Why the hate against AMD?

Not really hate, but if you are going to spend $200 on a gaming CPU there's not much reason to go AMD over Intel.

It's not hate, it's optimization.

If you can afford Intel or are doing actual work on your PC then you get Intel. If you're budgeting and only plan to game then you get AMD. Nvidia vs AMD isn't quite as big a deal but it's kind of sort of similar at times.

AMD consistent continues to produce inferior CPUs for gaming and persistently refuses to do anything else. They've brought the quality of their graphics drivers up over the years, but their CPU side can't find their collective asses with both hands while a second person holding a flashlight in one hand and a webcam in the other while gives them instructions as they watch the cam feed.

I say that as someone who hasn't purchased an Intel CPU for a new PC or as an upgrade to an older PC since 1997. It's just the simple truth of the matter. AMD's CPUs do well for budget systems, especially "multimedia" budget systems and (very) low-end "gaming" rigs (read that as using APUs for the onboard GPU), and business machines, but for up and up gaming rigs they're an inferior product 95% of the time. The 5% of the time when AMD isn't the inferior CPU choice is usually when it's some reviewer playing a game you'll likely never play.

Most people don't do the research, but AMD is fine for it's price point.

I'm not saying that AMD will win the high end or even compete there like the old days, but for it's money, AMD's high end is worth it compared to a comparably priced Intel

People like to hate on AMD because it's easy to root for a winner.

It's hard to take the time to really investigate the performance of AMD and compare it against a comparable Intel and see the value.

In all honesty, I'll probably end up buying a AMD FX-8350 sometime in the near future. It's value to performance ratio is good enough that I find it a worthy upgrade.

TBH, 8350 isn't a very good deal. FX6300 is where AMD's value is at it's best. Anything else, and you may as well get an intel alternative.
It's kind of funny, though, that AMD tried to price the FX8 series as high as they did initially. $250 for something that gets trounced by $200 intel CPUs. It was so embarrassing that Intel actually raised their prices. :|

This.
If your pc is also part of your work, investing on Intel is the better value. I chose amd for budget and none work related.
