I'm imminently about to purchase the gear for my first ever build. Had it all planned out, but this whole Intel scandal has got me just little bit spooked. I've read that it would appear the later gen Intels won't take that much of a hit, especially for gaming (which is what i'm building for)
I was intending on getting an i7 8700, BUT of curiosity, which AMD cpu (if any) is similar in performance?
