    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.

    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.

    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.

    Interesting perspective, especially when he starts talking about motherboards.

    Ya know I've been telling myself to buy AMD stock since it was like 3 bucks a share.

    Still haven't...

    Probably not a bad time. Manufacturers are investing heavily in AMD products now. Linus said one of the motherboard manufacturers alone is producing 30 different boards for Ryzen 3000. My buddy has been holding onto AMD stock for long time and I think his time has finally come to reap the benefits ha.

    Intel could be put in a precarious position, especially considering the introduction of ARM processors in laptops.

    Where's that 16 core at? Excited to see some real benches though

    I haven't been keeping up as well as I used to but weren't there rumors of Threadripper being discontinued or something like that.

    That 3700X is tempting. Completely unnecessary, but I want it.
