Alright boyos, moving on.
I am not actually very excited about the Ryzen 3000. I am not going to buy another CPU until DDR5 comes out anyway.
I on the other hand am so freaking excited to finally upgrade. I came to this site back in 2011-2012 and asked for advice to build a gaming rig.
I'm still using the i5 2500k that is sorely needing an upgrade and it's going to be ryzen 3000 for sure.
I'm giddy.. Time to start saving for my next PC build. This i5-6600K is doing alright but it'd be nice to upgrade...
But you only need 4 cores for gaming! /s
We are planning on upgrading from the 6700k. My girlfriend wants to upgrade but has requested we wait until summer for the 3000 series. I'm not going to fight with her about it. Who am I to argue if she wants 8 cores and more speed.
Hehe... Starting to get back into video editing. My buddy wants me to create visuals for his DJ sets. Gonna upgrade to 16GB of RAM here soon.. also need another HDD for games
I just saw a story that Intel will be releasing yet another Skylake refresh this year. Ryzen 3000 is looking that much better. Can't wait. Now I just need to start saving.
They still seem to have enough hive mind customers to limp along until their engineering department figures out a new die size.
I have been happy with any Intel products I have used but it's tough right now. That 9900k is way too expensive. I have a habit of buying a higher tier than needed but I am not going to $600 for it.
Looks like we'll see an unveil in June at Computex, likely followed by a release soon after since that's been their pattern on the previous 2 generations.
Seeing those 4.5ghz rumors. Can't wait to get a cheap processor that can likely overclock close to those Intel chips. Ready to try AMD for once.
