    During the first quarter of 2017 AMD will be releasing their latest high-performance desktop processor, named Ryzen. The chip is based on AMD's Zen core architecture, and judging from the information released so far Ryzen looks very promising.

    I'm looking forward to having some competition again - remember the days when AMD ruled (briefly!)? Intel has walked it these past few years, for the most part at least.

    Things have been pretty boring CPU-wise for quite some time.

    I'll be building a new system this year. (April-ish) I'll be building an AMD. :)


    I hope to make a video of the build
