Intel Core i7 6700K

Report a correction
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Significantly higher clock speed 4 GHz vs 2.9 GHz Around 40% higher clock speed
Higher turbo clock speed 4.2 GHz vs 3.5 GHz More than 20% higher turbo clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 28 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 8 MB vs None Compared to all cpus, 8 MB l3 cache is just OK
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once

I would also look to IBM. Since your server is on the health care system. I would think it gets the instructions of updated material from many other servers around the world. Amd & Intel are not the only chips made in the world. Just the most common in the United States.
It would depend on what the server is in relation to what the desktops are doing with it. If they are interacting with the server in a passive sense. Then AMD would answer alot of the memory issues as well as the cache. While its said that hyper threading is on the Intel chips. Its virtual. Its good but, you have to have a system up and running first. For virtual to connect. If the desktops are independent of the server, they are each there own machine. If they are on the server 24/7 then they would be a terminal of the server. In a sense hubs to the main. What is the server using as the system chip? It would also depend on if the server is in house meaning main frame or is used with communication as well via the net? The maintenance of a system any system is key to machines running smooth.
dunhill33...I am looking for new desktops/AIO for our health office. we have a server that houses our EHR and we find that it's easy for some systems to lag if they lack cache, speed, yada yada yada. Would we be ok with AMD processors or are the jobs we are doing more suited for Intel chips? Thanks!
What a dumb website, you can't even compare the new gens.
You people are a trip. Your statement of more AMD junk! Interesting thought since every game played online has been created using the very chip your calling junk. AMD is the most requested chip used since the gaming requires graphics on a higher demand yet not in a calculative sense. Intel is used in business cause of the ability to calculate numbers. Intel is impressive in demo mode and if junk is classified via price. Well then Intel is what your looking for. Its not going to present GPU nor will it work in conjunction with power or memory since if your going to spend the top dollar for the chip why not buy the whole deal. AMD rarely has cooling issues. Its not a lower chip. Depends on your own understanding of what your looking for. If your gaming how could you use any other chip or graphics then it was designed with, and expect its going to be better? If the price means nothing to you buy them both.
A Bugatti is a VW, but then so is an Audi, Lamborghini, Porsche, Skoda, Seat, Bentley, etc. So that's like comparing itself against itself!!!
Lol no, Intel has Hyperthreading which gives the i7 4 threads. Plus the i7-6500u has a higher overall cache compared to the A9-9410.
Yeah nobody said that the two chips were equal. CPUboss, and their sister site, GPUboss are just to compare two chips. There is no real reason or rhyme as to why two chips are compared. I am not disagreeing though. On the contrary, I agree fully. Nobody should be saying how "crap" this AMD chip is. The AMD chip is a low end, cheaper chip. AMD has always been an affordable option for people on budgets.
Ya, now that's a real good comparison, a quad core vs a dual core, probably at 10x the price. Like comparing a Bugati to a VW, just unrealistic. Any negative AMD remarks here are only from the brainless.
more AMD junk
