Intel has recently faced some criticism for their benchmarks on the new 9900K processor. This i9 processor, targets high-end gaming and productivity desktops and is competing with Ryzen, now that Intel finally increased the core count to 8.
We will soon see at least one new product from AMD. According to rumours, this will be a workstation GPU whose performance will indicate the performance of the other more consumer oriented “gaming” GPUs.
AMD has released some interesting CPUs and continues with the second generation of the Ryzen processors. Although it was a bit underwhelming seeing that the performance didn't change much. We are still expecting a second design of the Zen architecture but this will probably come later in 2019.
