Do you want intel to not compete at all? Same question goes for Nvidia?
Not until market parity is reached, no. When market parity is reached, then it's game on. That's what's best for US as consumers. If it was best for them, I guarantee you that we'd already have it. The fact that Ryzen is killing Core all over the place, while not insignificant, doesn't make much difference. Even if Intel didn't sell a single CPU for 5 years and everyone was using AMD, the amount of money that Intel has already amassed means that it would still be an order of magnitude larger and richer than AMD because of its product diversification. The picture is far larger than you know and because of that, even with Ryzen, Intel could still cripple AMD again because AMD isn't powerful enough to stop it and we've seen that the US government is (as usual) useless at preventing it.

Currently consumers don't need to boycott Intel because AMD has the better CPU. Yes Nvidia has a monopoly on Graphics cards but then AMD would be a duopoly and soon thanks to competition will be a 3rd competitor to the market.
Some forget that while very limited instances Nvidia did embrace open standards but that was probably for its own benefit.
1 gsync compatible to vrr open standard
2 Vulkan Api.
It seems that Nvidia learns it lesson not when consumers boycott its products but when they have an option to purchase something competitive wink wink Intel amd AMD gpus.
The current gpu market is a shyte show but the outlook should get better from here with a 3rd player in the market.

Life is also too short to give nVidia a market monopoly. They've become so arrogant that they don't even really try to hide how they're screwing consumers.
True but I wouldn't want Nvidia or Intel to less competitive so that AMD could just catch up. I rather the later where AMD is more competitive than the other 2. Nvidia will learn its lesson when consumers have competitive products to purchase not when we boycott them imo.
Update some forget that AMD owns the gaming market not Nvidia or Intel!

It will get somewhat better, but it will never be like it was in the 90s when it seemed like a new card came out every other week because there were so many players in the market that aren't there anymore. Everyone has heard of nVidia and ATi and most people have heard of 3dfx and Matrox but there was also Diamond, Orchid and S3 in the gaming market because of their great performance while companies like Oak Technologies, CirrusLogic and SiS dominated the non-gaming market because of their low prices.

Those were the days brother, those were the days.
