To say that AMD is confident in its third-generation Ryzen products would be an understatement. That’s especially true based on a recent statement made by Client Product Management Director Travis Kirsch, who suggests Intel can no longer compete.
“I don’t think there’s any reason people would buy an Intel processor after we [launch the Ryzen 3000 line].”
“So you’re going to hear a lot about gaming CPUs this week,” says Jon Carvill, VP of marketing, says. “They may or may not come from certain three letter acronyms. That said, here’s what I want to challenge you. I want to challenge you to challenge them. If they want this crown come beat us in in real world gaming, real world gaming should be the defining criteria that we use to assess the world’s best gaming CPU. I challenge you to challenge anyone that wants to compete for this crown to come meet us in real world gaming. That’s the measure that we’re going to stand by.”
As always, the truth will come from independent testing. The mudslinging will have to suffice for now.
