A new CPU family known as the AMD Ryzen was released earlier this year. These are basically CPU’s with very powerful integrated graphics built in. The current variants run at 65w; however it was announced that 35w versions would be released later. Many speculate they (35w) will only be for the OEM market.
That said one comment that keeps popping up is how these 35w versions are really 65w CPU’s that failed some sort of QA test. Is there any truth to this? From my point of view either a CPU functions or it doesn’t. I was led to believe AMD had purposely done something internally to restrict to 35w.
Any CPU manufacturing experts care to chime in?
