Actually, No sir, no it did not. I don't use Ryzen Master, as it's garbage (IMO). Here's what I use: https://www.grainger.com/product/20E890?cm_mmc=PPC:+Google+PLA&s_kwcid=AL!2966!3!166587239686!!!g!82166490957!&ef_id=WdTObwAAAGhYtSAP:20171115192233:s&kwid=productads-adid^166587239686-device^c-plaid^82166490957-sku^20E890-adType^PLA
Got anything else you'd like to add? Some might say 'silicon lottery' but you'd have to lose that lottery pretty badly to get such badly results. Really badly, actually.
No it did not... what?
I was explaining where the figures we provide came from, and that we are not 'lying bastards.'
The Wattage figures we show (and the ones we show in all of our testing) are for peak platform power. The total AM4 testing platform, supplied by AMD for the purposes of the 1800X review, ran to a maximum of 204W drawn from the wall. They're captured in the same way for all our platform power testing and are used to show the difference between different systems.
And the thermal figures we show came from the original Ryzen Master Utility (again supplied by AMD).
There's no bias, no blatant lies, and no corporate shilling. Why would there be? What would be the point?
The other explanation could be that we use platform power draw to measure that side of things. And the thermal information came from AMD's Ryzen Master utility.
Thanks for reading.
