Many have been negative about the Ryzen launch, focusing merely on gaming performance rather than the beastly price to performance ratio when it comes to productivity. Some of these same people praised Intel’s $1000 X99 parts when they too do not compete well with the far cheaper Kaby Lake parts. The 1800X is not the gaming killer, it’s the X99 killer. Fanboys need to understand that competition is good and spin is bad.
