"Regular" tomahawk pro has a beast (12 phase) VRM, tomahawk MAX has a 4 phase VRM. They are completely different boards.

edit: I made a mistake with "regular tomahawk" there is no such thing, I was thinking of MSI B450-A PRO series..

As for the link, performance isn't even tested. But thanks, I now know that CPUs work.

@HardReset: boards with less "stuff" usually come with less of "everything". Quality of VRMs is important even if you are not going to overclock.

"I say it is Intel's fault because Intel should specify them."

well obviously, but it is not so. (forgive me people, I have never gotten used to multi quotes. It's not me disrespecting anyone here :) I hope...)

If they don‘t run at the same speed / throttle they fail the test.

Here‘s another Techspot article comparing B350 to X570 using Ryzen 3600, 3700x and 3900x. It also shows performance data and the difference is marginal.


Note: This is comparing a 2017 mid range chipset to a 2019 high end chipset. Just to put this in perspective.

Now that Intel has real competition from AMD.. it has got to act more professional. This is not the time to ignore quality assurance for customers in any measure. Previously, we as consumers could calmly stomach this kind of treatment from Intel, but since it's nolonger in that, "favorable" spot, these are the kind of things it is supposed to rectify.
