Are Athalon Processors Better Than Intel Processors?
Its a lot better. They are faster and more stable.1. Switching from AMD to Intel NEED HELP!?Wow! This is a GREAT question! I am glad I saw it so I can help. To switch to Intel you need a new motherboard - be sure it is for the processor you choose. If you pick a processor in the Intel Haswell line (which you should - it is the current line of processors), you need a board for Haswell processors. A board made for Ivybridge or Sandybridge processors wo not work, because the CPU sockets are different. Your RAM is fine. RAM is RAM, it works fine with both. (I sure do hope it is 2 sticks of 4GB, and not one 8GB stick! The DDR wo not work with one stick, and the computer will be slower.) Same with your power supply - it works with both. You do not need to buy Windows 8 again - you just install it again. You DO know that regardless of processor (AMD or Intel), you can still use your AMD graphics card. You only have to get an NVidia card if you want one. An AMD card works fine with AMD or Intel processors; AMD or Intel processors work fine with NVidia OR AMD graphics. I am using an Intel processor with an AMD card right now - you can hear me alright, cantcha? :D Helpful Cindy! :)2. what is a better processor the intel xeon(best one) or the intel i7(best one)?The core class and the xeon class represent a group of processors. The Core i7 920 is equivalent to the Xeon W3520. Xeons tend to be higher quality chips, but their true potential is seen when there are 2 or more physical processors on the machine. The current best processors available are as follows: 1 processor : core i7 970 extreme edition or Intel Xeon W3580 Bloomfield 3.33GHz (these processors only have 1 QPI link) 2 or more processors : Intel Xeon W5580 Nehalem 3.2GHz (this processor has multiple QPI links) aka it can talk to more processors EDIT: to the guy who suggests core i5, that processor doesnt support tri-channel memory nor Hyper threading. This topic is clearly about what is the best processor, not what is the best bargain. once again Xeon W3580 and core i7970 are the exact same chip! They will perform equally.3. Intel MicrocontrollerI went to the Intel site and had a look at their microcontroller site. There's absolutely nothing there, except for a link to a part which has been discontinued since 13 years. Datasheets are crucial! They should give you an answer to all the questions you are asking: about the voltage levels (not the reasons, they do not tell you that), brownout, power consumption, etc. You would typically compare datasheets of a number of products before you make a design choice. Watch out for parameters which are prime to your design. If you have a very low power design, the first thing to look for is power consumption, under different conditions. If your product is compact you will look at packages. It's all in the datasheet. Now Intel does not seem to have datasheets, maybe because the products do not exist anymore, but whatever the reason this does not help you. In that case, and that's what you always should do if the manufacturer offers you a bad service, go to another manufacturer. Why did you choose Intel in the first place? They have not been a major player in the microcontroller field for many years. Today for 8-bit you would probably go to Microchip PIC, or Atmel AVR. For 32-bit there are many manufacturers offering ARM controllers in dozens of versions, with all kinds of features. NXP is a favorite of mine. Look around!.4. Which is a better build (AMD vs Intel)?The Intel build is better. Better GPU5. Should I choose AMD or Intel?I would say intel. AMD selling is pretty down lately because of intel. I would recommend a INTEL CORE 2 DUO E8400. it already using 45nm fabrication for mor efficient performance and energy consumption. Bigger FSB and L2 Cache. I think the price is about the same as Q6600. less than US$200 If u want to use AMD then everytime u want to upgrade ur processor u need to upgrade ur motherboard too. cuz the socket is defferent.
