Intel i7 hands down.no amd cpus can beat i5 and i7.but it is better to get i5 instead of i7.

Depends on the program you're coding in, and whether it makes use of hyperthreading or not.

If it can use hyperthreading and 8 logical cores, get the i7.

If it can't use hyperthreading, but can use 8 logical cores, get the AMD.

If it can't use hyperthreading and can only use 4 or fewer cores, get the i5.
