AMD vs. The World

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
As an Ohioan, I have a natural tendency to root for the underdog (a la, the "Ohio vs. the world" attitude from the Cavs and Buckeyes). Ever since I became interested in PCs, I've wanted to see AMD come up and kick some competitor butt. This doesn't mean that I'm "team Red" or whatever, I just simply want to see the likes of Intel and Nvidia challenged on the enthusiast level. Why? One of the best things about building a computer when I got into it was that it was the cheaper alternative from buying pre-built. But ever since the competition got away from AMD (Bulldozer core anyone?), prices for OEM components have been steadily rising because of the lack of good competition.

All of this, many of you already know, I get it. But with the recent addition of the RX 480 to the GPU competition (still kinda skeptical; I want to see how GTX 1060 performs), I'm hoping that AMD is making strides forward. And with the upcoming release of Zen, I'm even more excited.

So what do you guys think? What will make Zen a win for AMD? Personally, I want to see it surpass at least Ivy Bridge. I want to see what AMD can do with its SMT as well.

Sorry for the long post/rant. I don't really have a lot of people to talk to this sort of stuff about lol.
