Most of them know they are wrong but they keep living in denial due to their ego got hurt badly. Especially hardcore fans, imagine they bought recently very expensive 64-core EPYC expecting buying the CPU based on the best core on market. And know you tell them that A13 in iPhone has almost double PPC? In other words saying their EPYC is based on slow outdated uarch and Apple has advantage in core development about 4-5 years?People who think x86 has some unique advantages over ARM have their heads in the sand. I guess it will take Apple releasing the first ARM Macs to finally admit this, though I imagine some will still manage to find a few things x86 does better and try to claim those are the things that really matter.
But the sad thing is that due to this ignorance this forum lost smart guys like Andrei and Nothingness. I asked moderator if they are OK about loosing those smart people. He answered me that's OK and there will be no change in this trend. And this is super sad, because CPU trends cannot be stopped at this forum and big ARM rise will happen anyway. Maybe Andrei started his own AnreiTech.com up?
More moderation callouts. They are still not allowed.
And no moderator said what you claimed above about losing "smart people".
That's plain false.
