It's not about badge, it's about capability!

And stability for me too.

 

I don't trust AMD with my studio these days, for an internet browsing everyday machine fair enough and imo not in a laptop.

 

in all the years ive been using AMD's ive never not once had a stability issue

Horses for courses.

It must be because Apple only use Intel in their Macs :pancake:

Lost interest in AMD wayyyy before I started using Apple products, then again............... I don't have a mac?

Got to say after doing some research I've been well and truly swayed over to the intel camp now. An AMD chip that looks fantastic on paper (4.0GHz quad core 4300) gets shat on by dual core intels that dont even have hyperthreading. And the 4.0GHz 8 core gets shat on by many many intels even low spec i5s. So my next machine wil be featuring a 3570K i5. And anyone who's looking to buy cheap should just buy the best intel they can afford, even the non i series dual cores are very good (and they can be had for fifty quid)

im no fanboy by any means and know full well that synthetic benchmarking will show and intel chip to perform better. but real world performance......i doubt youl notice any difference whatsoever.in a home user or gaming environment.

 

someone who encodes a lot or compiles kernals or programs would notice the difference

How come my system, with a more powerful graphics card and an "on paper" (overclocked anyway) more powerful processor is worse at playing battlefield 3 than an intel dual core processor system) using the same settings... AMD Athlon 2 X3 425 O/C to 3x3.0GHz vs Intel Pentium G850 2x2.9GHz

 

And its the same story comparing the FX series AMDs againstintels which are "on paper" worse

a g850 is an 1155 socket iirc, ur on an old am2 socket processor, so of course in this perticular instance the intel will be better as its much newer tech....as i said previously im not an AMD fanboy by any means but sayiong that intel is better than AMd isnt right as there are a million things to consider
