I used to like AMD. You fanboys have ensured that I will not be buying from them, simply because I would never want to be lumped in with you.AMD needs a new, efficient, and good architecture and needs to stop polishing turds.
AMD has a fine design, ask intel they polished amd's turd back in the Athlon's days.
Why so much talk about consumption?? You guy's know it's negligible?? Right?
Dare I say I've saved enough money not switching mobo's every week to save that 2.00 more a month in my power bill? That's a whole lot of bull and psshhh to me.
Intel is on the leading edge in the desktop market right now based on unusable speed and power.. Kinda like having nothing bigger than a driveway to run that Bugatti in. I understand future proofing but as soon as the new tech hit's the market we all dive in. More so with intel guy's, this not being a dig.. Fact is, Intel has been able to offer more performance gain's with the chips they offer. But with no real use for it.
On the flipside AMD offers a lower cost alternative that will, other than in benches, provide matched visual performance.
As an amd guy I am not biased, I've though about Intel for some time. But the cost to flip the script is higher than all this power consumption talk period.. That is by far the weakest argument I've ever heard. I assume intel guy's won't be overclocking there CPU's or GPU's cause then they would be consuming more power.. NOBODY HERE SWITCHES 1K WORTH OF HARDWARE BASED ON POWER CONSUMPTION.
This is not a dig to the intel users. I respect and understand your choice, saying it's faster is probably enough reason. I promise my light's will stay on no matter what brand I choose.
