Do you prefer Intel or AMD as a processor

#1
Hello there,
I'm currently using an AMD Ryzen processor, and my friend an Intel processor. But I got another friend who need to change his processor, and who doesn't know which one to buy.
Do you prefer AMD Ryzen or Intel processor ?
Which one is best for Gaming ?
And which one for coding and editing videos ?

I personnaly prefer AMD for coding and editing videos, but I'd like to have your opinion about it

Make sure your motherboard is compatible with whatever you choose.

I have always used AMD for my desktop computers (since 2003) but I don't really know which one is better. I got help building my first computer and my impression was that gamers prefered AMD back than. Since then I have only replaced the motherboard and CPU once. I'm currently using an AMD A4 5300 (3.6 GHz Dual-Core). Relativly cheap but I don't play much games anymore so it's good enough for me.

It really depends on what you really want.
Intel has a really good single-core performance and AMD has better multi-threading support.
When is comes to games, single-core dominates. Though I am not sure of coding, video editing is best with a lot of threads.
Intel has a good market hold which AMD had lost in the previous years. Don`t be misled though, AMD is really picking up.
If you are going much gaming, I would say an Intel i7 Quad/Hexa Core does the job. If you are really into video editing, I say AMD Ryzen 7 Octa Core CPU. 
If budget is a factor, AMD is a clear choice.

Tip: Be sure to keep an eye on the to be released AMD Ryzen 4th Gen. It might turn the tables.

I've only ever used AMD in my life from what I remember. As a kid I often used my mom's PC which might have been Intel but I don't know.
Even though I've only used AMD, I'm not biased towards them. I have become very familiar with their issues and common peculiarities.

From what I understand about the difference in actual architecture, I believe that Intel CPUs are better used in server and data machines, while AMD's processors are better for client experience. AMD's APUs are also a great way to get a little extra graphic power if you are not willing to buy a graphics card.

However, for development/coding and rendering/editing I have a feeling that Intel's faster math/data processing could make these tasks faster.

Take what I said as you will though; I've never used an Intel CPU long enough to get to know it.

i had really bad experience with AMD in the past but i've to say with Ryzen CPUs things are changing

AMD for performance without breaking your bank account. Been using AMD cpu for years and never had a problem.

Presently I am using an almost 12 year old Desktop PC for my personal usage.

Core 2 Quad Q6600
(4+2) 6GB DDR-III RAM
610GT basic PCIe GPU
Mechanical 7200RPM SATA HDD

Running Windows 10 fine (bit slow due to No SSD) & I do personal video editing with lot of patience (takes hell lot of time in encoding/rendering).

But when I look back, in this 12 years of hard use, this CPU has done such wonderful job for me. Held up so well with such pressure for a whole decade. I used to Over Clock (now I cant due to no motherboard support) it in its early life & even now, it spends so many hours at 100% load while rendering videos in Premier.

Time is coming for me to look for an upgrade & although I want to go towards Ryzen but added cost of GPU is putting me off. With Intel Core i5 9400, I am getting a built in GPU supported by Premier. Although its (GPU) performance isn't comparable with an external GPU but I get to save some serious money with Intel route compare to Ryzen 5 with no built in GPU.

Thanks.

I prefer to use intel cpu because even though they are initially more expensive than amd cpu, their wattage are usually much lower.
So basically the money I save with electrical bills using intel cpu can be spent elsewhere. 

Some people might say the wattage isn't that big of a deal, but you gotta remember you need to use and buy power supply that can support the cpu demands for that juice.  Then there's also the heat one must take into consideration, which of course requires top quality heatsink or liquid cooling solution.

I still have several computers still in mint condition not because they are intel, it is mostly due to the fact that I never let cpu temp goes more than 55'C.
My cousin who don't know much about computers, keeps having to buy new computer every 2-3 years, i warned him do not let temp goes beyond 80'C, this are the temps that kills the cpu. He average at 84-87'C, after couple of years his cpu gets some sort of cancer and would shutdown no warning.

That would be all

I'm preferring AMD because of the price and power, for games and software that I can use on windows I certainly choose AMD, intel processors are very expensive, but of course it depends on how the computer will be used, if it is for hackintosh I will definitely I prefer intel because of the compatibility, I tried to make a hackintosh with a Ryzen but I had many compatibility problems with the adobe package.
#11
I prefer AMD (Ryzen)
- due to low energy consumption
- good price
- doesn't have as many security problems as intel

Most of the time I have the biggest load of cpu when editing RAW photos and sticking panaromat (multicore performance is great for this)
#12
AMD and intel, nearly the same, for a moment AMD is better after that INTEL better, but the difference is the video board, if you have an not so good CPU with decent video board, this is generally better than a high end CPU with an integrated video board...

So think about this.
#13
Intel is the powerful and lifetime CPU which you can Use it for lots of time in Uptime Mode.
But AMD is the Speedy one which you can using this for gaming or graphical applications for a limited time.

I also using AMD processor because  its liquid technology. its processing speed is also high in comparison with intel.
#15
First thing is what is your motherboard model, because not all of them suitable the processor that you selected, I'm prefer amd ryzen processor, I'm sure that amd processor will most likely to give you more cores and threads for faster and more efficient multitasking, more interesting and advanced technology across the board.

For normal use and development Intel Processor.
For gaming i think AMD is much better depending on the configuration.
#17
I preferred Intel when I got my processor in 2012, an Intel i7 4770k. This was because AMD ran really hot at the time, but Ryzen's recently been a very strong contender for price/performance and I'd definitely go with AMD now.
#18
I have preferred Intel for years but at the current scenario AMD is the best value for price to performance. AMD Zen 3 is also around the corner.  If someone going to build the in 2020 i would suggest to go for AMD. Intel is suggestable if someone who need top fps in games as still Intel is top in single core performance(Not that much difference though)
#19
If you're working and playing, then AMD chips still represent the best bang for your buck, even if Intel CPUs will give you better gaming performance once you get outside the entry-level chips. That's why, for absolute pure gaming performance, Intel CPUs are still the best bet.
#20
To be honest, I'm not sure. For the longest time (and today), AMD processors provided more performance per dollar spent than their Intel counterparts at all entry-level to mainstream price points. This means that if you had $200 to spend on a CPU, you'd get a faster CPU for the money from AMD.
#21
I have been using AMD for over 10 years now and I have never run into performance issues with it. It does heat up, but here in India which processor won't? I have helped my friends build Ryzen systems and they outperform Intel on any given day. I even run Hackintosh on my Ryzen PC.

Above all AMD provides you a good value for money (VFM).
