an installer package for hardware always = driver!

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I agree, people are buying Ryzen for it's present performance. Anything added for free is free goodies.

In the enterprise world microcode updates for end user and server class processors and chipsets are very common.

Be it correcting bugs, CPU microcode errata, controller updates, security patches, it's pretty darn common

I'd say it's only become more prevalent in the consumer space because modern CPUs are so damn complex architecturally and employ complex algorithms and adaptive logic that development never really stops

I see it just like driver updates and it also means maybe the 3000's have more to offer and the older Gen 1 and 2 may get improvements also as AMD always offers a longer life plan for the product.

Free Performance (TM) is not a thing. It just means that your product is broken.
I think it is the complexity of modern hardware and software coupled with increased consumer knowledge and connectivity to the internet. When we got broken games back in the day they were pretty much broken/bugged forever, a fault in hardware was a characteristic.

Prior to the internet, most of the time games were polished and you could finish them. Also with no internet, you could trade your PC games for new ones. The internet made everyone lazy and greedy.

I do remember one game though, forgot the name, where you're a wizard and you could use a lab to make new spells and then RTS style go against hoards of enemies. I got to the last fight, tough as anything you can imagine, and just before I could give the final death blow to the main villain, the game crashed. The bottom of my stomach ached since the fight to get to that point was epic. I tried several times and died many more times in the process but the game would always crash at that integral point.

That game was called " Perseverance"

Great point about the internet's effect on games btw.

One more reason to stay a gen or two behind.

Now, if only I could follow my own advice, lol
