Do you guys simply watch Adored vids with the volume off?
I've been watching since before Ryzen and Vega launched. He always prefaces with "Speculation" and "Speculative" based on "leaks" and personal knowledge.
If you can do better, simply put together your own YT channel and let er rip.
Based on his speculation he may be wrong, but he's a lot closer than most. At the end of the day, every rumor is subject to change during the manufacturing process. I am not sticking up for the guy because I think that he's spot on, but because he's willing to put time into the rumors of impending AMD product. I've no idea what his Biases are but given that Intel has been sucking their consumer market dry over less than 5% gains over their previous SKU-lines, it's nice to see content regarding their competition. Even if it is speculative in Nature.
One thing you cannot predict where CPUs are concerned is how memory will play with them. Nobody saw RAM issues pre-reviewer samples. Then we found out after launch that any old RAM is not just any old RAM. I guess AMD should have accounted for the egregious Intel Love from the Memory Manufacturing side of things and that their new architecture may not play nice with RAM that was geared toward Intel processors.
I went all in with my R7 1800x purchase at Launch. $500. I learned from that and won't be going all in on future purchases, because it ate up 2 years of warranty coverage sitting in the box and waiting on Motherboard and RAM. I woulda gone with the CVIHero had there been no issues with RAM. But since there were I sat out til the market stabilized and had a better understanding of what was actually going on.
My next upgrade will wait for a bit as I have some time left on this CPU. When I get everything the way I want it, then I will likely Lapp the CPU and keep using it on another platform while I put an R9 on this board and ride it out til CVIIIIHero releases. Change to that board and rinse and repeat.
I just find it laughable how many people are quick to tear someone (who is at the least insightful) down, when they aren't willing to put themselves out there to do the same. You may not agree with him but don't whiz on his method if he's not 100%. If he were 100% every time, then his sources would stop updating him as their NDA would land them in hot water.
