    You understand AMD is using those announcements as advertising right?

    So what you're asking is why doesn't AMD stop advertising as much as they do.

    That's.... a valid question. But I doubt you're going to find many execs at AMD who think they are advertising too much. More likely it's going to be the other way around.

    How would you announce something if specifications aren't stabilized yet? You announce something only when you're sure on what and when will hit the market. Or if you're Intel, you announce ARC.

Cheaper, a tad slower, and sips less power. Maybe some other kind of optimization is possible but I doubt it. I am not sure what is there for the producer, they can maybe target another market segment, or maybe just sell lower quality silicon in this way.
    Those models still have turbo, FWIW.

    On the I7-12700K, PL2 is 190 W, whereas the non-K version only drops it to 180 W. So, depending on whether your motherboard will boost indefinitely, simply buying the "65 W" version may not be a solution, at all.

    Okay, so just don't read them after you already think you know enough. Problem solved.

    I'm like that with rumor articles. I don't read every one that comes along, or pay any particular one much heed.

    These companies are going to announce stuff on their own schedule, and also to mess with their competitors. That's just how it is. Luckily, there will not be a test, so just ignore it if you're not interested!

    Theoretically, power management could achieve better efficiency, if it knew the envelope it's working within. You can do things like not spin up turbo as high, and thereby sustain it for enough additional time to get more work done. In practice, they might indeed behave similarly.

    And didn't KNL have 2x AVX-512 FMA per core? I think Zen4 has only the equivalent of 1 FMA per core, though it can also do 512-bits add/cycle, plus 512-bits of load or store. Not to mention much higher clock speeds and higher memory bandwidth than even KNL's MCDRAM.

    With these crazy-high core counts and CXL.mem for expandability, I wonder if they might even drop support for dual-CPU, at some point. I think one of the main use cases for multi-CPU is just to scale up memory capacity.

    They're different products released at different times.

    amd should have one announcement meeting a year. server cpus, desktop cpus, mobile cpus, desktop gpu and datacenter gpus. what is the point on dragging this all out? they have way too many pr people giving themselves busy work.
