intel i7 8 core, £900
amd 8 core, £200

exactly the same specs and yet everyone nuts over the i7.
people just look at the price and think the more expensive something is the better.

Please for the love of god, the amount of cores doesn't show the performance.

Go on Anandtech and bench the i7-3960X 6 Core vs the AMD 1055T 8 Core.

And shut the **** up.

I heaven't seen many people explain the reasons so i will tell you, Intel does not have an 8 core in the I7 category, AMD does but AMD placed 2 cores per module and so they have 4 modules and each on of those "modules" only has 1 thread so more power per thread for games but it goes down hill from there.

Intel I5s and I7s have more then twice the bus value giving them more speed with the RAM and higher over-clocking ability and with I7s hyper-threading 1 core can do 2 things at once meaning for 6 cores can do 12 things at once and that gives a big improvement with video editing, plus you have quad channel memory allowing for more ram with Intel without losing speed.

also Intel has better benchmark.
#778 to #777 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
thumb for the polite explaination, but as i said, hyperthreading isn't exclusive to intel, it was invented as multithreading by amd and most of their chips support it.
#788 to #778 - anonymous (04/03/2012) [-]
actually as far as I am aware hyper-threading has not been done by amd but Intel did it with there pentium series and most people just turned them of it was only recently when they found a good stable place within Personal (or rather enthusiast) computing. Also this is all coming from someone currently using a phenom II (975 @ 4.0ghz to be exact)

The AMD eight cores are a piece of 						****					 compared to the i7 though, so it's worth the extra money.   
   
By the way, the i5 2500k beats the 8150 and the i5 is only quad core...

#757 to #754 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
an 8 core cpu only has 4 physical cores anyway.
User avatar #766 to #757 - noanon (04/03/2012) [-]
Yes, the AMD eight core has four wait until Intel releases their eight core, by the way they haven't released theirs because Windows can't utilise the extra cores and their six cores already out-preform 8150 and 8120.

Please learn about the architecture of the different processors before saying something stupid like that.
#753 to #752 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
ok, go ahead and list to me the differences between the amd and intel processor.
#763 to #753 - anonymous (04/03/2012) [-]
The differences?
The architecture and design concept of the whole chip is handling data in a complete different way.

Your asking to name the differences between the eiffel tower and the statue of liberty.
There built in 2 completely different ways.
User avatar #758 to #756 - noanon (04/03/2012) [-]
This should be conclusive enough.
#764 to #758 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
core + board with the intel is far more expensive and the best you're going to get is 8%. seems like a waste to me.
#770 to #764 - anonymous (04/03/2012) [-]
2500K + board is cheaper than the 8150 + board....   
   
You chat 						****					 bro.

#771 to #770 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
no he states that the 2500k is cheaper alone than the amd core, but if you want to run the whole rig the intel rig will cost you more.

Learn to Listen Broskies.   
   
Intel Rig with Dual GFX cards will cost more than an AMD rig with Dual GFX cards.   
   
But for single channel boards Intel is cheaper.

#776 to #774 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
and who uses single channel nowdays?
#781 to #776 - anonymous (04/03/2012) [-]
Dafuq?! You Stupid....

You talk about wasting money for little performance and then you think dual channel is standard?! HAHA

Dual GFX cards are the biggest waste of money to performance ratio. GTFO my internet!
#785 to #781 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
everyone i know runs dual cards, im running 2 6970's and i've had no issues and a considerable performance increase over when i was only using one.

You bought 2 $600 GFX cards and your trying to make an argument about power to the buck.

O god.
#795 to #794 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
they were £240 each, witch is what, $350-400? thats still less than one i7. so with the money i saved on my core i could get those cards.
#796 to #795 - anonymous (04/03/2012) [-]
i7-2600 and i7-2600K can both be bought for around £200 and even the SandyBridge-E i7-3820 can be bought for £220.

Also you do realise the point at which 2 GFX's out performs 1 GFX card?
#797 to #796 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
admittedly with the 6970's there's little need for 2 as of now, there's few games that cause a single one to struggle, but now and then they are neccisary, they will, however, not require replacing for a very, very long time (comparitivley speaking to most computer parts).

Hyperthreading. 'Nuff said.
#759 to #755 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
hyperthreading is exactly the same as multithreading wtich was INVENTED by amd.

Intel will always be the better company so stop trying to say AMD is better because they've been trying and failing for over twenty years.

#765 to #762 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
i'm not saying they're better, i'm simply saying for the money you can build a pc with practically the same stats for half the money.
User avatar #767 to #765 - noanon (04/03/2012) [-]
Yes but take into account the less efficient architecture of the AMD processors.
#769 to #767 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
according to a video in a link above, the margin is less than 8% for the intel competitor, and you end up paying far more for the intel rig than the amd one.

The i5 is a mid-range Intel processor compared to the apparently 'High end' AMD FX processors.
#773 to #772 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
i5 is an optimized gaming processor, its not all that far off the i7.

all i'm saying is you can spend half the money on a amd chip and not notice the difference, shout about how much better the i7 is all you want but for the money its not all that.
User avatar #779 to #773 - noanon (04/03/2012) [-]
And the FX series is optimized gaming CPU's as-well.
#790 to #779 - newall (04/03/2012) [-]
price is the deciding factor, bro.
User avatar #793 to #790 - noanon (04/03/2012) [-]
Yes, but Intel doesn't need replacing as often due to it's higher performance, so in reality you'll end end up spending the same amount of money.

Ever heard of Sandy Bride-E?
