AMD's Ryzen is definitely a notable moment for the PC industry. With AMD back in the game, Intel will now have to up its game and bring out CPUs which are again competitive. We honestly hope this sets off a new battle between the two giants from the Silicon Valley. After all, the consumers have the most to gain from competition. The Ryzen 7 1800X is great when it comes to multi-threaded performance but single threaded performance is a tad behind in certain benchmarks. However, the fact remains that AMD does this for less than half the price. Even with the modest price cut that Intel CPUs have undergone over the last two days, AMD's Ryzen CPUs still offer a much better overall performance. Who can say no to more cores? Be it gaming, video editing or running everyday home tasks, all applications are slowly moving towards a multi-threaded approach and that's the way to go.
