Just the fact that AMD is getting close for the same price is an achievement, gives us a good price war finally. Ryzen 1 and 2 didn't really do what AMD claimed they could do, seems Intel always had better options for less.
Better options for less? Intel had better options sure, but they also cost (significantly) more. If Intel had better options for less, AMD would still be in the same hole they excavated themselves into.
