These new Intel CPUs, while the power consumption is embarrassing, still easily beats AMD in gaming. I really hope Ryzen 4000 does a little better in this regard, their 3700X is an excellent value I hope the 4700X delivers.
Easily beat AMD? At least it was worth an afternoon chuckle. CPUs no longer are the apex of gaming, the GPU has taken over that role. Having a slightly faster CPU is not going to do much in many games. Yes the Intel CPU is a shade faster, but inordinately more expensive as you need an expensive cooler and lots of fans in the case to run it. I guess if you want to heat your house with your gaming computer there might be some benefit there.
As to Elon, he is still a visionary. As we are finding out those fools completely shutting down their states are only doing a good job of destroying their economies. As we see in Sweden, a total shutdown was not needed. Protecting the elderly was the serious issue here and the total shutdown actually made that worse. Hopefully everyone will learn from this mess because there will be a next time. Getting rid of clueless politicians on both sides of the aisle will be a first step, but my premonition is that people will not learn.
