Intel for gaming?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if Intel P4s are good for gaming, like a 3.2GhZ P4. Im an AMD guy, but Intel "leads" when it comes to CPUs.

Help please!!!

I would say Intel is more for Media, AMD is better at gaming.

AMD CPUs are much better for gaming than intels.

AMD's have superior gaming performance, although the margin is fairly smalls, its still a noticable lead.

why do u say so?;
isnt intel's HT technology suppose to make games run like a charm?

yes, yes, yes, I know AMD is better for gaiming, but for example, I cant play BF2 because my Athlon is 1.4Ghz, but it has the preformance of a 1.7Ghz (XP 1700+) and the game doesnt reconize that! so if I get a Athlon 64 3500+ (2.2 ghz), ill have to upgrade in a year because the requirements for a future game is 2.5 Ghz. So, ya, the only reason I was looking at Intel was because of this.

Your information is incorrect. A game's specifications isn't dependent upon processor speed, it's merely a guide as to what you should have. If it suggest an Intel 1.7 ghz, your processor will work just as good. (slightly better,in fact)

Gaming performance is dependent on GPU more than anything else.

Go by AMD's model number, a 3500+ is roughly equavalent to an intel p4 at 3.5GHz.

Im talking about how you see Intel used more for things like Media like 3dmax, photoshop, etc... As with Mac why do you think Intel moved in with Mac, well the money but yeah lol. I mean you can use AMD for media but not as fast as a Intel would. Its just how it feels for me and how i look at the world of Intel CPU's.

Not as much as you would think. I mean yeah the GPU does alot of the work with gaming but with out the CPU what are you going to do, also where do you think the GPU will be running with the CPU and with a CPU (like AMD) you can see why you would want that CPU than some thing else game's run better in my eyes with AMD. I have used both AMD and Intel so you dont think im some AMD Fanboy.
