[quotemsg=19361305,0,2427879]Complete non issue. I am sure you can come up with something better than that to put a touch of grey on the launch. Intel will be happy that you are following their guidance and taking their money.[/quotemsg]
It's clearly an issue... You are the worst kind of fanboy. If this were an Intel product, you'd be trashing it like it was the worst thing ever, and don't pretend you wouldn't. The media's job is to report what is going on and this happened, so I would be pissed if they DIDN'T report this.
and before you get all pissy and say I'm an intel fanboy or something, I have an 1800x pre-ordered and currently have an Intel i5 4690k that I got after returning an FX 6300(it was no better than my overclocked phenom...). I buy what best fits my needs(even though I don't really need an 1800x, but F it...)
