    Awesome news!
    The only reason I purchased AMD is because they were cheaper and still fast.
    Hopefully they don't bump up the prices now.

    Can we say you bought AMD because it was simply better? Ya see, I always root for the underdog.

    Sure, I definitely root for the "under dog"
    But they were cheaper... :)

    If they start raising prices above Intel then I'm not sure what I would buy.
    I'm glad AMD finally decided to follow suite and go with the pin-less CPUs with contacts instead.
    But I'm never out to get the fasted CPU, fastest Memory and fasted video card.
    I've always purchased budget components and upgraded later when the prices drop.
    Unfortunately video card prices have not dropped because of bitcoin mining. Sucks for us gamers.
