For some time I have wondered which is the better of these two fighters? Im purchasing a new PC at the Taipei computer faire and still have not decided. I’ve had experience with both processors, and have this to say:
I found Intel to be amazing at windows and gaming. A super processor, except for the high voltage usage(bad for laptop users). It was rather difficult to overclock too.
The AMD(Athlon XP) was the most recent processor I had. I found it quite a hassle, for some reason it would register 100% usage while I was in Internet Explorer!! And the gaming performance was only slightly better than the same speed Intel chip.
Another thing was AMD’s running temperature. It’s ridiculously high, something like 53 degrees Celsius.
So after much deliberation, i’ve decided its time to let the Pentium rule again and put the Amd to rest. RIP
