    Because it's cheaper than paying for two separate systems.

    (For the record I'm no Intel fan boy and I've used AMD in nearly ALL of my previous builds, however I've gotten tired of always having the lesser performing system)
    Realistically I don't agree with you. if you need the cores (multi-threaded workloads), Threadripper is actually more power efficient in perf/watt & perf/core.

    As for everything else you tried to make an argument for their both the same. You can only argue for insignificantly better single core performance, but why bother with a HEDT then. Get the i7-7700k.

    The AMD platform is not faster-enough than Intel to move away. As much as I hate the monopoly of Intel, they gained the monopoly by doing something right... That stability and wealth of material supporting the platform makes me more comfortable when spending that kind of money on a platform.

    Looks like I'll be squeezing every last bit of performance out of this 5960X setup...
    LOL if you are still on a 5960x and it's fine for you then don't upgrade, but just a sleight correction. Intel didn't gain the monopoly by doing something right. It's actually quite the opposite.

    Check out adore TV's video (think it's Intel monopoly)

    You could argue in a sick way that they did do something right if you are not interested fair play and actually letting the products do the fighting. Not something Intel was good at pre-sandybridge.

    It's actually a miracle that AMD is still with us today.

    Re: QOTW: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X or Intel Core i9-7900X?

    I'm Happy to go with AMD for all my builds. Vega 56 + Ryzen TR (all looks great for an upgrade path)

    currently on a R7-1700@3.9Ghz, 32GB RAM & 2xSapphire RX480's & have been happy ever since (it's been way better than my prev system, [i5+gtx780 lol that didn't last long])

    probably gonna go Ryzen TR 1950x, keep the 32GB RAM, and 4xRX Vega 56's (eth mining) probably gonna get 2 to start off, but would love to play with 4xcrossfire.

    Nah, Intel need AMD to exist to be able to claim they are not a monopoly. I think if Intel wanted AMD to not exist, they would be as big as VIA who were once everywhere and considered a bigger threat to Intel than AMD. Anyone bought a VIA product recently?

    With the steps they've taken against AMD behind the scenes i'd wager to differ, but I do think that what you say have merit at-least initially, but sadly that quickly changed from the 90's onwards.

    I highly recommend Adore TV's Video on YouTube regarding the history of both companies. It's all backed up with sources.
    I knew some of it before I watched the video, but was totally shocked to see how far down the rabbit hole goes.

    Re: QOTW: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X or Intel Core i9-7900X?

    I would go Threadripper. But not the top end one. I would be more inclined to go with the 8-core bottom end TR long with a lovely 60 PCIe lane motherboard. The 8 physical cores would more than cover the performance needs while the PCIe lanes would handle my I/O and feature needs for a very very long time.

    Nah, I think if that video were really accurate then lots of people would dismiss it as hysterical nonsense, so it holds back a bit. I remember when Athlon first came out the only motherboards you could get tended to be in plain white boxes as motherboard manufacturers were scared of what Intel would do if they openly made Athlon motherboards. At the risk of sounding tin foil hat, I remember reading about that first at Tom's Hardware back in the day but Googling for it now I came up with: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/tom,review-4037.html which mentions the white box boards, but the link in there to the original article appears to be erased, like someone didn't like it...

    But still, I think that Intel have always let AMD up for just enough air to keep them going, so they can point and say "Monopoly, us?"
