And that's a sad thing to say about a brand new generation of CPUs... This is what annoys me about this release.
I disagree. Comparable performance in the things that matter (at least to me, and most other people unless you're doing certain types of work...of course you're going to want 12 threads in those situations and you can probably afford a $1k CPU) at less than 1/3 the cost is impressive IMO.
Oh and I did I mention MUCH lower power draw?
