What a load of tosh. There is no “collective sentiment” within this industry. If there were then no one would buy this 11900K part and we both know it will sell by the thousands.
Right now the Ryzen 3 3300X costs more than the Intel i5 10400F. Anyone who chooses the 3300X over the Intel part because of “Sentiment” deserves to be ridiculed as a stupid fanboy.
Both companies are multi billion dollar American corporations. Believe me neither of them care about you at all, they sit down and have meetings to form strategies of taking as much of your money as possible! And both are just as bad as each other. In fact I believe it was AMD that suffered the most recent class action against them.
Users should buy what’s best for them today. Right now for enthusiasts that’s AMD Ryzen &. Threadripper series and for budget users it’s Intel core i3 - i5.
The oh-so familiar (for the past 4 years) tripe.
AMD revolutionized the industry in 2017, offering 8 multi-threaded cores for the price of Intel's 4. Along with very good performance per core. AMD brought a halt to 10 years of Intel milking us dry. Without AMD we'd still be getting quad-cores at $300. And if AMD is driven out of the market - as Intel tried so very hard to do - we'll be back to the milking. How hard is that to understand?
In 2017, Intel fanboys had to switch from gloating over uncontested leadership to damage control: moving the goalposts, comparing apples to oranges, cherry-picking results, focusing on single-core / FPS, magnifying every AMD mistake etc. All the the while claiming that both "multi-billion dollar" companies were somehow equivalent so don't favor one over the other etc etc.
And then... Intel blew 10 nm !!! For years and years!! While AMD executed to their plan and beyond. At that, most of the Intel fanboys just gave up. But a few persist, lamely chiming in on CPU news to badmouth AMD.
I say: Thank god for AMD and their miraculous recovery. I (finally) realized what was happening in 2017 and bought an 1800X at launch. I haven't given Intel a cent since then and don't plan to. Not because I hate Intel (though I despise their CPU marketers) but because AMD needs, has earned, and deserves my business. For those reasons I will even pay more for their chips.
