Intel vs AMD: Which CPU platform should you buy into right now?


Gordon it’s the eternal debate AMD
versus Intel on the CPU side of things you know say we’re not gonna look at the
you know high high core count thread rippers and Zeon’s and and we’re you
know we’re gonna get a discrete GPU what do you think is the landscape out there
for CPUs what are the strengths and weaknesses of AMD what are the strengths
and weaknesses of until well first no matter what you read no matter what you
hear there is no right answer there is a right answer for you so don’t let
anybody else tell you you made the wrong decision on what you bought but right
now I think md has the advantage for most people discrete graphics okay first
let’s go over why Intel is great why Intel’s fantastic right now Intel has
higher clock speeds yeah they generally have slightly better I pcs they have an
infrastructure that has been nailed down longer they’ve been being told boards
that have been around a lot longer so kind of if you want to consider more
stable right AMD rise in motherboards pretty new most ninety percent of time
99% time no problems but Intel is the rock that they can lean on because it’s
Intel it’s it’s all the warm fuzzy nassif given with an Intel product but
the reason why I’m gonna say AMD still better is because it’s just so much
value which is you get more cores or more threads more hardware because a lot
of AMD CPUs you actually get the cooler inside Intel doesn’t give you the cooler
with most of its high-end parts okay so you got a factor in buying a cooler and
then there’s a price difference generally Intel 97 or k97 z KF that’s
coming out the 9800 K 9900 KF that’s coming out faster higher clocks pricier
– oh yeah five hundred and thirty dollars for the highest n part if you
can get them if you can get it three almost four hundred dollars for the 97 2
K versus what you’re getting out of AMD eight cores eight thread 2,700 X is to
84 with the cooler rise in 520 600 X is 185 with the cool
you’re looking at $200 to $150 more in your pocket with AMD now in tow we’ll
give you higher clocks generally better gaming performance sometimes better
application performance because everybody runs on Intel they’ve been
optimizing for Intel for a long time generally faster I’m willing to give up
say 20% of frame rate okay generally that’s across the board and in games
older games especially where it’s just CPU limited not GPU limited because for
the hundred and fifty to two hundred dollars I will get out of AMD I could
put that toward a fatter GPU so for a gaming machine and most of these
processors without integrated graphics let’s face that they’re being used for
gaming machines that’s the risk in a twenty sixty and a twenty seventy
practically pretty close $200 will definitely get you from a 2060 to a
twenty seventy 150 a little less but still you’re a lot closer to a twenty
seventy that’s a big step up in graphics and for most games you’re gonna want a
fatter GPU rather than a fatter GPU true that’s not to say Intel is got problems
again we just said it’s faster you also get quick sync as you mentioned for
people who do video editing quick sync important is a huge difference it slays
CPU base encoding and it only even kick the smoke out of GPU encoding for the
most part it’s pretty awesome yeah you can only get that on Intel or people who
are into video premiere or those kind of things that might actually be worth it
yeah well and there’s some people out there who’ve been burned by AMD in the
past yeah I mean yeah there’s there are some bad bad blood in the past the AMD
CPUs have not been the fastest in the past but Rison is a real deal it’s a
real fast CPU most applications it’s gonna be very close somewhat faster than
Intel it’s kind of Intel counterpart something’s a little slower and in
gaming generally 10-15 percent slower worst case scenario maybe 20 percent
depending on the game okay if it’s a pure GPU limited game if you’re playing
a battlefield 5 rate race or metro Exodus rate race it’s not gonna make
that much of a difference yeah so I say the advantage goes to AMD I think for
most people AMD but if you’ve got the money you’re
not that price sensitive I am but you’re not that price sensitive or you
want the absolute best for a you know mainstream single socket gaming machine
1900 k97 2k still got a strong message but will cost more okay well actually I
am very interested to hear what you have to say about this why did you decide to
pick AMD or Intel or why are you going to pick one of them you know I want to
hear what people think you know about the landscape as of right now like you
said earlier they shouldn’t just listen to you Gordon no I think I’ve definitely
nobody right don’t definitely none depends on your use case so what’s not
the best hardware it’s what’s the best hardware for you
exactly or some people quick sink higher clocks it’s best for them cost them more
but it’s best for them yeah right okay well the Thank You
Gordon for your for trying to take on this eternal debate for me and we will
talk to you later

  1. Apple product user sat explaining why a Ryzen is better because you get more bang for your buck…. I'm done! 😀

  2. i did my research, i ended followed my instinct what i know, including bad blood knowing & experienced, it is true, if you are on a budget, AMD is for you, i went for Intel 9980HK, i was satisfied, although price was little steep but in the long run i believe i made the right choice especially for daily notebook user.

