With the Ryzen 3000 series, this dynamic changes. AMD’s new 7nm process technology allows it to ramp up the performance to challenge Intel’s higher-end lineup without veering into power consumption profiles that look more like a welder than a CPU, and it’s already shipping the CPUs retail.
The noise of better performance and price from AMD’s lineup agains Intel’s started in E3. Seems it wasn’t just marketing, but an actual win. Is this a new close-race? or is AMD overtaking a sluggish Intel and will start kicking them while down?
Seems like a good time to transition to ARM’s performance/cost S-curve.
