If you are somehow unable to not damage pins on CPU/MOBO leave it to a shop or someone qualified to do it for you then (that goes for untalented people as well).

I really don't get all the moaning about bent pads/pins on LGA or PGA...I've removed/installed CPUs countless times without damaging any of it.
I managed to damage socket pins by just mounting Scythe Choten cooler too tightly. I never had any problems with AMDs before. You could probably smack them with hammer and they will be fine (as long as they are in socket). Intel just had inferior mounting system with LGA1200. Also if CPU pins were bent then fixing that is easy, but Intel's motherboard pins just straight up fell out. I don't wan to see any other LGA socket in my life.

He (or she) was (half) right on one (minor) point: AMD ripped off BMW's naming scheme only after they saw Intel doing the same.

Harassing a moderator? Jese, that's a rather dumb thing to do.

He came off as a conspiracy nut, with some long winded stories about how AMD are only good because they poached one intel employee, who then left back for intel - none of which is actually relevant to the products for purchase, it's only backstory.

AMD have rarely had the performance lead (but it has happend a few times), but they're always aiming to be the first and most creative when it comes to tech. x86-64, first to 1GHz, first IMC...
Not all their tech ideas work out, but holy shit they innovate and always have

Yeah, unlike that other company that was taking a five-year-long snooze and only woke up because AMD came along and lit a fire under their collective asses.

Don't forget Infinity Fabric and chiplet CPU/GPU design!
I can just imagine some engineer at AMD going "Hey, what if we chopped up the CPU die into smaller pieces?

And yeah, Intel basically pulled a Tortoise and the Hare. Outsprinted AMD early, then went to take a nap for 7 years and AMD passed them.

What I really hope for is a CPU retention mechanism similar to Intel that won't allow the CPU to come off the socket still glued to the heatsink, give me that and I'll be happy. That only happened to me once after using crappy paste, but I've seen it happen to others.

If AMD are going LGA for mainstream desktop CPU's I'll be down with that if they use an installation style like that of Threadripper
That would be the best socket to date, i did drop my 6700k in the socket once lucky for me it was 1 or 2 pins fixed them with a needle, that will sure ease the removal and install.

Haveing gen 4 drives my self - I do find it doubtfull that 14.000MB/sek transfer rate desktop parts is high demand any time soon - 4tb drives to a affordable price though

Sustained speed is pretty much useless, small write/reads are whats important

In real world usage my WD SN850 performs idential on my Intel (signature rig) and my AMD rig which is B550 + 5600X, 6700XT

So PCIe 5.0 is going to be pretty pointless for consumer market, PCIe 4.0 x16 does not even improve GPU performance compared to 3.0 x16

PCI-E 5.0 is gunna be like 4.0, its biggest advantage is on devices using 1x slots

a 5.0 1x USB 4.0 controller is gunna work a lot better than on 1x 3.0

Oh crap.
Now there will be people who go "AMD TO INTEL SOCKET ADAPTER?!?!?!" more frequently.
Also, AMD, please make your socket pins more durable.
:roll::roll::roll:
lol, am I one here who hadn't any damn single issue with LGA socket pins?...:oops:
