How so? I don't the release of something else somehow invalidates the performance of a 7700k at this price...
Not about validation or invalidation. Sure, if one must have a new CPU today... by all means buy it at this price.
But if you have a working PC that's a SB or better, then the 7700k isn't a big upgrade. A 6-8 core Ryzen may be worth waiting a wee bit longer (next month?). No?
Put off that Intel for pricing the Broadwell 8-core at $1800. Rooting on AMD to bring some sanity back to moar cores.
Stop with that drivel. Don't like it, don't buy it. AMD will not outperform Intel. Just get over it.
Do we know its not? I thought the leaks were good."Wait for Ryzen they said. It might be worth it they said."
- People who waited for Ryzen
If those prices are right, AMD just threw in the towel.This... from the guy who "liked" a nasty post in this thread.
Anyway... The Christian Post is reporting a Ryzen release of early March. They also claim prices of 8 core of $580 to $720. Game changing if accurate.
