Maybe if this was 1990 you may have been onto something but IBM gave up on the Consumer market ages ago.IBM will never let AMD go under, absolutely no way. Who on earth want's Intel dictating what CPU technologies will be chosen? I don't so.
AMD will only change there strategy and compete on Price/Performance until they can get something competative out that blows Intel out of the water
I support AMD because:
- tried Intel, and for my use AMD was and still is a better choice (example: try to use dism with all patches for windows; Intel based PC will die and will be unusable for a few hours, while AMD finishes 1 hour before an Intel and during the task the PC is usable)
- I don't care for the quantity of game framerates; I play games 2x in a month
- I use Sony vegas for rendering and it truly uses all cores on the AMD platform to the max, while Intel....that's just sad story behind....
- I was thinking buying a laptop, a cheap laptop with the CPU virtualization and I wanted an Intel (I was recommended by I friend who I trust about these things), the problem was that the Pentium mobiles don't have virtualization, while even the cheapest model of any AMD CPU has it. This rises a question "Why would I buy an Intel???"
So here you have my opinion and logical reasons why I support AMD. Now I own a 8-core AMD beast and it does the job damn good!
Whatever you two are smoking can I buy some?this is also the reasons i use an AMD. fuck i5
AMD just feels a lot faster somehow.
