    I'll be so so so happy if Zen proves to be a cracker. Intel have no interest in pushing the consumer market forward right now.

    Agreed. Need competition sorely in the consumer market. Although I have been in the Intel camp since the Phenom, I want AMD to do well.

    Both Intel and Nvidia need a kick up the arse from a resurgent AMD. I hope AMD's new products are good enough to capture more market share and deliver that kick.

    I dont really follow the processor market anymore, but am I right in thinking its become a little stagnant due to lack of competitive competition?

    I really hope this launch goes well for AMD; the market sorely needs the competition.

    This article has been gently updated: I referred to AMD's "dwindling cash pile" while linking to a story which states its cash reserves went up that quarter, which was stupid; AMD's PR highlighted this, and I have edited the sentence to refer to "ongoing losses" instead as being a more accurate summary.

    It's been a stale market for too long, X58 was the last Intel platform that had me excited. I've run just about every Intel release since.. But it all started with my first self-funded PC, AMD XP1400+ which OC'd incredibly! I've longed to return home ever since.. but I'm an enthusiast and AMD haven't been able to convince me.

    I've been saving for a few months now, I'm hoping the 'pot' will be plenty stacked come ZEN/VEGA release Q1 17. I'm hoping for a late Feb release. Excited to see all the new AM4 motherboards 16 thread Zen CPUS for $500!! yes please! They just need to spank KabyLake and they'll be back in the game (IMO).

    Excited for the event... Please AMD, put on a good show.. your press events are awful! charisma and stage presence I'll be tuning in.
