only problem is anyone with a bit of knowledge in their tech division is telling them to renew on AMD products. MSPs will also pimp AMD solutions going forward, if they haven't already. That only leaves home users victim to these shady tactics, which rarely end well (see Apple's battery update that ended in class action and free warranty replacements)
example - we ordered 100 Vega 10 books last week, BEFORE Ryuk made the news, weeks after windows defender started finding it... Now i'm like a prophet, even though I've been saying the EXACT SAME THING thru all of 2019. We'll be buying nothing but AMD products for the next 3-4 years assuming things keep this way. Maybe Shart's hitting the fan hard enough @ Intel CPU division to speed up the death of core.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
