Been awhile since I've posted anything. But today I wanted to go over the leaked Ryzen Processor price list that has been floating around the internet.
Officially the only confirmed prices are the Ryzen 7 CPU's since they are officially available tomorrow! Based on the initial benchmarks I am very excited to see how the rest of AMD's line up performs. The 1800x is on par with the intel 6800k a $1000.00 CPU. I am hoping real world performance is also comparable in all categories which may cause the first Intel price drop that I can remember. I think it also might bring some competition back into the CPU market. For a long time going on 5 years now Intel has been ahead in IPC and single core performance which equals out to superior gaming and rendering performance. But with these new Ryzen chips competing with and beating some current gen Intel hardware it may be time for Intel to get serious again.
Because of the lack of competition the increase in performance from Haswell to Skylake to Kabylake have been very minimal. Especially since Haswell is still such a strong performer a lot of people (myself included) haven't budged off our gen 4 CPU's and for good reason.
So my hopes for this year
1. We see Intel prices on Haswell, Skylake, and Kabylake decrease to be more competitive with Ryzen counter parts.
2. We see AMD take a larger portion of the market share to help them to continue making innovations like this.
3. That Intel delivers some serious performance increases over Kabylake now that there is some competition in the CPU marketplace.
Thats all for now, thanks for reading
