41% more performance for the same price.

What's amazing is that AMD can offer you 16 cores for the same price Intel sells10 cores for, and kick Intel's ass doing it...

...glue and all.

AMD has always been able to lower their price to improve the price/performance ratio. That's hardly something to be proud about because they had to in order to sell their product. The problem has been that they had trouble making money in the process. Will that change? We'll see.

In this case AMD "lowered" their unit price to $1k and will make a very nice, effortless profit on each... No yield issues on these dice whatsoever.

It's been widely reported, but I'm sure you'll take issue...

Ex: overclock3d.net

According to this, 80% of Ryzen dice could theoretically be used to build epyc and threadripper chips, far greater than necessary. How do intel's bigger, monolithic dice yield, i wonder?

It's all based on a single rumor which I consider essentially impossible but believe whatever you want.

Doubling down at $9.90 was a bold move.

I just bought back my 10% at $15.23. They will probably push it lower, but want to be all-in for Ryzen 3, Threadripper, and Vega over the next few days.
