TDP did matter a lot when certain people believed the marketing "95W" was real. I recall correcting then the wrong claims made by chiparchitect, when he took that 95W marketing to pretend that RyZen was more efficient than 140W Broadwell-E.
No one praised RyZen for being more efficient than "its competitor", because it is not more efficient. The 7900x is more efficient than the 1800X and ties with the 1700X, contrary to your claims,
When Ryzen launched the 7900 and 8xxx series didn't exist.
That's where I'm going with this.
P.s. what the fuck is that graph lol come on man.
You're going to complain about bias and then compare an HEDT part to a consumer part?
You're the pot calling the kettle black here.
It was/is for a while the closest comparison as Intel doesn't believe in 8 cores and they are often used in similar workloads. 8 core vs 10 core. People looking at Ryzen for HEDT/workstation also considered the 7900x.
