  1. When Ryzen launched, AMD is no longer AMD. They failed to release a $350-500 12-core CPU to the masses. Take a look back, AMD release a higher core count for every new architecture.

    AMD Athlon X2 -> AMD Phenom X4 -> AMD Phenom II X6 -> FX 8150.

    They were all within that $350-500, and increased in core count.

  2. You are absolutely right Linus, I was not surprised by that segue into the sponsor. Not one bit. I believe my ears have become so Finley tuned to your voice over the years that they just know . It's quite amazing

  3. I still remember lusting at all the pc components the past years. Thank you for the trip down the memory lane. It's just sad that I am now dead inside and I don't enjoy anything anymore. Especially the games. 🙁

  4. The 2011 build was almost exactly the same as mine. I had 16GB of RAM though. And I played on it all the way up until just a few months ago with only an upgrade in the middle to a GTX 980 🙂
