So, apparently, Intel think their new CPUs will be ... wait for it ... 97% faster than their sixth-gen chips in certain cases. Here’s the direct quote: “On average, Intel claims the chips will be about 10 percent faster than last year’s 8th-gen desktop CPUs and about 40 percent faster than a 3-year-old PC with a 6th-gen CPU. The exception is for video editing in Adobe Premiere, where Intel claims the 9th-Gen will be 34 percent faster than an 8th-Gen CPU and 97 percent faster than a 6th-Gen CPU. This, Intel claims, is primarily due to how Adobe Premiere utilizes the higher clock speeds of the CPUs.” You have got to be ?!@$ing kidding me. Seriously?! Ninety-seven perfect faster than a Skylake chip?? Bruuuuuuh. Furthermore, they’re 40% faster than a Skylake chip on average. Huh? Which is it, 40 or 97? Either way, we all know that none of those claims are true. It will only be significantly faster in multithreaded workloads thanks to the extra cores and threads. Poor marketing is poor. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. How’s that 14nm++ working for you, Intel? Apparently...not so well.
