Why would someone choose Intel over AMD?
I just looked at the computer site 'http://www.newegg.com' and for the Intel latest generation i5 processor (Ivy Bridge) it is $230. This is 3.4GHz, and quad core.
Now, on the other hand, on the same site, AMD's 3.6GHz EIGHT CORE processor is currently $190, and usually $200. This processor won the award for the most clocked processor, at 8.42GHz.
So, why would someone buy the Intel processor, over the AMD processor? I can't understand how AMD doesn't own the majority of the market share in processors. Help?
Intel promotes themselves and has a stronger brand name then AMD. I am running on AMD that I built myself because of the cost. Intel is said to run better and for awhile it was the only processor to have 32nm technology. Other then that the 3.6ghz 8 core AMD is much better then the i5. It really is just the name brand.
Intel is to Apple, as AMD is to PC. Thats the best way I can say it, you overpay for intel and you overpay for apple.
I have built computers for the past ten years and found that AMD parts had a vastly higher failure rate during the mid 2000's, it seems to be more evened out. Even now I'm still very wary of using anything from them though.
