    Intel vs AMD... A poll

    For nearly as long as I can remember, there have been two main players in the x86 processor industry. Intel, the proprietors of the x86 architecture (first released in 1978 with the Intel 8086) and AMD, which started out in the x86 industry as a second-source manufacturer under contract with Intel until it released the am386 in 1991.

    I am interested to see everyones opinion as to which their preferred processor manufacturer is. Please feel free to add an explaination to your vote!

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    You know, it really depends on what it is used for...

    Basic desktop/light-moderate gaming I would go with AMD hands down

    Servers/High end gaming/video editing etc and all laptops I would go with intel...

    I rock an AMD based desktop and Intel laptop...
    With Bulldozer taking a huge flop and the new generation I processors from intel improving I will side with them for now...

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    I became an AMD follower back in the late 90s/early 00s starting with the Thunderbird core Athlon. Previous to my first T-bird I had only used Intel x86 CPUs... Just before my first purchase of an AMD "Coppermine" PIII Celeron. Of course, supporting a family on one income didn't mix well with my thirst for technology, so I had been extending the life of each platform for as long as humanly possible! The performance and price of AMD processors have kept me purchasing them for my PCs since...

    My PCs.
    Intel 386 (I was 15 my first 'toy')
    Intel Pentium Pro (Hand-me-down from my father in '99 shortly after my son was born)
    --This system was frankensteined by me over the course of the next 3 years and evolved into my first AMD based PC
    --Pentium Pro - Pentium 2 - PIII Celeron (O.C.'d to near 900MHz) -AMD T-Bird 1.1GHz
    AthlonXP 1800+ (lost it to an ex-girlfriend)
    AthlonXP 2100+ (lost it to an ex-girlfriend... long story)
    Athlon64 3200+ (Built for my wife early in our relationship... became my default computer for a time)
    Phenom x4 9550
    PhenomII x2 555BE (now currently my wife's computer, replaced the x64 3200+)
    PhenomII 1100T x6 - My current rig.

    I will give you that AMD owns low-mid end gaming machines... the x4 deneb processor is just excellent for the price!

    Why?

    I can see gaming because most gamers want high benchmark scores... And right now, Intel is the king of the benchmark... I put little faith in most benchmark scores. Don't get me wrong... The i5 and i7 CPUs are nice... and great performers... but (IMHO) are not worth the added cost!

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    Mostly benchmarks... the 2500k is just an excellent gaming CPU...

    Bang for your buck AMD will always take the cake... but if you have the luxury of extra cash or want that little bit of an edge you cannot really get it staying AMD.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    I will give you that. Intel has quite a few advantages over AMD right now in processing power and performance, but you do have to pay for it.

    The 2500k is a nice little processor for sure, I would not be adverse to using it for any build... Especially now that the prices are dropping due to the release of Ivy Bridge.

    Apple's decision to switch to Intel from PowerPC has given Intel a huge revenue advantage and revenue means more money to throw into R&D, tooling, and so forth.

    AMD's "Ace up the sleeve" is it's apsorption and integration of ATI and it's GPU technology. I have a feeling that we are going to see marked improvements in power consumption and performance in the near future with AMD... The sheer linear processing power of current GPUs is tremendous. By having a GPU that can perform GPU Computing on-die... It isn't going to happen with Trinity (although Trinity's integrated HD7xxx graphics will soundly whoop Intel's integrated graphics). I plan on basing my next HTPC/Media Center PC on Trinity...

    Either way... This is a poll based on preference (not performance), and as of right now... I still prefer AMD to Intel (although, I wouldn't mind having an i7)

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    I personally am an Intel fan but I think that AMD is the best bet if you're looking for a cheaper option. They still make decent CPUs but their top of the range products can barely compete with Intel.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    AMD for budget machines, Intel for performance.
    Just another thought on low end business machines it's hard to beat(cost wise) a G series dual core Pentium on a H61 matx board right now.
    As for Laptops, Intel lower wattage and less heat are the reasons.

    have to agree the posts here.
    amd has a great product for what most people need. would not hesitate to recommend.
    while i've seen some amd servers they're for less stressed environments.

    i clicked intel as it may be the better processor, if that was the question.

    The question is "Preferred" not "better" Temmu... There is no question that intel has the more powerful CPU right now.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    When I "upgraded" and purchased a new Windows 95 computer, the local tech who built the PC for me recommended AMD. It stood me well so when I had him build the next machine with Windows XP, I stayed with AMD.

    Although I have a Windows 7 64-bit laptop with an Intel processor, my favorite is still the 5 year, 5 day-old Windows Vista laptop, with AMD processor, described at The "WOW" Finally Arrived At My Door!.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    In the time frame that was true, the tables turned when Intel came out with the Core 2 Duo and AMD flubbed the Phenom I, they still haven't recovered fully. For the price they are decent CPU's work well it's just that Intel always seems to have 4 or 5 CPU's above the fastest AMD CPU now and controls the pricing while AMD is forced to discount.

    That says it all. In 2002 or so AMD was the champ in performance and price I believe. I went from a Pentium IV to an AMD Athlon 64 3700+ and the performance increase was mind boggling. I recently went from an AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 GHz to an Intel i5-2550K and I was more boggled!
    An AMD CPU will make a PC run but if one wants it to run well go with Intel. I also currently have a backup rig with a Phenom II X 6 1055T, 2.8GHz and the 965 too which the wife uses.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    I just see way too many BSODs involving ATI, which is owned by AMD.

    Ratio of ATI video v. Intel BSODs --- probably 1,000:1

    Also, IMO, NOTHING beats Intel wifi (laptops)

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    There is no doubt that Intel is the performance leader in the current market, and that is not about to change any time soon.

    But, let's take a look at pricing... According to benchmarks, these two processors are nearly identical...

    AMD Zambezi FX 8120 - $169.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103961

    Of course, it doesn't stop there... Intel CPUs operate the best on Intel chipsets, which also demand a premium...

    @John... I don't know about the Intel Wireless chips... But IMHO, Atheros makes some of the nicest (wifi) chipsets out there at the moment.

    As for laptops... Intel is the only real choice due to low-power consumption and thermal efficiency... I will give you that.

    Intel Sandy Bridge i5 2550k - $242.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115230

    From a performance standpoint Intel has a distinct advantage... But their prices are a bit hard to chew... $70 more for (essentialy) the same performance.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    The problem I have w/ Atheros - lack of driver updates.

    Both NVIDIA & Intel released driver updates for video/wifi in this ~4 year old laptop a few days ago.

    Re: Intel vs AMD... A poll

    I'm not a fanboy for either side, but Intel has much better performance than AMD right now. If you want a good CPU with pretty good results, AMD will do it. But if you are looking for the best performance from your computer, it's Intel. As far as price, AMD is cheaper but I think they had to become the cheaper alternative to survive.
