That box looks pretty sturdy, though. Additionally, a processor is nowhere as heavy or bulky as those things so they can at least afford the extra flair in the packaging. On the other hand I wouldn't dare dropping an Intel box, especially not one of those with the window that almost leaves the chip outside.

I worked in package design. It's way more expensive. We did a cardboard box the size of a graphics card box with the same foam they use. It wasn't complicated. Just a few cut outs for some stuff. It cost close to 20$ per box. We made a few thousand of of them. Now the prices we got where about 30% more expensive than the really big companies. But we put their prices to around 20$ for each box. That's whit the advanced printing and the advanced cut outs.

This box for the new amd cpus is way more difficult to make. So I can say it costs more than 20$ to make even on a large scale.

The raw materials might be a couple of dollars worth of PVC and styrene beads but the cost of having the moulds machined would be easily in the tens of thousands per set and hundreds of thousands for the processing and assembly lines. Which is still chump change when it comes to a product that is sold globally, but they wont be making enough of these to bring the cost down to the levels you're thinking of.

It's wayy cheaper to make those shitty heatsinks than it is to make the packaging shown in the OP's pic; the intel heat sink is literally made as a long aluminum extrusion that's chopped into sections every couple of inches. The cost for the extrusion is probably something like $10 a foot and a foot will probably yield 6 heat sinks. Add a cheap fan and those pegs which have been in production forever and the grand total cost might be less than $10 per heat sink.

Apparently using a high end aio they OC'd the 2990x to 4.12ghz but it's early days.

>>66992358

The AMD cpu wins no matter what. even if the 7980x can oc to 4.5 and the 2990x is cooler, cheaper, the socket has more pcie lanes and more functions. its a nobrainer.

the 7980x only wins in games where IPC matters. but thats a stupid cpu for gaming as the 8700k or the 9700k is a way better value and performs better.

Eh, I use my Threadripper for workstation stuff and I appreciate the packaging and kept it. If I sell the processor at some point it'll go right back into its nice fancy box. And yeah, it's a workstation processor but people like to pretend it's for gaming. Just look at the branding for Threadripper motherboards.

I think it's pretty smart of AMD to go over the top with the packaging. They are treating Threadripper as a halo product. The numbers from a German retailer suggest that TR only makes up about 2% of Ryzen sales. People who have no use for 16+ cores will still oooh and ahhh and feel better about the brand as a whole. And obviously it's good press and hype for the launch. News articles, forums, 4changs and reddits talking about your product is good advertisement.
It also helps to reinforce negative feelings people might have about Intel's value proposition. It's like AMD is saying "Look, you know and we know that you're getting ripped off with that Skylake-X CPU. Look at how few fucks they give. Their equivalent processor costs twice as much and they can't even be bothered to give you a little bling for your 2 grand."
