    No one won. It is too complex to compare, given how little time they had.

    With that said, I still find it a joke that you pay twice, sometimes, even more for Intel's top dollar line, the price to gets only a marginal amount better performance, but hey, that is how it works.

    Yes and no. Absolute performance (like 6%), AVX in HPC, single threaded tasks, and certain specific other use cases, you are absolutely correct.

    On price point, AMD wins, as well as winning in certain specialized tasks. So it will depend on software optimizations or special software, etc., as well as tasks, but Intel is going to be hit hard. Especially looking at those energy savings!

    Is it me or is that Anandtech article also not making a point of how cheap EPYC is in relation to Intel while still offering 90% of performance and even outperforming it or holding on its own depending on the tasks at hand?

    That is exactly what they are doing.
    They specifically mentioned that 1 week is not enough to test server CPU's. Such CPU's require rigorous testing under crazy workloads, to most scenarios play out.

    I enjoy their stance, it is a neutral one, until they can have a better review done.

    Might be the whole IVR instead of FIVR
    Exactly, especially considering AMD had less than 1% of the market share before EPYC. If estimated at $16B, and AMD takes 20%, they just made $3.2B. If they take more than that, well... So, AMD is set to pay back the large debt, turn a profit in a matter of years, AND put in the R&D to successfully execute 7nm. AMD isn't beating Intel, but they are landing some monster blows on Goliath, something everyone loves to see.

    Core i7-7800X vs. 7700K, 6 or 4-Cores for Gaming?
    Plus Ryzen comparisons, 7800X is more $ for worse performance than Ryzen in comparison. Direct Ryzen 1700 scores to be added to the gaming charts...will update when they show up. Pretty dismal results for the X299 & i7-7800X
