    I don't really believe any of the insiders because i doubt anyone in the know is going to be stupid enough to break the NDAs.

    So I still rate the GitHub leak as the only substantial news we have gotten. At first I thought the 2ghz clock was insanity but MrFox seems to think it's doable and so yeah.

    Can't someone hack someones email because that's the only way we going to get a proper leak:D

    Not sure how he got access to some true information before the Pro reveal (maybe a very elaborate scam), but for next gen I personally consider OsirisBlack like a very smart fraud. He always has being repeating (after the fact) others more genuine leakers (current and retired non-anonymous journalists, yes it includes Klee) and basically followed that wave off info from the start with some vague and fluctuating information (basically he was right if either Xbox, PS5 or both are from 11 tf to 13 tf, and no matter which console happens to have the upper hand).

    The way he protects his resetera account is so obvious, and he still tries to muddy the waters in order to also protect his neogaf account if we get 12 / 8 specs instead of 11/12/13.

    Currently on NeoGaf I'd say there is possibly one true insider: HeisenbergFX4. Maybe.

    Didn't GitHub come from 4Chan though? Or was it reddit? And where did the Oberon is PS5 rumor come from? Reddit? Or was it 4Chan? And Arden? Reddit or 4Chan?

    github came from AMD. Oberon came from komachi and github. Arden from komachi then github.
    Komachi was aware of github for months before rogame made it more public. That's about when next gen leaks stopped.

    I don't think it's impossible, but that opinion is contingent on tsmc N7P being high enough volume at the right time, and also some improvement from rdna2 (rdna 1.5 or whatever). So it's still a long shot.

    1700MHz on N7 would be pretty much 1850MHz on N7P. So then you need either some yield sacrifice, and/or more cooling, and/or some rdna2 clock improvement for 2000MHz.

    Didn't you read the GitHub tests files come directly from AMD?

    Proelite hasn't been proven wrong though.

    They could simply say that their friends where wrong, or that the devkit wasnt in final form. That's the problem, they basically can never be wrong.

    That could explain the beefy cooling system applied.

    The people that I’ve seen I would believe have the information are very purposeful about not divulging it. I think people are appropriately spooked by ninjas.

    Well spent money if the solution is just a few dollars on cooling.

    I think he (Osiris) basically said/hinted there was a PS5 reveal in 2nd week of February. That's now been proven false as well.

    But again there are people who will excuse whatever as "it could have been true when he said it, plans change" etc.

    He wrote "fortnight" at the end of a reply about a game he allegedly saw demoed for him. The 1st reply was something along the lines "2 weeks? start of feb?". That was it.

    So do you think the xsx picture was an elaborate hoax then?
    Especially as they used a legit serial number, which any leaker would know to block out.
    Which adds to it being fake?

    Or are there just stupid people out there?
