Yup.And wasn't AMD just being bashed for degradation concerns?
You have totally misunderstood this Intel PCN. The current B-1 stepping parts are N3350, N4200, J3355 and J3455. The new F-1 stepping parts will add an "E". Your article is totally wrong.Intel refreshes Celeron and Pentium Apollo Lake processors due to degradation concerns.

And wasn't Intel just bashing AMD with degradation concerns?
But this is totally different. Intel alluded without proof that Ryzen will have a shortened life where Intel CPU's have a shortened life that is costing them money! So totally not the same thing. Nothing hypocritical at all.
I wonder how much they're grumbling at the irony.And wasn't Intel just bashing AMD with degradation concerns?
Anybody that could maybe explain what these are :Intel identified an issue with the Low Pin Count (LPC), Real Time Clock (RTC), SD Card interfaces on Intel Celeron N3350, J3355, J3455 processors and Intel Pentium N4200 processor resulting in degradation of these signals at a rate higher than Intel's quality goals after multiple years in service.
Agreed.This can't have been a surprise internally. What lunatic decided to use an unconfirmed source to bash AMD with the possibility of slightly shortened lifespan, when their own stuff (admittedly the cheap, low end stuff) was something they'd (presumably before today) realized was likely to fail within warranty?
