$40 per thread for i7 2600k , $54 per thread 2500k, $23 per thread 3950X $29 per thread 3960X $31 per thread 3970X Just for perspective of how far we've come.
Would it be fair to compare it to what Intel was charging for an i7 desktop vs same gen I 5 to jump from 4 threads to 8 considering actual performance gained? $317 vs $216 in the case of sandy k's
smt vs h/t performance as well?
Just curious as to how you are measuring the fail.
5960x was $62 per thread. Ryzen 1800X = $31 As someone mentioned earlier.... game changer.
The scary thing for Intel is the up to 2X+ more performance per watt of the new Ryzen's . The FX 8350 got crucified for it's performance per watt vs the 3770K which was at roughly 1.6X across a variety of loads.
