Hmm well for some beginner or mid level builds with these AMD chips it would be a good option, high clocks and hopefully room to OC.
It's always good to see new CPUs on the market.
It's also always good to see AMD still kicking to create a bit more competition! :)
I agree, anything that they successfully do has the effect of reigning in Intel to some degree. Without AMD around, we would be paying a lot more for gear.
I don't think Intel would charge more but it might be longer between new tech put out to the public if they were the only desktop chip manufacturer. Then again i'm still waiting on ARM or Samsung to throw their hat into the ring and see if they can do anything.
More competition, especially with guys like Samsung, is most of the time, a good sign for the market!
