A little question about the Intel vs. AMD cpus

Hello everyone,

 

I have a, maybe for you guys, simple question.

Is an good AMD Zen 2 CPU at tasks, ie gaming, movie encoding, zipping, computing, text processing and so on always better preforming than a Intel counterpart?

 

So will AMD always preform its tasks better then Intel?

Or does Intel still preform better at one of the main tasks a cpu is designed for...?

 

I hope that you can give me a clear answer.

Probably with some charts if possible...

 

Thanks,

Right now, the only thing Intel wins at is gaming when comparing top end vs top end, IE 10900k vs 3950x. However, rumors, taken with a grain of salt, indicate that the upcoming Ryzen CPUs will beat the intel chips at EVERYTHING.. gaming included. But again, we will know 100% when the true reviews are out come November 5th.

It's a Ferrari vs a Lamborghini. Both kick ass, it's simply a matter of preference at the limits

At the moment, Intel has the newest CPU's, as their 10th gen parts released after Ryzen 3000 (Zen 2).

For example, if you compare a Ryzen 5 3600 vs. an i5 10400F you'll see they are about equal with the same amount of cores/threads and very similar single core perfomance.

Something like a 10700K vs 3800X is a similar sort of comparison, as the Intel chip has superior single core performance (with the same amount of cores/threads).

With Ryzen 9/Intel i9 you do have a core/thread difference, with AMD having more cores (but less single core performance), so at that point it depends on what is more important.

 

So AMD doesn't always perform better, but does at some points, while Intel performs better at other options. Just compare the options in your price range and don't chose a specific brand.

Depends on the specific CPU's you're comparing really, as said above.

zen 2=3000 series  zen 3=their new 5000 series about to launch
  Intel 10k series is better at gaming than the 3000 series but for multithreaded tasks the 3000 series tends to do better at multithreaded loads, especially at equal price point.
  The 5000 series from AMDs reports (still waiting for official reviews) will be better than intel ~95% of the time, some tasks will still favor intel, albeit marginally.

intel has better single thread performance.

amd has better multithread/multicore performance 

 

intel is doodoo when it comes to mid tier cpu's compared to amd (price to performance wise),  intels top end multithread performance also leaves much to be desired compared to amd (again, price to performance wise)

at least thats my thought on the matter.

Until Zen 3 releases, unlocked and overclocked Intel chips i7+ 8th gen+ outperform basically anything AMD has to offer in gaming.
