Which is the best processor- INTEL or AMD ?
29 Jan 07
Depends on what you mean by the term best. As far as performance is concerned- Single core- AMD Athlon- The Intel does not come near in performance, processing power, and also costs more. For the years 2002-2005, AMD was the best processor, thrashing Intel in all departments inspite of costing less. Dual core- However, it changed in 2006, with the advent of the dual core processors. For dual core Intel beats AMD in almost all departments except possibly mathematical calculations. Quad core- Intel, AMD quad has not yet come out. However, if you factor in costs for the average user, it is AMD especially in India.
