    Intel: "Theres no way you can beat us, you haven't put out a good CPU in 6 years!"
    AMD: "Okay, heres a 32 core flagship that matches your chips IPC performance."
    Intel: "Shit uhhhh, well here! 28 cores!"
    AMD: "Bet. 64 cores"

    If I wanna build a workstation and i have only this 2 choices wiich one would be better? AMD Threadripper 2990WX 32cores or INTEL i9 7980XE/9990XE 18cores

  • Rev Eance

    I don't get that logic. Why would AMD do all that only to get benchmarks that are 2x as fast as anything Intel has to offer only to give them the finger? I mean even if it's barely 2 as fast, in what world does that not add insane value? There are a lot of applications that can utilize the cores that will finish in 2 times the amount of time, while not having to pay at least triple the amount for an Epyc with similar CPU performance? Epyc sure has benefits over Threadripper in some applications but when having mostly just heavy CPU usage applications you're basically getting an equivalent value for better than 1/3th of the price.

    You Tube algorithms are failures for regular small creators.....if I upload a gameplay video I get like 30 views....but a big TheXvidr can upload a video of paint drying and it gets shown to millions of viewers, thus picking up millions of views. Blatantly unfair. Thanks TheXvid.

    Stupid fucks buy the 9980XE just cause it's the most expensive processor. I doubt people with brains buy the 64-core threadripper, but I bet a lot of rich fucks will just buy it for bragging rights.

    I may not speak for the norm, but I come to LTT for Linus. While I enjoy some of the other employees who take their turn hosting, I thoroughly like Linus and all he does.

  • Steven Zimdin
    Steven Zimdin Month ago

    I prefer Linus as a host. He started it, he grew in it and I actually trust Linus more than other hosts / youtubers. And ofc linus has stayed linus. youtube changes people.. thank god that it hasn't happened with linus (okey there were some times where linus seemed littlebit... weird, but it grew out).
    I don't follow almost any other youtube channel and I will probably not follow you guys as much as I do at the moment, if linus would not host anymore.

    Linus stay grounded. Five years ago would you be excited with your current status?? Maybe you are in the same conundrum TheXvid is in when they stopped reporting new unique users. You are in a niche and considering language barrier it is even smaller. You are getting annually more viewers and viewership than the Super Bowl. The question you need to ask is if nothing changes could you do this for the rest of you life and be happy?

    I appreciate Linus's openness to discuss the possibility of not being liked as much as a host. I enjoy both Linus & other hosts. Seems like new hosts start out a bit awkward but get better with practice. I watch LMG for the quality of explanations, experiments, subjects I'm interested in, & entertainment.

    I don't give a crap about how many cores. I want a massive gain in processing speed. Cores are meaningless if software and hardware are not coded to use them.

    Threadripper is a Halo product. Halo products aren't supposed to be sold in mass amounts. But for an enthusiast that wants to build the most insane rig out there, telling him to stick with AM4 doesn't fly, just like Intel and their 28-core attempt at joining the market. You seemed insulted when Intel didn't send you a test rig for it, yet you say it has no purpose? It's a showcase product like the Ford GT. Chevy or Dodge, or most non-exotic car makers don't have anything that can touch it, but they still made it, and immediately sold out of it even at half a million bucks starting price... It's not meant to sell a bunch, it's overpowered, and overpriced, but some people still want it.
    Ultimately, it looks good for the company and the brand to have that niche market locked down. If threadripper was meant to only be a workstation CPU, why are the boards so flashy? Why not just have them on Supermicro green PCB type server boards? Because above all else, they're a showcase product, and can't be replaced by Epyc, no matter how similar they are. Not continuing the Threadripper line would be a disappointment not only for people who want to buy it, but people who love to see builds and benchmarks using it. I don't get as excited for server products. Maybe it's the lack of RGB... who knows...
    As for 64 cores, why not? If people are willing to pay it. Maybe start off with 48 cores for the this generation threadripper, that could keep heat to a minimum by not having 2 of the chiplets. That way it still isn't quite Epyc, can probably be overclocked, and gives the enthusiasts and the pro-sumer something new to tinker with.

