According to Forbes' Anthony Leather, Intel is prepping not only price cuts but a hyperthreaded i5 as a response to the soon to be released AMD Ryzen chip family. Could Intel's dominance in the desktop gaming scene soon be over? The rumor mill continues to turn regarding AMD's Ryzen CPUs, which are due for release

Intel has been overpricing its CPUs for the last couple of years.
It's about time someone gives them a run for their money.

Competition would be quite good: its been a decade+ since we've had that in the CPU realm. Consumers would only win.

and AMD is following the suite. Never have we had middle end GPUs cost over 200$, now they cost 250$ from AMD and 300$+ from nVidia. Now, according to rumors, ryzen is going to cost over 300$ if you want a good one. There used to be a time when Barton was under 200$, and it was flagship. Yes, intel is to blame, but AMD isn't dumb not to exploit the existing overpricing. Still cheaper but still way overpriced.

PS. Funny thing is, except for quad channel on intel, new 500$ CPU isn't really much better (it almost isn't) than their previous gen CPUs that you can get for under 200$. 4790K still going strong and beating all skylakes, quad channel or not. Albeit, 4790K isn't under 200$, but some 4xxxK or 3xxxK i5, even some i7s are.

$300+ ya, I'm sure Intel is worried, Intel will just tweak a cpu and put another name to it, just like their bullshit chipsets and socket changes. Not to mention the millions of devices out there with Intel. Not to mention the dismal market share AMD has in the cpu market. Why the fuck is AMD even around, how do you keep losing and staying in business? What's the prediction for AMD OOB now? 2019? 2020.. Rolling Eyes

I hate intel for their business strategy though, they have some very dirty tricks, especially with the x86 license. They just make it impossible for anyone else to enter the market and kill of anyone who does. Furthermore all the deals they make with various shops to only sell intel based systems...
