1st Item: Depending on what you want to do AMD may be better or Intel may be better. Mainly comes down to what you like, kinda like Ford/Chevy. I have both types here in workstations and servers, I like Intel for my servers and high end workstations and AMD for gaming and video editing.
2nd Item) The two movies of the AMD and Intel blowing up are fake. They are using explosives. How? Because, a chip will not blow out of the socket. As in the Toms Hardware video, you just saw them smoke, they do not explode. Also, If you look closely at the other videos when they zoom in on the motherboard, you will see that there is a hole in the motherboard as well as 1/2" - 3/4" plywood, sorry, not going to happen.
3rd Item: Till the day we all die, people will say AMD owns or Intel owns. "If you use Intel you are stupid", "if you use AMD you are stupid" People get over it. Yes, it may beat one in one benchmark, then the other in another benchm
Last thing im going to say is thatMost business men are theifs if you`re not then you probably wont be in business too long. ;-)
Hahahahahaha, so true...
AMD is still better, beat Intel to the 64-bit world, does much more with lower GHz, and doesn`t have that worthless HyperThreading "technology". I`ve also noticed on about every Intel computer I worked with slowed down significantly over a long period of time, whereas AMD doesn`t have as serious of a problem.
To the guy that got a messed-up chip, you have to install the heatsink/fan PERFECTLY or they`ll reject your return. I am guessing you did install it correctly, it isn`t hard to do, but they use that excuse a lot at stores like that. The best thing you can do (probably too late now) is to try and call AMD`s customer service about it. Can`t guarantee it`d work, but it would be worth a try if it happens again.
I still think AMD makes the better chip, though. I currently own an Athlon.
I swear, why do they even make those things?
I used the term engine without oil because more people would easily understand that then saying something else.
Last but not least im glad you know nothing about whats in your computer. Everyday thats the people who I take their money from.
Let`s nip this in the bud right now. You two kiss and make up.
It`s not the speed of the precessor, it`s the motion of the ocean. No... wait... now I`m screwin` up my analogies.
running a computer without its heatsink is like running a engine with no oil.
Interesting video to watch nonetheless.
