Intel vs AMD

The big guy vs the little dude, and why we love them both ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

It all started when IBM created the PC platform: it wanted to use the Intel 8086-series, but one of the IBM corporate policies was to require 2 sources of its chips. So AMD took a licence on Intel’s intellectual property… And IBM could create the first PC.

So, let’s talk about Intel first.

It’s simply the largest semi-conductor manufacturer in the by man known world. They produce network-products, nand-chips, cpu’s, gpu’s and much much more… And they are the original inventors of the x86 instruction set.
And this is why I love them: they simple create the fastest cpu’s available for home usage ๐Ÿ˜€ The downside: they cost a lot… ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

Second, Advanced Micro Devices.

The second producer of x86-cpu’s. What they do, is offering the best price/value ratio on the market. Their cpu’s are simply pretty performing, and actually doesn’t cost that much! Especially when you compare AMD’s prices to Intel’s… (you already have a AMD hexacore for about โ‚ฌ200. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Also a great thing they do, they don’t change socket as much as Intel, and every change in socket requires a change in motherboard, and hey! A motherboard costs money… Since I’m aware of computers Intel used lga 775 (latest pentium’s and first core2duo’s), lga 1156 (i3/5), lga 1366 (i7), lga 2011 (sandy bridge)… And this while AMD still uses am2 and am3, which is backwards compatibleย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž (Both 775 and am2 are from 2006)
It’s also the main innovator in it’s business… First 64 bit, hexacore, …

Personally, I made the mistake of buying a Intel core2duo e6600 socket 775…
Mmm… You can’t really call it a mistake, but see why: I could use an upgrade from this dual-core to a more performant quad-core, for example an Intel Q9550. The only problem: socket 775 is a death technology… They’re no new cpu’s being developed for… So… That makes the current versions “unique” and thus “expensive”… ๐Ÿ‘ฟ If I bought a am3 motherboard back then, I could now easily replace my first generation phenom with a nice 1090T hexacore from AMD ๐Ÿ™„

But since I don’t have a donkey sh*tting money for buying an upgrade, let’s not think about all this ^^
