Comparing Intel with AMD

  Peter Lanky 19:53 14 Dec 2009

Has anyone found anything published on t'internet which compares each Intel processor with it's equivalent AMD so far as performance goes, and vice versa. There are far too many of each on the market for the casual PC buyer to cope with.

Yes, Tomshardware's CPU section click here for a start.

And their benchmark charts click here.

There's not much difference between the two, with Intel (especially the Core i7s) having the upperhand atm. G

In my opinion there are other things that make a far greater difference than AMD - Intel. Such as your mainboard, RAM speed, Hard Drive speed, PSU, Graphics card. The old contest between AMD & Intel in my opinion has faded away.

Get a balanced system & get the best you can afford, & I used to make all mine & others PC's but now you can't get the bits as cheap as a finished PC with a warranty now.