    While AMD is the only Intel's competitor, I'm sure this will keep Intel checked in their marketing on their CPU MSRP/price index.

  3. Ryzen all the fucking way. it's no question really. Ryzen 5 2600 is $180 and 8600k is $290 it's fucking crazy

  4. did anyone else freak out when you saw that guys laptop, mistaken it for an apple(it haz sticker) and thought: 
    "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THAT POOR THING!!?!??!?"

  5. amd cpu s can finally reach their ultimate gain now. I think its because amd cpu s have always been better than intel chips. its just that the
    mainboard architecture was bad until the end of ddr3 standard. especially from the times of ddr1 to 3 amd suffered from its bad mainboards which could not lead to success no matter which kind of an impact their processors had. I mean even the fx8350 wasnt really possible to handle and then the fx9xxx models showed up and yah.. I guess that was the final alarm for amd to finally work on other points to unleash the potential the brand always held within unable to kick out. now they are and with such an impact that even the newest xeon dual cpu systems of intel cannot beat the latest ryzen threadripper models because they are also nothing else but a combination of two cpu s but combined into one chip which means a more central and better cooling option. I mean my video rendering loads are not only at 20 or a peak of 30 percent the load states I had when I was punished with the fx9590 not so long ago (I upgraded my 2 systems with threadripper cpu s about a half year and they perform wonderful at temperatures not half as much as my old fx systems. its not only that but of course my encoding times dropped a huge lot and its just that kind of a wonderful feeling when you dont have to worry about having maxed out loads even if you do many things which gain lots of performance dragged out from your hardware. cool thing and my final thanks to amd. I was very close to move over to intel with all concequences but I forced myself to wait a bit after the fx series of amd. I thought well lets give them the last change their true hidden potential deserves.

  6. Can you help me guys im planning to build cpu..im just thinking which is the best if ryzen or intel for gaming?? If i choose ryzen is there possible have overheat? Thanks for your suggestion

  7. But don't games use a specific number of cores? Or supposingly the new technology of like Zen 2 will distribute the performance along the cores anyways?

  8. Problem is I want a better cpu for streaming and recording purposes, so thats why im leaning more to the Intel side of the board, if I was just buying a cpu for gaming I would be with AMD but because of that extra use that I need it for, Intel may be where I lean.

  9. There really isn't much to debate. If you can't afford intel then you step down and go with AMD. Intel is superior to AMD. With Intel get a quality product and long lasting performance.

  10. I made my “high performance pc” with AMD because at that moment AMD seemed great. Intel came back hard and quickly and for generations of CPUs my pc was a loser against any subsequent CPU AMD was behind Intel CPU upgrade after upgrade. I go for Intel now without any doubts.

  11. I think Gordon is right on the included cooler part
    Ryzen almost always provides a cooler but Intel for their big and better processor do not provide one and for a person who likes to stick with his or her budget can put those extra bucks in to gpu

  12. My grandson who wants to build a game computer is wondering which way to go AMD or intel I am helping him we are not sure what to pick thanks have a budget of $700 to $900

  13. I understand amd’s cheaper but intel performs games better, and can handle heavy tasks and overclocking better than amd’s processors. Sitting here with my amd cpu and it can barley do 60fps. All my games freeze or just run horribly but

  14. All this AMD fanboyism is bullshit. If you can't afford the difference between Intel's flagship chip and AMD's it seems you have to tell the people who can that they are stupid to have spent more money. Does a $300 dollar wine REALLY taste $290 better than a $10 wine? Some people just want the best no matter the cost. Some people wipe their ass with that $300 difference. If the money's a big deal to you… fine get the cheaper, slightly slower one but, quit insulting people that are more well off than you because they can afford it and you can't.

  15. AsI write this, i9 9900 and Ryzen 7 3900 are the same price. $500 Ryzen has a cooler with it. Still confused as to which one to get. Lol.

  16. That white guy was so butt hurt probably INTEL SPONSORED AHAHAHAAHA oh and I’m getting AMD BABY WOOOOOOOOOOO

  17. I think intel is better, I bought an hp laptop with intel i7 and I also bought a Lenovo with amd a6 and I compared them and the hp laptop was better

  18. I bought my intel i78700k a year ago because it just seemed better for what I wanted, and i'm not price sensitive so I was intel all the way. I just new that intel had better optimisation and was better for gaming

  19. What would you suggest for someone who is looking to do a build primarily for Photoshop, Illustrator, lightroom, and minimal video editing. After spending days trying to find the right computer, I have decided I am better off just building one. I do have a budget, so I am looking at either an i7-8700k or Ryzen 7 2700k paired with a Asus motherboard and most likely at GTX 1060 ti. I thought I had myself set on the intel, but the more digging I do the more unsure I am the i7 is the best choice. In your opinion which would you think is the best route for me?

