How to choose between Intel and AMD CPU?
At present, the third generation of Intel server-grade CPU Xeon has a maximum of 40 cores, and the third generation of AMD server-grade CPU EPYC has a maximum of 64 cores. For server-grade CPUs, AMD’s price is more competitive, but Intel’s price advantage in terms of entry-level CPUs is even better.
Intel's processors leave people with the impression of being stable, efficient, and durable, while AMD's processors are almost meaningless in terms of heat dissipation, stability, and durability, and only occupy a small market. With AMD's catching up and efforts in recent years, we can't really say who is better, especially in terms of high-core server processors, AMD's price competitive advantage is obvious.
1. CPU stability and compatibility
For a long time in the past, no matter from the comment area of the online trading platform or the post bar forum, we found that the frequency of AMD's rollover cases was quite high. Regardless of whether it is a DIY installation party or a direct purchase from a manufacturer, the AMD Ryzen version often requires users to spend more time tuning, otherwise it is easy to have memory compatibility problems. This is the past situation and impression, and it is also why the market share has always been The main reason for being at a disadvantage, but in recent years, AMD's problems in this area have been greatly improved.
Since Intel, as the leader in the industry, maintains a closer cooperative relationship with major software and hardware developers all year round, the absolute leading market share also promotes developers to target Intel's Core platform at the beginning of development. performance optimization. Especially in games, the performance is more obvious. After all, whether the game optimization is done well or not almost determines the smoothness of loading, running, saving and reading files. The ecological environment of Intel hardware is relatively comprehensive, and the compatibility will naturally give users more Good experience, better stability.
2. PC-level processor,
Starting from the 11th generation Core, Intel has updated the built-in core display of the CPU, and adopted the new Iris Xe core display of the 11th and 12th generation Core processors. The number of EU execution units has been increased by up to 50%. The powerful graphics rendering capability makes Computers equipped with a new generation of Intel processors can still run major online games or productivity office software smoothly without a dedicated graphics card.
AMD's performance on the PC side should still be at a disadvantage, and its market share is even worse.
3. Server class processor
AMD's cost performance is crushing Intel, especially in the price of high-end core CPU, the price is very advantageous. In terms of low-end core CPUs, AMD has no advantage, especially in terms of the third-generation server CPUs of the two, so I won’t give examples here
