just saying...their cpus are the bomb nowadays. The ryzen 20xx series and now the 30xx series are putting up a serious fight against intel. Anyone else surprised at this? Im also a bit of an intel fan, but I purchased my first amd build around an amd 2600 for the first time in almost 8 years. Whatever they are doing I hope they keep it up...the prices of the cpus are all going down because of the competition, and baby im loving it. When could you buy a 6 core processor for under $130 in the last 10 years of intel dominance?? Never.
