    suppressing free speech is never the matter how 'dangerous' you think it is. Cause what you think will be dangerous and your voice is gone...

          I have a way of accelerating ordinary PCs up to 3000 times for general computational tasks such as Photoshop. ++385 35 481 341, mobile ++385-91-390-3479 (Tvrtko Rajcevic, Croatia, EU) I would like to sell my invention to Intel or whoever offers the most cash. The price is €1BN+30% of future profits or what is being offered at the table. 13.11.2019.

            hey don't worry about losing your phone on the plane. it was a LG G3 they weren't that good an they bricked themselves an if the phone was reset it will most likely be permanently lock by antivirus/anti theft software they had on them. 🤷🏼‍♂️ so no big deal.

                I really hope you dont totally phase yourself out. I prefer if you stayed. I really think you are what makes the channel worth watching. I've been watching since I was a kid. I'm 26 now it's great to see you still doing your thing. I do like your staff but you should always still be in videos.

                    Feels like there just using [email protected] and making profit. Which pushing the envelope and making any profit is better than no profit. I just see it as r&d.

                          It's really something (something good!) to take a look back at this video, now that you've got your hands on, and having tested, that 64-core monstrosity! And you were/are totally right, they (AMD) absolutely FCKING destroyed Intel.... by a factor of TWO!

                            Linus you should compare the 3990wx 64 core with the Epyc 64 core. Some us out here use our computers for work doing design, visualization and simulation.

                                Surpressing voices is ALWAYS dangerous. It doesn't matter that you don't like it. If you let authorities surpress voices arbitrarily you have absolutely no right to complain when someone surpresses you. Because guess what: Just like you think you are right and are making the world better with censorship, your opponent can use the same exact line of thinking. It's stupid.
                                This doesn't mean people being indoctrinated by youtube subcommunities isn't a problem. Censorship just isn't the way to solve it because it has never solved anything and never will. A better approach would maybe be training the algorithm to "break the bubble" so to speak and not only recommend videos from the same bubble but from different viewpoints too

                                          AMD: "Okay, heres a 32 core flagship that matches your chips IPC performance."
                                          Intel: "Shit uhhhh, well here! 28 cores!"

                                                  I don't get that logic. Why would AMD do all that only to get benchmarks that are 2x as fast as anything Intel has to offer only to give them the finger? I mean even if it's barely 2 as fast, in what world does that not add insane value? There are a lot of applications that can utilize the cores that will finish in 2 times the amount of time, while not having to pay at least triple the amount for an Epyc with similar CPU performance? Epyc sure has benefits over Threadripper in some applications but when having mostly just heavy CPU usage applications you're basically getting an equivalent value for better than 1/3th of the price.

Blatantly unfair. Thanks Youtube.

And ofc linus has stayed linus. youtube changes people.. thank god that it hasn't happened with linus (okey there were some times where linus seemed littlebit... weird, but it grew out).
                                                                    I don't follow almost any other youtube channel and I will probably not follow you guys as much as I do at the moment, if linus would not host anymore.

Maybe you are in the same conundrum YouTube is in when they stopped reporting new unique users. You are in a niche and considering language barrier it is even smaller. You are getting annually more viewers and viewership than the Super Bowl. The question you need to ask is if nothing changes could you do this for the rest of you life and be happy?

I enjoy both Linus & other hosts. Seems like new hosts start out a bit awkward but get better with practice. I watch LMG for the quality of explanations, experiments, subjects I'm interested in, & entertainment.

                                                                                          Threadripper is a Halo product. Halo products aren't supposed to be sold in mass amounts. But for an enthusiast that wants to build the most insane rig out there, telling him to stick with AM4 doesn't fly, just like Intel and their 28-core attempt at joining the market. You seemed insulted when Intel didn't send you a test rig for it, yet you say it has no purpose? It's a showcase product like the Ford GT. Chevy or Dodge, or most non-exotic car makers don't have anything that can touch it, but they still made it, and immediately sold out of it even at half a million bucks starting price... It's not meant to sell a bunch, it's overpowered, and overpriced, but some people still want it.

                                                                                          Ultimately, it looks good for the company and the brand to have that niche market locked down. If threadripper was meant to only be a workstation CPU, why are the boards so flashy? Why not just have them on Supermicro green PCB type server boards? Because above all else, they're a showcase product, and can't be replaced by Epyc, no matter how similar they are. Not continuing the Threadripper line would be a disappointment not only for people who want to buy it, but people who love to see builds and benchmarks using it. I don't get as excited for server products. Maybe it's the lack of RGB... who knows...

                                                                                          As for 64 cores, why not? If people are willing to pay it. Maybe start off with 48 cores for the this generation threadripper, that could keep heat to a minimum by not having 2 of the chiplets. That way it still isn't quite Epyc, can probably be overclocked, and gives the enthusiasts and the pro-sumer something new to tinker with.

                                                                                            I'm not a "hater", but I imagine that the thing people have a bigger problem that with you using a comp'd video card in a build is just how big your channel has grown, where you don't seem to be able to say anything negative about anyone (so you're not keeping it "real")

                                                                                            As an example, someone pointed out in a recent video (some time in the last couple of days) that you were doing an Origin PC ad spot despite having rated them lowly in a side-by-side comparison a few months back. I haven't verified this by going back to the video in question, but the perception is out there that you've "sold out" to some extent.

                                                                                            I think the best way to address this is to do what you've been doing with having other hosts and other segments dedicated to more in-depth, critical reviews, and keeping yourself as the "face" of the company in order to maintain the business relationships you've built (so run your Origin PC ads, but let Anthony or whomever do the breakdowns as to whether the Origin PC is "worth it").
