    AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUS - Zen 2 CPUs Launched

    Better late than never to get a post up to discuss the latest and greatest from AMD

    In short, these new Ryzen processors continue along the disruptive path AMD has followed since early 2017, and if you crave more cores for your money, and aren’t after the last word in gaming performance (Intel appears to retain its advantage after our early testing), it’s an easy choice to make right now.

Even AMD’s own Threadripper line-up is made irrelevant below 16 cores.

    All in all, while AMD still has some way to go, they’ve never been this close to Intel in over a decade. This is no longer the story of the AMD that is trying to catch up to Intel; this is now the story of the AMD that is once more a formidable rival to Intel. And, if the company is able to continue to execute as well, we should be seeing even more exciting things in the future.
