I don't think anyone expects any 16 core processor to be anything else, guarantee the 16 core intel chip loses its clock advantage and therefore the gaming advantage. Not that Ryzen is inadequate for gaming though.
Remember when we all used to make fun of the AMD MOAR COREZZ approach 6~ years ago for going up to 8 cores.
And now here we are about to see 16 core vs 18 core in the enthusiast segment.
I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say now that AMD was driving the future of the market.
I think what some wanted was more choice in PCB colour, at least when we were mostly still getting blue, red and yellow boards.Black, white, and black/white motherboard PCBs already exist though, so I got all I need lmao.Personally I'm completely indifferent to RGB lights, if they work aesthetically, Ill use em, if not, I wont.
