Why Intel Sucks at PC Games? - Page 4  

post #31 of 38
Firstly, I'd like to say that the generalization between AMD and Intel are pretty missleading. Not every Intel processor is a sub-level gamer, it's just the Netburst architecture was a mistake from the beginning. But seriously, my only real guff with Pentium 4s and Pentium Ds is how hot they run. I don't need or want a blast furnace in my computer and have to buy an aftermarket heatsink just to run it stock.

That would be incorrect and outdated information. The AMD dual cores are faster at everything and the single cores definitely hold their own. Here's benchmarks showing multitasking and encoding...

lol True, true, they run hot. I kinda like it in the winter though, turn mine and my gf's comp on and who needs a heater eh? Just kidding it's not that bad, I hear what your saying but I guess it depends on the situation. For me, it doesn't bother me in the slightest bit, guess it depends on where you have your computer and where you live (like in Texas )

on dual cores? More like on single.. And even then its not like theres a huge advantage anyways.. AMD dual cores absolutely dominate the Pentium D's.

intel does a better job of multitasking when it comes to single core processors and amd does a better job with dual core

What i've been trying to say since page 1 lol. Intel does not suck.
Honestly, Too many AMD fanboys out there, They'll see that AMD scored 100FPS and intel scored 95FPS, they'll bust their left nut and start yelling how the Intel got pawned.
Another factor is this, how biased are these benchmarkers? I mean There was some bechmarking a while back, ill try to find the link. They did like 7 or 8 benchmarks and in the end AMD won 100-0. I mean COMEON, 100-0..... (they took that off afterwards). Talk about misleading, no wonder AMD fanboys tend to think Intel sucks.

I think this discussion has just about run its course. I'm going to close it down while people are still being nice and rational and before it degrades into an Intel vs. AMD debate.

Many good points have been made here. Hopefully folks will remember that having an edge does not equate to the other being horrible.
