You do realise that benchmarks exists right? from the 4000 series to the 7000 series the needle barely moved.That is a common misconception I've seen been thrown around with no actual data to back it up.
Intel consistently doubled the performance every 5 years at the same price point (2010 to 2015, 2012 to 2017 etc.). Amd on the other hand, from 2017 to 2022 has increased perfromance by 35-40% at the same price point (1700 to 5600x).
Their new r5 model needs to be a lot faster and cost 300 euros to actually match the performance increase intel was giving us in their STAGNANT years.
So yeah, I really don't get people throwing random stuff like stagnant intel around when they haven't actually checked the numbers. Amd is way more stagnant then the worst years of intel.
After looking at the last few generations of Intel and AMD CPUs separately, here's our final installment in the gaming performance progress series. We compare a decade...
As you can see, from the 3770k to the 7700k the performance improvement just came from faster RAM and higher clock speeds (DDR3 vs DDR4 and 3.9GHz vs 4.5GHz). Your "double the performance at the same price point" is just pure fantasy.
Years of Intel giving you slight bumps and no extra cores, all packed within new sockets every 2 years.
