label me as you will, but ive been in this industry for the past 6 years, progressivly getting more and more involved.
MY experiences are as follows....
amd has always been cheaper, and usually is able to stay on top of the benchmarks, or with intel on almost everything else. I would not, nor have i ever bashed intel. They are a great company, make a great product.
If you really want to get into why AMD is better, or so many believe that, start researching clock cycles, and how amd utilizes clock cycles differently and well better than intel.
