I read many of the posts on these forums, and honestly, I don't know where you guys get your statistics. Just a lot of fanboyism, with little or no relationship to facts.
Steam is the largest gaming site in the world. They do a hardware survey, on a regular basis, to better serve the needs of their customers by insuring compatibility. As one would expect, the people who frequent Steam from all over the world, use gaming computers.
Their surveys, consistently show, that about 73%, (+/- 2%), use Intel processors. But you guys have stated in a number of threads that... "AMD is the more popular choice for gaming computers."
Where do you get this stuff from? Your friends? Believe me, I'm not trying to pick on anyone here, I see this on other forum sites as well. Primarily because there are a lot of young people on these sites with a limited budgets, so they build AMD based machines.
Here, just look at this... Steam Hardware & Software Survey
I read the sales reports from the major suppliers such as CompUSA, Micro Center, Newegg, Amazon, etc. They all indicate that AMD processors are most often, and in some cases as high as 80% associated with budget builds, while Intel chips are generally sold for higher end, performance driven computers.
The facts are available everywhere, and are incontrovertible. Yet, so many are still willing to spout this factless nonsense.
Just trying to set the record straight.
