Ah intel, for many they are the be the gold standard for CPU manufacturers , for over a decade they have been the one dominant company as far as processors are concerned.
But it seems now in the wake of AMD's new Ryzen platform it seems all those years of dominance have turned the brains of Intel to melt into a puddle in their reaction to it.
First lets talk about Kaby Lake X and hoo boy is this one a royal mess.
Now don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with enthusiast grade processors, Ryzen will soon have threadripper and i will be very interested in how that looks in comparison with what I have in my Ryzen 7 1700.
But looking at the Core i7-7740X and the Core i5-7640X they are simply repackaged versions of the 7600K and the 7700k meaning that the so called enthusiast grade is getting a processor that you can buy for cheaper on the non enthusiast grade platform. Intel has failed to make this new platform to look appealing on that front.
Look I am not saying the whole of the X299 platform is bad but man is there a lot of other things wrong with it, like limited PCI express lanes.
I mean yes Z270 is getting old but the new platform looks very weak compared to what AMD is offering right now, not saying AMD is perfect as it does lack single thread performance but everything else looks rather silly.
But hey i can ignore that part if I wished but i cannot ignore the rumor that intel may be killing off the Pentium G4560 and all I can say is what the flying bleep?
Yes though rumor has it (for now) Intel may be killing off their best budget processor the Pentium G4560
So in effort to boost the sales of the core i3 a processor line that lately has looked very silly recently when you could get a processor that can do just as well as it with the Pentium G4560 intel decides that no getting money from people who want to build a budget gaming PC using what is hands down one of the best processors for the money is not good enough?
What kind of bullbleep business decision is this crap?
Its like frigging GM being pissed off that Cadillac and Buick sales are down so the best thing to do is to kill Chevrolet!
Or Toyota thinking that the best way to sell a Lexus is to terminate the name Toyota!
What is Chrysler going to kill off Dodge, Jeep and bleep Fiats now?
If this rumor does turn out to be the truth then Intel seriously needs to find the first large body of water, tie a stone to their legs and jump in.
I mean really this is your answer to AMD intel, kill off a great budget processor so you can sell your bleep i3's that very soon will look rather bleep when Ryzen 3 comes out.
Good job intel, well done you pea brained money grabbing imbeciles.
If this really is your answer to AMD then you deserve to have your collective asses kicked by AMD.
Its one thing to make a rather questionable platform that is Kaby Lake X and its another to even think of killing off a processor that is making you money.
