I was specific about the SKU but you seem to have a need to distort reality and are trying to deflect. Intel pushed clocks more than they can afford with the 7700k.Ah yes, that's why the mobile parts have much higher single/all-core turbo boost speeds compared to their SKL counterparts, because efficiency went down. Sure
All that matters is delivered performance, and whether it's delivered through IPC enhancement, or circuit/process enhancements, or some combination of both doesn't really matter.
When i said that taller fins are not architectural, i was addressing your claim that higher clocks are achieved with architectural improvements and, yet again, you feel the need to put a certain corporate entity into a positive light by deflecting.
I had no idea that you have feelings for a corporation, i wouldn't have engaged you otherwise.Won't make that mistake again.
