Amd vs intel

  2. 2. Intel vs. AMD: Which brand of CPU should you choose when building a PC?
  3. 3. INTEL VS AMD
  4. 4. Intel Corporation is a portmanteau of Integrated Electronics (the fact that "Intel" is the term for intelligence information also made the name appropriate).Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphic chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing graphic chips chipsets flash memory

  11. 11. Slogan AMD Smarter Choice INTEL Leap Ahead Website CEO Hector Ruiz Paul S Otellini Stands for Advanced Micro Devices Intel Corporation What is it? A company that produces CPU chips, motherboards, and other circuitry for personal computers / Windows software. World’s leading manufacturer of CPU chips. Also produces motherboards and other circuitry for personal computers / Windows software
  12. 12. Main Products The product line of Intel comprises of: Microprocessors: The Pentium line, Celeron and Core. Latest innovations include the Core i7-980X Extreme Edition with 6 physical and 12 logical cores. Servers: Intel has chipsets, motherboards, software, memory and many more solutions for servers. Motherboards: Intel Server series and Intel Workstation series for servers and the Intel Desktop board for Desktops. Others: Intel manufacturers many communication and memory solution equipment and software for Desktops and Notebooks also.
  13. 13. MAIN PRODUCT Microprocessors: The Athlon variety, X2, K10, X2, AMD Opteron. Servers: Processors of the Opteron like are available for servers also. Motherboards: The AMD Crossfire series are available in this line along with many others. Others: AMD recently acquired a leading video card manufacturer and is promising more advanced video capabilities coded into new versions of their motherboards. It also offers software and memory solutions for businesses.
  14. 14. Competition and Market Share Intel is the inventor of the x86 series of Microprocessors and today both AMD and Intel are competitors at this. While Intel is said to be the largest producer of x86 based processors in the world, AMD is number two in it. Intel came out of 2006 with 77.7 per cent of the x86 CPU market, up from 76.3 per cent. Its 1.4 percentage point gain matched a 1.4 percentage point decline in AMD's x86 market share, which fell from 2005's 23.7 per cent to 22.3 per cent.
  15. 15. TIPS FOR COMPARING CPUS Intel and AMD are the two main manufacturers on the market. AMD is generally less expensive and found in many budget computers, whereas Intel is generally more expensive and found in high end computers. If you are using your computer to do simple task like text editing and web browsing, go for the cheaper processor. However, if you want it to perform more complex functions like video editing and gaming, go for the pricier multicore CPU. CLOCK SPEED is measured in gigahertz and describes how many calculations per second are carried out by a given processor. Cores refer to how many individual processors are located on the chip itself. Most processors on the market today are MULTICORE PROCESSORS. If you’re looking to buy or build a computer, I highly recommend putting as much money in your budget as possible towards your processor. It is the hardest item to replace in a computer, while other components such as memory and hard drives are easy to replace down the road.
  16. 16. Clock speed is pretty simple to understand - it’s how many calculations a processor can crunch in a single second. This is generally measured in gigahertz, abbreviated GHz. For example, if a processor says 3GHz, that means it can perform 3 billion calculations per second. Think of it like this, you have 4 engineers in a room solving math problems. They can each solve a problem at the same speed. So if you give them 100 problems, each will solve 25 problems and it would be done 4 times faster than if you had one engineer. CLOCK SPEED
  17. 17. Cores on the other hand are how many individual processors are combined onto one board. So if a processor says it has 4 cores, then that means that there are 4 processors combined onto one processor. Having multiple cores on a computer will allow multiple tasks to be carried out at once more efficiently. NUMBER OF CORES
  18. 18. COST EFFICIENCY Generally speaking, AMD’s chips are cheaper than their Intel counterparts. Not really cheap but it is cool to buy Not really expensive, but you need to check your bills before getting one
  19. 19. Overclocking CPUs have a fixed clock speed, and they’re typically set at a level which ensures that they’ll remain stable while performing optimally. Users looking to get more performance out of their CPU sometimes perform a tweak to the processor known as “overclocking,” which increases the CPU’s clock speed above the base rate. AMD chips are solid options for overclocking, given that they typically offer more cores for less money, and are more receptive to users tinkering with their settings. Intel chips are typically locked at their default clock speed, without the option to overclock them unless you opt for an unlocked version of their CPUs.
  20. 20. GPU efficiency GPU (Graphics Processor Unit) efficiency is one area where picking a CPU can get tricky. AMD processors can save you a good deal of money, but more powerful Intel i5 and i7 CPUs can take significantly better advantage of a high-end graphics card if you’re working with a higher budget. There can be a real, measurable difference in frame rate and latency when comparing how an Intel chip and an AMD chip are running apps when using the same graphics card.
