LO UNICO MALO QUE TIENE AMD ES EL EXCESO DE TEMPERATURA Y CONSUMO, POR LO DEMAS ENTRE PRECIO Y PRESTACIONES ES EL MEJOR YA QUE NO NECESITAS UN I7 PARA PODER HACER PRACTICAMENTE CUALQUIER COSA, EXCEPTO GRANDES EMPRESAS O DERROCHADORES Y AMANTES DE INTEL O FAN-INTEL.
AMD 1090T = 8.5 vs INTEL I5 3470 = 8.3 he only bad thing HAS AMD IS THE EXCESS OF TEMPERATURE AND CONSUMER otherwise price-performance IS THE BEST SINCE NO NEED A I7 ORDER TO PRACTICALLY DO ANYTHING EXCEPT LARGE COMPANIES OR wasteful and LOVERS OF INTEL OR FAN-INTEL .
unfortunately money talks
What happened AMD? Your GPU drivers still have artifacts every other driver update. And your processors need heavy coolers just to make them come close to a intel processor at stock. You were doing so well with the ATI HD 5870 and the 1090T six core processor. Then suddenly your drivers start going down hill , And you bulldozer series ends up worse than the previous series of processors that were good. And instead of making a comeback like you did in the past, You come out with Vishera that is no different than bulldozer except higher clock speed and power consumption. And the GPU drivers are still not great. I do hope you improve AMD. I do love the R7 and R9 series GPU's, But the drivers can make it difficult to enjoy them. I just hope you can finally get your drivers right again like they were 3-4 years ago. And I hope you come out with a nice efficient and powerful high end enthusiast processor. We need that competition back to keep the CPU and GPU prices down.
