    Yeah, I know the image was meant to be funny, and I see the "why?!?!" reaction to the i3, but I still couldn't keep myself from pointing out how poor the comparison is (critical of the image, not you), or how the specs on paper don't translate to the Ryzen 5 1600 being better in every single regard. Goes to show how hopeless I am, since those factors killed the joke to me. :vboops:

    The one thing I can appreciate about the image is that it reflects the traction AMD has gained among enthusiasts with Ryzen. Witnessing Intel's monopoly fading feels right.

    Yes, I completely agree that Intel has convoluted their own line-up by including i3s and i5s in the X-series. An i3 case sticker would be seen as humorous if slapped on a build with an Asus VI Extreme or Apex, yet a professional overclocker will probably use one of those exact motherboards to set a crazy ~9 GHz record with the i3-7360X. High-end and i3 don't go hand-in-hand; the combination can make for an overclocking headline, however.

    I was just dealing with this. I get about 15MB/s peak, wanted to limit Steam to 12 so it wouldn't cannibalize the line, but had to limit it to 10 because that's all I got.
