On anther board I am on, there was a recent discussion of the development of a new AMD processor.
A poster chimed in that tasks never use the potential of modern processors and that one can run two games at the same time on the same processor. The argument is that the games use more of video card and other components.
I responded that there is one task that uses most of your processor resources. . . .That is video rendering. I said that I am running an FX-8350 and that if I let my cooling fan get dusty and it is warm in my room, I can have issues with the processor overheating. This basically happens if I have been doing it for hours and I found a simple solution is to open the side of the case.
That same poster however responded how AMD processors are trash, shitty heat manage, shitty power regulation, etc. I decided to type into Google " I7 overheat video" and the same basic issue is described by an i7 owner. As such, it does not appear to be an AMD issue.
The thing is that the FX-8350 gives mid level i7 performance which a fair amount cheaper. I also feel that supporting AMD means that there is competition out there and it keeps Intel prices lower than they would otherwise be. The FX-8350 is relatively popular as well. It is the fifth most popularly benchmarked processor on cpubenchmarks.net. As well, when you look at it on the performance charts, the Intel processors with similar performance are considerably more expensive ($350 vs $150).
I don't see the Intel hate from AMD users but from a certain segment of Intel uses, I see basically a hate boner from the other side. Is it just "tribe?" AMD is the little guy, so it is not hating the establishment either. Is there something that can be learned from this as well?
