When it comes to processors or CPU’s, you have one of two manufacturers to choose from: AMD and Intel. These companies make virtually all of the world’s desktop PC CPUs, but that’s where the similarities between the two firms end, for the most part. So, should you go for an AMD or Intel CPU when building your PC?
Here, we will delve into the differences between Intel’s and AMD’s CPU offerings, which will help you make an educated decision when it comes to purchasing a new computer.
There’s no real “right” answer when you’re trying to decide whether you should go for an AMD or Intel processor.
The Intel Line up begins with the I3 processor. The computers that are based upon this processor are for everyday use and casual gaming such as apps on Facebook, and sites like Pogo.com. The AMD counterpart to this would be the A6 processor.
Next up we have the Intel’s i5 processor based computers. These units are good for watching movies, creating and sharing home movies through programs like Movie Maker. The AMD counterpart is the A8 processor.
The next two are the high performance gaming machines The Intel i7 and the AMD A10. The computers based upon these processors pack a serious computing punch and look to pay for that performance.
The price difference at this level of performance for a laptop based on the AMD A10 processor vs the Intel i7 can be as much as $400-$500 for essentially the same performance.
For an everyday user who does more that checking email, updating their various social media pages I would recommend the AMDA8/Intel i5 processor, however, If you just check email, log into banking to pay bills and check Facebook etc. The i3/ A6 series processors will do you just fine.
