He got the TDP, core count, boost clock and SKU number correct. All that left is the price. It is not by luck on this.
Actually, no, he didn't get any of those right, which would mean he might have been tricked by a source claimed to be an insider, or intentionally gave him wrong numbers, since he never validated his source anyways.
I have no problem with Jim being wrong about leaks or rumors before announcement, since those things happen... but it is more about how he vigorously defended his claims and calling out people who questioned his "leaks" before computex, and how he is not willing to admit he is wrong after his leaks were proven false and even went on to criticize AMD for putting out "high price" for Ryzen 3 series.
