    I feel like this has become worse lately, especially in entertainment and related fields.

    yee, well on the other hand laptop cpu is doing the reverse. charging premium for mobile bga while giving garbage.

    anything that use marketing markup u know something is wrong. similar thing for seagate/wd for their external drives selling cheaper than bare drive, taking full use of the enclosure and its purposely designed firmware on usb 3 controller to limit the read/write speed of USB 3 in order to hide HDD performance defects. in a way its still better than intel, charge more with garbage, seagate/wd charge less with garbage.

    I was more referring to unrealistic consumer expectations about what quality they can expect at bare minimum price. (or no price). But you make a good point there, they talk like the product is in a higher class than it is.

    VRM is fine. Non AVX on AIDA64 is below 165w.

    Cool, Thanks!, glad to hear it, please let us know how it OC's and what the power draw is as it ramps up in multi-core OC limits.

    Download the wprime from here! Scores are better with it and more comparable.
