My friend tells me that AMD runs graphic intensive application better than Intel, however I question his judgement after looking at a few benchmark tests. In general, which is better for say, Counter-Strike or Tribes 2 or something like that.
in my opinion for those games AMD because they wont need all the power they can get if you have a decent video card so you can get a slower proc and not notice, so go for the cheaper and get an AMD, now for having simply the fastest machine you would probably go for an Intel () unless you dont have lots of money to blow, in that case you would go with a good OCing AMD
intel runs the best benchmarks known to man.
honestly they do,but we all have learned in oc101 "benchmarks mean squat."
amd's are more fun and challenging to oc."my opinion"
in the end it doesnt matter who is faster as they are almost completly differant.and if amd could find a way to prove they are faster i think us amd guys would be bragging about it.
kinda like saying which is faster a ferrari or a porche?
the red one is always faster on a windy day.but brakes better if the sun is at high noon.but rest assured both will cost you out the *** for speed.same thing here
I'm going back to the IT DOESN'T MATTER viewpoint. Hardware has advanced so much in the past 2 years or so that software hasn't had a chance to catch up with it yet. The only exceptions would be things like image rendering or audio encoding. With gaming, I would venture to say there would be no difference, or if there were, very minimal.
