LOL @ something on PCGamesN's "The Ryzen response: Intel have forgotten how to deal with a genuinely competitive AMD" page.
Personally, I wish Intel would slow down the release cadence, to maybe one generation every 3 to 5 years or so, like they had over their first 25 years or so of X86.
Take the time on getting things right, having larger per-generation improvements, like what was seen with single-threaded IPC / performance with 8086 -> 286, 386 -> 486, 486 -> P5, etc.
The slowest CPU from a new generation should be faster than the fastest CPU from the previous generation.
Go back to Tick/Tock, but with a few changes.
Tick / Die-Shrink = only on mobile & servers, where power consumption is a priority.
Tock / Architecture = only on mainstream & HEDT, where performance is a priority.
Don't change sockets so often. I think a good suggestion would be the longest warranty length of high-end power supply lines, like from EVGA and Corsair, as a guide. Also if possible use the same socket across the entire stack, so if someone wants to start with like a Celeron or Atom, then upgrade to a Xeon E7 or Xeon Phi later, they can.
P.S. Didn't think this was quite worthy of a forum post. If I did, it would have gone in CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory.
