    Make something really good and price it right and people wil buy it. Its hard to do but they've done it.

    Do we know how much of a share the same bean-counter had AMD pegged at one or two years ago, I'm not questioning their figures I'm just curious how big the growth has been.

    It's an interesting time for Intel to have supply problems. Given Intel can't blame anyone but themselves for supply problems, I suspect heads will roll.

    Well the CEO has already been switched out which i strongly believe was done in a way to not discredit him nor damage Intels reputation.

    Just have to hope my dead Ryzen is covered under warranty.

    However intel have poached a lot of top people over the past year. We might see those fruits next year

    They've been poaching GPU devs, not CPU. And CPU dev cycle is 3-5 years so you're more thinking of 2020 if at all.

    Re: AMD on track to gain 30 per cent desktop CPU market share

    I've been asked to spec 2 systems over the last couple of days, one a basic home PC with a fair bit of photo editing, and a gaming PC. In both cases I've specced Ryzen (2400G and 2600 respectively) because A) they're better value for money normally and B) this isn't normally and Intel's prices are going silly. If AMD play their cards right I can't see any reason for them to not make substantial market share gains. Then again Intel's mindshare is huge, the spectre/meltdown etc bugs would have sunk a lot of companies and now supply shortages to boot, yet no doubt Intel will still make huge profits.

    IIRC they've been taking on both, they hired Raja who's a GPU guy and a few months later Jim who's a CPU guy.

    I would have jumped from Intel to AMD already if RAM prices weren't so ridiculous (I need quite a lot due photo/video editing).

    Good news, we don't want a monopoly do we.

    There's no such thing as Intel RAM or AMD RAM. Who told you that you have to buy all-new RAM?

    I know that but there is such things as DDR3 RAM (owned) and DDR4 RAM (needed).

    So I told me I need to buy new RAM if I wish to upgrade to a Ryzen system (or upgrade at all).

    Well look at it this way - you could get a Ryzen 7 2700X with a £150 motherboard and 32GB of RAM and it will cost less than many RTX2080 cards.
