It looks like Intel has a real Ryzen to worry
AMD’s second-generation Ryzen chips are already here. They’re significantly faster than their predecessors and just as affordable. In short, they’re even better Intel CPU alternatives and real reasons to worry for the king of the computer processor market.
Preorders kicked off last week for the second-generation Ryzen chips, with prices starting at $199 for six-core versions and going all the way up to $329 for a new eight-core Ryzen model. The chips are now out, and reviews are overwhelmingly positive. It sure looks like AMD’s Ryzen 7, and Ryzen 5 chips are worthy additions to your machine, especially if you haven’t upgraded the processor in a few years.
