Hello, Community,

I have noticed that AMD processors will offer slightly better processing power for less money than Intel processors. People have told me that Intel processors are better and they perform better despite what the numbers say. Can someone explain this to me?

I don't know what you're looking at, but this should say it all.

First, an i5 2500K vs. a FX 8150: The 2500K wins all but the most highly threaded benches.

Second, an i7 3770K vs. a 8150: Except for the Civ V anomaly, the 3770K destroys the 8150.

The reason is that Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge are much faster and more efficient architectures than Bulldozer and much faster than the architecture of the Phenom II and Athlon II, as well.

Basically, you get what you pay for. AMD offers decent performance at a decent price, while Intel offers excellent performance at a premium price.

AMD covers the budget market and Intel covers the enthusiast market.
