OMG TR is run by Intel Shills!

Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:10 pm

I'm going to be busy tomorrow so I won't be able to participate in the usual banter for the 9900k launch.

So I'm going to beat the usual suspects to the punch and throw out some of the usual conspiracy theories here first so that you can just post a link in the comments tomorrow instead of slavishly copying n pasting them.

Let's go!

1. What do you mean you didn't disable half the cores in the 9900K when Intel never provided a utility that expressly does that in game mode with a warning not to ever use game mode on the chips that are overwhelmingly actually used for games and that warning is CLEARLY stated in the third sentence of the second paragraph of page 27 in the instructions nobody ever reads!!! Oh and if Intel actually made software with a ”game mode” setting that was stupid enough to actually HELP game performance we'd accuse you of shilling for them by using it.

1.5 That's so UNFAIR when you disabled half the cores on the 9900K and did the same thing on the 2700X!

1.75 Nobody cares that when you did disable half the cores on the 9900K and left them all running on the 2700x that the frame times still favored Intel!

2. You used RAM in the 9900k system? You paid shills! It wouldn't have beaten Ryzen if you hadn't helped Intel by using RAM!

3. What do you mean you didn't include the 2990WX in the cinebench scores!!!!

4. How DARE you include the 2950X in the gaming benchmarks!

5. Nobody ever overclocks and you are paid shills for even using that word!

6. Kampman FAILED to publicly disclose that Intel never paid for him to test drive Ferraris or any other car on a race track. WE CAN NEVER TRUST ANYTHING YOU SAY AGAIN.

7. Benchmark [insert name of benchmark here] is biased against AMD because reasons. [Bonus points if it's a benchmark AMD uses at its press events]

8. You cheated by not patching your system for
Meltdown/Spectre/whatever!

8.5 You intentionally sabotaged AMD by using systems that are properly patched for Meltdown/Spectre/whatever!

9. You have a DUTY to not review the chip at all and instead write a 6,000 word attack on Intel for illegally taking away the CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT of consumers to delid their chips by using DRM solder!! Using solder under the IHS is clearly an illegal monopoly tactic and good pure companies like AMD would never engage in evil behaviour like that!

And last but not least...
10. You used a REVIEW SAMPLE CHIP?!?!? Only a paid Intel shill would use a review sample chip! But it's fine when AMD does it because reasons!

Oh yeah here's another one:

Only a paid Intel shill would compare an 8 core chip from Intel that's inferior to RyZen in every possible way to an 8 core RyZen! That's anti-AMD cheating!! You should have waited until RyZen2 launches and made sure to drop any benchmarks where RyZen2 doesn't win because fairness!!

Once the comment smoke starts to clear, I hear there's a Pretty good treatment fer what ails ya! and it's reported to be Intel/AMD agnostic, despite comparative core counts, thread counts and benchmark suites:

You forgot to mention the Intel stock cooler vs. AMD Wraith.

Standards are slipping dude!

Chip that is significantly more expensive performs slightly better, water continues to be wet. News at 11.

Always good to know Chuck is thinking about us even when he can't be here.

C'mon, guys, you can set the bar higher than that, can't you?

There may be more efficacious TIMs on the market, butt, Boudreaux's has the huge advantage of of being Dual Purpose, much like "Shimmer" (http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/shimmer-floor-wax/n8625) ... use it as a TIM and then, once you've been sufficiently trolled in the forums, use it to also salve your bad case of Butt Hurt!

I still don't know why Intel haven't switched to toothpaste yet.

It's the obvious choice and despite Boudreaux's Butt Paste not being in the test, I would not expect it to fair any better than Vegemite.

Eh, what sold me was "pleasant scent". Imagine how you can gauge your CPU temp (and by extension, its idle/load state) just by sniffing, instead of firing up some temperature monitoring utility.
