    Damn... Intel is straight up embarrasing themselves at this point. This is coming from somebody who has built all of their gaming rigs with intel cpus. My next build is definitely going to be AMD. Either the 3900x or the 3950x. I'm interested to see how the 3950x performs, but if I had to make a bet it is going to be a very good cpu.

    Lol, the fanboying is toxic. Use what you want to use for whatever reason you see fit. But that doesn't mean people that don't agree are wrong. Intel are assholes, but for what I need from a product, they make a better product, so I go with Intel. If people want something else from their rig or just don't want to support Intel, or are more about a diverse workload, whatever the reason, go with AMD. Or Intel! The best product for what you need from it may cut 10% off of your work. If you can now get 44 hours worth of stuff done in 40 hours, that's good right? That in the end is what I care about at least, what has me getting most done per hour. So far it's Intel. And since they also work better on games, when it's time to relax I see no reason to not still be on Intel.
    Who knows what the situation is in 2 generations though. I'm curious about the 4800X vs the 11900K situation you know.

    This is a product of the fact that way too many people get excited about 5fps increase for 100 euros difference on some of these type of products...
    The companies know they have no reason to release their best tech for cheap when they can just make throwaway tech and sell it at a very high price and they will keep doing this unless they either get a really good CEO that knows how to optimize performance-expenses-and-gains on their product OR people begin to use their brain and realize they are getting hard scammed with many many of these type of products, just like nvidia is doing with the rtx 2080 LOL

    I just upgraded my PC to a i9 9900k, but after watching the pre launch fan boy hype from many youtubers and the low real world actual increase coupled with the massive price increase i have decided to never buy another intel chip and i have never used anything else. I'm kinda sick of the baby step increases Intel jog out, and the PR hype that usually wow's up theses shit little increases in performance. After seeing AMD's 2700x at almost half the price and not that far behind performance wise i'm finally pissed off with playing it safe and going with what i know. I buy regular as i recycle my used PC parts to my children and grand kids as they need them meaning we all benefit, but my next purchase will most def not be Intel. It may be a year or 2 down the line after this major upgrade but it's the last Intel get out of me for a long time i suspect.

    I always told my kids, "Stay behind the cutting edge of technology. Let others with money to throw away, be beta testers and exploited by manufacturers. You can pick up those things a year or two later for 40% to 60% off what they paid. Spend the money you save on faster proven memory, more memory, more storage and develop some hobby that includes the outdoors like Kayaking, Archery or Photography. There are always new things to buy, but sometimes they are not so new after all."

    Intel needs to really go back to the drawing board. I'm talking all the way back; mechanical computers instead of electronic. Or even hydraulic computers. Or a hydro-mechanical computer. That would be cool.
