Where i am saying that it will have 5GHz@95W? FX9xxx have 220W TDP and clocks at 4.7/5GHz max. It's a 316mm2 chip. We can't have 220W on a <200mm2 chip, because it would melt. David Kanter on Real World Tech stated in a post that he never seen a chip with more than 1W per mm2 of TDP. I am not saying than you will have 95W@5GHz, but if a 316mm2 chip walls at 5.2GHz of OC, then another chip of 200mm2 walls at 5GHz, probabily the power consumed is not the same of the 316mm2 chip, because the area is smaller... So at same clock we have a chip that consumes less power... So probabily it will clock higher than the corresponding 8c@95W that was the FX8370E, rated at 3.3/4.3GHz... We all already know that the Zen base clock will be at least 3.4Ghz, so my statement is even backed up by official AMD statements. The only unknown is the turbo clock, but since at 5GHz draws less, probabily it will go higher than 4.3...You're right, tag team. Faith makes that 8C 5GHz 95W sound so easily doable
None of your underlying assumptions have any hard data behind them... As explained a tireless amount of times. Unlinked, unconnected or ambiguous data exists but your link/jump from one to another requires a HUGE leap of... Faith.

Stating that mine was faith ridiculize all my reasoning. I spent many time writing my reasoning and condensing all in the word faith, being an atheist, find this hylarious.
I have faith in my reasoning based on facts.
Stating that 5Ghz OC is ridicolous, without proof, is ridicolous...
