Thread: Intel vs. AMD vs. others

  1. #1

    Cool Intel vs. AMD vs. others

    This could get ugly, but mainly I want to know what hardware you actually run on (primarily), not which company you like better or which processor you would buy if you had the money.

    I run on AMD. I like them b/c they are very inexpensive right now.

    Play Nice
    openSUSE 11.0

    Tried many distros and I just keep coming back to my venerable SUSE!

    Desktop systems - AMD.
    Laptops - Intel since that is what is in the thinkpad. Motorola also
    since I have a Powerbook.

    Sigh...I wanted a Core 2 Duo system, but I couldn't get the socket 775 cpu installed without bending all those tiny little pins on the newly-designed 775 motherboard. I built a socket 775 system, but it died after a few days. I took the cpu out, and discovered that every single pin was bent. I installed it wrong, I guess. So then I sold the cpu and just bought an AMD board and cpu. Much easier to install.

    Code:
    jim@linux-3obf:~> cd /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM
    jim@linux-3obf:/proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM> cat temperature
    temperature:             27 C
    Not bad for $109 @ Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Brisbane 2.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

    I have laptop:

    HP dv9700z with one of the new AMD 2x 2.6GHz "puma" cpus

    My old XP 1700+ runs fine on an old machine with new softare.
    Now I have an outdated 64 3200+ but suse is not complaining.

    AMD is a habit to me now, forgot why...

    Can't believe I'm the first guy to pick Intel. I can't possibly be the only person using an Intel-based system with openSUSE...

    Cheers,

    I agree, I thought tberewould be more Intel users.

    Currently using an Intel Core2 Duo on an ASUS Board.


    Only using 32bit OpenSUSE, though, since I only have 1GB of RAM.

    Cool topic, by the way.

    Dare I suggest that $£ may be an issue in some cases. Lets be realistic - when you build your box $£ does come in to the equation. My CPU's hardly ever break into a trot - even with VBox running XP. I get more thrashing from the _64 Flash browser plug-in.

    I may be wrong, but I suspect AMD may be has more users in Linux. I always consider Intel to the domain of Speed freaks and gamers. No offence intended KV!
    But of course there is no reason why you should or shouldn't use either. And if I'm honest, I probably would have chosen Intel if they had been cheaper at the time I built my box a year ago.
