    $50 more than a unlocked Ryzen 2600 6-core/12-thread gets you a locked i5-9400F 6-core/6-thread... that's hardly a better system?

    This :thumbup: Amd would be fine for me too. Stupid benchmarks like high mhz that Intel has + more cores for modern 3D.
    You need deep pockets for the $INTEL$

    no, AMD are doing in the CPU space exactly what they are doing in the GPU space - trying to hit perf/$ at every price point and undercutting Intel by just a pinch.

    At the same time they are not going after the top end. So if you have more $$$ than you know what to do with you will by the top end Intel offering - you are not in AMD's target market.

    They are offering an alternate solution, nothing more or less.

    IPC is going great too on the 8 core AMD's ... even a match I think vs Intel in benchmarks with the new Ryzen parts to be released winning. :thumbup:

    Although I'm not great on the x299 Dark yet :Paranoid: I have compared best scores like Cinebench vs mine with cores turned off.
    9940x running 8c 16t @ 4.5Ghz I was just not hitting what the Amd 8cores could hit. Experience I guess, ram tuning is tricky with that bios.
    Then perhaps more cpu frequency to get over the top.

    I did de lid it a long long long time ago using a vice

    it runs @5.2ghz with no avx offset in any workload / stress test as i can afford intel I buy intel

    I'm not listening to that numnut in the video so I'm gonna guess what the vid is about :D

    I guess AMD has always been known as a poor mans Intel, but I see it differently, it's always represented fantastic bang for buck and equivalence for a fraction of the cost. I've never ever been hesitant about going AMD.

    It is criminal how shitty the thermal interface under the lid is even on their enthusiast K chips. My 8700K under water still hits thermal throttle with some AVX workloads.

    The real question is; Are Fords for poor people?

    CJ, why didn't you buy a more expensive car than your glorified taxi?

    Save yourself the hassle, just move it to The Pub.

    What's your justification for living in the Gold Coast, across the road from a cemetery, and having a bathtub in your front yard? People find value in different things.

    For those that didn't watch the video...
    Both AMD and INTEL were almost exactly the same at all price points. Most of the differences <2% (linus says <5%), even overclocked.
    There is literally nothing in it at the low end mid range.

    AMD probably pulls a head if you use intergrated graphics, but at that point, your building buisness machines and gaming performance is pretty much irrelevant.

    what if i want 10 top-specced amd systems but you can only afford one intel system? does that make me more wealthier than you or em i still poorer for choosing AMD?

    Could you not afford to put 450kW down at all four wheels?
