I'm looking forward to Intel's counter. I feel like today is the equivalent to the AMD Phenom/Sandybridge era. There was the second gen Intel chips that had significantly higher boost clocks that could be overclocked well above 4ghz and that was the counter to AMD's Phenom ii hex core processor line. AMD had the higher core count then for example the AMD 1090T which was a six core chip but Intels quad core higher IPC sandybridge chips still surpassed them. Wouldn't it be something to have Intel's next gen chips boost significantly higher than they already do now? That'd be insane if the base clock was something like 4.5ghz and the boost almost hitting, if not reaching 6ghz. Though it may not be likely, i'd like to think it isn't out of the realm of possibility.Why would Intel lower their prices?
Haven't seen anything that would cause that to happen even with the latest updates. Take whatever is being said with a massive grain of salt. (Reality will hit in July once the new AMD CPUs are actually out)
Then Intel is coming out with their new CPU's end of 2019 - Beginning of 2020.
So we will see what Intel comes up with.
