Amd or Intel which 1 u will buy n why?
AMD is for Gaming.
Intel is for Video Encoding & DVD Ripping stuff
AMD is the best according to me.
I cant really explain why but the benchmarks tell the story.
Ask any PC Enthusiast what will he prefer.
I aint paid by AMD to promote it but love to tell ppl what is really worth mentioning.
i agree with u buddy
eva i kinda agree wid u.i'll go wid AMD.bcoz of da performace which u get in a very reasonable price.problem wid pentium is dat they bring a nu proc and chipsets every now and then without any reason in every 6-8 months.and there loads of other thins as well.
here no doubt amd will rule....becoz we r tech guys and we believe the evidence and all..........well for intel...mostly ppl who dont understand tech terms.....it rules there..........because intel has earn a name......
i will buy intel as its stable and i have neva had probs .. so y shud i change ? and its not that i am not a gamer... i am very much satisfied with my machine ...only the grafix card sux ... and amd well i would have gone for amd but it has all increased the prices of all its processors .. amd used to be cheap and value for money when it came in the market .. now as it has occupied a larger share, its becoming more n more expensive.. no doubt the perfomance is good but price also matters. see the dual cores for instance ... intel is priced in my reach and amd is well way way too expensive.
8) FORGET EEVERYTHING 8)
:roll: CLEAR YOUR MIND :roll:
AND JUST GO AND BUY AMD
By the way which one of us should change our Avatar.
I have more posts so you change yours.
Does that mean AMD is Unstable ? and has problems ? What kind of a reason is that ? :roll:
Care to explain this ?
Come on man dont just make vague statements before finding out the facts.
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 939 Pin CPU = 7200/- whereas
Intel Pentium 4 3.0 LGA 775 - 9,000/-
Intel Pentium 4 2.8 LGA 775 - 8,500/-
What does this indicate ????
Huh ??? :roll:
Dude the X2 is in a totally different league than the Intel Dual Cores.
And i guess you have forgotten that the Intel chips need a newer mobo so that the Dual cores work flawlessly.
Whereas the X2 works on current Boards based on 939 Pin Socket.
Now you only do that math to see what works out beneficial.
Now take for example
I have a 2.8GHz LGA 775 with DDR1 board.I have money to buy the basic Dual core,
I just cant get the CPU,i need 955 based board for that,which will be minimum 12-13k,this is ofcourse over optimistic price.Then i need DDR2 RAM even if i decide to get 512MB i have to shell out min 6k for it.
Total cost involved -
Intel Pentium D 820 i guess,dont remember - 313$ [am i right ?] = 14,00/-
Asus 955 Board - 225 $ = 10,000
512MB DDR2 - 6000
Total - 30,000/-
Now consider this scenario-
i have Asus A8N SLI Deluxe mobo with 3000+ 939 cpu with 1 GB DDR400
Now i have money to get Basic X2 that is 4200+ which costs approx 538$
Which is approx 23,672/-
I get the chip ,install on the board,update BIOS and my system is up and running flawlessly.
Decde for yourself what is cheaper.
good explation dark
this is a topic where noone will give you an honest answer. all amd users will say amds are better and all the intel users say intels are better. i dont see what the big deal is none of us is gettin paid to promote these companies so why stress it. use what you wanna use and thats it. they both have fast expensive chips as well as cheaper slower ones. overall amd is lower in price than intel counterpart
Darky , gr8 answer there bro.
But if AMD is better then whats wrong in saying it.
Also have a look at the polls , so many ppl
are not nuts here to vote for AMD.
Also have had a look at many forums , where
AMD Vs Intel Polls were conducted and AMD
wins Hands down.
see if i wanna buy a completely new rig the maths will be as follows for amd and intel
INTEL DUAL CORE
Intel Pentium d 820 - 13,000/-
ASUS 955 board - 10,000/-
512 MB DDR2 - 6,000/-
TOTAL - 29,000/-
4200+ - 24,000/-
ASUS A8N-E - 8,000/-
512 MB DDR 400 MHZ - 3000/-
TOTAL - 35,000/-
see now which is priced cheaper ... i totally agree that the 4200+ is in a league of its own but dude the price matters. maybe not for all but for some it sure does.
only thing i dont like is intel's every 6 month change in sockets and chipsets
... else i am very much satisfied with the perfomance and experience.
But you are missing the bigger picture here.
WHy would someone buy a Dual Core CPU ???
TO get superior performance,which Intel aint providing and AMD is doing so very well infact more than expected.
I am certainly not interested in getting Intel Dual Core just to see a screenshot and say hurrah i have 2 cores running in my system....sorry no.
Also what about the temperature issue ?
The Intel Smithfield has 2 Prescott cores running in a chip whereas the AMD has either 2 Venice or 2 San Diegos doing duty and they run cooler too.
What do you ahve to say now ?
mohit and dark both looks correct on their stand........mohit has a point while buying new rig intel wins(my view::::that only intel wants......they r knowing they lossing t the market so they kept the dual core price less)....................well dark too is right(my view:::most ppl upgrade comps.....new rig if only they can afford or old gone down).....
my conclusion::::but i guess....cpu on its alone doesnt count unless u hav the boards......and the rams......intel cunnigly placed the price down for cpu....but they earn it in mobos....tomm some new tech will come...and u will c intel comming up with say 965 chipsets.....and that facility 955 doesnt have....
according to me performance wise both r good......intel never gav me prob but amd did(actually smps was the fault)...but being a tech guy i cant fool myself.......that only i can say...so i went with amd...
hey man the tests and reviews say it all. amd is better than intel. i go for amd.i myself own a 64 3000+. btw amd is smarter too. as the cpus are 64 bit therefore amd users will not need to to upgrade for longhorn. whereas intel would have to.
ya intel's prescott core is having probs with the heating issue .. but i hope they get it resolved this time. amd also had heating issues with the athlons which they resolved with time , i hope the same for intel. see perfomance wise amd is surely better but then not everybody wants to spend so much. also ddr2 rates will go down further surely in some time and then the intel setup will become even cheaper.
mohit according to me ddr2 will only get cheaper when ddr 3 comes.....amd wont b introducing ddr2 mobos.......so intel will try to cash on it................
I want a new comp but wont up my machine now coz rates are fluctuating like voltage man now. Anyways also lotsa new standards r coming out so I dont want to be left out in the cold with an outdated pc once more. Thats why will wait for some time and then buy an AMD. I believe darky will help me
dj.......the prices will keep on fluctuating even after 3,6,9,12 months...if its urgent go 4 it.....otherwise waiting for setting price wont help...no doubt it will come down...but at the same time some new procc will come and then ull think this cheap rig doesnt have the new system features....and again ull wait....
