We would get really nice affordable laptops with 8 cores 65W desktop Zen lol.AMD sells the FX-8350 for $150. Who loses most if AMD has to sell the 1700X at $150?
AMD has next to nothing to lose. From PC/APU they have some 1 billion per year revenue while Intel has 30+..
No matter what, AMD can only gain from this while Intel can only lose and lose a lot if AMD is competitive.
