You seem agitated that I called AMDs blatant lie out. Why? Are you AMDs guard dog? I feel sorry for you if you genuinely believe AMD would withhold a product from the market because of availability of DDR5 that they don’t control. Withholding their product will not help anyone. If this is actually what they are claiming then it’s overwhelmingly obvious that they are facing delays on Zen4, most likely related to supply chain or capacity.
So you know, 100%, that AMD is blatantly lying? That's impressive. Good to know you're on the inside and can divulge information on AMD's product line. I hope you're not violating any kind of NDA - that would be bad . Next time a new product through AMD is coming out, we'll all turn to you and ask for your wealth of knowledge about AMD's position.
I'm not taking anyone's side. You're inferring that I am. I simply stated a few possible scenarios and it looks like you kind of took offense to them and jumped to the conclusion that I'm defending AMD.
You said people will pay a premium for new hardware. I pointed out that the new hardware isn't easy to come by and paying a premium isn't the same as paying scalper prices. I even pointed out that a guy designed something to allow DDR4 to work on DDR5 only motherboards (here's a link to the TechSpot story if you want to look it over to make sure I'm not lying). I also said the Intel CPUs were not just being purchased to be used with DDR5 and that the performance difference between DDR5 and DDR4 isn't that impressive (you can check out the TPU results here if you want). If you want to resort to labeling me as a "guard dog" because a possible rebuttal to your opinion was put into question, by all means, do so, if that's what makes you feel better.
Remember, I never said you were wrong. I just offered other possible scenarios that you refuse to acknowledge, for whatever reasons you believe.
