Why is intel purposefully slowing down their own cpu's?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Lets be honest, they know about the whole Ivy bridge TIMM situation, and they dont seem to care, its honestly disgusting, I would gladly pay the $20 dollar difference of the putting some half decent **** on the IMC. I mean its a pain in the ass, to delid and swap, it sucks but the temps are much much better.
They released haswell and guess what, same ****tty ass problem. come on now, u know they are playin us, why purposefully gimp ur product for the value of a 14.99 consumer paste on the IMC, I mean they could talk to artic and pay the total of 2.99 it would cost to throw some paste on before closing it up in place of that rubber turd they used.

Because you'll buy it anyway. You'll either deal with it, which means you bought it and they made money, or you'll delid it, which also means you bought it and they got money AND Intel doesn't have to warranty it.

Back when intel separated the enthusiast platform from the performance platform, I didnt get the reason, but starting to see reason now. You can tune for power efficiency or max MHZ, but likely not both.

Haswell was designed/tuned as a mobile cpu as that is where the future growth/money lies, ie power efficiency took precedence over all else. 4770k is just a mobile cpu maxed out with unlocked multi and IHS/paste slapped on. No reason to purposely gimp chips... they are designed without any thought whatsoever about overclocking or max speed...they are tuning for max power efficiency.

The enthusiast platform at 130w TDP isnt going in any mobile cpus given high TDP.

Looks like we are going to have 2 choices. 1) move to enthusiast platform, like $500 version cpus with Haswell E (VRzone article today) will get 8 cores, and you will get solder with that high TDP, and have cpus likely tuned to overclock better, as they will be with more mature stepping/improvements. Or 2) stay on performance platform, use mobile designed cpus with IHS/paste slapped on, although you get the newest technology, though with less mature steppings, that may, ie Haswell not overclock as well.

Not really thrilled with either choice....though if Haswell E comes out with 8 cores in late 2014, I will make switch to enthusiast platform...unless Haswell refresh is ocing much better, with better thermals (doubt latter part).
