The SKUs aren't proven wrong, as they haven't even been announced.
As per announcement? Was Zen 2 announced at CES? Yes, yes it was. So you're 0/3 so far on disproving anything. Even when he suspects something to be subject to change or fishy, he'll say that outright.
You're really pulling your hair out trying to disprove his leaks, and even then, he's still overall correct.
Remember, at the time, Zen 2 was thought to be a monolithic die with 8c/16t by the mainstream tech press. Reporting on something that early comes with all the caveats that things are subject to change, which he of course wrote about.
No, I'll repeat this and we can come back to it when all is revealed and you can decide if you still want to be his fangirl:
- The prices will be wrong
- The base/boost clocks will be almost entirely wrong
- The SKUs will be nearly all wrong
- The Ryzen 3000 APU info was all wrong (G APUs are 12nm+only for this year).
- The info on Navi will be wrong
So in summary, you say he's 'overrall correct', which is stupid because A: No he isn't and B: the things he might be right about are things anyone could have guessed. For example, 'wow, he guessed there would be a 12-core and 16-core', but we saw with ROME that they doubled cores on 7nm so that was an educated guess. His made-up specs, for example, 4.3Ghz base clock on the 16-core SKU, was anything but educated, it was so dumb I immediately knew his 'leak' was total bull*****.
