I like Intel but ….

New results from Principled Technologies (PT):


Core i9-9900K Vs Ryzen 7 2700X, + 12% in gaming against a price increase of 66%.
R7 2700x to 330 euros down and i9 9900k to 700 euros.
AMD made a pretty good in terms of technology and energy consumption.
Make the bad ad for AMD while their older processor rivals almost with the latest Intel processor is not reassuring!

I won't unsub, becuase LTT doe, for the vast majority of their content have some interesting and entertaining content, but their segment on PT and Intel does earn this video a thumbs down.

The level of mistrust i have for Linus Sebastian right now is at an all time high.

Hey, I've had 8 3.5" drives in one PC! Granted, it was a file server thingy, but still. 😀 That case had weird fitment issues too (at least with an Abit BP6 mobo), like installing memory basically couldn't be done while the mobo was installed and the lower drive bays were in use. And the side panels resonated. And the front panel was solid, like some 20 years newer cases I could mention, and drilling a fan-sized hole dropped drive temps by 10 degrees C. And upper rear drive bays were so far up you needed extra long cables. And the case wasn't deep enough that you actually had decent room if the front bays had optical drives in them. And since it was 20 years ago, it was beige! (Yes, beige, that creamy/tan-like color, not light grey.)

If we ignore it then it will only grow. We need to stop bad practices.

Drew Pickard - 6 months ago

I just want to point out its not always you need to do a full on rom, a different launcher can make a world of difference. I've been using Nova pro for a very long time. I always give a phone a shot stock but wind up going with Nova……until the Note 9. The stock launcher has not pissed me off yet. The Keyboard is just bad though, I'm surprised i havnt heard about that in your reviews. I know everybody with a Samsung I know complains about that key board

Damn it STOP SAYING HEY GOOGLE ON STREAMS. It just did all the stuff your complaining about on mine

Diego Gomez - 6 months ago

Hey about game mode, i found an actual case where it works quite good, on the lenovo yoga book (windows10) , on normal the game oxygen not included runs laggy as hell, but on game mode is actually not that bad :D, it runs smoother

Kobe Kabir - 6 months ago

Linus sucks Intel's lollies and he loves it… unsubscribed.

Drew Pickard - 6 months ago

I agree these Principle benchmarks are advertising not real reviews and should be ignored. BUT at this point I'm tired of this trash and I think others are. I mean we are hot off the heels of Nvidia 2080 launch and misleading benchmarks. Which was hot off the Intel 28 core 5ghz chiller fiasco. The real deal here is Intel and Nvidia pretty much own their markets and things like this they can get away with and do. If AMD tried to do something like this it would really hurt them bad. We all knew the 9900 was going to be faster than a 2700x intel/principle didnt need to "cheat""or fake ignorance to show that

Daniel Ladishew - 6 months ago

Are you guys ignorant about Hacksmith, because he already did the projector drive in theater thing…. just saying, your writers ~might be in trouble about calling that an "original" take on it.

tony bony - 6 months ago

No, sadly I'm gonna say Linus went from my favorite tech youtuber to one of the worst ones he's completely biased towards Intel and can't even accept that including that AMD is a good company and does make good chips that would make good competition for us so they would race to make better chips but nope lets just say that AMD is trash because I'm sponsored and I don't really care about the people that's why I lied about AMD VS INTEL, and if you guys know anything about CPU you know what I'm talking about if you saw that video and I was watching his videos for years and the past few months after all of this, Linus why would you do this for money <————— linus the only tech review company that doesn't care about tech if he did he would care about the improvements AMD made and competition.

huma474 - 6 months ago

The faulty testing was designed to allow Intel to game their stock price – the PT numbers were put out to encourage investments because they allow them to put out a notice with the message "We're 50% better than competition". Tech news choosing to not attempt to confirm or refute the data is to be complicit in intel's attempt to manipulate the main stream press

Linus Shill Tips

capitalG386 - 6 months ago

my standard practice for any cpu or gpu upgrade – is to wait at least 6 months to a year so people have time to get the bios on mobo's upto speed get used to the hardware and other such things and figure out how to work them right – then look at that information so that i know roughly what direction the wind is blowing with that product – if its simply left flapping in the wind i know its usually not worth my money time effort or aggravation – then i can look at other products that i was holding back on to see that specific data and see how they stand and make a sound decision.

Brian Z - 6 months ago

Okay who else finds Linus drinking from a giant metal bottle with ice every 30 seconds super annoying. I understand the need to stay hydrated but common Linus drink from a cup with without ice the sound drives me nuts. :-/

Nemesis1ism - 6 months ago

A lot of hate out there considering INTEL has the best gaming cpu on earth . With gaming mode on it does indeed make a difference. when AMD introduce AVX CLAIMING THERE AVX WAS BASICLY SAME AS INTELS. NOW we all know that was a lie yet you all sucked in

John Gault - 6 months ago

It wasn't cheating… clever marketing to abuse the trust of rubes that support their fantasies.

Let's be honest..99% of PC's are in the 90% CPU idle territory. Most people have grossly mismatched tools to needs, to feel successful, and blame the failures of judgement on someone else. So, what exactly is being created other than what was sacrificed to have?

goten259 - 6 months ago

Holy hell how do you care so little about this benchmark Bullshit. Test the two cooler see if there's a difference. Run the tests see the difference. Love your Intel Ads though.

Cosmic Revival - 6 months ago

unsubbed. not saying you're bought but you're certainly not objective anymore.

Riashad Foysal - 6 months ago

Waw, Linus, this was very much unexpected from you blatantly defending Intel over this issue. At least, be neutral if not a biased judgementalist or at least do proper research prior commenting on something that you did not completely understand.

CS - 6 months ago

ryzen xfr self-overclocks higher with a better cooler, it checks the temps. i get 4.0 to 4.1 xfr in a microatx case because i use an aio. but doesn't matter, the PT benchmarks got owned by gamers nexus and hardware unboxed.

tehgman2 - 6 months ago

Ugh PIA do not show $2 a month if I cant actually pay that way!