  20. Alright, being a console gamer for most of my life, I think I will now switch over to pc… but with no real experience I have no idea what to take. A friend of mine recommend for a good medium-high end, single monitor build the following: I5 9600K, GTX 2060 6GB and 16 GB RAM. I plan on using it mostly for gaming btw.

  21. Intel… If you decide to make products at a cheaper price with higher clock speeds than AMD, ill ask myself again whos king

  22. I have a question for everyone, I will be doing game design so I will using programs like Unity 3D Photoshop Maya 3D and other Adobe software's and ZBrush and on the side I want to play games and stream on twitch on my free time. I have an existing rig of Intel (i5 7400) should I upgrade it to i7 7700 or completely rebuild a AMD 5 2600 Build. Which one should I do, completely rebuild or just upgrade my CPU and I am on a very tight budget.

  23. The one issue I have with ryzen platforms is the support for more then 2 dimms of ram with ram running higher then 3200mhz. I have 32gbs of 3600mhz (4x8gb) sticks on a Ryzen 2700x on a x 470 board and I cannot run past 3200mhz stable for the life of me. Its not the end of the world cause the rig runs well but I paid for 3600mhz and I can only get 3200mhz?? grrr. Next time ITX for me on a Ryzen build.

  24. Intel CPUs (made after 2012) now have another security flaw, SWAPGSAttack, which bypasses the protections for Spectre and Meltdown

  25. Sorry I'm new to the PC world. Which would be a better build in regards to playing Arma 3? Money is a factor as well. Any help would be great. Thank you.

  26. I’m 13, I’m starting love technology, I already have some knowledge about tech, but I’m not sure what is better, amd or intel, can y’all tell me something about the two?

  27. I am going to buy an AMD ryzen 2700x the processor has 8cores 16 threads and like an Intel Core i2-9600k. It's not that big
    of a difference, id watched a youtube video and it would be like 20 -30 fps less with the AMD. AMD I also cheaper so I can buy a better graphics card:)

  28. I'm really leaning towards AMD for my next build. I don't do a lot of gaming, but I'm a programmer and need a beefy computer for multitasking and working on projects, and as far as my research has gone it appears that AMD beats Intel in the multitasking department hands down. I think Intel may have the upper hand for gaming rigs, but it's hard to beat AMD for work stations, especially when you factor in costs.
    AMD is basically the "No Name" brand of CPUs, where you get a lot more for your money, but with none of the "No Name" shittiness lol

  29. Bro how did you know the different is just between 800 MHz ??? The clock speed is write GHz pls tell me… How did you calculate thank you

  30. I could buy i5 and ryzen 5 for the same price en ryzen had 2 cores more okey clocking idc but for that same price i think ryzen was a better option

  31. Who makes AMD? China? who makes Intel? Taiwan? that will be my real choice.. Id rather my dollar to go to the right guy… its my democratic right to choose democracy.

  32. This Gordon dude seems like an absolute fucking unit.
    Too stupid to understand what he's actually talking about but I would vote for him to be president.

  33. I have no idea why I'm watching this. I'm still running a i7 3770s in 2019, and wont be able to build anything until at least 2022.

  34. i need someone to explain to me why i should make the switch, calmly, without spewing the same one liner, "shintel bad" because i genuinely am interested as someone who likes linux (without all the fanboy-like elitism)

  35. I used to be using AMD for soooo many years. Since Athlon 64 , then up to AMD Phenom II X4 940BE
    I does overclock a lot and the cpu never fried lol.

    Practically up to today ,then trend is the same. You can get the best AMD at the most affordability price.
    Intel is overrated even though their performance has always been on top

  36. The answers
    Intel most of the time has better CPUs but they come at higher price than AMD, if you are on a budget go with AMD, if you want a high end PC go with intel… its simple…

  37. Excurse me, i wanna buy laptop to study. I study software technology, and with $1000 i need to choose intel or amd. I just study and play gta v, i saw fx505dt of asus have ryzen 7 and gtx 1650 cheaper than strix g core i5 and gtx 1050. Thank you for help me
