??? That's all they have been talking about since Bulldozer flopped. Mention of IPC is in all of their material and it's mentioned in the video. Hell we have people here who have tested using BD. Those scores ain't even close.I'm a systems engineer... (and a "gamer") even I want them to win.
My eyes are crossing all over the place. Used to be that we'd see a product announcement from companies that were more or less accurate. Why didn't they talk about instructions per clock cycle on a per core basis? Why don't we know that? Why don't companies talk about it?
Processor performance used to be easier to gauge. I'm not saying MIPS per core is a gold standard. At least it's concise.... But everything is marketing smear now.
All they had to say was "Ryzen does X instructions per clock" and 40% of this thread simply vanishes...
