    The evolution of processing power is slowing down. Chances are, if you bought an high end PC 6 years ago, you still have a perfectly capable machine for today's games and software. Sandy bridge was a big step in computing performance and thanks to AMD ryzen, we are now one step ahead of it.

    Yep!

    They got to 4.5-ish GHz clock speed and Moore's Law went on vacation.

    I don't know about you guys but I don't need 8+ cores! How about ditch the bazillion cores and just give us a cool-running, 5GHz, economical processor? I guess after a decade that's asking for too much! lol

    My i7 920 Bloomfield cpu is still running good, I let the grandkids use it and they have no problems with it. It does have a Samsung 840 evo ssd. Although the board only has sata 3 ports
