Here are some very simple things that are different between them:
For gaming systems it is more a question of taste and money than a real difference. Both platforms have their advantages:
Another user said:
Intel processors have a more diverse library of CPUs than AMD, and have higher-end models too, they also have "hyperthreading" which theoretically doubles the amount of cores in your CPU.
Obviously different companies, but besides that AMD processors mu go in motherboard that use an AMD socket and Intel processors must go into an Intel based socket. Intel processors seem to be a bit more expensive but Intel is on top with the newest technology. Many AMD "fans" would argue this.
The AMD Processor is slightly cheaper, however its single core performance is slightly less good than Intel's. AMD also consumes a bit more power than the Intel processors.
Intel processors and AMD processors use a different architecture and AMD tends to be a little bit behind. Intel is working on 14nm and is currently at 22nm, while AMD just now advanced to 28nm.
Dont use AMD ever
Intel tends to make better processors than AMD.
Intel = buissness and work AMD= gaming and raw power
AMD or Intel are both good computer processors depending on your needs.
Celeron for Intel and Sempron for AMD
Truly, not much difference. It's a personal preference, like cars, Ford or Chevy - depends on who you talk to. I like AMD but it's not such a big deal I wouldn't buy or not buy a computer based on AMD or Intel.
AMD is a company, it has a line of chips to compete with Intel's Centrino line. A comparison between similarly speced chips usually comes down to personal preference, though on a whole AMD does tend to be slightly cheaper.
In many ways the AMD processor is considered to be significantly better than the Intel. Intel is attempting to improve their image by adding new features, and AMD is doing much the same.
Amd is just awesome then intel.
