Always Intel, with one AMD in between. No particular reason for that. I kept and used each of my PCs for many years. Even managed to skip DDR and DDR3 completely. Every time I eventually did give in and built a new one, it seemed that Intel was a better choice.

1990 80286-12 (5 V, 1500 nm)
1993 AMD Am386-40 (5 V, 1500 or 800 nm)
1995 Pentium 90 (3.3 V, 600 nm)
1999 Pentium III-450 (2 V, 250 nm)
Still in use:
2007 Core 2 Duo E6400 (65 nm)
2008 Core 2 Duo T7500 (65 nm) notebook
2016 Core i5-6600K (14 nm)
2022, if my i5 goes up in flames: Core i5-12500, but I'd hate having to choose between DDR4 and DDR5.

Hi,
Need more options

Just from the op an option stating
I left Intel because AMD 5k series rules

And obviously an option should be,
I have both amd and intel

We have nostalgic hardware thread for reason.
Not getting your point here , what do you mean?!.

Personally I only listed my four present in use computers with a 50/50 spread so I ticked both boxes, I didn't list all I have ever used because that's not the question and I don't think I would remember All of them.

Not going to lie.. I was really nervous going with AMD this time around. The last time I used them was from 462-939 skipping 754. I rode 775 quite a bit from p965, p35, then x48. Good times. X58 was the longest I used a system. I snagged a z77 system off of my bro and rode that till p8z77v sharted all over itself. I was able to grab a z77 oc formula off another forum from an awesome guy. Good board.. kind of weird though. But really good with ram.. damned good. AMD is just as boring to “overclock” these days. X58 was the last true enthusiast platform..

I personally don't care about brand..... I'm waiting for Meteor Lake to decide what my next main PC will be between it and AM5 I will just go with what offers the best performance at the time..... I'm not really a price/performance kinda guy I usually just grab what is most interesting. I will be keeping an eye on how heavy UE5 is cpu wise in actual released products prior to investing into what ever platform I do as well. Seems like with everything cranked up even a 12900K struggles to hit 60fps guessing with optimizations that will at least hit 60 but it may take a next gen cpu to get 90+ depending on how hard Developers push the engine in future games.

currently running in my main systems

5950X replaced my 9900k technically
5800X replaced my 3900X technically
6900HS in a ROG Flow X13 replaced my intel based MSI gaming laptop mostly used while traveling.

The next CPU to be replaced will be the 5800X I will likely keep the 5950X at least till AM5 is fully mature because as long as both vendors are competitive I would prefer to have one system from each.

Even though I'm rocking all AMD atm prior to picking up a 3900X in 2019 it had been over a decade since owning an AMD based system.

Intel for me so far, from Pentium 4 to Core i3 2120, then two laptops with Core i7 8th gen + Core i5 10th gen, and now Core i5 10400.

AMD since 7. Generation to Ryzen 7 3700X.
Only my old Notebook(MSI GT 725) has an Intel CPU: Core 2 Duo P 9500(not in use).

Nvidia use an ARM module inside the Tegra X1. So Arm = 1 ;)

I think that this way of saying wrong. Then we can say - apple, mediatek, nvidia and others doesnt make cpu, only arm.

I think that's it for AMD stuff.

The Celeron/Pentium 3 hybrid in OG Xbox I suppose

Need a similar thread for GPU's now. I know some people here are sitting on a mountain of old cards

Nvidia use an ARM module inside the Tegra X1. So Arm = 1 ;)


AM4 certainly has been long lived. Never expected it to run through this many CPU gens. Given old 300 boards have been getting updates to support Zen3 is brilliant for customers.
Considering Super 7 lasted till Intel couldnt stand they were getting kicked in the teeth by AMD during K5, K6, then K7, K8.

Seriously though, these are the CPUs I've acquired in order (excluding anything in a mobile device):

Intel Celeron 1.8Ghz Willamette
Intel Celeron 2.4Ghz Northwood (Still have it.)
Intel Pentium 4 630 Prescott
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego (Still have it.)
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe
AMD Phenom II 940 Deneb
Intel Core i7 3820 Sandy Bridge E (Still have it.)
AMD Phenom II 960t Zosma (Still have it.)
AMD Phenom II 980 Deneb
Intel Core i7 3930k Sandy Bridge E (Still have it.)

I'll give either vendor a shot. AMD and Intel both make exceptional CPUs and I could be convinced to buy either.

I know alot of people have switched from Intel to AMD since AMD ZEN.
Curious how many TPU users are rocking AMD or Intel in 2022 (maybe both if you have more than one system).

Note: This is not a thread to argue about who you think is "better" or anything like that.
I got to be honest with you. I bought an AMD Ryzen processor and an NVIDIA GPU. I kind of wish I had either bought an Intel processor paired with the NVIDIA GPU or just gone all in with AMD and bought the Radeon. I feel like I could have saved money by going the AMD route or gotten better performance if I had gone the Intel/NVIDIA route.

I'd say it depends on what it is. If it's an SOC. NV don't have a CPU core of their own so they use Arm cores along with their GPU core
