    It's funny that a forum all about internet marketing I never really see computer discussions. I'm just curious what team you're on, and why? I personally am AMD and very excited to see what is coming with the Zen architecture. *don't care about the vega gpus though* Let me know your opinion.

    I was excited about amd ryzen, but intel just put hyper-threading onto the Pentium processors so they can now be used for a starting build(depending on what you are doing).

    Ryzen is in a different class of CPU's than the Pentiums.

    But its going to be more expensive, you can game with the Pentium still and then upgrade to the i7 6950x eventually as earnings increase.

    AMD is where its at.
    However, intel does excel in graphical textures in resolutions from personal experience, if AMD can overcome that, then no stopping them.

    Sure. I'm just happy that there is going to be competition at the top.

    It will be interesting to see how much the i7 7700k and the i5 7600K get knocked down in price

    I really doubt they change price at all. And doubt they change Cannonlake price from being around the same this year too. Intel is pretty strict with pricing. And why wouldn't they be at 80% market share.
