We cannot ignore the leap in performance and technology that AMD has made with Ryzen from its first generation to today. A plan drawn with great precision that has brought with effort and determination a much more competitive market where his great rival has been asleep in his glee for years and now it is hard for him to fight. For this reason, what this type of offer achieves is to tighten the market even more and do direct damage to Intel so that it can compete in a section where it is not used: in price.
A real price war that benefits us all
In a pleasant conversation with AMD’s PR manager and in the middle of a dinner, I had the opportunity to exchange views on the current and future CPU market, how it works, and especially the company’s strategy for the sector and its rival. Intel. Although I am not going to reveal anything of that conversation as such (obviously), I did learn a lot and therefore these movements are expected from my current perspective.
What I am trying to express is that these offers have been fully prepared for months, they have a hard work behind them, many numbers thrown over them, hours of work and evaluation and of course they respond to a commercial strategy to monopolize sales and achieve both profits and market share .
Each company has its movements, so what we have to do is enjoy them, since it is a totally real war, no pacts under the table or similar, every penny counts, so having said that, we are going to have a mess.
