@Jasper Störningar there are also older overpriced AMD CPUs (see Anandtech conclusion chart) and they don't come with iGPUs like Intel's which Iris Pro/Plus also lead in speed/watt. So Linus is dumbass like your kind who can't account for everything. Why don't I paste my notes so far of the best desktop leaders?

@Jasper Störningar Intel lead desktop speed/watt for almost all power classes. AMD underreport 9 3950X's TDP by 20% to 40%; see the Anandtech report.

im going for intel 9400f with rx570 2x8 gddr4 2660 ram, ssd 248 wd green + hdd 1tb wd blue + intel optane :3 the price is the best thing of all this and it runs all the games in a high quality level... i know amd has more alternatives with OC but if you don't want that shit because you appreciate your money this is my best recommendation.... sorry amd maybe i will build a new pc some year later as Amd seems to be the best in next years but lets see if they fix the power consumption and heat of components... for now i'm going for Blue team and I know red team is really good but not good enough yet in my opinion :3

Wow! it comes with 18 cores....... The secret is for software developers to use parallelism to take advantage of all that power.

This video will give shivers to all intel marketings. All dollars down the drain. Anybody buying this processor will surely come here. Will be interested to see intel sales numbers on this.

I have to agree with you. Intel management are scum. I worked there for many years in the microprocessor group. I pray for God to implode the company, knock down the buildings and salt the Earth, so nothing again will grow there. Go AMD!

Well, It's good that AMD is now in rise and I wish them luck, their team did really great job, I am in the Intel team and I will forever be, my friends are considering AMD over Intel. Well you know, I remember when even thinking about AMD was a joke. It is hard to be the best all the time, Intel had to fall to understand and learn from their mistakes. It is truth that they are still running 14nm obsolete technology (obsolete in terms of CPU makers). Intel should say: Well done AMD, great CPU! And no to try convince everyone that they still hold the flag, consumers nowadays are NOT IDIOTS and specially not people in IT sector, thinking about telling sh!t and people will eat it is VERY STUPID and only proof that marketing team of Intel is rubbish. Just admit it, they finally catch up after decade. Now is your turn Intel to produce great chip again, but please without any sh!t, just do the great chip. By the way, AMD ATI company value combined is 43 billion USD, Intel ONLY company value is 243 billion USD, so much for switching to AMD..

Not much of a victory when a 10300 129$ CPU will still beat a 950$ 3950x in gaming.

first part of Linus's video - are you kidding me with this 10980XE?! Intel is run by chickenshit, weasels.
Dunkey- Man, he must hate this shit.
Linus- It has a little something for everyone. *[roll credits]* but also, intel be sneaky.

My first cpu was a i7 3770k, it was great, then like 2 years ago I got the i7 8086k, not bad. But it will be my last, AMD is killing them and seems to be working with customers in mind. Nvm the price to performance, they are just getting better than intel over all. And they are shady to their customers. My next CPU will be the ryzen 9 3950x

this means the true price of 9980xe was 999$, so basically they overprized it by 100%.
