both intel and amd will launch new chips amd with 7nm and intel with 10nm and both will have significant improvements over current chips, improvements which are worth the wait.. if i right now have a potato system i will keep at least until the end of this year and get 3rd gen ryzen
Why not wait to see what both companies bring to market in about 6 months. If you pull the trigger now you will be doing the "oh man I should have waited" thing. Plus that gives you more time to save up money for a killer rig. I always say AMD is for the pc "nerd" that knows how to tinker with this and that in the computer world, and Intel is for the person that wants to buy it and turn it on and use it.
