There has been a leakening… have you seen it? AMD’s family of Ryzen processors are due to launch very, very soon, and in the last 24 hours there have been several price and model specification leaks from retailers and distributors around the world. Up to now, the expectation was that AMD would be competitive against Intel in price and performance, but wouldn’t price their chips too low to begin a price war from the start. With the pricing rumours going around now, though, that expectation appears to have been thrown out the window. How does $500 sound for a flagship eight-core, sixteen-thread high-end desktop processor sound to you?
