Get the answer Zephids May 15, 2012 10:43:46 PM At this current generation, Intel has been performing better and isn't overly expensive. An i5 2500k will run you about $200 and is well worth the money compared to it's competitor at AMD. Other thoughts: I'd love to see AMD giving Intel a run for it's money but sadly it's behind currently. Score 0 xXmjzXx May 15, 2012 10:50:03 PM you wanna go with intel as of right now.

The best way to explain the answer to this is simply that the Intel processors are much more efficient per clock cycle than the AMD chips. Meaning Intel gets more done per MHz compared to AMD.
