sIntel hubris - still?? IMO, this sounds about right for sIntel. The e-cores (purely there just to play the core count game because P-cores, instead of E-cores, would turn their cpus into electric stoves) comes back to bite them in the E-A$$.
Maybe, just maybe, they will learn some day that the shell game scam is not working for them.
Except that those E cores are actually improving performance..... And we already see how powerful Alder Lake in multi-threading and massive upgrade over previous CPU, and same time it has best single-thread performance
Play core count ??? I'm pretty sure we decide how good the CPU based on benchmarks and actual performance, not based on core count...
DRM issue it not big problem as some people make it and it not intel fault
1- All future games will not have issue because developers will not make DRM that does not work on hybrid CPU
2- Many of current games will likely get patched (specially big titles like Assassin's Creed)
3- You can still use Temporary fix (disabling E cores) if you want to play these outdated games with DRM or use cracked version... After you finish playing the outdated game then you can enable the E cores again..... Most of the games in list are games that I never played and I will not play
4- Like or not, Hybrid cores are the future... ARM started it, intel have it now, and AMD in the future
