    I look forward to seeing how the new AMD chip family performs, it would be good to see them out in front again.

    I also wonder if a) It takes a competitor to spur Intel to make a better CPU and b) If Intel do manage something to rival the new AMD whether it will be stable or suffer from instability.

    From my own perspective I have two main machines with i7s, one almost a year old and the other around 5.5 years old, both of which I'm very happy with.

    The last AMD setup I had, however, built around 2012, proved to be a bit flakey. Let's hope AMD manage to hit the sweet spot.
