Is Intel throwing in the towel?
For now they don't really have a choice, they've squeezed all they could out of that 14nm+++++∞ cow and 10nm still isn't ready for prime time...
And they just announced they would manufacture their GPUs on TSMC's 7nm+: https://www.reuters.com/article/technologyNews/idUSKBN29H0EZ
Well my son couldn't wait any longer, we still went intel because you can't get current gen AMD. 10600K for him, that is still plenty strong. I can assure the audience that was not the plan, this was supposed to be a 5600x.
In sports and now in tech, availability is a great ability.
As for sockets, for a lot of us, does it even matter? Are we really upgrading CPU's all that often? If you are, sure, but it you wait like 5+ I would just expect a whole new bottom end.This comment was edited on Jan 12, 2021, 22:04.