    I'm not a "hater", but I imagine that the thing people have a bigger problem that with you using a comp'd video card in a build is just how big your channel has grown, where you don't seem to be able to say anything negative about anyone (so you're not keeping it "real")

    As an example, someone pointed out in a recent video (some time in the last couple of days) that you were doing an Origin PC ad spot despite having rated them lowly in a side-by-side comparison a few months back. I haven't verified this by going back to the video in question, but the perception is out there that you've "sold out" to some extent.

    I think the best way to address this is to do what you've been doing with having other hosts and other segments dedicated to more in-depth, critical reviews, and keeping yourself as the "face" of the company in order to maintain the business relationships you've built (so run your Origin PC ads, but let Anthony or whomever do the breakdowns as to whether the Origin PC is "worth it").

    If people are getting their feelings hurt because a tech channel can manage to get a hold of a video card and install it in a gaming machine they are in the wrong place watching your channel in the first place.

    Threadripper 3 isnt a product, its a statement or pure dominance. People buy into this shit. Whether it's consumers buying ryzen 3 because amd is where the hype is at, which attracts investors in the short and long term. AMD are saying even if intel pull a miracle we can still kick them down into the ground. If amd can afford to develop a basically uselessly overpowered cpu whilst still kicking arse on the consumer level, who in their right mind would invest in Intel.

    Getting hate for working hard and getting rewarded by a sponsoring company is ridiculous. It's not like Linus shows up, Does nothing and gets free stuff. He has a company and put forth the effort and influence to be respected enough to be offered things by other companies as a pat on the back for being a friend. Any haters just don't want to put in the hard work themselves to get an opportunity like that. I'm broke and upset I'm running on 4 year old hardware that was mid-range then but I'm not crying because Linus got free crap.. Some people are just so petty. If Linus wants to stay the face he should stay the face. Don't cater to the petty saps who can't handle someone else working harder than themselves.

    64 core? Hell Yea!! You have to consider, Adobe shot themselves in the foot over the price increase sending people to Davinci etc. More of those types of programs are coming into the main stream for content etc. What is lacking so far is a high end graphics card for the main stream to go along with it. A slap at Intel? I'll take that all day long! I personally am hoping since it is said to be 64 core that it is 7nm. That makes sense on function.

    I would disagree that Zen 2 TR is unnecessary. The 2990WX suffers from being NUMA, which is resolved with Zen 2 by the IO die, and AM4 doesn't get the quad channel memory or the additional PCIe lanes that come with TR. Additionally, I don't see any way AMD could produce a 64 core part that isn't Zen 2 based on 7nm. They can't fit eight Zen or Zen+ zeppelins under the TR/EPYC IHS and there's no way they'd commission some kind of custom die to fit 64 last-generation cores.

It's funny how It's okay for the Corporate kiss ASS to build a 7in 1 with dual 28 core processors but the moment AMD comes forth with a solution , ( 64 core ), you want to bad mouth them and talk shit!!!! STOP being a BITCH and give the Credit where credit is due!!

    TheXvid cant be trusted to promote or demote anything. There needs to be an independent body, not some American construct. Ambivalence is the danger here, and that's why your viewership is decreasing, Linus. Its not you, its just everything has become over saturated.

  • Kage Song
    Kage Song 2 months ago

    Okay, pausing. LINUS if people are mad that you have sponsors that support you, (IE they make sure you have cool stuff to show off, and therefore you have cool stuff) then they just shouldn't watch this sort of channel. I streamed for a bit, and I had people that made sure I had stuff to stream. It's called business, and in the ENTERTAINMENT AND EDUCATION business, you need top of the line. The tech companies need you to have top of the line.
