I am prepared for this question to be closed. If that happens...so be it.
I am not looking to start a flame war as I have a real question that I have researched and not found any satisfactory answer to. I am looking to build a new machine and would like some real answers.
I know that there are differences in the specs and models. I'm not a newbe to this arena.
My main questions is this:
What is the real, concreted difference between Intel and AMD CPUs? What makes me choose one over the other? When I compare cost vs performance, I have to go with AMD...or maybe I am missing something.
Price is the most obvious difference to the casual shopper. What is the reason for the price difference? Does AMD simply build cheaper and lower quality products?
When you buy an Intel are you paying a lot for nothing but a name?
