Why is AMD better then Intel? - Page 4  

post #31 of 51
Intel, raw performance
AMD, price : performance

You can't go wrong with either.

Golden rule of comparing, you can't compare different generation platforms.

Yes sandybridge is the best platform today, but it wasn't yesterday.

AMD is "why should I pay for more when I can get similar performance for less money"
Intel is "I'll always pay more for the fastest"

Right to start off with before the trolling and Flame wars really KICK off what exactly are you looking to find out ?

Amd is better because
Cheaper cooler On die memory first,

Intel is better because
Higher processing speed hotter cores (water needed on top cpu's) oh and on die memory now instead of where they had to rely on the mobo controller (made them quite slow Initially)

you will need to look into everything about the two companies,

Overall costs per annum,
Over all temperatures, ( extra cooling costs )
Power management, ( how much it will cost to run the certain chips )
Clocks per second ( processing power )

you will need to equate all of the above in from both companies to find out who really does have the best CPU,

Also dont be bedazzled just because one Cpu can crunch more it does not by any means mean its better over an anual percentage with extra costs involved,

For every amd cpu on the market today,there is an intel cpu for the same money that is just as fast,or faster.

If we look objectivelly we may see that both Intel and AMD CPU-s suck ,compared to a GPU for example.
So lets just look at the CPU as we are looking at a peripheral ,because this is what it became.
So much hype for something like x86/x64 architecture ,that strugles to survive stimulated by Microsoft.This AMD vs Intel threads don t lead anywhere as the CPU-s are close to their end.It s like beating a dead horse to get orange juice.

Intel users you are the ones that push the CPU-s prices high in the sky.
Why? Because the fabrication process Intel uses should of brought prices under AMD offer at any model.
You are practically feeding Intel GREED instead of boycoting them by getting AMD ,so they start use the right REAL price.
I will never throw my money into Intel s big mouth , i ll throw something else into that greedy mouth.
