Re: Intel "shouldn't be selling CPUs?"

As analyzer says, it depends on what you are doing and whether you are an outlier usecase. In my case, I wasn't interested in single threaded performance, but performance for multiple virtual machines for testing on a desktop... Ryzen 7 was a no-brainer, 8 cores and 16 threads for around the price of a quad core Intel processor.

This is the first rig I've had that doesn't slow down when running multiple VMs.
