What ? not helpful ? Its not my job to help Intel, they screwed themselves. And, "2nd half of 2024" just agrees with my statement that I see no real progress for at least 2 years. Servers ? Not a hint that anything competitive is on the horizon. Desktop ? It may be good at gaming, but at what cost ? (power wise) A CPU is not good until it is fast and efficient. One of the two only makes it somewhat useful, not good IMO. When Intel can actually compete on a level playing field, talk to me then and see how I feel. And the 6000 series mobile ? At least the first few reviews look like AMD has that wrapped up.Intel does have a working Intel 18A wafer, it is just not what we care about for it is SRAM and not fancy SoCs / Desktop / Workstation / Server CPUs. What I am trying to signify is that Intel is in the liminal space where their claims could be sane or could be insane, we do not know and will not know until the 2nd half of 2024 (and actual chips in computers way past that.)
What I am trying to signify is I take any intel roadmap claims with a grain of salt for they been wrong since 2014, that is 8 years of grief. Yet it may be possible and saying the "insane" word I feel is not helpful.
MY summary (opinion)
server -- all AMD
HEDT -- all AMD
desktop -- mixed Intel has gaming, and single thread, AMD has multi-thread and efficiency
mobile -- AMD ahead in 6000 series, but yes, its early. So slight edge to AMD.
Woud you say Intel is doing anywhere close to well ? I don't think so. Compare that to what is coming out of their marketing, and THATS insane.
