quality? theres little difference. both have a very low fail rate on there doa cpu's. both companies say there cpu's will last an average of 10 years but i personally have an intel 80286 cpu thats over 25 years old and still works... in a compaq portable 2.

there is little real info available but its somewhere near 1% for both. silicone is a very stable medium and if looked after should last indefinitely. regardless of manufacturer.

HEXiT pretty much nailed it. There's very little, if any, difference in actual build quality.

If OP meant "quality" as in performance/watt/buck, then Intel would be the one with the best deal at nearly every price point most purposes.

Yes, but I wasn't about to start a flame war, lol. It will happen if anyone who cares to start it is paying attention...

Manufacturing quality? It is a tossup. What little statistics there are indicate little difference between the two.

Performance is a different matter.

Anymore? Intel. The FX series chips kinda suck. if you want to judge performance/dollar you have to look at the series of chips, Intel has been steadily pulling ahead over the past few years.

To ask who makes a better quality cpu misses the point. What matters is what you need your computer to do for you. Each company has its pros and cons. ATM Intel's chips are performing better but in the long term that can't necessarily be maintained.
