Share your opinions and cast your vote. AMD? INTEL? Price to performance? Money means nothing, give me the best?

amd had some decent value budget options a while back but not anymore for now intel has it all
except for atom vs bobcat where amd has a winner :)
hopefully someday amd will pull another good chip for gaming from somewhere

this is just in reference to desktops though i get the feeling amd may soon be doing better with laptops thanks to there igp

bang for buck. got my AM2+ Phenom II x6 109T and the kids x4 955 on those grounds. now, I think Intel might have it. AMDs southbridge for 6 port sata3 raid is a factor in some builds but if only 2 sata3 are needed, the FX chips are not coming up on top.

Well if games start using more cores, which I know RTS games would greatly benefit AMD may actually be back in the running. Only problem is that looks far away, unless the next gen consoles have hexa/octacores, which might result in games optimised for more cores over speed. We can only hope for AMD.

Oh and AMD are budget friendly at least, or well they were? Haven't looked at AMD since I started planning and got my i5 2500k.

And I also forgot that this sight doesn't have extreme fanboys, so maybe the shit storm will never arrive.

Wow, noone has voted for Intel yet. I was expecting allot of intel fanboys. I'm pretty happy with my phenom II x6 1090T. With two 6970's it plays BF3 with everything on ultra and 4xMSA, 4xAA on 1920x1080 at around 50-60fps. So for the money I saved on the 1090T and 890 chipset vs getting a much more expensive intel cpu and chipset, I'm pretty happy with AMD right now. All the money saved helped me get the graphics cards. Is it just me or do intel motherboards seem allot more expensive?

there wasnt many people buying intel rigs around here back when amd had the athlon x2\opteron 170 up until intel released core

as for intel mb being more expensive it depends what your looking at with lga 2011 yes but not so much with 1155
Asrock H61M-S $39 they dont come much cheaper than that but your looking at $100-200 for a overclockable mb but then there has never been much in the way of mb that are good overclockers for under $100


edit
2500k $180us $225au
once overclocked it should be capable of ~120+fps in bf3

ASRock Z68M USB3 $95au
starting point for a overclockable mb but due to 4 phase vrm i wouldnt like to push it to hard say ~4.4ghz with low vcore although oba manage to get a similar mb benchmark stable at 5.2ghz

Z68-EXTREME3-GEN3 ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 $134au
starting price for a mb with decent vrm

i'll buy whatever is the best performance i can afford at the time i need it. if amd release a better cpu next time, i'd buy that instead. this time round intel got my money (2500k) same as last time (q6600) however prior to that, AMD had my money (XP 2500+). AMD boards do seem cheaper, even the higher end boards from what I've noticed.

Cpu's I myself have paid for over the years.



Celeron 300a
Duron 800
Athlon XP3200+
Core 2 duo e8400

A small list but as I said they are the processors that I picked and paid for not ones bought by the parents or former partners, so no fanboying going on here and pretty much price perfomance favourites in that list.

As an aside I was on a limited budget for most of those I now could go an buy a complete Sandy Bridge E setup for cash I just have a lot of trouble justifying it.

I've paid only for AMD CPU's, since I've stuck with the AM2 platform for a long time, so they were drop in upgrades Would buy Intel today if I was building from scratch

Unless AMD can make a win with piledriver or steamroller my next build (which at the current rate wont be until the next gen consoles make developers design games that actually require me to upgrade) will probably be intel. I hate to say it as I've been a total AMD loyalist but intel is definitely where the smart money is ATM. UNLESS you want a really fun laptop then go AMD fusion (or should I say Heterogeneous as they are getting sued over the fusion label) - my friend bought a Samsung A6 laptop and having crossfire in a laptop is just so cool but actually being able to play games without shelling out for ludicrous amounts of money is pretty dam cool too.

In your edit, do you mean that if I combined by 2x6970's with the intel 2500k that my fps would go from 50-60 to 120+???
I'm interested to learn what the gaming benefit would be, my AMD 1090T with 890FXA-UD5 vs Intel 2500k with ??? Gigabyte board (I'm a Gigabyte fanboy)

it may take three 6970 depending on res\aa
im not sure that there is a benefit to 60 vs 120fps other than being future proof although some people with 120hz monitors seem to think there is
unfortunately there is not much in the way of benchmarks to accurately show just what current cpu's are capable of in bf3 mp
if bf3 could make good use of 6 threads then at ~4ghz im guessing your cpu would maintain well over 50-60fps as well

certainly not suggesting you upgrade just yet as others have said most games are console ports so very few games need more cpu power than that although i play a few that even a 5ghz 2600k isnt enough due to them being badly coded and single threaded

there isnt much in the way of good bf3 cpu benchmarks this is probably the best i could find as the others seem to be of sp gameplay which is far less cpu intensive

So an intel setup would give a 4fps gain
Thanks! that link has completely gotten rid off my itch to 'upgrade'.
So if I wont notice any difference in game and I'm definitely not going to notice the difference surfing the net and watching movies... Then whats the point in spending more on an intel CPU and what seems to be more for an intel chipset?

Maybe if there was a 10fps gain... that would be a different story

Other games have more pronounced differences but its not like the phenom makes the game stutter and suffer terribly - they still work fine but the sandy bridge CPUs just work better. In most games the phenom will outperform the FX and in that bench it seems like its the other way arround.

Dependent on game. Games that heavily rely on CPU power may be faster on the i5

Fun in what way?

in being the only fool who bought one.

seriously whats the point of this thread? the only good AMD chip atm is the 960T possibly a fusion APU if your into that sort of thing.
