This is one of the most FABLED CPUs in Intel's line-up... and I finally got my hands on 2 of them. Was it worth the hassle?

I love how he is all tech savvy but doesn’t wear a anti static wrist strap when installing cpu 😡

The high heat production in too small of a space of many modern CPUs is WHY our parent company went from CMOS substrates to full GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) substrates for our custom CPUs! The much wider traces (280 nanometres to 400 nanometres) of Gallium Arsenide DOES NEED higher frequencies at higher voltages/higher current BUT is much easier to cool because we can DIP the entire chip substrate into an ultra-clean (i.e. really, really pure!) non-conductive coolant fluid and NOT short-circuit and/or ablate or scour the substrate lines and various circuit layers. ALL future CPUs and GPUs from every manufacturer WILL SOON ENOUGH be going to large-form-factor GaAs substrates having direct contact with non-conductive, high purity circulating coolant to keep them cool. And one of the reasons WHY, is that we can push our GaAs CPUs to clock speeds from 60 GHz (575 TeraFLOPS) up to 2 THz (Two TeraHertz at 19.2 PetaFLOPS!) of 128-bits wide processing power! You CANNOT EVER MATCH that sort of performance level with CMOS-based chips! . Unfortunately, in order to get CLEAN/SHARP/SMOOTH TRACE LINES, you need an electron beam etcher (less than 10 nm) to ensure CLEAN edges and cleanly shaped valleys/cells because of the "brittleness" of GaAs. That takes time to do (21 days per chip currently!) BUT you can make up for it by using THOUSANDS of e-Beam etchers manufacturing the same chip design in parallel. And some of our newer model etchers can do 16 chips at a time since they use multiple beams in parallel using much faster 2D-XY vectoring to bring 21 days per chip etch down to less than 2 days per chip! We're still ironing out some "issues" with that 16-chip etcher though! . On the plus side, we're aiming for fully automated manufacturing and automated Quality Assurance up to 10,000 chips every two days. . P.S. It will be $8888 CANADIAN RETAIL PRICE for the 60 GHz (575 TeraFLOPs version) of our GaAs Super-Server chip! .

How do you figure you were ripped off? You got what you ordered. You just were not able to get it to work perfectly. Only if they promised it would work with certain specs, such as more than just 82% or 84%, could you say you were ripped off.

Tells story about super optimized cpus for single core performance. Doesn't do single core test.

So, with nothing new or exciting to try on intels, we took the time machine and try something old for a change?, oke aside is good to test all this myths, I mean someone has to do it right?. But really for that amount of money remember you have brand new Ryzen 5, with 6 cores and 12 threads.

shoulda used the ac chiller on it

i didn't understood. is it a real "black ops" cpu or not ? how did he got scammed ?

@ 4:36, Linus pro tip for the day... use a key in place of a case switch. Nice!!

.... I'll trade you my Rampage IV Black for the good x79 you got there... you pay the shipping both ways tho. It has 35,000 gaming hours with a 4930k and 32gb on it.

Boot linux on it, it might load the correct microcode for this cpu and solve your utilization bug. It's a long shot, but might work.

It would be cool to try and ln2 cool this thing, see how far you can push it.
Do you get free dlc with that processor? Or is it loot box based?

6:30 My i7 870 (1st gen I think) idles at about 60°C and throttles at about 75°. Option 1: Gaming with a jet engine like computer. Option 2: Not gaming at all.

Clearly the ~80% usage was because Cinebench was bottlenecking the CPU. Time to upgrade to R20, Linus.

Block ops 4 cpu, where the modern warfare 4 cpu?
