    All of you crying about being too poor to afford this, you DON'T NEED THIS. You clearly don't have a high paying job that requires these kind of workloads so yeah you can't afford it but you also don't need it. You gaming nerds don't need 18 cores lmao, most video games still do not take advantage of even quad cores.

    I love you Linus so this is not personal, only my Asperger's and OCD kicking in.
    The rule is not literal but phonetic. Americans and Canadians should say, "a historic". As Brits accents evolved and they forgot how to pronounce the letter H, (much to the dismay of Henry Higgins), they are correct in saying, "an (h)istoric"
    American media started saying it a few years ago and everyone followed suit. I'm nobody but you can reach the people. Lead them to freedom. Thanks for all the awesome vids!

    "megatasking"/multitasking is decided by the programming of the software, not hardware limitations. internet explorer crashes with 6 tabs open while firefox works just fine with 100+ tabs. Or like how w10 with the same hardware runs the same games in lower FPS than w7.(independent of dx12)

    laughing nutter 3 months ago

    Wait till 2023/24 this item would be redundant by then you could probably buy the cpu for £100 or less whichever is better. Not spending £2,000 for the best i9 cpu around give it another 5/6 years you will find this cpu cheaply without hurting your wallet.

    ECC = NO = WORKSTATION = NO. The market that buys these are doing serious work and stability is key. Turn it on, half the cost and you may have a chance against AMD TR's.
    Intel with all their million variants can't align across market. AMD and Intel seems to have swapped hats.
