Intel Vs AMD: What's Your Opinion?

Intel vs AMD: The two giant companies known as computer micro processor(chipset) makers are thriving greatly thru pc manufacturers. At least every Harry and Tom in Nigeria is  desiring owning a laptop or a desktop pc among the many that already own one or more. What is your own opinion about Intel and AMD, their market values, and consumers respectively?

both are good.The only advantage i see that Intel has over AMD is its cooling system.aside that,AMD is better

Both processors are good, but they both have advantages and disadvantages.

an AMD processor is faster than an INTEL processor of the same speed, that is why it is used for gaming and graphic designing, but the silly thig about it is that it has localization issues(HEAT MANAGEMENT) it is suitable only for cold climatic regions, and burns up in hotter regions.

on the other hand intel is cool to, does not heat up, but over hyped and from my experience hangs alot, when compared to an amd processor, u can not overclock an INTEL processor, but u can bring out the hidden power of an AMD processor, INTEL is expensive and AMD is cheap.

as for amd drivers, jsut go to the website and u will get any driver update you want, even up to the graphic card attached to the AMD board,

i use a AMD turion x2 64bit 3gb processor and i bet you, it kills an INTEL of the same speed, only issue is the heat, so i stick to very cold areas and my PC just glides through every process i take it through,

pls pick a processor u a vry convinient with,

i believe intel is probably better; however you're more likely to

get a cpu that supports virtualisation if you go for amd

I would say Intel cos AMD has heat Management isssues

me think when it comes to processing speed and cache memory, AMD processors are better, this explains the use of these processors as hybrid servers, however when it comes to localization advantage, it is known that intel is better adapted for the tropics, than intel.

well in terms of processor power and speed, the AMD processor is far better than the intel processor. this is because the AMD has a faster clock speed which can process more infos faster; this is good for your gaming and 3d softwares and applications. an AMD processor with 1.75ghz speed is equivalent to an intel processor with 2.5ghz processor. for more info call: 08039407691

I would say Intel because they obviously cared enough to even setup an office in v.i, lagos for nigerian market. Have u seen any amd representative in nigeria ?

Intels are better, obviously.

Could it be the reasons for it being much cheaper? I did never experience that heat of an oven of my Turion X2 Dual Core lapi, though Intel leads generally.

Amd vs intel.

In d past,intel processors dominated d I.T. market until d advent of d former.despite d new development,intel processors are voted as d best due2climatic conditions.

Amd processors were fitted4cold weather dats why its rampant overseas.why?u may ask,is because it generates a lot of heat.infact,after using my laptop,a kettle of water wil boil faster on my laps dan wen keresene stove is used.lol.so wen it heats&not cooled immediately,it hangs.dats why we experience d hanging wahala here in naija.on the other hand,intel processors were invented2strive in any weather condition.so fellow nairalanders,no long thing.hope say i no too talk.

Off topic; are you trying to tell us about your ownership of your said website or what? Try sort out your thing with whosoever in question.

Please do not mix up things here as we're discussing something quite different titled "Intel Vs Amd; What's Your Opinion?"

Good luck!

seun, could you kindly look at this thread?

http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-298954.99999.html#bot

I am getting really mad at this guy. do you know i had to do a presentation in an international conference, and googling aratext, brought out all the useless post this so called impostor is spreading all over the internet? and all the posts are on Nairaland.

This is an abuse. we both know who designed the platform. Am returning to naija tmr. Pls give me a number i can reach you or mail me asap.

My first laptop was Amd bt am using intel nw. I cn say that both are good except d power consumption issue where i stil prefer intel.

can anyone tells me which proccessor runs its ipod, or dvd player or phones? the truth is that we have been over washed by the marketing brand of intel. many of us grew up with the logo'sof intel inside. many will not consider buying a pc (including me) unless it is powered by intel proccessor. this is what happened in the early days of microcomputers when other microcomputer architectures lost the battle to ibm's architecture which happens to be a late commmer to the business (excpect for apple whichmaitains its own shares of the market). since ibm signed microsoft and intel, they rose up from been a mushroom company to a super giant as we see them now. at that time, the 1st dos by microsoft is not as powerfull as that from DRI. but today who rules the software worlds?

The top manufacturers of computer systems use both processors(Intel and AMD) even the best of HP laptops like most HP Pavilion tx2 series(newest tablet pc) and Dell Studio/XPS laptops have AMD Turion Dual Core X2 64bit integrated and are grossly accepted worldwide. Both work pretty well and good but Intel leads in the overall performances.   

Their market values differs.

Seun, do they have any climatic factors attached? Thanks.

Currently, there's no competition. The best Intel processors are much better than the best AMD processors.

I've used both and they work pretty well anywhere. In fact AMD are most common in the US and UK. What the heck with some parading quack engineers here in the country who advice people against systems with AMD processors?

You're right. Many graphics designers and civil engineers go for AMD Athlon and Turion X64 series and some other few mere users say AMD hangs. AMD Semptron is compared with Intel Celeron, AMD Athlon is compared with Intel Dual Core, AMD Turion is compared with Intel Core Duo(2).

The market values; funny enough all the top manufacturers of desktop and laptop PCs use both(AMD & Intel) processors. I also observed that AMD is usually cheaper than Intel processors.

I think both are ok and are doing very well, however some will argue that AMD laptops come with better graphics cards than INTEL laptops.
