Hey guys,

I know this is a very un-accurate question because people will wonder, which processors to compare. So let me give you guidelines.

-Which company makes longer lasting processors

-Which company has the best processor

-Who has better prices

-Which company makes better heat sinks for their processors

Thats about it. Try not to be Biased about it. To explain the reason for wanting to know this would take too long. So again don't say AMD just because you own one and what you have is the best. Tell the truth and if you don't know what your talking about, don't say anything please.

Thank you.

Don't do it! Just don't!

This is where you are gonna end up with this.

Its really arbitrary. Average life for a processor is about 5 years (?), but you'll only be using it for 3~4 years at most, before moving on to the new technology. However, at this rate, I would say Intel's processor (Core uArch) is longer lasting, since their processors run cooler, with less power.
Quote:

-Which company has the best processor

Intel has the undisputed performance crown at the moment. We'll see more once AMD's K10 reveals.

Quote:

-Who has better prices

At the lower end, AMD's pricings are pretty competitive. However, Intel's price drop just recently may offset that advantage. At the higher end, Intel owns that part of the segment.

-Which company makes better heat sinks for their processors

I really don't know about this one. I would say Intel's better, because currently Intel's stock HSF were designed to accomondate Pentium 4, which runs considerably hotter than Athlon X2s. Also, with Intel's stock HSF, you'll be able to overclock Core 2 by a decent margin, before you have to switch to higher end HSF.



Thank you.[/quote]

Dude, this has been attempted many times before. There is a reason you don't see threads like this, you know.

About 75% of the market buys Intel for some reason, but Baron Matrix likes AMD processors. So it is a tie.

Hey, Spiderman 3 comes out in a few weeks.


I disagree and you are obviously an AMD fanboy. Why don't you just look at the facts and stop spewing FUD. :x

It's a tossup now, AMD use to have the good overclockers and there for the processors with the longer lasting potential, but now Intel has a very good line of overclockers. AMD is usually better about making several lines that work with the same slot, so....

Quote:

-Which company has the best processor

Right now Intel, better high end chips with great Ocing potential.

Quote:

-Who has better prices

AMD better mid and low range CPU prices.

From experaince and from issues I have read AMD. the AMD Opti I got, I had no heat problems, but with my current system (see sig) I had to get a better cooler because the temps were reaching 80C to 83C at stock settings under full load.

Ya dingus! You missed the mark with that comment. Jack currently uses Intel equipment (can't remember if it is dual or quad core). You opened yourself up to a flame war with this thread..Go away!

oh really?
the facts you present are nothing more than biased statement from a diehard Intel fanboy.

why don't you get a life too.... nerd boy :p  :p

AMD, then Intel, then AMD, then Intel, then AMD, then Intel . . . .

In building my Video Editing Systems I've had to use intel because of incompatibility of AMD chipsets with lots of hardware. For general-purpose use I just want fast, cheap, and couldn’t care less about brand. Upgrade ability is a bonus but it always seems that Sockets and\or Ram specs have changed by the time there is a worthwhile upgrade available in my price range.

I like what Intel has done in the last year. Before C2D I think both companies were overpriced on the high end and slow to produce performance-enhancing processors. Hopefully AMD will have a good answer and competition will continue at a good pace.

Since this is the internet, and the worst thing that can happen is I get flamed by some 30-something living in his mother's basement, I'm going to say AMD.

I have not voted in this poll because I believe they both deserve their merits. The tables are turning all the time to who has the faster processor. I have mostly used AMD processors in my desktops and I am currently using a overclocked 4400+. My performance is still good, so I am not planning any CPU upgrade any time soon. If I was in the market for a CPU now it would be a Core 2 Duo.
In the Mobile laptop sector I do believe Intel make great CPU's. My current Core Duo offers nice performance and is apparently power efficient, which is important where battery life is concerned.

Shouldn't that read "several slots for the same line" :p 

Sorry but 754/939/940/AM2/1207. :p 
April 29, 2007 12:26:13 AM

just look at the intel p1 through p3 and tell me that it didn't get confusing. AMD cept using the same slot for most of that time. 940 is a server line, and 939 and AM2 take about the same thing so far.

wtf whats up with u? u also made a dumb thread in the games forum today.. stop it
April 29, 2007 1:31:48 AM

wow, had to see it to believe it. Seriously, i think you should go for an IBM Aptiva p2 300mhz or so. pretty awesome stuff. has like 131072 bytes of memory. Smells like Koweit is in flames!!!

Based on my experience - none of the above. I vote for Zilog. We have 20 year old Z-80s still working in a military environment.

I still have an old Intel P233 running at 300 MHz. And last December, while cleaning out my junk bin, I dumped a functioning 486 motherboard.

Semiconductors pretty much become technologically obsolete before they die of old age.

VIA, of course. I'm now a 100% VIA fanboy!!! :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol: 

VIA is working on secret upgrades to it's S3 Chrome series of GPUs and it's C7 line of CPUs. Once this combination is unleashed VIA will quickly take market share from AMD and Intel and both will BK by Q2'08! :lol:
