I've always bought Intel, but I'm really annoyed with them lately. I feel like we're not seeing much improvement from them because they have no reason to improve, and thus we're getting these minuscule 0%-5% performance improvements with each new release... I wouldn't be surprised if Intel is suddenly able to improve 25% after Zen is released.

That's what happens when the competition drops the ball gents. We're just lucky Intel decided to keep their Mainstream chips at a relatively decent price compared to the Enthusiast side.

The only thing, and I mean ONLY thing that will turn me off of Ryzen is if AMD gets rid of ECC RAM support on consumer grade chips...

Considering they are catering with a PRO moniker I would assume those are meant for workstation use and therefore might still have ECC support.

I can only hope so, only reason I still support AMD is because AMD has been rather good about having such niche features. Made my server build about $300 cheaper than what it would have been if I had gone Intel.

Intel has readied up 2 new chips for the Ryzen released, one of which being an unlocked i5 with HT. One is safe to assume Ryzen will be very competitive performance wise.

Default Re: AMD Ryzen

looking at the size of this thread-- maybe the pc market really is dead- too little to late for AMD---

but then I saw this

some humor in that- but it is really dry!
