Okay, reasons pro PowerPC:
+ much more torque, so less RPM required  Wink/being sarcastic
+ well-suited to emulate other machines (even multiple ones)
+ greater choice of OSes (all PC + MacOS(X) + LinuxPPC)
+ only CPU to support Unix with proper user interface
+ low power dissipation (excellent battery life for portables!)

AMD is cheaper and more powerful, but the problem is the heat.
AMD anyway for me.

P4 2.2ghz 512k L2 cache

with AMD you get what you pay for. a cheap product at a cheap price. Intel is reliable..why do you think Intel is used in servers and not AMD? that's just MHO.

AMD.

I was having a dilemma as to what to get. the P4 2Ghz or the AMS XP1900+. I got the latter, mainly because the computer co. didn't have any more P4s  Laugh out loud

Anyway, it gives better performace (fact) than the 2Ghz, even the XP1700 gives better performance thatn the 2Ghz.

So, if you want good quality at a low price, go AMD. If you have snobby computer friends, go for Intel. If you want the fastest speed, go for the Intel 2.2Ghz (NOT the 2Ghz). That is the fastest around at the moment. It used to be my XP1900+ but you know what the computer world is like.

I think AMD is faster, atleast thats what the computer guy said. You never know, he could be kidding me. Anyway I have a 1.6 ghz Athlon Compaq Presario and it serves me well.

only AMD for me. With intel you pay 2x as much for 1/2 the performance, well it's not a half... but you get the idea.

Me and a friend ran 2 cpu and multimedia tests using Sisoft Sandra 2001te Pro, and my 1Ghz tBird smoked his 1.2Ghz P3. WE have practiaclly the same setups 256mb pc133 ram, 20 gig hds, sblive, geforce2 cards....

I had screenshots of the tests but i can't find them right now.. i'll post them here if i do

Dell Dude, do you know what your talking about???

Every computer I build...I think I built over 200 now, has had an amd processer. From the K6 to the Athlon, they are my choice.

Plus take a look at http://www.tomshardware.com. They will show you what processer is better!

Always Intel. Never had an AMD. I have the 2.0ghz P4 HP and I think it is the best thing ever. It is fast! I think you pay a little more for Intel but get more quality from Intel.

I like AMD for the value. However, Intel has better chipset support in my opinion.

Exactly. I've seen tens of tests showing clearly how slower AMDs have beaten faster Intels.

but get more quality from Intel

More quality? Just how do you define quality? My Duron 850 MHz runs at 1012 MHz with no problems at all. Do you think it has quality enough? I'd say it's very good quality as it still works  Big thumbs up

It's the brand (Intel) which costs.

PS. My Duron "1012" MHz beats my friend's P3 1.2GHz or whatever it is. 1.2 GHz and Intel at least  Big thumbs up

AMD is almost just as fast as the Intel, in some cases even faster, and it costs only half of Intel's respective processor.

I will never buy an Intel anymore. There's just no point in bying Intel. Of course if I were working in a compnay and had a computer there, I'd take Intel for it's reliability. For home use, AMD is many times better than Intel.

I think quality is just something embedded in us. We assume iNtel is better because it's been around longer, and because even if we don't admit it, it is more expensive, however much.

One can say that the P4 2GHZ is fast, however only specific tests will say that it's faster than the AMD XP1900.

If I had a P4 2Ghz and a XP1900, how would I be able to notice the different? No way, unless I had a tester thingie.

AMD cpus are not "faster", they are more powerful
on a clock per clock basis (much more).

174thwff, my thoughts exactly.... I will always stay away from Intel.. overpriced and underpowered. When i budgeted my computer with an Intel processor of similar speed, my budget came a good 300 dollars over the AMD Duron processor, which made all the difference.

Quite honestly, the best system performance I have ever had is with a Motorola processor..an Apple Macintosh IIfx, running System 6.0.7. When first introduced in 1990, it was priced around $10,000...now you can pick them up on eBay for $30 or so...which I intend to do very soon  Smile

The processor was a (mind numbing at the time) 40Mhz Motorola 68030 with a FPU. The IIfx also had unique features such as SCSI DMA and a proprietary (unfortunatley) type of RAM which were all way ahead of their time. There were two processors just to handle floppy drives Also, it had a 40mhz main bus, how often have you seen a main bus running at the same speed as the processor clock? Almost never.

System performance was simply amazing with System 6...I remember it took only about 15 seconds for boot-up. Performance was blunted a bit with System 7 but still very fast.

I have been disillusioned with Apple's product quality and strategy since 1995 and work on PCs now, but am now starting to make a collection of older hardware. The older models have truly stood the test of time and show remarkable build quality and usability.



After I get a IIfx, the next on my hit list are the SE/30 (another amazing performer) and the infamous backbreaking but rock-solid Mac Portable. And a Lisa would be nice too, but they're getting scarce  Smile

You might want to look again...  Wink/being sarcastic

AMD have indeed managed to squeeze a lot more juice out of the completely braindead x86 design than Intel themselves; That´s an admirable feat.

But even Intel has recognized the x86 is nearing the end of its useful life. (As evidenced by the (largely failed) attempt with the "Itanic" design.) Lengthening pipelines and increasing clock rates can only do so much.

The Motorola/IBM PowerPC, however, is a very different concept and a different story... Big grin
