Crap, let's make it a poll now:

Is AMD back? Please boost

For me what matters is the GPGPU scene and the AMD vs Nvidia rivalry. High performance computing, which is nearing its cpu performance limits, has now started to move towards gpus. Also, thanks to demands from AI research. I hate to say this but CUDA seems to supported by most frameworks and applications. OpenCL needs more love as of now.

@ashwinvis For the GPU scene, I think it's still too soon to tell whether AMD will come out on top. I think this is a much closer battle, though NVIDIA is fumbling a bit with their explanation/benefit of ray tracing as well as their predatory behaviour with prebuilders and their lack shortage of GPUs in the past (though that second part has lessened quite a bit since cryptocurrency mining has slowed down)
