    Oh, i get it, Intel is toothpaste factory because they used to use paste TIM instead of soldering and AMD had a whole family of micro-architectures named after groundwork heavy machinery

    I liked the surface of the sun temp on the power density graph also.

    I seem to recall that Alexander the Great made an edict outlawing ironic humor in his administration/rule.
    With many languages and cultures, the translation might be lost...something said in jest taken seriously.

    I wish today's politicians would take a similar tact.
    But then they wouldn't have the fall back of retracting a statement "Didn't you understand, I was just joking...I meant to say the exact opposite"

    Yes, I wrote this article. It took about 2 years.

    From a technical point of view, there are few places suitable for discussing this issue, because there are technical thresholds, but it is more appropriate here.

    There are some Chinese-style jokes in the article. For example, "toothpaste factory" means Intel, "agricultural enterprise" means AMD, and "nuclear bomb factory" means NVIDIA.

    On the one hand, these words are Chinese-style jokes, and on the other hand, they help me avoid the legal affairs of these companies. After all, writing about these technical negatives is not what these companies want to see.

    Toothpaste factory is the CPU giant who kept its improvement in really small steps every year (from i7-2600K to i7-7700K) in the past decade, just like you squeeze toothpaste from the tube everyday.
    Farmer enterprise is the chip company which has the technology to succeed but always failed to sell its products at a good price.
    Nuclear bomb factory is the GPU company who's kept releasing mammoth video cards like nuclear weapon GTX690, RTX2080Ti, etc.

    About the nuclear bomb video card joke:

    There was a saying that NV GPU is huge and power hungry and that it might explode in your case. Some GTX590 did burn their DrMOS because power consumption was huge. Then we had the GTX690 which was the combination of two big GK104 GPUs. Since the number was bigger, so was the explosion right? Someone started to call GTX690 a "tactical nuclear video card", and even made a "tactical nuclear video card" entry on a Chinese online encyclopedia. In 2013, when a military column tried to introduce some powerful weapons against aircraft carriers, obviously someone in the column was fooled by that entry, and copied these nonsense claiming that "one shot of tactical nuclear video card GTX690 can eliminate an entire carrier combat group".

    I saw someone's SeaSonic FX-750 tripping with 10700K OC+3080 OCCT PSU test,
    but FCP tested GX-750 and it was ok.

    What could be the reason? PSU defect... or FX OPP profile more sensitive than GX?
    can you test it?

    It could be Focus plus's OPP being more sensitive than the later Focus GX revision. It could also be the performance variation from one unit to another in the same model, since 750W is pretty much on the edge of tripping when FCP's test can squeeze out 1050W spike from the PSU. It could also be that 10700K OCed consuming more than FCP's 9900K OCed, or the motherboard VRM being less efficient.
