1 "AMD's new 7nm chips don't overclock very well, and likely never will."
I keep hearing that AMD's chips (and Intel and nVidia to a lesser extent, but everyone else as well) are released pretty much right at the elbow of the curve where to gain more performance, power usage goes through the roof.  I also keep hearing that 14nm and smaller nodes are low-power-optimized processes.  I will admit I know next to nothing about this but it seems like one of the foundries should be coming out with a process that is optimized for higher power.  (Maybe it's not possible at this size but I haven't actually seen anyone say it's not.)

2 A few years ago, someone on The Daily WTF wrote a chatbot in node, specifically because node is cancer.
I looked at that isBuffer package.  I barely know node and my JS knowledge is way out of date but it looks like the isBuffer function will be fooled by any object that has a method called isBuffer.  (I don't know why you would have a legit reason to do that OTTOMH.)

3 Re: overclock capability.  The fact that you can't do it is a bit disappointing but the fact that AMD's giving you the entire capacity of the chip is pretty nice.

Unless you got a dud sample that can't reach the rated boost clock, like I did.  (Or hits 90C on a Prime95 Small FFT...with a 360MM radiator.  Ugh.)

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
