Obviously, Intel isn't even close to AMD, yet again. This reminds me of the original AMD dinner party attended by Intel employees back in ~1999, IIRC. At the dinner, AMD presented some details about the brand new upcoming Athlon CPU. It was said by everyone there that as AMD explained what the K7 was, under the hood--that the Intel attendees who had been very jovial and talkative
sat there with their eyes open, with their jaws dropped, gaping--as AMD explained how much further ahead AMD had taken CPU designs than had apparently ever occurred to Intel. The story has always stuck with me after all these years...;) Difference between that AMD and the current AMD--this AMD isn't stopping with Zen 2--but is already at Zen 3 with Zen 4 in design even as we speak. Today's AMD won't sit still and allow Intel to catch up--let alone surpass them. I never did understand AMD dropping the ball after Athlon/A64/and Opteron--instead of building on their successful foundation--they tried again to invent the wheel--and the result was the lackluster Bulldozer, IIRC.
It is well known that I don't make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in something I have written, you can be confident in the fact that *I* did not write it.
