Yes, as they say about Intel...
In the past: Double the price for the same performance.
Now: Double the price for half the performance.

Plus at the time Intel was having problems[^] with that hack that made them turn some options off on their chip which made them slower and AMD doesn't have that issue.

Ryzen was much less $ for actually better performance.
I do a bit of Android Development (and along with that you need a special virtualization feature on the chip to run the Android emulator) and I was a bit worried about that but tested on my son's machine that had Ryzen. It is fantastic and amazing performance.
