that much… Hurr!
  • We are the next-gen recording miracle. 
  • We will follow the greatest trend after RGB everything… THE VR THINGY!
  • Oh… neural networking that’s cool stuff.
  • Quantum supremancy from a company that couldn’t make a decent GPU and now using their competitor’s solution… again great.
  • Hidden cameras on the car are impressive.
  • The Trolocopter…
  • And finally a small indoor-capable drone. That’s decent.
