I have an Intel processor and it performs very well. I know a lot of people that pride themselves on owning the latest and best tech though, so I understand the appeal.

30 years ago I was like that, had to have the latest and greatest computer, spent a lot of money too on computers. Now I have settled down and enjoy the breeze. :lol:

I too have the Intel processor an i7 in my desktop and it serves me well for what I do nowadays, mostly writing and surfing with a bit of photography and audio software to play around with.

Maybe this is just the incentive that Intel need to make further progress. Competition certainly drives innovation. :)

They admitted themselves that getting to the 10nm for laptops was a struggle. They are a year or two behind AMD's 7nm process, however now that AMD has done a press release about 5nm Intel, I think have crapped themselves. The new ZEN 4 5nm from AMD are boasting 1.84x density increase. It doesn't seem a lot but we are talking billions here after all " “TSMC reported 1.84x density improvement over the company’s own [7nm] node." Now with Intel struggling so much. And that's just the run of the mill consumer CPU. Data centres? Well that's a different story.

" AMD said its second-generation EPYC CPUs—code named Rome—doubles the performance and cuts the power consumption of its first generation of server chips—code named Naples. The new processors offer more than 50% better performance and up to 40% lower costs than Intel's latest Cascade Lake CPUs, AMD said. That reduces costs for cloud and enterprise customers deploying the chips in data centers by 25% to 50%. "

Here's the article;
