    Sana di pumalo ng 11K yung local price ng 1500X (U.S. $189 == ~PHP 9500) kasi ang layo nung local prices nung Ryzen 7 compared sa SRP ng newegg di tulad sa Intel dikit yung local and international price. Balak ko sana palitan yung curren system ko, hinihintay ko nalang talaga yung quad-core w/ smt variants ng Ryzen next month.
