@/all Intel vs. AMD. Intel is better for gaming isn't it? Sorry to pull you away from what you're doing.

I don't know how much better it is, but in general I've moved away from AMD not because of the CPU itself, but because of the piss poor drivers for their chipsets.
They feel like they're made out of tinkertoys
Or, at least, that's how I felt when I finally made the switch to Intel

Ah. I thought intels were better. I thought GPUs and graphics cards were the same.

you can game on either, but generally speaking, intel chips are more efficient than amd - for example (and this is just a rough example), a 3-4 core amd might compare to a 2 core intel

In terms of raw performance? Who knows. I just want to know that my drivers are going to work and be stable.
