Irwin Electronics Weekly Digest Intel or AMD? What should I look for in a new PC? by David Irwin on September 04 In the 90’s Intel and AMD would leapfrog one another. Each new chip would surpass the competition’s best processor. That changed in 2007 when Intel released their first Dual Core processor. AMD tried hard to keep up, but for the most part, could never surpass Intel’s performance. Although AMD came close, they became known as a budget processor. The majority of the computers Irwin Electronics builds are based on AMD. You get performance close to that of an Intel chip for a lot less. There are certain rare cases where AMD does surpass Intel. The majority of tasks processed during day to day work are single threaded. This means the task will use only one core of your multi-core processor. In this scenario, Intel’s latest processors outperform anything AMD could deliver. However, in multithreaded tasks where multiple cores are engaged to process a task, AMD can give you a slight edge. One example is transcoding HD video. There is another catch to this scenario as well. Like Intel, AMD has multiple lines of processors. This scenario applies to AMD’s FX series processors. These more closely align with Intel’s Core i3, i5, and i7 series processors. We typically use the FX series processors in our desktop builds.
