everyone says that intel is faster than AMD processors, but why? i look at the specs and cant see why there is such a difference in price and performance, why ?

There are lots of benchmarks comparison that proves Intel is faster (not to mention power efficiency). When you get a chance, there is a benchmark section in this forum.

Architectural differences.

Inside the little silver chip are these little hamsters that build cities. Some hamsters use strong pillars yet some hamsters use crappy pillars-- The difference between Intel and AMD.

But in reality it IS differences in architecture. See some benchmarks .

You should read up some on this stuff. There is a lot more to consider than cores and clock speeds.

Why is a Ferrari faster than Yugo? According to the specs, they both have 4 wheels and an engine.

To understand the differences, you have to look beyond the high-level specs.


For example, a 1.2GHz ARM CPU is still beaten by a 0.8 GHz Sandy Bridge CPU in performance.

Mostly memory management. Intel is far superior.

Money. Lot's and lot's of money.

Not just much, much higher memory bandwidth, but the massively faster caches, lower latencies, much shorter pipelines, etc.

Like everyone else is saying, the cpus are made differently, thats why. Those hamsters might have something to do with it as well though tongue.gif
