Well, I have AMD 3000+, but it works as 2091mhz, but Intels 3.0GHz works as 3.0GHz. So there. Well, if now AMD is fastest - whoopee. Could I ask what speed the newest has??? :blink:

AMD chips have better FPU performance ...
so thats good for most people, because its better for games, encoding movies, emulators, etc which is where the 'big gun' power of a chip is usually needed.
and they cost less.

It's not all in the Ghz, per say AMD FX-something has 2.2 ghz clock but has better performance than pentium on 3.6Ghz, even Intel has abandoned marking their proccessors by Ghz, because it makes no sense, because today there are too many other factors that decide the speed, like overall architecture, cache memory etc.

I loved AMD processors from their first appearance! And i always hated the Intel predominance!

I could explain this with many technical reasons... but i'll tell you that my preference it's only caused by a subjective personal preference!

Anyway, nowaday, no one could find differences between two processors of the same class if you don't tell him...

Yeh, I have a Pentium 4 3Ghz+ with HT

Runs like a charm...I had some issues with my video card (ATI Radeon 9800XT, it overheated and I had to replace the heatsyncs) but not with the Processor

i use amd becuse i dont use my pc as a rendering farm. intel is for hardcore programmers and render farms + vidio editing terminals maybe. for a home pc it has to be amd. (oo it rhymes, possible advertising message?)
i have heard if you are building a multiple processor cluster it has to be intel, but i have never desired such madness to be sitting on my desk. and i dont want to buy from a company that is rooted in american defence contracts.

Amd and Intel CPUs are of comparable performance, but since AMD are cheaper You can spend the money You save on a better GPU for instance... I vote AMD.

Just as a bit of info, I too was troubled by the fact that AMD chips never seem to run at their intended speed. Come to find out, one has to move some jumpers around on the mobo in order to get the recommended speed. k: :Titan:
