The old conspiracy rumour mill is moving up a gear. Latest is that review sites are getting lots of hints and suggestions on how to bench Ryzen.
"Cinebench may be seen as a non-representative benchmark for some but SemiAccurate is confident that Ryzen’s performance will hold up across a wide range of benchmarks. This last bit may explain why Intel PR sent out a last-minute “call us before you write” email to most of the press, but not SemiAccurate, after hours last night. You could infer that they are suddenly really worried about something. In case we read that wrong, they should be."
Can anyone from [H] confirm that they're hearing the same thing ...or have even had such suggestions made directly?
Wait, so now Cinebench has become an unrepresentative benchmark? when did this happen, somewhere between "new horizons" and the 22/2 NDA lift?
Cinebench is about as representative as it gets, and it is very representative of AMD being very good.
