Anonymous, 30 May 2017Agree, Intel for newby only. Gamers, IT, engineers use AMDLol, made me laugh, it is opposite, everybody knows Intel is the best by far :)

I don't remember correct but I think it was a one time license fee that thy paid.

This is not in response to Ryzen, these are more enthusiast class processors. I'm pretty sure Intel can and will compete with Ryzen with their 8th gen chips. Highly unlikely they've been twiddling their thumbs while AMD was playing catch up.
good work AMD, without you we have still just 2 Intel cores for 1000 USD...
Intel is now unsaleable in mainstream, Intel= lower performance + higher consumption
AnonD-209261, 30 May 2017https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.phpThat's an useless site because it does not list the single core (single thread) performance.
Is THIS the response to Ryzen? lmao, I know Intel has been disappointing for so many years now, but this is well below my expectations.
AnonD-523334, 30 May 2017So the ryzen hardwork gonna in vain. Ryzen wins because of it's value.
And as far as the performance is concerned,we will have to wait and see if AMDs threadripper CPUs perform better!

It's the reason why they even licensed AMD x86 in the first place. So that in case Intel falls apart, there would still be a source for revenue. But I think AMD won't fall apart on it's own since Intel is paying them license fees for the x86-64 architecture. They are having a symbiotic relationahip.
AnonD-244086, 30 May 2017i7 extreme already existsMost of the people here probably already know that.
What he meant is that they should just keep the i7 and i7 Extreme names instead of i9 and i9 Extreme.
aigarslv, 30 May 2017AMD will lose this one, they might be going for investors and share prices but in the market -... moreAMD hasn't launched their server platform yet. They still need to infiltrate the server market, where revenue is greatest. I'm sure they can win it over with lower core/cost.

Ah....and yes, they have "Bitten by Ryzen" written on the box. LOL, I love AMD because they always keep processor prices in check. Imagine how much we would pay for our next laptop or a new processor for our desktop if (God forbid) AMD goes out of business. Intel would sell us even junk at the cost of an arm and a leg. Although, luckily Ryzen is a whole new level of performance but, I have purchased AMDs even in their bad days when possible(casual workloads), just because I wanted them to endure and eventually come up with something competitive. Things look good now, especially when AMD seems to have a definite future plan and is in a better position than it was in the recent past. I wish everyone could get what I am trying to say instead of raving about who's the fastest. No body needs an outright bulldozer of a PC apart from may be a few critical applications. We can all do just fine with a Ryzen or an Intel with just a few frames or seconds here and there even in the most demanding applications. Ultimately its comes down to how much we have to shell out of our wallets and I think with AMD everyone gets the benefit.
