Re: Why AMD?Originally Posted by chopin1810
And raise you my personal reason: AMD offered something Intel did not at the time I built my computer. I wanted a 64-bit CPU capable of running 32-bit applications and operating systems without emulation. Bam: AMD64. At the time I bought my CPU Intel had not yet decided to copy AMD with their "EM64T" chips, so AMD was the only option.
That being said however, even now that Intel has the EM64T processors out, I will still buy AMD because I have always found them to be better performers for a better price. By performance I mean games run faster. I also have had bad experiences with DOA Intel processors and motherboards and actually witnessed a Pentium 4 solder itself to a CPU slot.
None of this information is new however, so I direct any more discussion of Intel vs AMD to go on in one of the above linked threads.Registered Linux user #270181
