AMD Ryzen thoughts

Has AMD finally launched a CPU that can compete with Intel’s dominant position is obtained by creating the reliable solid i5 and i7 CPU’s – Did they finally catch up?

With AMD’s launch of AMD Ryzen, which seems to be marketed towards a different type of audience due to it being cheaper then Intel’s i7 tier one processors – and notably the higher performance, it seems they are on top of the game again.  As soon as I heard the news I took a look at the benchmarks and I was positively shocked as I had never seen a AMD CPU perform better than an Intel CPU – not even by a small percentage. So far, I have always been a big Intel believer, but AMD is showing that they have the capacity to build very competitive CPUs.

This being said, I do expect Intel to deliver us a even faster CPU later this year to compete with the AMD Ryzen and I endorse this. Let the giants battle so that we may enjoy increases in performance over the upcoming decade.
