You realize by confirming that this is the same guy leaking you information, in a previously documented case with AMD, that you might get him in trouble again?I accidentally got him in trouble, but was not fully liable, the mod of the forum we discussed forgot to make the link untraceable and it was traced to source, he got a reprimand from AMD. Basically his information to me is me asking questions IE: if my calculation is correct, Ryzen at 3.7Ghz scores 1602 and at 4.1Ghz scores ~1750 give and take .15% margin of error depending on setup. and he would respond by say, I can confirm that is 100% correct.
He has had to correct information regularly but that is due to AMD firmware updates, initial samples had horrible turbo boost issues to the point it was just more sane to turn off. Lets say I trust him, and thankfully he didn't get removed from AMD's testing list and thankfully he has been able to help sort the fake from teh real. I think there may be one ore two secret surprises to come, but we can accept it is far and beyond what Bulldozer was. In fact I have practically forgotten about that AMD.
I have somewhat of a fancrush on Lisa Su, I will admit I didn't like the decision at first but I got it wrong.
