There a more than a few of us that have overclocked AMD chips in the past that are currently using Intel.
Heck, I would wager a majority of Core2 users came directly from A64
. AMD gouged us as long as they could with the ridiculous X2 prices
Some perspective and history of the industry goes a long way in understanding why people went Intel in the first place
This is what makes me laugh when people talk about Intel being 'so expensive' - AMD dual cores were exorbitantly expensive at the peak of the A64. So much that users were forced to tray procs (all hail trays lol).
I don't remember once an argument being made that Intel was 'too easy' or not sporting, or whatever other analogy you want to introduce. Core2 frankly, was fun to overclock
. Key word is fun. It was cheaper than AMD and better performing to boot
. Overclocking is all about experience, diligence, and building of knowledge. More experience is always better. And frankly, if you are denying yourself of building the breadth of your experience because of sheer allegiance, you are doing yourself a disservice.
