You know how hype trains work. You can't pretend there weren't people expecting more returning their CPUs on day 1. It IS a great CPU. It was NOT everything the hype promised, nor could it ever have been.
You can't pretend that there was a significant number of ppl who returned their product for whatever reason, which happens in every product, but you can pretend it.
I guess promising 40% ipc over bd and delivering 50%+ or benching it against a 6900k and beating it before release and after release, also delivering a more power efficient chip in a less mature 14nm node is NOT delivering by the "hype". All that with the price of 6900 cut in half? What did you expect a spacestation or a z13 chip?
Trolls at wccftech are smarter than you... Well some are pretty dumb but make more accurate points than you.
