AMD's current leadership is the leadership getting them out of the hole. They are great for the end user. Sure I have a 9900k, but without them bringing the pressure I am sure that 9900k would have been left to the HEDT market and would have been twice the price. Without AMD bringing the 1800x to the market we wouldn't be where we are today. When the 1800x came out it came close to or matched the performance of a CPU that was twice the price.
You keep complaining about how AMD has increased the price... but their prices are respective to the performance they offer. Have you seen the reviews of the new 24 and 32 core CPUs? They obliterate the competition in the workloads that market segment is meant for. The price of their 32 core is the same price as an 18 core was just a few months ago....yet it COMPLETLY destroys it in the workloads that segment is for.
The CPUs in the HEDT market aren't meant for the general public. If it is too expensive for your needs...don't get it. There are CPUs that are in the mainstream segment that have the power or more power than what was once only in the HEDT segment. We now have 6c/12t, 8c/16t, 12c/24t, and 16c/32t in the mainstream at prices that fit almost every budget.
Stop fussing about the prices of CPUs that aren't meant for you in the first place and stop fussing about retailers marking prices up and acting like it is AMD's fault. For someone that has been a member since 2014... you should know this is business as usual for the market when there is a great product out that can't keep up with the demand of consumers.
