We all know that AMD's mid-range Ryzen 5 family of processors have been one of the best bang for buck CPUs released in quite a while, but according to a new survey that 3DCenter ran - AMD's Ryzen 5 processors are the best CPU product launch since they first started doing these surveys... all the way back in 2010.

The survey saw 83.9% of people having a "positive" view on Ryzen 5, while 9.4% were "indifferent" and just 6.7% thought negatively of Ryzen 5. Personally, I think Ryzen 5 is one of the best launches in years, mainly from a cores/thread value per dollar perspective. Intel will offer 4C/4T or 4C/8T for the same cost as AMD's new Ryzen 5 chips which provide 6C/12T for the same cost.
