kescherRant26267291dIntel is struggling to keep up. The temps on their latest lineup are a disaster.
EmberQuill2898291dAMD is doing really well now. I believe Intel still might be in the lead if you're comparing their top-of-the-line offerings, but it's also a lot more expensive and the margin between them is so small it's not really worth the extra cost any more, now that AMD has caught up.
Edit: also yeah, you'll get much better value and also lower Temps with AMD for a lot of reasons. No integrated graphics, better power/heat efficiency, etc.
JhonDoe3093291damd is doing quite good right now, ryzen are not the furnaces that fx were on it's time; and performance is so good. not what you asked but on the graphics cards department... well... nvidia
Root75107291dYes, AMD is better on virtually every metric.
• Core count
• Upgrade cost (reusing cpu socket)
• Power consumption
• Cache speeds
• Overclocking stability
• Mutlithreading performance
• Benchmarks like transcoding
• Circuitry bugs (unfixable)
• Backdoor bugs (sometimes unfixable)
The only place Intel still beats the Ryzens is single-core performance on their top-end chips, which leads to slightly better performance in games that aren’t optimized for multithreading. Intel is worse at literally everything else.
bahua13263291dIntel is handily behind AMD. They have sat on the innovation they last executed in 2008 or so, increasing performance in their newer offerings by just requiring more current and more cooling. AMD is running circles around them now.
