    It's definitely an interesting time for CPUs. I'd love to see Intel and AMD have a proper battle for supremacy. Hopefully that's what's starting with this cycle, because it would be great for us consumers.
    A price "war" would also be welcome !

    It already is. If you look at the prices of the enthusiast class CPUs in the past and these, you will see we have made out pretty well, I think. They still have the mainstream class, I assume as well.

    The problem with price wars is, "shortcuts" will be made on the products, through which quality almost always suffers , and this is because todays consumers want cheap/budget prices.

    Or just can't afford them because of inflated prices and "Were the kings of processors, we can charge whatever we want " !!!

    You can't confuse the mainstream class of CPUs with the Enthusiast class. In the mainstream class is where price/performance makes a huge difference. In the enthusiast class, performance trumps most everything else. Price is secondary but it does count somewhat. To the true enthusiast performance is king. If they have to pay more for better performance, that just makes it like most everything else in the world. If you want the best performance/speed/quality or the best whatever you are looking for, you know you are going to have to pay more. You know you can't get a Porsche for a Ford price.
    Just how I see it.

    Yep, I agree, essenbe. It sure will be interesting to see the final set of CPUs, MB configurations and price options. Sure hope AMD Ryzen (and Vega) becomes and stays competitive for a long time. Many feel Intel wouldn't even have come out with these options at this point if it wasn't for AMD, and instead keeping to their usual slow release/high profit margin approach. Main stream or enthusiast - what's going on now is good for consumers IMHO.

    I agree totally. Rumor had it that this release wasn't even on Intel's road map until Ryzen. The reduction in prices shows AMD has put some pressure on Intel. Intel still has their 'scheduled' next release the first of next year. That should be interesting.

    Now that's one wild enthusiast's case. Dual system hardware support as well.

    But you know what I kept thinking when I was looking at this? I wonder how many fans Corsair Link reports on that thing?

    I'll have to get me to a Computex showing one of these years. Taiwan is a little far, and hot as I think it's around 33C right now.

    I saw that video too. I've been wondering ever since why I would want 2 computers in one case. I finally decided if I can't figure out the reason, It must not be for me.
