Just a bit curious how this "poll" like thing goes
Post your opinions on which you prefer.
Where's the poll?
I've always sided with AMD, and I root for them, but currently my next system will be Intel, although I can't build it for a long time, so I'm gunning for AMD to change my mind by then.
You need to make a Poll...
But I would say whichever is better at the time.
although i really love intel (i am a fan since the amd k6 II 450) i have to say the intel is the most powerf(o)ull know
Ditto. Fanboy syndrome sucks.
Edit: and I'm sure there are other threads just like this
I think you mean AMD von kain :: Im an AMD fanboy. But right now, Intel is kicking our ass in the chips. The only thing really going good is price for AMD. The X2 3600 is like 65 bucks at the egg. the biostar tforce 550 is like 75 bucks, so that is a good combo.
Intel is currently king of the road on all things cpu. Hell they dont even have the integrated memory chip on the C2D series and they still rock. I hate to say it, but Id go Intel for performance or AMD if you want a great cpu with little price
Intel's always been king of road for the last 15 years at least. It's market position just means it's always making more money than AMD, regardless of performance.
I have no idea how to make a poll. I don't see a poll option no where. If you could tell me I will know in future .
This is not what the thread is about.
i have liked intel since i got into computer, so my "poll" vote is Intel
intel dropped the ball on the p4's mate and everyone knows they sucked ass big time the athlon ruled for a good few years. to deny it is ignorant or fanboyism of the worse kind but they have defo come bk into the game with the c2d and thats a fact amd cant touch intel atm for sheer perf and overclockability and with the new amd lineup just around the corner that may change
or it could be another case of the ati vs nvidia syndrome where the ati fanbois where saying how much the hd2900 was gonna pwn the 8800 omg!!!! when it came out and upto now that hasnt happened and the wait for the 2900 has become some what of an anticlimax (although dx10 perf is still to name the king of the grfx chips RD2 anyone ?)
Was referring to the Who Is Best debate that almost erupted.
EDIT: Looks like it still might.
A poll thread with no poll on it?
Poll added... lets try to keep it civil guys .. we know where this usually leads ... lol
AMD. HyperTransport along with other innovations (doubling the number of processor registers, increasing the size of DDR registers etc). Though I'm using an Intel processor atm.
Lets not forget that the K5 was a RISC processor with an x86 compatibility layer added, and yet outperformed Intel's processors. These guys know how to design processors It's a pitty they don't have the string pulling ability and budget to match.
AMD for the mo.
AMD brings our the best in Intel.
Well it depends, if you want the cheapest possible and don't care about performance, then go AMD. If you want performance, AMD is garbage at the moment. Any core 2 duo can spank any AMD processor on the market if you overclock them both. This is coming from someone who hated intel for the entire netburst era. I don't care if Barcelona will be great. It isn't out yet, so I don't care if it can calculate pi to 1 million in one millisecond while maintaining a TDP of 1w, because it is future tech. Now what do we know about comparing future tech to current tech?
I really wish there were commentless polls.
How about just not looking at the comments?
AMD for me - because they're so cheap. Thus best for me.
AMD, I don't care who has the better tech out at the time, I just love AMD .
AMD just has a cleaner feel to it, in my opinion. And there's a nice long warranty on everything. And the heatsinks are, you know, quiet .
