More about : programming ASHISH65 a b à CPUs January 12, 2013 8:02:12 AM Intel i7 hands down.no amd cpus can beat i5 and i7.but it is better to get i5 instead of i7. DarkSable a b à CPUs January 12, 2013 8:23:03 AM 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.
