Benchmark Scores are good
Main system is powered by a Ryzen 5 3600 6C/12T and my Minecraft server is powered by a Phenom II X4 955 @ 4.4 GHz (2 cores disabled for 2C/2T, which is fine for an MC server. Moar faster single-core > less faster multicore)
Everything else x86 is Intel though. Mac mini? Intel Core i5-2415m 2C/4T. MBP? Core i7-3615QM 4C/8T. Rhapsody? Pentium III 500 MHz Katmai 1C/1T. P4HT? Pentium 4 HT 3.4E Prescott 1C/2T. School-issued Chromebook? Intel Celeron N4000 2C/2T (might as well be a 1C/1T Atom, the monitoring software eats up 80% of the computer's resources)

Intel in my desktop (i7-7700K), laptop (i7-7950H), and HTPC (i5-3350P). No brand loyalty - just made sense at the time they were built/bought. With the next generation of CPUs and GPUs coming out later this year, Zen 4 and/or RDNA 3 may very well find their way into my next build.
