I swear the folks over at r/AMD(other forums) are so daft that they mostly do little more than mostly post English words but can never make any sense. They can not even appear to agree on any simple technology terminology regarding Zen(The CPU microarchitecture) and Ryzen(The Consumer brand name for a line of processors based on the Zen CPU microarchitecture). They could not tell the difference between the CPU's core functionality and that same CPU/Processor's non core/non microarchitectural functionality. Intel has a term called “Uncore” but AMD's technology has no proper terminology for its "Uncore" but AMD does have similar non-core functionality that is not tied to/fully dependent on the CPU's microarchitecture/ISA!

These r/AMD folks spend more time trying to figure out what the other folks really are intending to say or are trying to say than actually communicating. So for a lack of a common AMD CPU/Processor nomenclature that everyone knows and is common knowledge nothing can be simple even when simple attempts at asking questions can be asked and easily answered if folks understood even the basic AMD and a little Standard Computer Terminology.

The total amount of easily accessible online knowledge is shrinking even though the amount of internet data produced is doubling at an increasing rate. The actual amount of content that is even using the proper technological terms and related information is being buried under such a vast amount of total unintelligible drivel! It’s getting so bad that Google’s search results(So skewed as they already are by prioritizing marketing based search results) are being buried in an avalanche of references to these r/AMD and other Riddit like forum search hits that the proper technical material has become so overwhelmed in the search engine results by this non productive “content” as to cause the proper content to become but just some background noise compared to the total mass of drivel. The English Language itself is regressing as more folks visit these r/whatever Riddit like sites and become accustomed to the VERY non standard English that appears to be spoken there as it goes way beyond what may be considered even non standard spoken/written colloquial English.

It’s almost as if Google needs to have a separate Search engine that is more of use that omits these sites for the sake of better research hits where the sites that do appear are held to a proper standard before it’s too late and any sorts of proper information is drowned out by the babble of the many that uses English but makes no real cogent sense to the English speaker with even some average knowledge of computers.

It’s so bad the with Grammar and Usage even below the non standard colloquial English level that only more confusion can result because some people can not even make the simplest of sense at r/AMD, r/Nvidia and other such sites/sub-sites. It’s to the point at r/whatever that the linguists and the anthropologists and social sciences, and other folks need to assess the damage done and the social ramifications of some of these “content” producing sites.

This is a bit more scary than even Net Neutrality this is the overall online degradation of the Technology discourse as the entire internet gets diluted up to the point where the real factual Technology/Any Other discourse is buried under a Galaxy size load of almost total drivel. It’s both amazing and scary to watch as the internet gets buried by such total unmanaged drivel but the point of diminishing search engine returns appears to be at a tipping point and if there is no way to filter out the drivel then the actual factual content will become inaccessible.
