In today’s world, if someone has little knowledge of the computer and uses it to produce content, games, or for any other reason; He knows that AMD and Intel have been competing in the market for desktop processors for years. Although there are other manufacturers, they have not had the opportunity to expand in the face of these two great competitors. In a way, choosing the best processor, graphics card and even other components of a system has become more difficult than ever due to the fierce competition between AMD and Intel.
Both brands are getting better and better day by day and they are making better CPUs so that even if you are a professional, you can not easily choose the parts of your computer from them and you have to spend more time on this.
We can not easily say that each of the two brands has a higher level of technology than the other, but since the components of these two companies are not compatible with each other, you should choose your computer system based on one of them. This can be your most important decision when it comes to buying a computer. The good part is that both brands have their advantages. They also have a good variety in the selection of components such as graphics cards, and other compatible components and prices.
We briefly review the differences between AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series and Threadripper processors with Intel’s Coffee Lakes, Ice Lakes, and Cascade Lake-X. We want to help you make a good choice. Read more with us.
AMD or Intel? Price
In the past, AMD was your choice if you wanted a reasonably priced CPU. While AMD, with its latest generation of Ryzen processors, is on par or even ahead of Intel in terms of price. The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X, for example, is one of the most expensive, selling for approximately $ 750. Of course, with this high price, it also supports exciting technologies!
The Ryzen 9 3950X has 16 cores and 32 strings, which surpasses the previous flagship Ryzen 9 3900X. Of course, it has more processing speed and cache than the previous version. It also has the ability to store up to four different profiles for different functions and overclocking settings. So whether you are a regular gamer or a professional, or an artist and animator, you always get the best possible performance from your computer’s CPU.
Among the cheaper ones, AMD has AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and AMD Ryzen 3 3100 processors. The price of these models is $ 120 and $ 99, respectively, while offering considerable power. This proves that AMD is unrivaled in offering cost-effective and efficient multi-core processors.
When it comes to Intel, Coffee Lake Refresh processors are probably what most people are familiar with. The latest generation of Intel Coffee Lake Refresh processors includes the i9-9900K, which retails for approximately $ 550. This model has 8 cores with integrated graphics. However, new Comet Lake-S desktop processors with Core i9-10900K flagship have been unveiled.
Priced at $ 488, the chip has 10 cores, 20 strands, and the ability to increase the frequency to 5.3GHz. Another notable chip in this new series is the Core i7-10700K. It offers 8 cores and 16 threads with a 5.1GHz turbo for only $ 374.
On the other hand, Comet Lake mobile processors are also offered and Core i7-10710U is their leader. Prices for these chips start at $ 281 and go up to $ 443. Comet Lake-H processors are also being developed for gaming laptops. The Core i9-10980HK series is available for $ 853.
If you are looking for a very high-level CPU with full pockets, you can get the third generation AMD Threadripper processor which is the best choice for professional artists, 3D model makers, animators, filmmakers, and scientists. The Threadripper 3990X retails for a whopping $ 3900. This makes it out of reach of buyers of regular PCs and amateur gamers. With 64 cores and 128 threads, this CPU has the ultimate power in providing 3D models and analyzing complex mathematical models.
AMD or Intel? Performance
If you have a certain amount of money to buy a CPU, you have many options. In general, AMD and Intel processors are the same in terms of overall performance. It all comes down to whether you need to do a good multitasking job. Or do you want to play at the highest possible settings?
If you are looking to buy AMD processors, keep in mind that few of them have integrated graphics. Usually, the brand’s high-speed processors do not have integrated graphics. While the AMD Athlon 240GE, priced at a very low price of around $ 80, is equipped with Radeon Vega 3 integrated graphics. This feature makes it suitable for low and medium-level games and video playback with high-quality graphics.
If you want higher quality, you have to come with AMD CPUs with a separate graphics card. For everyday work, AMD AMD Ryzen is suitable because it offers the most PCIe lines. So you can use more SSDs to get your computer up and running quickly. Just keep in mind that AMD processors run hotter than Intel processors, so you should get a supplement fan or liquid cooling system for your new processor.
On the other hand, all Intel GPUs have integrated Intel HD or Iris graphics. So choose any of the models of this brand, you can play a wider range of games or play better quality videos. However, like their AMD rivals, if you want more graphical games, you have to buy a GPU.
With the latest Coffee and Ice Lake processors, Intel beats both AMD Ryzen and Threadripper processors in terms of core-to-core performance. Although this distance is small. The new 10-nanometer 2020 Tiger Lake processors have even more capabilities.
AMD or Intel? Specifications
We reviewed the Ryzen 9 3950X and Intel i9-9900K models for more insight into the performance and price of each processor. Both processors have a lot of power, but each has its own pros and cons.
As mentioned earlier, the Ryzen 9 3950X has 16 cores and 32 threads. It also supports dual-channel memory and a 64 MB cache. With this processor with a base speed of 3.5 GHz and a clock speed of 4.7 GHz, you can play games or anything at breakneck speed.
The Intel i9-9900K has half the core and strings of the Ryzen 9 3950X, but with a slightly stronger single-core performance, it makes up for some of its weaknesses. The i9-9900K has a base speed of 3.6 GHz and a clock speed of up to 5 GHz. Also, compared to the 105 watts of Ryzen 9, it consumes only 95 watts of power. Although it is almost half as efficient. Of course, with Intel integrated graphics, you will have full HD and 4K video and graphics support without the need for a separate graphics card.
AMD or Intel? Technical support and customer service
In this regard, both companies have websites to provide technical services to customers, which of course does not include Iranian customers. The after-sales service and warranty of the importing and selling companies are at best a joke and are in fact an insult to the customer. Therefore, no further explanation is needed in this regard. There is no warranty and technical support for AMD and Intel in our country. Share your thoughts and experiences with us and other readers.
