    AMD has no structures left. Nvidia and Intel be like 'All ur base are belong to us'

    *** nvidia is through the roof due to several big design wins in the last couple of days.

    meanwhile AMD bought Oculus sticker for $999 machines

    Yes they did. and they did the same thing few months before that, and a year before...

    Bad news is that Cannonlake will bring 8 cores into consumer space,
    so even if Zen turns out to be a huge success story, that might last only for 6 months

    On the desktop GPU side AMD is slowly eating into Nvidia's mid-tier market share, hence Nvidia is stepping up with game bundles.
    But this is so inconsequential, that I'm mentioning it only because of the forum GPU-centricity :)

    Intel stated 6/8 real cores. But I do not see crowd which targets i3 or low i5 to have funds for even 6-core chip.
    Intel simply realized that high end users can't be milked anymore with 5~10% improvements per generation, so they'll give us more cores we wanted.

    But I really wonder if we'll get i5 with 6 cores (without HT). And whatever intel brings, I am waiting for Zen. If that is close to intel in performance per Dollar (entire system, since CPU does not run by itself), then I'll take Zen.

    AMD catching up with Intel sounds wonderful but it seems to be just a dream. At least for now. In the future, who knows?
