    I want a Nintendo Switch, an RX 480, and now one of these. Too much money... FX 8320 is working fine I guess

    the rx500 series should be coming out 3rd or 4th quarter of this year, with double the TFLOPs of the rx 480, apparently. or 4x the FP16 tflops? You know AMD and their tendency to oversell their products. Dunno, might be worth the wait

    It's been so many years since AMD was in the game I don't remember what it was like when they were neck-and-neck.

    Why would you need to "switch"? I understand the need for a new motherboard due to AMD and Intel architectural differences, but as a consumer the only thing you need to worry about is power and price. Don't play the little kid brand wars game. Be a smart, adult consumer.

    I have no idea about competition between these two giants, so mind you explain it to me?

    Well, AMD was the leader uptil 2008-ish and then Intel came up with the Core iX lineups and kicked AMD's ass for 9 years almost. Uptil now.
    Then there's also this- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Micro_Devices,_Inc._v._Intel_Corp.
    As you see, Intel's not ideal competition.

    R7 1800X > i7 6900K
    But wait 10 days for official benchmarks by 3rd parties, obviously.

    Are any of the available boards reasonably well featured basically server boards without the warranty and ECC support (hardly a dealbreaker but dual network ports and things like that) or are they stripped down toys like the earlier DDR4 boards? New stuff is fun but so often in recent years have I seen boards I would not have given a second look be touted as the tip top gear out there.

    As others said spend enough time wandering through IT and you will have a disdain for every vendor and manufacturer, however something still has to get done so a price*-performance-extent of dicking around tradeoff gets to be made. I am curious to see if AMD are once again to be a viable option for some things.

    *given I am writing this on a core2 laptop with 2 gigs of RAM, and that is my main machine, I am probably going to be mainly concerned with price and whether I can tolerate the rest.

    I have been waiting it for so long only to find it has 24 lanes instead of 36.

    If only we had a graphics card powerful enough to exploit all the bandwidth x16 mode provides :(

    Nope.

    AM4 is a consumer/mainstream platform, so all of them just have basically what is expected of a modern board aimed at that sector (m2, usb 3.1 etc).

    This is a big thing for me as well. Running that same CPU and it handles everything rather well. Wondering if at this point there's going to be a difference among any new gen.
