Intel vs AMD

What to choose: Intel or AMD?
When choosing a computer CPU, it is usually reduced to two options: AMD or Intel. The CPU wars between these two corporations have been going on for years, even giving rise to antitrust charges filed against Intel several times. Both manufacturers have created some amazing products and some without success, and both have some sworn followers (also known as fanboys) among technology experts. However, no matter which company you prefer, you must accept that the competition is excellent for consumers, since it reduces prices and promotes innovation.
You will find more information about the two companies, comparisons between specific CPUs over the years and links to Intel vs. AMD benchmarks on the next page. Most importantly, review our ongoing discussion and share your own thoughts!

About Intel
Intel (acronym for Integrated Electronics) is the world's largest CPU manufacturer. It was founded in 1968 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California (USA). Intel is the creator of the x86 CPU architecture that is now used on most PCs (and, since 2006, also on the Mac). Intel's dominance in the x86 CPU market generated charges for antitrust violations in the US. UU., The EU, Japan and South Korea over the years.

About AMD
AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) was founded in 1969 and is based in Sunnyvale, California (USA). It is the second largest x86 architecture CPU provider and, after a merger with ATI in 2006, one of the largest GPU manufacturers (the other two being Intel and nVidia). It is considered the least favored of the CPU market due to revenue and market share several times smaller than that of Intel.

Are Intel or AMD the best CPU in the computer?

Comparison of Intel and AMD
Both AMD and Intel obtained a large amount of CPU over the years. We could observe the competition between Pentium and K5, Pentium 2 and K6, Pentium 3 and K6-3, Celeron and Duron, and so on. Back then, everything revolved around the CPU's clock speed, but everything changed with the Pentium vs. Athlon XP competition, which began in 2000. Intel could increase its P4s while AMD could offer better performance per clock.
For example, a 2 GHz Athlon XP would easily surpass a 2 GHz Pentium IV; however, the P4 could work at higher clock speeds due to its architecture. Intel used the largest numbers in marketing with great effect. As such, AMD adopted a "performance rating" for its CPUs instead of unprocessed gigahertz. Ironically, Intel soon reached a limit on the clock speed of P4 and switched to a Performance Rating system, ending the "MHz wars".
AMD was the first to introduce a 64-bit processor aimed at an average consumer in 2003. Intel soon followed; Nowadays all modern CPUs can run 64-bit applications, while they are compatible with previous 32-bit versions. For an average user, the most notable benefit is being able to use 4 GB and more RAM (32-bit systems can only manage up to 3 GB).
Both companies soon began looking for other ways to increase performance instead of increasing clock speeds. In 2005, AMD launched the first dual-core Athlon 64 X2 processors and outperformed Intel in US retail sales. UU For a short period of time. Intel responded by launching a dual-core Pentium D, followed later by a new Intel Core series (Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7). AMD continued with its dual-line Athlon X2 CPU and quad-core Phenom (which was not very successful at all), followed by a much improved Phenom II.
Currently, Intel Core CPUs based on the Ivy Bridge and Haswell architecture with integrated GPUs show superior results to the new AMD Piledriver (FX) series, although the latter is usually cheaper. The future of AMD seems to be HSA (heterogeneous system architecture), which integrates CPU and GPU closer than ever.
So, how do you decide if an AMD or Intel processor is better now? Your best option would be to check the reference points on popular hardware sites. Neither the gross MHz nor the number of cores will tell you exactly how well the CPU will perform in real-world conditions. As a general rule, AMD APUs are great for budget compilations, while Intel CPUs are better when you need more power (and do not mind paying more for it).

How to Activate Windows 7 & 8 for Free

If one day your personal computer starts to act and questions your Windows activation status, you may have to prepare for a series of activation settings. Your preferred and optional fixes may involve getting help from Microsoft support services and using the Daz loader and other pirated tools. If you choose to adjust your system using the latter option, keep in mind that Microsoft will install Windows Activation Technologies to counteract them.
Examples of Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) pop-up windows include: • This copy of Windows is not original • You may be the victim of a software counterfeit Previous and similar notifications can happen due to the following: • The original Windows installation may have disappeared for one reason or another. This even when you have purchased an original copy of the Windows installation DVD. You probably did not follow the activation instructions to the point and now you are paying the price. • Or maybe he was scammed and bought an illegal copy of Windo…

Beginner's Guide to the Best USB DAC Headphone Amps, 2016-2017

Even very good sound cards need a little help to convert digitally stored music into a high-quality, genuine sound.
If you store most of your music on a Mac or PC, a special digital-to-analog converter will go a long way in making it worthwhile to invest in a good pair of headphones.
Whatever your heart's desire, from a concert hall experience to a full beat festival, a good conversion will bring your digitally stored music to life.
Even MP3 files on your phone or tablet will lose less "loss". The compression results of lost files can produce a watery sound and reduce the dynamic range of the audio. A DAC helps fill in the gaps.
Do you want more than just a music amplifier?
Many people will want to use a digital-to-analog converter amplifier to get the best sound from movies and videos. The sounds of a cable box get a big boost in quality. The sound of the game console can be greatly improved.
