    Intel has every incentive to get the new process working regardless I don't think lack of competition was really a driver.

    After the new Threadripper launch, they have been really pushing 3175x out to overclockers to keep a grasp on the high end. Gonna be interesting what they pull for the 3990x launch.

    The cupboards are bare at that point, the bga dual chip module basically does not exist.

    The 10 core stuff is coming next year with lga1200 and 48 core HEDT parts in Q2. But they have nothing at the moment, and you can kinda feel it with the way their marketing handled this new amd launch,

    I think they hoped AMD would just do a 24 core and that would be it.

    Very true indeed! But I'm taking AMD based thinkpads as my next BGA for office work! Intel High Core CPUs are good but BGA and lack of long term support which is recommend if Spectre like exploits makes its way again and I'm not going to lose out on performance after uCode patches.

    Intel still has a lead in power efficiency at 15w vs the zen1 cores on the apus. Even with future patches it's unlikely to be enough.

    Got a very cheap used Lenovo T440p a while ago.

    Has a socketed CPU, got rid of the old i5 4300M and put in a i7 4800MQ with HD4600 graphics. Also got a FHD IPS panel, RAM and an SSD.
    Intel has been slouching for the better part of a decade while AMD played catch up. The performance out of this 7 year old CPU is still very much of a modern processor. Even a 7700HQ doesn't have much more on it...

    For less than 350$ I got a very robust, upgradeable and fast machine. God I miss regular laptops with socketable components.

    The 6 core certainly has a leg up but for the price that is solid.

    Running my t440p for a while now. Works great with the 4980hq and 2133mhz 16GB kit.
