„Silicon Lottery“ parduotuvė, pardavinėjanti atrinktus AMD ir „Intel“ procesorius, užsidaro

„Silicon Lottery“ parduotuvė praneša liūdną žinią, jiems tenka užsidaryti. Ši parduotuvė siūlydavo atrinktus procesorius pagal jų gerumą. Kitaip sakant, buvo galima nedalyvauti silicio loterijoje ir už papildomą pinigų sumą nusipirkti geriausią procesorių. Teigiama, kad pagrindinė priežastis dėl ko tenka uždaryti parduotuvę yra tai, kad dabartiniai „K“ serijos procesoriai iš „Intel“ jau gamykloje yra suskirstomi pagal silicio gerumo ir toliau juos atrinkinėti beveik nėra prasmės. Kadangi „Silicon Lottery“ negali atrinkti geresnių procesorių, tai ir pirkėjų nepriviliosi. Antra priežastis yra daug kartų girdėtas lustų trūkumas. Parduotuvė per pandemiją tiesiog nesugebėjo užsitikrinti nuolatinio lusto tiekimo. Paskutine priežastis yra ta, kad „Intel“ pradėjo lituoti savo karščio dangtelius prie procesoriaus silicio. Seniau būdavo naudojama termo pasta, kurią pakeitus buvo pasiekiamos daug geresnės temperatūros. Būtent šią paslauga siūlė „Silicon Lottery“.


Our online store will be closing on October 31, 2021. Any orders placed for our delidding service will need to be delivered to us by November 30, 2021 for completion. For warranty or other assistance after we close the store, contact us at the email listed on your packing slip.

We have had a fantastic time these past seven years at Silicon Lottery. This business has grown and made an impact on so many people, more than I ever imagined was possible. I personally appreciate all of you that I’ve been able to talk with over these years, from troubleshooting to general questions to speculation. It’s been so easy to connect with so many of you through this hobby we share.

We’re shutting down not for just one reason, but for a combination of many. As you may be aware, overclocking headroom has been dwindling these past several years with manufacturers offering higher frequencies at stock, better boosting algorithms, and tighter bins between models which reduces overclock frequency variation (the 11900K is essentially a binned 11700K, so with the 11900K we’re binning what has already been fairly heavily binned). This type of product segmentation is nothing new, but having such minor differences between two models is a more recent shift. Intel has also switched from a polymer TIM back to a solder TIM starting with their 9th generation CPUs, which has reduced the thermal benefits achieved from delidding. In addition, supply issues have taken a major toll on us, even before the pandemic started. Our orders with distributors for the last few releases have been nightmares of delays upon delays.

With all of this in mind, sales have fallen below the point where it makes sense for us to keep the store open. We know many of you are eagerly wanting Alder Lake CPUs, and we’re sorry that we won’t be able to fulfill your needs this time. We have seen your emails rolling in these past couple of weeks, and we’re sorry for not getting back to you guys earlier as we’ve been busy juggling this decision.

While we will be closed for the foreseeable future, it’s not necessarily goodbye forever. If things change in the market, in particular if overclocking headroom and variation increases for whatever reason, it’s possible we will get things rolling again.

We wish all of you the best, and to keep having fun tweaking hardware!

    Dar ir čia galima pirkti „pratestuotus“ CPU:
