should of started this with zen 3 when they were better in 90% of everything.

intel's taken gaming back with 12th gen (with asterisk ofc) and zen 4 should take it back based on how prior improvements have been sicne zen1.

thoguh pretty sure server side epyc is still king?
 
I bet this is because of that long drawn-out EU lawsuit that Intel won. Intel heavily incentivized big name retailers if over 90% of their stock sold was Intel-based.
AMD basically said, "Fine. If it's okay to do this. THEN LET'S DO THIS!!!"
 
Intel heavily incentivized big name retailers if over 90% of their stock sold was Intel-based.
If there where any proof of that then intel wouldn't have won the case.
Funny. When Intel does the same thing it's "FINE THEM INTO OBLIVION FOR THIS HORRID TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE!!"
Because a company that already sells ~80% of the market volume, doing rebates can really harm the sells of a smaller company, a company that sells ~20% of market volume can't really make any more of a difference, it's not like they can magically produce more units, they just make less money while still selling the same amount.
 
They only won the EU case. They've faced similar antitrust cases in the US, Japan, and South Korea, all of which they lost or settled.
The one in the US was about the exact same thing plus AMD selling stuff to glofo that they had no right to sell, what was the japan and south korea ones about, never heard about those, japan and korea where a small part of this law suit as in there where raids on intel offices in those countries but it was for this case.
