Intel feels the pressure

For once,they are cooked.But if their prices are like now,feel free to imagine.

Rushing a platform because they're afraid of the competition, huh? It just makes me want to buy the product that wasn't rushed to release.

They probably don't feel rushed by AMD at all, and AMD did rush Ryzen, FYI

They need to drastically lower their enthusiast platform prices though; they are far north of absurd already currently. For me it's the sole reason to stay well away from this product line.

Ryzen wasn't rushed, however they did not give the motherboard manufacturers enough time, but then again most of them didn't think it would be a success, so both are at fault. I do see why people think it was though. AMD should definitely have helped them way in advance, and the companies should have taken it seriously

If Intel release these chips, the 1800x will get price drop, so an 8/16t CPU for even cheaper that'll still likely beat Intel in multi-threaded tasks, or match it.

Maybe it depends on how you look at it: they released a new microcode shortly after, which already had been in the works. Which to me makes its launch seem rushed. It doesn't matter though.

Indeed sir, spot on! Intel needs a reality check when it comes to their chip and chipset pricing - and they need to release high clocked 6/12 (at least) parts to their mainstream chipsets. Personally I've had enough of 4/8 core parts and it is therefor my hope that coffee lake indeed is more than an exclusive mobile part. *slaps head in anticipation of it needing a new socket, sigh*

It does depend I guess.
But that doesn't make sense to me. Intel release micro codes after a launch as well?? I don't think that in particular is a good indicator of rushness

Fair enough. May depend on the time frame although I admit that I don't know that of Intel. I do think it would have benefitted AMD to have waited for a spell.

Yes it would have. They should have given the companies more time. Whether it was giving them earlier access or delaying the launch.
I do however think Intel are responding earlier than normal since Ryzen surprised everybody.

To me this is just another indicator that Intel are worried as I don't think they thought Ryzen would be this good either and I think it's shaken them a little and let hope their pricing is a little more realistic although I won't hold my breath
