Just got a Mesh 3.2 AMD and it's quick - I know that's a bit subjective but with 1 gb ram and a geoforce 5950 it runs everything I have at high res. Have seen a mate's 3.0 pentium and I will stick with AMD cost v performance.
Read lots of reviews and I don't think there is any advantage to Pentium. I used the money I saved ( over Intel )by upping the ram which i think = better performance choice.
The arguments are all a bit pointless because once you get up to the speed of the processors you are talking about unless you happen to be NASA trying to get the spaceship to Mars then the software to stretch your processor hasn't been written yet
After that it comes down to value for money and since AMD always seems to be £££'s cheaper than Intel then there really is no argument
The technical answer to Goblet is that it really depends which piece of software you are running. Intel processors do better with some and AMD better with others
And remember NASA got to the moon with the processing power of a Sinclair
