This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

Whether or not you like AMD or NVIDIA, you must admit....

There isn't a single benchmark that AMD wins at against Intel.


It wins in most fully multi-threaded benchmark at similar price points.

Especially important ones like 7-zip and Excel.

6xxx vs i3, 8xxx vs i5, etc. It actually beats i7 Intel processors in some tasks.

Unless you want to bring up that joke $800 processor. I'll help you make fun of that.

Never said it did. Intel is just better core for core. Of which, AMD's best processor has 4, with 4 integer clusters, and has very few things it's better at than an intel processor. Especially one with HT


Except nearly every fully multi-threaded application that exists while being way cheaper? What on earth does how the architecture is built have to do with performance in such tasks? Everyone knows about the single-threaded performance. Nothing truly CPU-intensive is single-threaded anymore.

Uh, are you sure you actually know what you are talking about?

Do you actually use your computer for things that use your full CPU power for that matter?

Forget it, I'm just going to leave. You can "win".


If you want to run a renderfarm, yeah, Bulldozer is okay, except that it'll eat more power, so you'll probably pay your initial savings back in a few years.
Also, most CPU-bound games are actually single or dual threaded, or very heavily reliant on one or two threads for most of the performance.

Because of the context of the thread means this about gaming, and seems to only be referencing performance, then it is correct. Intel is best.


I know. I said it in like the fourth post. Here it is again.
