I did my own research as well and *most* reviews and tech guys are saying AMD is a far better choice currently for multiple reasons. I'm not sure any of us here are pro gamers, so what are the benefits?Okay it's clear your very biased. And that's your prerogative to be.
OP I think it would be wise to seek out other people's views on other forums from people. Many times have I seen in this forums the same people telling folk to cancle their orders their making bad mistakes. It's their view "valid or not" (that's up to the op to figure out) but by the love of all things holy reach out to others than the same select folk on here.
Intel are also looking to switch to 7nm? And new motherboards? And they've headhunted several AMD staff? This is just what I've read during all this time at home.
