Intel Quad Core or AMD Six Core

Im putting together a new build and have a question about AMD v Intel.

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor

Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor

this is a price/performance ratio im looking for. originally i was going with the intel, but for the price/performance would i be better of going with the AMD. i will be using the build for gaming, streaming, downloading, graphics design, browsing, and other things of that nature usually a few at the same time. thanks for the help.

  1. They similar performance/ price ratio , but the i5 750 is going to be better for gaming.Also if you're looking for NVIDIA multi-GPU setups in the future, you should go for Intel.

  2. if you are going with pc for gaming only get amd its good for your budget and amd processors works great with ati graphics card in dragon platform but if you are going with pc for gaming/video editing ,rendering/...ETC go with intel the i5 750 have 8 MB of cache but amd has 6 only and with the turbo boost technology will make your programs run faster for your needs
    good luck
  3. You work scenario gears you towards an AMD X6.. However, it also depends on which software you use for your graphical design works and what is your level of expertise with those softwares and your designs.. Both are excellent processors wherein the Intel solution is somewhat better for a gaming heavy setup.. Also, the Intel platform gives you the flexibility of choosing between SLI and crossfire which is missing on the AMD platform.. Take your pick..
  4. thanks for the help, makes my life a lot easier having tech sauvy people to help out with these questions.

    You have no idea what you are talking about.

    @ OP

    Here are some benchmarks. For gaming Intel wins every benchmark.

    I dont have to make your post appear useless. You are doing a great job yourself.
  8. Comparing the i5 750/760 and the Phenom II X6 1055T, they provide the same bang for the buck.Both systems will cost about the same.But for gaming i5 is the way to go, especially if you plan to use SLI.
