Default Why is INtel better then AMD???

Ive compared some, w/o Overclocking, and AMD has much better out of box GHZ/ price ratio vs GHZ/price ratio.

So why does everyone think INtel is better then AMD?

You can't compare ghz between different processor architectures and ghz is not a direct indication of performance.

Currently certain intel cpu's are faster clock for clock meaning a 2.5ghz intel cpu is faster than a 2.5 ghz amd cpu.


AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition : Asus M4A89GTD PRO : Corsair 550VX
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4x2gb DDR3 1600 : MSI Geforce GTX 770 2gb : Antec 300
OCZ Agility 2 60gb SSD (OS) : SanDisk Ultra 120gb SSD (Apps) : Crucial M500 240gb (Steam) : Win 8.1 Pro 64bit
