o ya dood, intle is the sukz0r!!!!1

First of all, wrong forum. This belongs in hardware. But to answer your question, AMD is better, because it comes first in lexographic comparison. Yeah, one of the most important tests available in processor benchmarks. :roll:

So, yeah, AMD rocks, because they support Linux. And you know, are suing Intel right now.

Both processors have their strengths and weaknesses. Most people would agree that AMD is the current-generation leader but the two companies are constantly leap frogging each other.

To find out which is the best for you, look at some benchmarks for the applications/games you use a lot.

Well For me this is a hard Question....Because AMD generates A lot of heat when gaming, overclocking, Etc. And intel Doesnt...sooo But intel's working on there CPU to make 'em better. But if you can keep an AMD cool its the better ( i think )

Lol the first time i saw how hot my AMD(s) Were getting It scard the Crap out of me :LOL:
But later on i learned AMDs run safely ti'll they get around 80*C.

thats what i use.....and then i have 8-80mm fans 1-120mm fans that move air on or around the Zalman heatsink...

i think the hottest i have ever had my CPU is around 70*C after some long hard video rendering....

More accurately, rendering would be roughly equivalent to compiling. Usually when someone talks about rendering it has to do with video, as most audio rendering is able to be done real time now. Basically what happens is you make a bunch of changes to a picture or a video, and you get a low-quality preview of that picture, or a still frame preview of the changes you made to your video. When you get something that you think is right, you render it so you can view it at full quality/in motion.

Rendering has in the past been the most time consuming aspect of video editing, so people throw tons of money into computers to get it done faster. Standard definition video can be rendered pretty fast now, but wouldn't you know it they came out with new technology and we're back to waiting extended periods of time for HD video to render.

Also, rendering can refer to animation like what you see from Disney/pixar/etc. There's a massive amount of 3d work that goes into those and it can take days or weeks to do a final render.

Render farms are great. One of our 3D animators can't stand working without them now. We spoiled our team on a cluster of Opertons.

But to the first page, discussing heat: AMD processors have a lower clock speed then Intel processors, but they perform more work per clock cycle than Intel, too. This is why they get hotter, and why AMD abandoned the clock speed labeling of thier processors. AMD started to label thier processors according to how they perform when compared to Intel's chips, at the minimal level. Thus Athlon 3200+ runs at a clock speed of like 2.8GHz but it compares to Intel's 3.2GHz systems. At least, that's what it was when they started that line. Anymore it's not that way, I think they label them by processor series.

I've always thought AMD has had the better technology, at least from the 586 up. I never had a lick of trouble with my AMD 486's either, though. Once the Athlon line hit I was really impressed.
