    The irony of the situation is how many people are going to look at some of the problems AMD is having and the fact that Intel will most likely start dropping prices and go buy the Intel chip they couldn't afford before. Certainly not AMD's intention.

    Yea Steve.....that is a possibility but I really doubt that Intel will drop their prices to be in line with AMD pricing....

    Wouldn't it nice to see a Processor price war like the old time Gas price wars........

    Far too early to say exactly what will happen, a lot will depend on how the things perform in the real world compared to lab tests.

    Micro Center has cut prices on a good number of the better Intel processors, some deep cuts too.........but they are for in-store pickup only so if you live close enough to one of their stores you could take advantage now.......

    I am not an AMD fanboy but I am a cost conscious consumer and for the money AMD is still a good option....
    Well, if you don't need top of the line Intel to compete with the AMD's, then the cost difference won't be as much. I don't want to say, "I have the most powerful chip AMD makes", I would rather say "My chip is faster than that chip"

    Intel would have to literally decimate prices to get them down to AMD levels (here in Australia).

    At my normal parts supplier (most expensive CPU):
    • Intel i7-6950X (~$2300)
    • AMD FX-8350 (~$230)

    True. Most people equate Intel to quality and reliability and lower thermals. One generation of chips won't change this mindset amongst people and like you mentioned, most people might actually buy the price reduced Intel CPU instead of AMD.

    They have always done this, nothing special, and especially nothing to do with AMD's release of Rhyzen.

    You can't seriously equate a 6950X and an 8350. Nobody looking for either one would consider the other one as an alternative. Having said that, the 6950X is well out of the price range for most people, no matter where you live.
