AMD is suppose to make computers much cheaper not about the same.
If this was the 90's era, the ryzen 3000 entry level apu would have been at least 6core/12thread CPU at say 100USD and the motherboard would be very affordable too. The top probably would have been an 36 core variant at reasonable price. If AMD had done so, we would see big changes in software/game development. Its really looking like we need China/Russia to catch up and produce competing products that they are willing to dump high end products on the market at low prices so everyone can enjoy the benefits of 8cores and beyond. Otherwise, we are just stuck with the current technology is enough for current usages argument.
I miss the old days where say the top GPU/CPU would become the entry level next-gen GPU/CPU and the top would actually be significant better (50%+). The world was also much nicer place politically and people treated people with much more respect and care. Now, its so common to meet people that only care about themselves and how you can benefit me.
Ive been sitting idly by... but this right here takes the cake. It is ppl like you that goes this industry messed up, it's ppl like you who see a rumor with a label "grain of salt" and get mad when the info don't directly line up. You sit here and complain about AMDs pricing... what is the cost of an Intel 8, 12 and 16 core?
Nvidia sells a 2080ti for 1300 and ppl buy it up, then complain about AMD pricing. As far as we know it, everything AMD is releasing next month is faster/cheaper than its direct competitor... yet ppl complain about pricing. Yall are crazy, AMD is a business and a business is in business to make money. It doesn't matter what the price is if it's better/cheaper than its competitors. I urge you to go buy an Intel 16 core processor and a 2080ti.
When AMD was the market leader in price/perf, majority still bought Intel and Nvidia. What do you expect a company to do? They sell better for cheaper and ppl still buy the more expensive crap. AMD is not here to make Intel and Nvidia's products cheaper.
Lastly, if you cant afford it don't buy it, it's as simple as that. If you weren't going to buy it anyways, don't complain about its pricing.
I paid 1k for my 1950x, this 3950x is a lot faster and 250 less, what is there to complain about?
