Intel vs AMD: Which Would Zombot Use for Brains?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 38 comments

Don't worry, your ARM-based mobile device will be safe from the brain-eating zombots.

While Judgement Day came and went on August 29, 1997 and there was no uprising of the machines, that doesn't mean that it might not still happen. If it's not just sentient computers that we're worried about, there could always be a zombie apocalypse. While I feel fairly well armed to deal with zombies after watching Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead and playing lots of Dead Rising, I'm not sure what I would do in a Zombot Apocalypse.

Thankfully, it seems that Zombots might not know what to do either – at least not without consulting our latest CPU benchmarks.

    Judging from the look on Zombat's face, I would say he is trying to use both at the same time.

    If he is going to steel it or if he's a rich zombot then I would say the Intel Core i7 980X if he isn't rich then I'd go with the 955 Black and overclock if I was him.

    if going for a brain you would think people would go for quality and not a cheap one so Intel would be the safe bet

    yea we know intel is King.
    but Amd is flying ahead in chip sets.
    I like intel but the new i-5 with video on chip. NO THANKS.
    32nm without video. Than it will be good.

    He would use a Via embedded processor, because battery technology still hasn't caught up with power demands, and he would need to use as little as possible.

    wow. a picture more than a thousand word. so it's it means no matter which brand does the zombie choose. it will still be as Intelligence as a zombie?. keep it up. intel and amd. we need more Intelligence chip beside just how fast it can process 0001010. a human would choose a cheaper/faster one. this subject is too hard for the zombie.

    This is before he has a brain, so he would buy a *insert flame*

    There is no need to specify "No hitting below the belt...", fanboys have nothing down there anyway! lol

    That Zombot looks like he is a bit confused and this article is supposedly set in 1997, so he's probably running an original Socket 4 P5 "FDIV bug" Pentium CPU. Unless he wants to upgrade his motherboard, he should get a P54 Pentium 133 OverDrive.
