The thing is, up until the new CEO came on board, there was no one to take the reigns and steer all of AMD in the right direction. I personally am appreciative because I now have 2 Ryzen builds that I have had since last March at release. Also, she is helping with RTG and taking care of things there, especially with keeping things quiet and stopping a lot of that hype that was occurring before. In the PC industry, we desperately need competition or it will be left behind by the mobile industry. I blame, at least in part, the fact that Intel dragged their feet for years will slight bumps in performance as part of the reason for the decline of the PC. This is the exact reason competition from AMD is critical and needed, otherwise, the PC market will decline faster and even more than before. Edit: AMD is not dead, despite what many were saying over the years, thankfully.
