What I love about it the most is that due-to competition from AMD, Intel will finally stop artificially castrating ... *ahem* ... segmenting its mid-range CPUs - selling pretty much the best they can produce at every price point. This should always be the case (and the end-goal for every enthusiast).Yep, prices will have to be adjusted. Action - reaction. Where will it end?
The final verdict of course depends on the price and clocks, but overall it's quite impressive what they have been able to squeeze out of the 14nm process. This should hold them over until Zen 3 arrives (probably in the end of Q3 2020), but by then the process limitation is really starting to manifest itself.
