Intel E7600 / I3 540 vs AMD Phenom II X2 565 and X4 955? - Page 2

As of now, Intel and AMD are attacking different markets. AMD is delivering the best performance for $200 when it comes to multi-threaded apps like video encoding/rendering, 3D modeling, and scientific applications. Intel is delivering the best gaming and single-threaded performance at that price point.

And yes, all you are saying is OPINION and to say else is disingenuous. The only Sandy Bridge CPU that competes with AMD's at $200 is the 2500k, and that's without factoring in platform costs.

Another thing:


Don't know where you got this idea that the Core i3 540 is as fast as the Phenom II X4 955BE. It's not. Not even close.

The Phenom wins in 25/31 tests in Anandtech's CPU Bench. It won 4/4 in all the gaming tests, too.

As for over-clocking, the Phenom II X4 955BE (C3) on average achieves around 4.2GHz. The i3 540 achieves 4.5GHz. Not that big of a difference there.

To the OP:

You're better off getting either a used, refurbished, or new (as long as the price is reasonable; don't pay $300) Core 2 Quad Q9550. The difference in performance in comparison to your current E7600 will be huge. If you decide to go with Lynnfield/Clarkdale, prepare yourself for disappointment. The Core i7 (first series) only provide a difference of around 13% clock-for-clock against the C2Q 9xxx series and you'll have to sell your mobo and RAM.

Yes, I'm a fanboy when my girlfriend uses a Phenom II x3 720 and I just built a computer for a friend using the Athlon II x2 240. Before that I had an Athlon X2 4200+, X2 7750, and Phenom II x2 555. I'm also using video cards made by AMD... You caught me, look how much I despise AMD.

His point made exactly. He said AMD has the price point to compete, but clock for clock cannot compare.

AMD cpus can hang with rival Intel cpus in gaming and frames per second, but in other apps Intel has a lot of advantages. Also top of the line AMD cpu's are nowhere near top of the line Intel cpus, even in gaming.

Go take some reading comprehension classes.

It doesn't matter if AMD's top CPUs can't compete with Intel, since the price difference for both is huge.

As for Intel having advantages, it depends on the price point. Under $150, AMD's CPUs are better overall. Above that, Intel starts gaining the advantage.

Just saying. He conceded that point in his first thread. That AMD had great price points for their products. Kinda pointless to comeback and bring an issue up that was never an issue.

Pretty much. All my points were valid but some people just get butthurt. It's the Internet though, so nothing new.

The best part of what he said was:
