    That pretty much sums it up.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    I tend to chop and change with what I feel has the best to offer. My last computer which I got around 5 years back had an AMD processor. My current system has an I5 as I feel it is a more advanced and rock solid processor than what is currently on offer from AMD.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    Intel here.

    Not saying that AMD makes bad CPU's, far from it. But... if you want the best performance possible, you have to really go with Intel.

    I've used mainly Intel based computers, and will probably be choosing Intel for any future PC's. However, if you're on a budget, go AMD.

    - My first ever PC was AMD - An AMD Athlon 1200Mhz
    - Then I had a Pentium 4 M laptop - still got it knocking around somewhere.
    - Then I changed to another AMD based machine. Can't remember the actual processor, I think it was a AMD Turion or Sempron or something like that - That machine had to be my favourite computer I've used, the screen was just glorious. It's such a shame that it died.. (Found a piccy of it, nice to see it wasn't just my trackpad that did that! http://bimg1.mlstatic.com/notebook-c...070_092013.jpg)
    - Next two machines of mine are Intel - Core2Duo and now an i7 2630QM.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    I'd go for Intel. I'm not really sure how the AMD product line compares - I know what an I5 or I7 is, I don't really know what a comparable amd processor is.

    The AMD performance equivalent to the i7 series is the FX- series CPUs.

    The actual AMD equivalent to the i3/5/7 are the AMD APUs which use Radeon cores on die, whereas the FX-Series CPUs do not have on-die video. The APUs are geared toward a marriage of performance/power consumption and they just haven't caught up to Intel yet. The FX CPUs are pure CPUs that focus on processing power and not power consumption... (the FX-9590 has a TDP of 220W as compared to i7-4930 is only 130W. The A10-6800 APU (AMD's highest performing APU currently) is rated at 100W TDP.

    But the numbers show that Intel has a performance lead against both the AMD CPU and APU...

    PassMark - AMD A10-6800K APU - Price performance comparison

    Of course numbers are only a part of the story... Even though the APU is lacking performance in numbers, it is still a very capable processor, as are the FX 8 and 9 series CPUs.

    The AMD vs. Intel battle has been waging on since the beginning of the x86 and will continue on until x86 is obsolete. Unfortunately the decline in desktop and laptop purchases is going to affect development and I fear that the x86 CPU may be near the end of it's long life unless it can find itself a niche in the mobile market which is currently dominated by ARM.

    A bit of an interesting note... Both the Sony PlayStation and Microsoft XBOX in the new gen consoles opted for x86 (I'm not sure about PS, but the XBOX 360 was power-pc)... And they both chose the AMD APU...

    "Among the tales of sorrow and of ruin that come down to us from the darkness of those days there are yet some in which amid weeping there is joy and under the shadow of death light that endures."

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    Depends what you use it for:

    -Servers - Intel xeon...but the opteron is pretty good as well and it will save you some $$
    -Workstations - By far the best for the $$ is the Amd A10 6800 - Decent on-die radeon card (not great for gaming)
    -Gaming machine - AMD Black edition processors...More cache, they really do very well and you can get 8 cores pretty cheap
    -Most of the Intel i5 or i7 processors are good, but will cost you $
    -Intel is way better right now if power consumption is high on your list
    -AMD's tend to have better overclocking with active liquid or TEC cooling, my buddy has an AMD black running stable at 6.2ghz

    Come on, give me a hard one! I can fix anything ;-)
