  1. Well, I guess the question is then - would you pay $1,150 more for two more cores and a little faster gaming frame rates at 1080p? In this case I prefer the oranges, as in the orange in the Ryzen logo. Note also that, according to rumors, the 14-core Threadripper 1976X has approx. the same speeds or higher as the 8-core Ryzen 7 1800X (3.6/4.0 GHz)! If true, this means AMD has optimized the architecture a great deal in the two months since the Ryzen 7 release in March. That's six more cores at the same speed! It also looks promising for the Ryzen 2xxx iteration later this year, or next year.
  2. The 18-core Intel i9 won't be here until next year, I hear. And at a price of nearly 2,000 dollars it'll be very expensive. Meanwhile, AMD 16-core arrives in late July this year and it's rumored it'll cost $849(!) IMO, any price of AMD's top HEDT (High-End Desktop) processor below $1,000 will result in increased market shares for AMD and put a serious pressure on Intel and its prices, which will benefit us all - both when it comes to a more healthy competitor to Intel (and Nvidia) in the future, and lower prices for all consumers. Personally, I'm aiming for a new rig with a top motherboard - probably the Asus Zenith Extreme - with a 12-core (or 14-core) Ryzen Threadripper, 64+ GB memory at 3400+ speed, a fast M.2 SSD disk (1 TB Samsung 960 Pro) and the top dual Vega card coming later this year. Before you ask - Yes, I'll need it to run Star Citizen. The game will love more cores, lots of fast RAM, and a fast SSD. Besides, I want to run SC in 4K with high/ultra settings.
