Cannot wait, looks like the son will get the 4790k and I can get 3x the cores and a frequency bump for what I paid for it in 2013...... we may be in the golden age of CPU's again!!
Now if we could only get some of this AMD chiplet design in GPU......
I would like to buy another system and corresponding GPU but with no competition from AMD, meh performance gains over what I bought 1.5 years ago, ridiculous price to performance ratio, concerning product quality, and features I'm not sure will be adopted widely I really don't see any reason to...
The more I hear about these issues the less I regret purchasing one..... My 1080ti is going to have to last another year or so it seems. Sorry to hear about this issue for those who have purchased one already. Hopefully AMD can release something competitive soon.
Not the best looking chart but tried to put together some price/performance
