Intel, but if I have to upgrade (unlikely) within two or three years time, its VERY unlikely Intel will be the best option. Not seeing them make anything notably faster or better than this 8700K anytime soon for my use case.

And AMD has some pretty strong USPs now that I dont see Intel beat them at within that time either.

Intel CPUs, chipsets, Ethernet, and Optane SSDs, AMD Radeon Pro workstation graphics cards - WX 4100 and WX 2100. :)

Cuz, the AMD Pro cards are inexpensive, offer bright clear clean crisp text, only sip power (50watts) the Radeon Pro software is extremely comprehensive, and your onboard cooling fan can be adjusted to inaudible using MSI Afterburner software which actually recognizes workstation cards. Who woulda ever thought that possible? :p

No Cyrix, IDT, IBM, ST or VIA love in this thread?
Or am I just an old fart hanging out here? :p
My first Intel CPU was a 386SX-16 and my first AMD CPU was a 486DX2-80.
I think my one and only Cyrix CPU was something like a 6x86 P166...
Same here.. Lol
My 386sx-16 had turbo.. One click and it was off to the amazing speed of 20mhz..

i can parse it - just need system specs and the last logon. or just system specs logged on the last 60 days...
