and maybe, perhaps the Ryzen chips actually are worth a damn compared to the i5's of the world (or better). But getting me to actually spend my money on them.. it's so hard when I've been burned so many times by AMD chips. Am I just unlucky and only end up buying the turd AMD chips?
The new Ryzen chips are definitely worth a damn. They are the real deal. I have a Ryzen 5 3600 and its a beast, and that it's only $180 is huge too.
We bought a burner laptop a few years back with one of the AMD A-Series chips and it was for sure a total piece of shit. Don't hold that against them though, I bet if you bought a new laptop with a Celeron chip you'd be very disappointed, too.
