You need more samples to draw any conclusions.
Yes, but he 'helps' the test by running these processors at excessive voltages under 100% load with random short breaks in tests to create as many hot/cold cycles as possible. In my opinion this is one of the worst case scenarios for a PC and proves that our 7nm products are still quite robust and will last many years without significant degradation.
To me this was a very good test and well executed, definitely gives some good indication for the rate of potential degradation due to high overclock for people who worry about these things. Of course having more samples is always better and would be welcomed.
