Well i am done arguing. Not a fan of all the puke Nikon throws on Intel.
But before i unsubscribe.
Intel is not overpriced and they come with a superior architecture. It's simply facts. And you are ignorant if you don't get it.
That's why AMD are cheaper. They have to be to stay relevant, and they are.
Here is a link to help you understand: AnandTech | Bench - CPU
The Intel CPU is 50-60 bucks more expensive, but it walk circles around the 8350 and it does it with less cores, power draw and heat output. You see why Intel architectures are better? You properly don't.
I am not saying AMD isn't relevant and you shouldn't buy AMD, It's just, don't trow money at the first and cheapest.
There are more to it than that little extra rendering performance you get per dollar. (ONLY because of the extra added cores)
And no, the FX-9590 is not even close to being the fastest on the market,. Where do you even get that??? it's soooo wrong.
That goes to the Haswell-E Xeons and I7-5xxx extremes.
As for you pidevildog07,
It's not a bad CPU, at all. You get a little more bang for the bug in some professional software and a little for de/compression as well.
I just needed to clear some misconceptions out.
