"[AMD has] inconsistent performance from 4 glued-together desktop die." - Intel marketing dept.
...and they were right. Naples provided inconsistent performance due to the was the memory subsystem was broken down in 4 chiplets. Due to NUMA, whenever one chiplet needs to access the non-local memory (located in other chiplet) via infinity fabric, the performance tanked and it also came with latency penalty. 2nd gen Rome significantly improved (but not fully resolved) this issue with better memory architecture and larger cache. Finally, "glue" is actually a technical term which was previously used by AMD marketing department to deride Intel's old dual core CPUs.
