Adobe has figured out a way to give you control over depth in a photograph without having to do a lot of tedious selection tricks. Starting with this 3D lens that looks a bit like an insect's compound eye, it can shoot 19 images from slightly different angles.

It doesn't have the same track record for improved performance as Intel. In the past it's stumbled, barely keeping pace with its larger competitor. If competition is going to be sustained - if we're going to have long term competition that drives down prices and puts faster chips in our computers, than even a minor architecture change from AMD needs to have big and speedy results. The second generation of Ryzen does.
