*Noob Question* - How is the i7-3960x CPU better than the AMD FX-8150 CPU?
This is always how I thought CPU's were - The amount of processors and the processing speed are what make a cpu's performance.
I, am obviously wrong.
AMD FX-8150 - 8 cores, 3.6GHz
Intel i7-3960x - 6 cores, 3.3GHz
As far as I've seen, with the benchmarks and such, the i7-3960x is #1 over all other cpus, whereas the AMD FX-8150 wasn't even in the top 20.
I want to learn a lot about computers, involving cpu's, ram, gpu, and motherboards mainly. All I'm really asking is, what makes the intel cpu so much better?
