    Quoting this just to preserve. This post may not age well.

    Well, the biggest difference is the price. Intel is allergic to reducing prices of older products, so since (for example) the 8700K is basically an immensely overpriced 10600K, what's the point of making 8th gen products that are assuredly going to sell worse?
    I'm not sure if Intel is still struggling to keep up with stock but if they are, the 8th gen is just a distraction.

    I rather like the 8300H in my Dell G3. Way better than the 6300H in my Dell 7559

    I don't know your personal computer history but you realize that hasn't been true, historically, even under the most generous interpretation, right?

    I've had a personal computer since 1987 but I built my first IBM-compatible 2004. At which point the obvious choice of CPU was AMD's Athlon 64 (I got the 3000+) which I subsequently upgraded to the Athlon 64 X2 (the 3800+), simply because they were better than the Intel offerings - at everything.

    That changed with C2D of course and I reckon most of us know history since that point on.

    I'm just pointing out that your statement has been literally, verifiably false within the last 15 years already. And it's arguably not true today, unless a) there's no budget constraints at all or b) you're gaming at 1080p with a 2080Ti.

    Making sweeping, permanent statements regarding an industry that moves as quickly as the hardware industry is ill advised and serves no purpose aside from waxing polemic on online forums.

    Haha. Poor guy, I really pity you. There is about 4-8% difference between the rival products ON FHD with a 2080 Ti. This means that in normal circumstances (1440P or 4K gaming with the best GPU or FHD gaming with slower GPU-s), the difference is 0. Plus Zen3 will arrive in some months, and will get another rumoured ~15% IPC gain. That means it will at least equal this difference, or even be a bit better. Poor guy, really. :))))

    LOL

    All I know is that unless Intel pulls some magic trick this year, my next system will be a Ryzen 4900X, after 13 years on Intel builds. So I guess their "gaming advantage", to me, is perilous at best.

    Can i reuse this sentence for the next foreseeable future of this bullshit posting on those forums?
    With little changes it adapts very well to most of those intel/amd and ati/nvidia debates this forum has been polluted with last 2 years.

    You also don't have to flamebait here. Only warning.

    The hard fact is: Intel is becoming closer and closer to AMD, and AMD is starting to outperform them in various areas. The next gen machines, which are truly next gen this time due to SSD and design, are all using AMD stuff.

    Not only does this make running these PC ports on them slightly better in all probability, it really isn't going to matter much in the end if both continue improving. Neither one or the other is going to kill you, and AMD seems a little hungrier atm.

    People take issue with your absolute claim that it will never change. Well, it very well is changing now. But why shill for a corporation IDK.

    I mean.. if you really want to be harsh that's arguing on the Internet for you. :p

    Making generic bold statements with little to back them up.

    I certainly don't lay claim to that particular sequence of words so by all means, it's not like you need my permission.
