    AMD are back in the game, if they're bold enough to officially say that their chips are faster, they must really be.

    About time there was some competition in the market. Intel's been pretty laid back the last few years. Hopefully this'll spark a war between AMD and Intel for better performing processors.

    About time we have some competition. x86/x64 has been stagnant for way too long

    Big news for PC gaming.
    This should shake things up a bit, more competition is always better for us customers.

    I wonder what Intel's gonna do. We do know that they plan on releasing a 7640k and 7740k sku, but that won't mean anything (just a 100mhz increment). I can't imagine Intel dropping prices on the 7600k or 7700k. Maybe they'll decrease like 50 usd on the 6900K, but that's it.

    Hate to say it, but Intel is holding back until ryzen is released. They'll release their new cpu that will crush ryzen. That's how it has always been.

    On the contrary, 8th gen Intel's will still be made on the 14nm platform and the claimed 15% performance increase. (Same as what they claimed between Haswell -->Skylake -->Kaby Lake but we know how that turned out)

    Intel's check-mated on this one. They simply haven't put anything in their x86 R&D in the past few years.

    People have short memories. Intel holding back just to crush AMD, that's how it's always been :rofl2:. So because AMD had a mistep with bulldozer and it's derivatives & had to ride it out, we forget everything else. Intel haven't always been on top. Intel only really climbed back on top with the core2 line. It was all AMD for years before that. Athlon xp, athlon 64, athlon 64 fx, all better than Intels offerings at the time. There's even an argument to be made that the old k6 processors were a better buy than the Intel equivlent.

    Can't forget the trainwreck that was rdram or Intel being so on top at one point, they paid off oem manafacturers to only use Intel :rofl2:

    Seriously, AMD make one mistep and history is apparently rewritten.

    Looking at Intel and their false promises of performance growth in the Core (6th & 7th gen) line you can see Intel is holding back for the 8th gen. When Intel releases a better CPU AMD will drop the price of Ryzen and that's when I'll buy one. Those 8 core 16 thread processors for that price looks mighty delicious.

    I was one of the early adopters (victims) of RAMBUS back in 2001.
    I can still feel the burn.

    Good for AMD I suppose, I've had too many bad experiences with their CPUs and GPUs in the past, I don't know if this will sway me away from Intel, heh.

    When you are old enough, sure you will have been fucked by Intel and AMD in different occasions.
    It's like they take turns to gangbang you.
    Like I said, I still feel the burn of my Intel P4 1.5GHz and its 256MB max RAMBUS (because price).
    And the burn was real, those memory modules could probably melt steel.
    Fucking useless PoS.
