Re: AMD vs I-core

No no, he needs TWO of them, and a dual socket LGA2011 board!

I went AMD instead of Intel and wish I would have went with Intel. Apart from games a lot of other programs seem to work better with Intel.

If it was a Phenom II prior to Sandy Bridge, that wasn't a bad choice.

It would take a lot to find an AMD fanboy still willing to argue that either Bulldozer or Piledriver are better than either Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge.

A lot of developers seem to be writing programs to run with Intel. I had to do a few work arounds or updating my bios and other stuff to get some stuff to run right on an AMD.

I was thinking up switching over to Intel but I might as well wait for Haswell.

I love my Phenom II to bits, it was a placeholder for Bulldozer which i never got. It has worked awesome so far.

Next build I will go with Intel for sure.

I would love to know what programs those are as both CPUs follow the same standards. I have been running AMD for years and not had to tinker with any programs to get them to work 'right'.
