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.

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

hahaha sigging this.

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.

Bwaaa haa haa haa.... good one!

I love analogies to explain why stuff works/don't work. LOL

Clock isn't everything. Each processor has sets of instructions. The less clocks per instruction, the more efficient it is per clock.

It is by executing these instructions that the processor is able to do work. In home desktops, generally, it's x86 or x86_64 instructions with the added SSE-SSE4, etc.

Intel's design is able to execute more instructions with the same clock cycles, so therefore, is faster than AMD at the same exact clock.

Plan and simple. Intel is like a 4 cylinder EFI engine with a turbo making 400hp and gets 40mpg(2500k). AMD is a V8 carburated 1950 style engine making 300hp and gets 15mpg(FX FX-8150). They both are prices within each other. You tell me which one is more efficient? In the world of CPU's more doesn't always mean better. A better architecture is what AMD needs. Get away from that "more is better" and get into per core efficiency and price/performance. IMO, They had it right with the Phenom II/Athlon II.

I agree. Performance is what matters, brand does not.
Lol that guy's funny. Maybe he's butthurt because he can't afford an Intel.

That's actually a valid statement. Intel has a lot more market share, they spend more on research and development = superior products and better performance per clock than AMD.
