Info

That's a really interesting point you raise.

I'm a huge AMD fan, but I don't think that they are better than Intel. I love Intel chips for optimizing cutting-edge gaming systems and perfecting high performance processing cores, and I love AMD for their innovation and engineering talent. There are excellent reasons to utilize one brand over the other in different circumstances:

Affordable gaming=AMD
Optimized gaming=Intel
HTPC=AMD
Workstation=Intel
Amateur CPU Experimentation=AMD
Professional Coding=Intel

You have to blame AMD fanboys for that $900+ price tag that accompanied the FX 9590, it was a really difficult release for AMD to package (since it was unscheduled). In house overclocking tests put the FX 9370 over the i7 4770k in Passmark and 3DMark bench's. Fans subsequently begged for a release. AMD took the 8350's and tried to outfit them the same way... (obviously not very successfully). Don't count AMD out though, I'm an Electrical Engineering student (Sophomore) and taking Physics right now (so I know what I'm talking about here) stability is not going to go past 6GHz, and technological advances will have to shift towards parallel computing and reduce the amount of energy, and inefficiency in a system. Watch the APU's slowly pull AMD out of obscurity. The speed in improvements over each generation of APU is astounding (around 20%) the room for improving the APU architecture is much greater than it is for the traditional cpu.

Benchmarks taken from BF3 singleplayer rather than MP.

Disappointing!
