Talking Intel vs AMD

Well, just decided to post a little debate on which you prefer.

Intel or AMD?

I choose Intel

Intel, personally. Never really done mcuh in AMD. Intel is the standard and I'm not very picky about CPUs.

It's me, Felix.

well i va 2 amd computers, one 1.4GHz, one 1.51GHz, and an intel one, 2.8GHz, both amd computers are much faster, all have about 1gb of ram, all have 80Gb HDDs with about 30% used... all amd computers i have used are much faster... although intel is good for muti tasking

I have no preference. I started with Intels, but I'm running an AMD right now.

Actually I use to be an Intel person. I didn't see why anyone would want an AMD instead (even though the computer I had was an AMD). Then I started doing research. Current Intels over heat quite badly without a special case and a tube. For instance, check this oddity out (clicky). AMDs are actually severely under-clocked to ensure they will not over heat - and if you have proper cooling, you can over clock them like a beast! Intels use a lot of "steps" for each cycle of processing, so that's why they run at higher clocked speeds (3.0 GHz+). AMDs use far less of these "steps" so they have to do more with each one - this means they can't run at that high of a speed. This also means that they can perform just as well as (and usually better than) an Intel while running at a much lower speed. AMD shows it's speeds using a thousands number (like 2400+, 2800+, 3200+) - these numbers are what GHz they can perform like times 1000. So a 2400+ would run as well as a 2.4GHz Intel or better (that's what the + means). Essentially, this means that a 3200+ AMD that runs at 2.2GHz would would run much better than a 2.2GHz Intel (in fact, much better than a 3.0-3.2GHz). The max that I've seen Intel go is 3.6GHz, while AMD processors (the new FX kind) can match an amazing 6.0GHz (the new FX-60 with 64bit compatibility[clicky]).

Anyway, that's just a little bit information. That's why, personally, as a computer technician, I'm completely for AMD processors.

yea i have to agree, mine is an intel and its very hot.
my other computer is an AMD, quite fast and not nearly as hot
currently the best processor is the AMD FX-60, and i want it!

anyway just my opinion....

Your almost right kiros, a P4 currently holds the OC record at some 7ghz using a triple cascade phase change cooling keeping it in the -100F's.

It really depends on which processor you talk about. I had a P4 1.8GHz, and a Celeron 2.2GHz. The P4 would beat the crap out of the Celeron everytime. Actually, I traded someone the Celeron for the P4.

I bought my Laptop in April 2005, which is a AMD 64 3400+ (2.2Ghz) and it's really nice. The only problem is that I couldn't compare it with my P4 very well because of the HDD speed differences (Desktop 7200RPM, laptop 4200).

I bought a different Desktop last october, which I love. It's a AMD 64 X2 3800+ (2.0Ghz) and it kicks the crap out of any computer I've ever used. Last I checked, it's also cheaper then the Intel's closest Dual Core match. The X2 even runs really cool, usually in the mid 30's (celcius) with the stock cooler.

All my main computers are AMD's now, the only one I have that isn't is my server, which I'm not using at all right now, but it's my old P4.

I wouldn't buy another intel for my next computer. My AMD's have been too nice for that.

Over clocking maybe (can you give a link perhaps?)... But AMDs come under clocked from the start, so just getting the FX-60 up to a normal speed would probably put the overall performance over 7GHz. Over volting and over clocking the FX-60 to it's max (understandably), then I'm sure that the AMD would perhaps over-shoot a theortical 10GHz processor!

By the way, I'd just like to note that for that amazing 7GHz, that was the absolute highest a P4 could over clock to. The AMD FX-60 performs as a 6.0GHz, making it slightly less powerful while stock (severly under) clocked.

Intel has nothing on AMD

Dam that AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 is nice, But Dam $1200.00 bucks, thats is is like $300 bucks over the buget I plan to have for my entire next comp. O well i gusse exceptional speed is going to have to wait.

Yes, but just wait a couple years and the price will probably be less than half that

I like how you gave your RAM speed when your talking about processors.

Heh, that is a bit funny... Anyway, it's not a rare mistake...

But it's still obvious that AMD rules

I'm going out to buy a P4 tomorrow (well, today technically as its 1:30AM ) to replace my crappy old Celeron. I just hope I dont break it like I did the last CPU I bought. I'll have to put anti-static bags over my hands when fiddling around inside the machine.

It's me, Felix.
