You sure highlight what is convenient to your views. But whatever... To what you say here I answer; Even if the last couple of leaks of this specific source have all been solid? Even if we have a whole line-up with cores, threads, pricing, and naming, rather than one invented CPU leak like your reference article?
And I'll add this to the mix... Go back to 2015- 2016 and say that AMD will come up with an 8C/16T mainstream CPU for around $300. How many believed it? How many said it was too good to be true? And yet, that is what happened.
I understand the argument for skepticism regarding leaks. But I also understand dismissive attitudes and denial.
I am not defending the leaks as such, but there is nothing unreasonable about them.
